The Problematic .docx here

The problem is that LibreOffice sets some formulas too down. MS Office has no problem with that. I have comparative screenshot here: http://i.imgbox.com/jWYWb8BM.png (Left is MS Office, right is LibreOffice). I have circled formulas which are appearing too down.

Problematic .docx file is also attached.

I tried that but it's still not exactly as in Word but it's close. (I tried this with the second misplaced formula on the second page.)

Yeah, it's nice to see how things are getting better :)

In Libreoffice, the problem is still there but it has changed a bit.

Before, the formulas were too low in relation to other text, now those are too up. Problems are on the document page 2.

I added a new picture that shows a comparison between MS Office and Libreoffice.

Bug still present in LO

Repro 7.2+. Very minor. Just a=v2/r is up compared to MSO. 

Change from too low to too up was in LO 5.0:
commit 260fe756b3d4294fd0c0957395bf2e77625ef910

        tdf#91122 docx import: fix wrong vertical position of OLE object shape

This is not a regression, but an improvement. 
Still, some explanation would be welcome, so I add László to CC.

Dear Juha,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

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

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
