Bug Description

Binary package hint: openoffice.org-writer

1) lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 11.04
Release: 11.04

2) apt-cache policy libreoffice-writer
libreoffice-writer:
  Installed: 1:3.3.3-1ubuntu2
  Candidate: 1:3.3.3-1ubuntu2
  Version table:
 *** 1:3.3.3-1ubuntu2 0
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     1:3.3.2-1ubuntu5 0
        500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ natty-updates/main i386 Packages
     1:3.3.2-1ubuntu4 0
        500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ natty/main i386 Packages

3) What is expected to happen in LibreOffice Writer via the Terminal:

cd ~/Desktop && wget https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openoffice.org/+bug/424044/+attachment/2287815/+files/example.odt && lowriter -nologo example.odt

save to .doc and open the .doc it looks the same as the .odt.

4) What happens instead is the embedded Math equation is resized. The Math equation changes from:

size 21{ Prod cSub { size 14{ ital "k="1} } cSup { size 14{N} } {p rSub {size 14 {k}
}^{size 14 n_{size 10 k} } } }

in the .odt to:

size 12{ Prod cSub { size 8{ ital "k="1} } cSup { size 8{N} } {p rSub { size 8{k} } rSup { size 8{n rSub {k} } } } } {}

in .doc.

Do you still have this issue with the new version in Ubuntu 9.04 with the ppa at https://launchpad.net/~openoffice-pkgs/+archive/ppa or Ubuntu Karmic?

Hi Chris,

Yes this was tested in Karmic, using openoffice.org-writer 1:3.1.1-1ubuntu2. What do you think this issue is due to?

This appears to be a problem in ooo-build, I was not able to reproduce it with upstream OOo 3.1 or dev300m49 (OOo 3.2).

David Bensimon, could you please attach the .odt file that when saved into .doc, reproduces your screenshots?
