I'm unable to replicate. See attached screens shots and let me know if that is the issue you're experiencing.

what I notice is on filter import opening the anchor for the image on page 3 is positioned outside margins and off the canvas! That is not good.

To see, open and before any changes, adjust the zoom. Then scroll to page 3.

Select the image. 

Check its format, it shows as anchored to character--but the anchor is off the canvas. Simply move the anchor for the image, anchor jumps into the margins. Change the anchor to paragraph.

So, suspect an issue with ww8 filter import, or possibly original source of the .docx document.

Checked the file in Word 2010 and both the frame and image were set to 'top and bottom' wrapping. The frame had 0" horizontal absolute position to the right of column and -0.48" vertical absolute position below paragraph.

Repro in 6.1+ but only with original 2007 DOCX. Same file saved in MSO 2013 wraps right.
Looks like an issue "position that's relative to column in Word" as in Bug 35334.

Dear Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired),

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
