Description Eudien 2015-09-21 09:53:50 UTC
The doc or docx documents created by Microsoft Office 2007, which contains paragraph with fixed line spacing or min line spacing settings, those line spacing are not able to display correctly or be modify their spacing value in Libreoffice Writer.
ps: doc or docx documents created and saved by Libreoffice Write with the same settings are correctly displayed in both Micorsoft Office 2007 and Libreoffice Writer though.

Hi Eudien,

Could you provide a file which has both fixed and min line spacing, as both ones you sent only had min line spacing?
Comment 5 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2015-09-22 14:46:16 UTC
Testing attachment 118920 [details] and attachment 118921 [details] and the correct value of 30pt and 36pt appear in the paragraph dialog but dont actually affect the text when the value is set or changed.

Saving it to a new file or to odt doesnt fix the issue. @Maxim: Any insights?

fixed line spacing

Sorry about the trouble. Add attachment with fixed line spacing, and forget to mention that it appears only in Windows Version that the settings are not displayed.

LO vs Word Viewer

Hi Eudien,

Thank you for your assistance. I can confirm that attachment 118954 [details] and attachment 118955 [details] show in the paragraph dialog atleast 30pt in the first paragraph and fixed 46pt in the second paragraph, but they dont visually show this on the page.

Samples with various line spacing setting in .odt

In fact this is an formatting issue caused by text grid, regardless of file format ( see attached .odt file ). Specifying fixed, at least, and leading line spacing doesn't work if text grid is enabled. User can disable the text grid from page style.
