Bug Description

Input file is .docx. When converted to EPUB formatting of first line of para indent in most cases not preserved.

Same error occurs when .docxconverted to .odt using Open Office Version 4 (latest version)

Given nature of file being converted, this is a fatal error; in sense that, unless corrected, will have to seek alternative application to do job.

Supporting data files are: docx in and epub out

Supporting screen shots are:

sourceFile (docx)

epubDocx shows loss of indentation

epubOdt shows same result from odt input.

sigilText: EPUB file read into Sigil

sigilCode: ...

Technical data: Calibre 1.4.0

Note: not clear from this page how to attach more than one supporting file.

Now added input and output but wrong way round, given attachment problems.

Will now attach the screenshots in turn.

Seriously, how I do I request an upgrade to this bug management system to support either multiple attachments at first stage; or, if that offered, clear documentation about how to do that.
