My guess is that Doc works fine and it's only DocX that gets messed up.
Keep originals in Odt and edit the Odts. As you already do.
Only convert to the Doc, the older MS format (2003, Xp, and earlier) . Avoid the recent DocX from
2007, 2010, 2013 and so on. Pdf is also useful so that people get to see the document exactly the
way it appears on your machine (assuming they have the right fonts)

Subject: [libreoffice-users] converting .odt to .doc
When I convert .odt documents to .doc or .docx the original formatting gets
messed up with, in .doc, half the footnotes lost sometimes. How can I
prevent this from happening? I use Ubuntu 12.04 and LibreOffice 18.104.22.168.
