TextBox reads well as .odt format, but not as .doc or .docx


I am writing a resume headline by using colorful texboxes.

As you can see from the attachment, the file reads well on LibreOffice. However, when I save it as .docx and .doc looks completely changed.

It's a real pity we have the only option to send the file as PDF.

Thanks a lot.

Antonella, you shouldn't have confirmed your own bug, only someone else should set to New. And, doc and docx here are different filters and issues. 

Even with your version 4.3.7. I see that docx is different, no shadow, but doc seems OK when it's reopen with LO.
With newer versions like 5.1.6, both seem fine when saved and opened with LO, but:
1. textbox size from doc doesn't look good in MSO - I change this one to doc only
2. RT docx cannot be open in MSO - I'll open a new bug
