It's an example of what I get.

Only Microsoft takes this file, XPS I think, or Google, something in their G. Shop I think, also. It doesn't go successfully onto my LibreOffice from the Sales' company's webpage; it only puts one page of the eight pages total and then only into LibreOffice Draw, which is useless to me for editing and then sending to the Sale's company's products division. This ability should be for Linux as well in the future so people won't be needing Google or Microsoft anymore and then having more privacy. I'm no expert so I won't be able to make much more advise on this to you. I've made two, one is "TiLite_ZRA-3pdf - LibreOffice Draw" and the other is "TiLite_ZRA-3odg - LibreOffice Draw". The first one I saved to a computer before ad is an attachment below. The second one I just did now and after saving if I can only see it on the computer screen but I can't find where it is placed inside the computer, so I won't be able to attach it below. It doesn't matter, since it is merely a duplicate of the one I attached below. This is not a bug; it is a development you need to make for another revision onto your wonderful no-snoop LO Writer in the hopefully near future.

No problem to open this pdf file in LibreOffice Draw (versions and under Ubuntu 14.10 x86-64). I see 8 pages. I can edit each frame to add some text in it, for example frame "Account #:" on the first page.

Note: LibreOffice is not intended to be a PDF reader. And it is the intended behavior to open pdf files in Draw, not in Writer because each line is seen as a one or several frames, paragraph layout being lost in pdf.

Which LibreOffice version do you use? Current stable version is 4.3.4.

Set status to NEEDINFO. Please set it back to UNCONFIRMED once you have provided requested informations. Thank you for your understanding.
