Description Jeffrey Green 2016-05-08 21:07:35 UTC
When I open certain files originally written in MS WORD, multiple, sometimes 100s of carriage returns are added before and after the text of the note. This happens with only one type of file, which was formatted with a different page size and margins. Also, very frequently, the text of an email is added in many places to a file.

Thanks for filing Jeffry.
Can you please add a test file?

Thanks for the test file by mail. Jeffrey.
I made a simpler example (would have thought we already have in issue for this..)
Comment 5 Timur 2017-08-08 14:16:02 UTC
Looks similar to attachment 102178 [details] from Bug 67106 where spaces at the end are ignored. So it's 1 page in Word and 2 page in Writer.

Looks like a duplicate of Bug 40787. Can stay open though.
