Description genekohlenberg 2008-02-27 15:30:32 UTC
I get ballots from an ISO technical committee in RTF format.  If I open the file
with my old MS Word 2000, I get a properly formatted document, but when I open
it with OpenOffice 2.3.1, I get a garbled document.

I have posted the RTF file at  I
have also posted a PDF file printed from MS Word 2000 showing what the document
should look like,  I then posted a
PDF file displaying what OpenOffice Writer shows when it opens the file,

I am using version 2.3.1 on an XP Media Center Edition with Service Pack 2.

please read
For the future, please report only one problem inside one issue. Thanks for your

Problem regarding form fields from RTF is tracked as issue 64040.
The "Image" is a drawing shape; these are currently not supported by OOo's RTF
filter. Already tracked as issue 3790.

In this issue we will care about the reported table problem.

MRU->HBRINKM: see at the top of the attached document, there is a complex table.
This will be imported in many single parts; every inside a text frame.
