I would definitely prefer that people do ask us so that they can get the truth of it and then maybe
test what we say to confirm it.
The other option is to ask MS why and their answer will be that they have to buy their latest
version of their MS Office and then put up with people who are "too cheap-skate" to buy the newest
one too. The other piece of advice they will give is to never use anything that is non-MS.
That whole attitude is one reason i wanted to get away from the MS world in the first place. They
have a vested interest in making people feel guilty for not buying their latest and upgrading
everything all the time at considerable expense. If all hardware and software really needs to be
upgrade every 3-4 years then how come satellites, marine bouys and other stuff that is tough to
reach can keep on working for decades.
One nice thing about LibreOffice is that you can upgrade for free, except the cost of the internet
connection. The 4.1.0 is fine on most machines. We haven't had many reports of problems with it
really but i would still tend to go with the 4.0.5 because that 3rd digit, the .5, is roughly the
equivalent of "Service Pack 5". The 4.1.0 has no service packs. The 4.1.1 has 1. So the 4.0.5 is
more stable and less likely to have unpleasant unexpected surprises.

So please give any solution for this.
There are three possible solutions:
- create good bug report (providing example file and image showing how it
should look like) and hope it will get fixed in future version
- hire someone to fix this issue, provide patched binary for you and send code
back to LibreOffice repository (so you will get it automatically on updates)
- if you are using old version (like 3.6 or earlier), try upgrading.
Especially 4.1 promises hundreds of fixes on foreign filetypes import. But I
would not dare to use 4.1 on production environment yet (I would wait until at
least 4.1.4). It is possible that 4.1 fixes your issue, but in exchange for
some minor annoyances here and there.
By the way, each time I read such questions, I wonder what is in mind of
people asking them. That there is some kind of checkbox labeled "make DOCX
files look like shit" somewhere in settings, that is turned ON by default?
