Description mmtsuchi 2016-03-17 23:51:18 UTC
Created attachment 123678 [details]
Original ODT

1. I started LibreOffice writer 5.
2. I created a legend balloon (). Pointing just here → . ← .
3. I saved as Microsoft 2007-2013 docx document.
4. I closed.
5. … waiting for disk to stop making noises
6. I reopened in Libreoffice.
7. As a result, the legend balloon disappeared.

Saving as .odt makes no problem (of course :-))

Remarque : The text (in fact, the wole legend) is present in document.xml (inside the docx).

Repro 7.1+. 
DOCX opens without callout in LO and doens't open in MSO at all. 
If saved as DOC, callout is there both in LO and MSO, but not correct.

With 7.4+, LO saved DOCX opens with callout text but without callout link in LO. In MSO, it opens similarly but worse, text is of wrong font (Lucida Handwriting in this case). 
Note that MSO opens ODT with callout link and with same wrong font. 

With thanks for dealing with this bug, I think this should be reopened.
