Created attachment 85593 [details]
Writer document displaying badly

Attached file doesn't display correctly - the first few pages will, but farther down some paragraphs get badly mangled. Editing offending paragraphs make them blow up completely. The file shows fine in LibreOffice

Note: working with Windows 10, reported by user of Windows 7.

Reported in at the community forum.

Reproduce on Win7 x64 Pro
What is the origin of this document?
If I copy / paste a wrong part into a new file, text is correct.

That's a copy from Wikipedia - I asked for a neutral sample. I PM'ed the OP and hope he'll explain, but many people who ask questions never come back, they may not think it worth the trouble.

Weird, because these articles are not in Times 35pt.

No, the OP applied that formatting afterwards, for reasons of his/her own.

I copied part of that same Wikipedia page, cleared all formatting, then applied 36 pt TNR and the text blew up in my face. It looked fine in LibreOffice. 

I concede that TNR 36 pt is not a setting that I'd recommend for use in body text, but apparently AOO reaches a limit here, and the question should be: do we want that?
