I don't even really know where to begin with this.
I haven't enough information to file a bug, really, because what I
have is vague, broad.

But I have been doing business as a freelance translator for 10 years,
using only FREE/OSS, (OmegaT, OpenOffice, etc., on Debian GNU/Linux)
without any major issues.

Now, suddenly, every time a client sends me a .docx file, I get a complaint
when I return their documents that the formatting has changed (tables
are different,
fonts changed, bullets disappear, or, worse, they can't even open the document,
although it opens fine here).
I often work with customers who send me .docx files and expect me to edit the files and send them back. Being aware that LO doesn't always reproduce the original formatting when saving in .docx mode, I process the files and then re-save them as "MS Word 97/2000/XP/2003". The customer's formatting is preserved and no one has ever complained about receiving a .doc file instead of a .docx.

Using LO on Linux Mint 13 Maté.
