Sample .doc file with a page of graphs, saved with LibreOffice Writer 22.214.171.124, showing mangled layout.
When I save a document (this particular one has a number of graphs on one page), as a Microsoft Word 97/2000/XP/2003 (.doc) file, then open it again in the same version of LibreOffice that I saved it with, the formatting is scrambled (in this particular doc, the graphs are scattered all over the place). This problem is even worse saving it as later versions of Word files.
Surely LibreOffice should be able to open files that it has saved itself and keep the formatting right?
This issue is just with reopening a file with the software that orginally saved it - I haven't tested opening with Word myself, but it's reported to be just as scrambled. However, I'm not so concerned with that - because Word has a mind of its own - what I am concerned with is that the software that saved it cannot properly display the file it created itself.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Save document as Microsoft Word 97/2000/XP/2003 (.doc)
2. Close window
3. Open previously saved .doc file again
Current behavior: Formatting is mangled
Expected behavior: Formatting should be the same as when it was saved
Operating System: Fedora

Original .odt file which was saved as the .doc file above
Hi.. I also saw some graphs/charts in page 3 misplaced to page 2 (not exactly same as attached .doc), and the captions' change to top. Saw no other problems.
Tested under 188.8.131.52 - Win7 x86
Pls try to give a clear description for the summary :)
Sorry, i don't understand what's missing from the summary. What would you like me to add?
I can confirm the bug, some graphs and charts from page 3 are moved to page 2 onto the top of original text. (Maybe also other things are mixed up)

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
