Description johnnynash 2010-08-02 14:32:47 UTC
After creating a text box page and saving it, trying open it with OpenOffice
Writer gives me a bad view.
I can submit created page and many other details - just ask for them by sending
me a message at
I also could post the MS WORD page on my site and then send you the link.
Thanks a lot !

PS I MUST work with IBM Lotus Symphony and / or OpenOffice, but I HAVE TO SEND
my text documents in a MS Word 1997 compatible format.

- Attach the document here using the "Create a new attachment" link.
At best an .odt and the .doc document.
- describe what you mean with "bad text box"
- Which OOo version are you using?

"wrong" means how OpenOffice Writer displays the "sample.doc" MS Word 2003's
I'm using the new 3.2.1 version of Ooo - build 9502.

With an exported we can only see THAT there is something wrong, but not WHY.
Please attach the document in native odt format, so that we can reproduce and
debug the problem. We need to see what's going wrong when exporting to MS Word
Comment 7 johnnynash 2010-08-03 01:46:27 UTC
There is no 'original .odt document' - I was may be a little confused !
Trying to search what's hapenning - I created the 'sample.doc' document in MS
Word 2003 and tried to load it in Writer and the result was an incorrect view !
That's the question - how to import the 'sample.doc' in Writer ?

The other question - 'documents created in Writer that look bad in MS Word' was
not documented by me nor related.
Comment 8 michael.ruess 2010-08-03 12:02:33 UTC
OK, now I understand - the problem is about importing a .doc.

MRU->HBRINKM: open attached document and see all the drawing text boxes located
in the upper right of the page.

Reset assigne to the default "".
