The DOCX document

This is a sample Right-to-Left document that contains text and image merge fields, some of which inside layout tables. Merge fields are spaced apart to appear in the desired positions as rendered in MS Word.

Some absent fonts are substituted by platform fonts in Word and LO which is not at issue here.

The bug is still present in LO 5.2.1 on macOS El Capitan. The only visual difference from the previous year is that some texts in unrecognized fonts are now crossed out.
