Libreoffice Writer's rendering of the RTF document

Libreoffice Writer renders RTF wrongly. I've attached image file rtf-msw.png showing how the document should be rendered correctly compared to what Libreoffice Writer produces (rtf-low.png).  The actual RTF document used is also attached (document.rtf).

correct mime-type
Comment 4 Cor Nouws 2014-05-09 11:21:35 UTC
Thanks Miguel for the issue.

As I can see it, the problem is that the header at the top of page 2 is placed at the bottom of page one in Writer. Is that correct?
Comment 5 Miguel Guedes 2014-05-09 11:34:41 UTC
Not a problem!

There's a few issues (which I should have really detailed in my OP), namely:

  * The spacing in the top header is off; especially item 1.

  * The comments column on the right (peach) should fill vertically each item-block 1, 2 and 3.
  * Comment for item 2.1 overlaps with item 2.2's.

  * Comment for item 3.4 is non-existent.
Comment 6 Miguel Guedes 2014-05-09 11:36:37 UTC
Also, Cor, you may be right in that the heading for item 2 may be wrongly positioned and should instead be following the block on the next page.
Comment 7 A (Andy) 2015-04-06 18:32:06 UTC
In comparison to Comment 5 there are several improvements (these issues are for me no longer reproducible).

But there are still some rendering problems reproducible with LO, Win 8.1:
- Heading 1 at the beginning of the comment is not bold
- Page breaks at wrong positions (buggy within the whole document)
- Numbering problems (font characterics of the numbering are not correct: Arial 12 Normal Black instead of Arial 11 Bold Blue), numbering mistake at No. 2 (changed to 3 and a 2 added before) 
- Tick in item 1 of section 4. Declaration is missing
- Missing line break before item "Date" in section 4. Declaration
- In sections 1 to 3 the frames at the end of the comment column is missing
