table with unalign cell across rows

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 page 8, the cell width across rows is not constant. Tested in LibO 4.0+.

Comment 5 Justin L 2017-09-03 01:26:50 UTC
There is a tiny column behind the "shorter" cells which is causing the problem.

Still repo.

As Justin mentioned in comment 5, the original table is 2x7, but gets imported as a 3x7 table causing this issue.

File page 8 compared MSO LO.png

This bug is based on .DOC converted with the microsoft compatibility pack.
Issue in table on page 8 is still reproduced. 
But, no repro for  attachment 154647 [details] .DOC created using MSO 2016 to save DOCX as DOC.
MSO still opens correctly that attachment 97844 [details] .DOC.
We may leave this open with low priority.

This report is for page 8. Jay opened more bugs for the same file. Other reports should be always referenced in See Also. I don't see a report for background image position on page 1 for DOCX fileopen. As shown in attachment. I guess it's reported elsewhere.
