Description Mike Kaganski 2014-04-20 03:25:08 UTC
Created attachment 97631 [details]
Test files and PDFs

The attachment contains the same document saved as DOC and DOCX by MS Word.
They contain an OLE object in footer, that is clipped and adjusted to fit entire page area.

Opening the documents (both DOC and DOCX) in LO and (Build ID: bde1e4dce3e036d2265e22910156ca6345b596ab) under both Win7x64 and Ubuntu 13.10 x64 results in object being not clipped (this option is apparently absent in LO) and scaled wrongly.
This problem is present in OOo 3.3.0 and all versions of AOO, including 4.1.0.beta.

Also in the attachment are PDFs made with MSO and LO, to show the problem.

While this could be considered enhancement request to support new feature, this is a problem impairing interoperability with MSO, so I set it to NORMAL.

Confirmed in Linux Mint in 3.3.0, 4.2.4 and 4.3 beta.

Reproducible with LO, Win 8.1 (even if it looks now a little bit different to the png attachment from LO 4.3 beta)

Since https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=bb646c1472d3b77066b01128baf1c9cafdb40233 (landed in 5-2), DOCX is loaded correctly. There's no UI, though.

Still the same problem with DOC as of
