Description Rob 2014-05-11 06:06:23 UTC
Problem description: When I close a .docx document with a Table of Contents and reopen it information is lost. The title disappears and the table settings can change to 'Evaluate up to level 1' on reopening.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create document
2. Insert TOC through Insert menu
3. Save the dcocument as .docx (Word 2007-2013)
4. Close LibreOffice
5. Reopen the document
6. Right click on the TOC and select Edit Index/Table
7. Title field is now blank
If the document is created in Word 2013 the Evaluation level also reverts to 1 level. (let me know if that should be another bug)

Current behavior: TOC title disappears when reopening .docx file

Expected behavior: TOC title should be retained on closing and reopening irrespective of format

Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: rc

Hm, strange I got as far as step 6. The TOP title was still showing. But when right-clicking that in the re-opened docx file I do not have an "Edit Index/Table" option in the right-click menu. Tested on OSX though.
