Sample documents showing error
If I use pandoc to generate a docx file that contains tables and I open it in Writer, the tables extend way off the screen. MS Office opens it correctly. If I tell pandoc to generate an ODT, it appears better in Writer.
Thanks for filing this, Brian.
I confirm the problem in a daily build from 2016-04-20 and in LibreOffice 3.3.4. Both on Linux.
Could it he that pandoc creates some 'special' docx?

If I open the default pandoc generated docx file in MS Word and then I save it again, it changes the attributes for the table. I am willing to guess that with the attributes that pandoc writes to the file, that it could render correctly in LO, but some attribute is not set to a default. Anyway, I attached the two extracted document.xml files for compare and contrast. I am not an expert on docx format.

Neither am I.
Miklos, maybe this is of interest for you?

Obviously I did a diff, but that resulted in nothing clearly useful.
And there are many properties that I should start to study first ;)

*** Bug 101767 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Repro in LO 6.5+.
But, if DOCS resaved in MSO (any option: DOC, DOCX, compatible DOCX), it opens fine.
Similar to duplicated bug 101767 with attachment 127055 [details] which is resaved in MSO as attachment 156435 [details] .
