When opening the attached .doc file in LibreOffice the text and checkboxes are not aligned (they overlap), look at point 3 "Reparații curente", and "Termoizolații".
Apparently the text was indented using spaces (not very reliable). I tried installing the font used with ttf-mscorefonts-installer, but the alignment is still wrong.

See attached PDF on how it is supposed to look like.

Rather trivial to change Tab spacings and replace multiple spaces with TABs. But, OK this poorly structured document does have problems.

This seems very strange to me. In Word, the "space" character is MUCH wider than it is in LO. How can that be?

spaceWidth2003.docx: docx simplified version - easy to see/change compat settings.

The spacing width seems to be related to the compatibility setting <w:balanceSingleByteDoubleByteWidth/>
By toggling the compatibility option "Balance SBCS characters and DBCS characters", the width of the space changes significantly.
