Description Robert Markowitz 2015-08-18 17:37:48 UTC
Trying to import a Word document. Should be 2 columns of "business cards" with 5 "cards" in each column. LibreOffice only imports the left column, and appears to only give the top 3 cards. Since the "cards" contain personal information, I prefer to control who receives them and cannot attach them here for public availability.
Comment 1 V Stuart Foote 2015-08-19 03:43:12 UTC

Please redact the details with filler, and attach test document.

Also, rather bad form to set your own issue as NEW--especially as you've given no substantive steps to reproduce with details of how to create a new document of similar style and formatting.

This is the original Word document. It should have two columns of "business cards"

This is the output after I tried using Libre Office to import it. As you can see, the entire right column is omitted.
Comment 5 Robert Markowitz 2016-09-13 11:51:16 UTC
Here are the "before" and the "after" of my effort to import a docx file. As you can see, the right column is omitted after importing. If you need additional information, please let me know. I think we had gone through all this effort before.

Closing as dupe, to a newer one as I happened to confirm it before.
I verified that Robert's file works with LibreOffice 3.6 just like 102012.
