Description ccheney 2009-03-24 02:11:20 UTC
From the Ubuntu bug report:
Open an MSOffice Word 2002 SP3 template (.dot) with OpenOffice Text

Use the template : add text, some pictures

Save the document as MSOffice 97/2000/XP
At this time the document seens OK

Re-open the saved MS Office document in OpenOffice 3 (above release) :
a) trouble displaying the tables for the 2 first pages
b) space between paragraph number and text for <Titre 1> style (and ithe title
styles also) has changed (text moved from 0,75 cm to 6 cm + tab has been moved
to 5.25 cm to 6 cm

At this step then document form has chaned but still can be used in OpenOffice
Openning thig document in MS Word 2002 SP3 however makes the document cannot be
used :
- number of pages moves from 6 to 112 (approximatly 1 ligne per page !)

Found workarround: saved the document as RTF. Some formatting also lost but
usable in MSOffice

Added some attachement to show what appends (1 zip archive file)
- = original MSOffice Template
- CRooo3doc_asMS97.doc = saved as MS Word 97/2000/XP (never openned in MS Word
at this step)
- CRooo3doc_asRTF.rtf = saved as RTF (seems to be acceptable workarround)
- oo3_about.jpg = screen copy of my openOffice version (included in documents)

Confirmed on official OOo 3.0.1

The problem regarding incorrect table handling in export of OO 3.0.1 is already
tracked as issue 99024. Fixed in 3.1. This also fixes the problem expanding the
page numbers; is now correctly at 6 pages in OO 3.1.
Comment 2 michael.ruess 2009-03-24 13:32:40 UTC
The fact, that the tab character in the negative first line indent of the "Titre
1" paragraphs is incorrectly adapted is already tracked as issue 98691.

This issue will now focus on the problem regarding the wrong tab character
position of the "Titre 1" after export to WW8 format.
Comment 3 michael.ruess 2009-03-24 13:52:29 UTC
MRU->OD: see on page 3 of the document. In the Headings, there is a tap stop at
5,25 cm. Export the document and reopen (even in MSW) -> the tab character is
now located at 6 cm.
