Bug Description

When converting an EPUB book to DOCX (Calibre 3.5), with subsequent in-line images,
the DOCX result contains the images all overlapped on one page.

Notice page 11 of the DOCX file after converting the attached EPUB file.

Operating System: OS X 10.12.6

The images also come out significantly smaller then in the EPUB.
It would very useful to enlarge them in the process.

I'm somewhat confused. I converted the attached epub to docx, the only overlapping images I could see in the first 20 pages was on page 13 titled "Chief Abbreviations" and those are block images and not inline images (well technically they are inline images each one inside its own block). Are those the images you meant?

In any case, I will fix the problem with the Chief Abbreviations images, let me know if you meant something else.

Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every alternate Friday.

Kevid, I was referring to the "Chief Abbreviations," but I have observed the problem with other books as well.
Thank you for looking into it!

Also, would it be possible to insert the images into the DOCX file in such a way that they would be comparatively larger, as they are in the EPUB file?
