table with document title not position correctly

I downloaded the .docx file found at < http://download.microsoft.com/documents/rus/microsoft4you/How_to_license_the_operating_system_Windows_8_new.docx > and used the microsoft compatibility pack to convert it to a .doc file. Then i opened the .doc file in LibO and on the first page, the table with the title is incorrectly positioned. This is a regression since 4.1.

Comment 2 Jorendc 2014-04-26 13:30:03 UTC
Reproducible, tested using Windows 8.1 with LibreOffice Version:
Build ID: f4a6837025a293312cbc43b9c527851362f11030
TinderBox: Win-x86@47-TDF, Branch:MASTER, Time: 2014-04-26_09:21:18

It is even worse in 4.3 (see my bug report: bug 77723).

Kind regards,
Comment 3 Jorendc 2014-04-26 13:50:21 UTC
Also reproducible using Windows 8.1 with LibreOffice Version: 
Build ID: 1c1366bba2ba2b554cd2ca4d87c06da81c05d24

Indeed NOT reproducible using Version (Bouw-id: 2e2573268451a50806fcd60ae2d9fe01dd0ce24)

Reproducible using Versie: 
Build ID: 89ea49ddacd9aa532507cbf852f2bb22b1ace28

So, indeed a regression between 4.0 vs 4.1 branch.
Comment 4 Joel Madero 2014-05-30 05:58:35 UTC
This one was a bit rough to bibisect - the dialog has changed and the new one doesn't have horizontal/vertical position - instead it has other values that always seems to be saying 0" but something indeed is changing. Hope the bibisect is correct.

Comment 5 Michael Stahl (CIB) 2014-07-04 22:32:32 UTC
the problem is that the table used to be imported wrapped inside
a text frame (to fake floating table) but now it's a plain table.

regression from:

    Related: fdo#61594 SwWW8ImplReader::StartApo: don't always start a frame

well since Writer can't do floating tables we can't handle
every document perfectly...
