Sample file to show tabs forced, and single tab failure
In order to get a tab separator to show, it has to be entered twice (\tab \tab ).
If a writer file is saved as Rtf, then only a single \tab is written, but on re-opening, that is lost.
I can confirm. I even set two tab stops in the paragraph style and used both of them and only the first was displayed.
MS Word Viewer displays the extra tabs so it is a fileopen issue.

184.108.40.206 displays the extra tabs.
Adding Miklós to CC.
But when opening as a sub-document from a master (in 220.127.116.11), the tab is nonoured, so any second tab added to force the spacing (see previous comment) is also honoured, and too much space results!

If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice
(5.1.5 or 5.2.1 https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and
your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior

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)
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

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!
The bug is still present in 18.104.22.168, on Ubuntu 16.04 (r-1)
Fixed - likely by the fix for bug 105095 and thus fixed in 5.4.0.
(There are a few other bugs that really mangle this document on repeated round-trips though. Lost page breaks, header text moves into footnote.)
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 105095 ***

This part should be fixed in 6.1 (bug 106062)
Good, thank you!
Justin - following your references to other bugs (#5), are you taking ownership of those?

No. If those issues are important to you, please create new, separate reports for each bug.
