Build Identifier: LibreOffice

I decided to create some drawings in LibreOffice and to test it as it follows:
1. Open it in Microsoft Word 2007
2. Open it in Microsoft Word Online (their web version)
3. Re-open it with LibreOffice 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Download original file
2. Save it in DOC or DOCX
3. Open it with Microsoft Word or LibeOffice
Actual Results:  
DOC: text in rectangle-box is not rotate, the one line is shorter
DOCX: text in rectangle-box is rotate in MS Word 2007, but it is rotated in MS Word web version, but not as original, the lines are missing
LibreOffice (reopening DOCX): rectangle size is changed, text not shown as original, arrow lines are missing

Expected Results:  
Document should be shown correctly at least in LibreOffice, but as well as in Microsoft Word.

Repro. Yet, separate reports should be created for all issues.

Stripped Down Line Issue

One report should only have a single bug in it.[1]

Let's track the issue here with the arrows disappears export to docx.

The Text Boxes look good when opened in Word, so this may be a FILEOPEN issue that affects rotated/grouped text boxes. This is should be filed as a separate report.

The MS-DOC issue appears to be a limitation of the MS-DOC spec that I'm not sure is even a valid issue.

This is a regression. Saving with LO 4.2 resulted is the arrows being properly exported. They could be opening in both LO 4.2 and Word 2013.

There is some attribute of these lines that is confusing the exporter. Normal lines export to .docx fine.

This, too started at the following commit, like bug 112312 and bug 122962. I assume this is rather an implementation error, than a regression, but let's keep the keywords that match the user perspective.
