Here be the .doc file that Word couldn't see properly Last four words should be "wooden floor at Northrop."
I used LO to create a text document which I saved as a .doc file and sent the file to someone who opened it with MS word. She reported that the final sentence in the file was incomplete. I sent her the raw text from the file, and she reported that the last four words of the .doc file were not present. I am able to open the .doc file and see all the text with LO Writer. (I don't have MS Word).
On Windows 10 Pro 64-bit en-US
The .doc file opens in Word 2007 and displays the correct last four words on the paragraph on the line.
However if uploaded to a OneDrive instance and opened with Office365/Word Online (2016), the "wooden floors at northro" are rotated into vertical text anchored left, the "p." is lost. Attempting to edit in Word Online fails with its file conversion and suggests editing in Desktop MS Word.
Perform a Copy and Paste Special -> Unformatted Text of the document into a new writer document, then save that as Word 97-2003 format. On upload to OneDrive it has the same misformatting of the last sentence when preview opened in Office365 Word Online. When edited in Word Online it displays a note that it has reformatted the text--and the full last sentence is rendered.
Inclined to say not our bug, but obviously an interoperability issue if common occurrence into Word 2013/2016.
Will test on additional desktop installs of Word--2010, 2013, 2016.

NEW creation of ORIGINAL .txt file as "save as" Microsoft Word 97-2003 .doc file from LO 22.214.171.124 : 126.96.36.199 available...
I CANNOT VERIFY THE FIX BY MYSELF AS I DO NOT HAVE MICROSOFT WORD!
I used the ORIGINAL .txt file and opened it with LO 188.8.131.52. "save as" Microsoft Word 97-2003 .doc file. Please open .doc with Microsoft Word (V <something>). S'OK? Great then, all fixed. (version created from LO 184.108.40.206 Beta2 on request.)
Seems the same as bug 108772, and doesn't appear to be fixed to me. Let's close as duplicate.
