Bug#309213: openoffice.org: Export to Word strips formatting from the last paragraph
When exporting an OpenOffice.org document that contains special
formatting in the last paragraph (such as indentation, line spacing,
etc.) the information doesn't make it into a Microsoft Word export.
This can be "fixed" by adding en empty paragraph past the last paragraph
with content, but this can add an extra, blank page to the document.
This can be reproduced by creating a new document, and making the
following changes in Format > Paragraph > Indents & Spacing:
- First line: 0.50"
- Line Spacing: Double
Add a few good sized paragraphs (two or three pages), and save as a Word
document. Open it in Word, and the last paragraph should be
single-spaced with no first line indentation.
I have experienced this behavior in Word 97 and 2000. I have not tested
with Word XP.
