Bug ID: 115944
           Summary: Render differences of DOCX between Word and LO/AOO
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: release
          Hardware: x86-64 (AMD64)
                OS: Mac OS X (All)
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Writer

It looks to me as if word spacing and character kerning are slightly different
for the same document rendered by Word vs LO, resulting in a cumulative “error”
that causes different numbers of words per line.  That shows in the footnote
which stretches footnote’s box, thus causing the new paragraph to be pushed to
the next page (Word) or not (LibreOffice).

The net effect of this ripples through the entire document, resulting in
different page counts and paragraphs being placed on different pages. For
example, a document I work with contains chapter 41 in Word on page 195
(effective 232 of 427) whereas that same chapter 41 in LibreOffice is on 183
(effective 212 of 435).

This, in turn, becomes a problem if the author types out page numbers instead
of using internal references: the pages numbers in the text then represent in
no way the page numbers of the document.

Steps to Reproduce:
Load the attached test document in Word and LO.

Actual Results:  
Paragraphs rendered on different pages.

Expected Results:
Paragraphs rendered on same pages.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No
