Description Robert 2014-06-27 09:14:18 UTC
Created attachment 101851 [details]
File demonstrating the problem

The attached .RTF file, contains three short sections of text that should appear in columns 1-2 on page 1 and column 1 on page 2, and do so in Word.

In Writer the import results in two problems:

1) The second column on page 1 and the first (and only column) on page 2 should be preceded by two blank lines, but there is only one line present, and
2) The single column on page 2 is split into two columns
Comment 1 Firas Hanife 2014-06-29 11:25:34 UTC
I tried to open the attached file with, and does not split the column in the second page, so there is a regression. and load it as but they split the column in the second page.

Changing Status to NEW.

@Miklos, could you please take a look at it whenever you have some time?
Comment 6 Xisco Faulí 2014-10-20 09:10:02 UTC
It seems that the commit that caused this regression was identified. (Or at
least a commit is suspected as the offending one.)

Thus setting keyword "bisected".
Comment 7 Andras Timar 2015-06-20 21:36:55 UTC
I think fix of bug 82512 fixed this one, too. At least I don't see the problem in 4.4.
