Notice that the default table wrap mode is not compatible with MS Word. There are also other factors result in the abnormal tables.
Comment 4 Lei Debin 2012-06-14 06:44:07 UTC
one part of the issue is caused by the frame wrap value.
If change the Frame--wrap value from "Optimal" to "Parallel", the result will much better.
For other issue need more investigation

The problem is that table wrap mode in Writer is not compatible with MS Word.
Table in MS Word can be wrapped around with text, while it has no such property in Writer. So loading table from doc, it should be wrapped by a fly frame to implement the wrap property in Writer.

The wrap setting for frame could be "None","Before","After","Parallel",and "Optimal", while table in MS Word has two kinds of wrap setting, such as "Around" and "None". And Writer map "Around" table to "Optimal" frame wrap for interoperability.

Currently the setting "Optimal" for frame will lead to the table layout display improperly. since it would reassign the frame wrap setting to one of "Before","After","Parallel". The "Before" and "After" frame setting is NOT compatible with table wrapping from my investigation. 

So the solution is mapping the "Around" table wrap setting to "Parallel" frame wrap setting which is more likely as shown in the Word. The patch choose sprmPFInTable <0x2416> to determine whether the paragraph is in a table.
