Hi :)
These bug-hunting sessions can be a great fun.

It's only for a short time-period so you can find yourself
against other people who are also new to it all.  Even if you
nothing about how to do it there are experienced people
on-hand to
help.  If you don't know coding then that can even be an
because you avoid getting embroiled in 'interesting' details.

Sometimes these competitions have led to prizes, such as
things.  Bodhi Linux have such awarded a a few people netboks
as top
prizes.  The QA team here did the same around a year ago.  I
this time there isn't a prize but it's a good time to get in
practice. Good luck all!
Regards from
Tom :)

The Document Foundation (TDF) announces the schedule of the


LibreOffice 4.3 bug hunting session, which will start with
the availability of the first beta of the new major release
in calendar
week 21 (May 23 to May 25).

Participating will be easy. Details of the bug hunting
session are
TDF wiki
where there is also a growing list of LibreOffice 4.3 new
and improvements to check for bugs and regressions

To participate, it will be necessary to have a PC with
MacOS or Linux, and LibreOffice 4.3 Beta 1 (available at, plus a lot of

Filing bugs will be extremely easy, thanks to the help of
volunteers who will be around on the QA mailing list
( and IRC channel

A second LibreOffice 4.3 bug hunting session will be
organized -
the same pattern - immediately after the release of
Release Candidate 1, in mid June.

Tom thanks for the heads up. Will 4.3 be available for download
in advance of the actual Beta release date/ I have been using
the 4.2.4
on my openSUSE 13.1 for the last week. So far no issues with


least my spreadsheets). Writer still has problems with a .docx

I get each month. Does not show some of the graphics. The
version of
Word is 2010.  I can enter a bug report if necessary and attach
Writer page and one from the PDF to show what it should look

By any means, please do, that would help a lot.

LibreOffice Bugzilla but it will not accept it under 4.2.3 or

I have attached the .docx and .pdf to this email. I do not know if
attachments are allowed.

Let me know if you need anything else or if I can test something.

I do have the 4.2.4 (direct from LO site) and installed.

That's weird. There should be an entry for beta/rc. May I suggest
you wait for the bug hunting session?  Otherwise I can file the bug



Build ID: d4c441391e20647b3d2e8dde4d20aa868e77e515

TDF version on openSUSE 13.1

Build ID: d4c441391e20647b3d2e8dde4d20aa868e77e515

openSUSE version on openSUSE 13.1

Build ID: 410m0(Build:3)

Let me know where to post the bug.




Charles if you could file it I would really appreciate it. I need to 
modify the .docx version some times. If not I can wait. I tried to
post the .pdf and .docx document to pastelink, but the .docx would
not post there. Waiting to hear from them on problem. The PDF version
is posted for 6 more days at:


Note my signature change to the KDE version. LibreOffice 4.2.4 still 
opens the .docx wrong but I found if I click on the left hand blue 
column near the top, the picture frame appears and if I then click in 
the frame and select edit with external program, in my case it starts 
GIMP and the Lions logo does appear in GIMP, like the one in the pdf 
copy. This may help someone looking at the issue.

I tested your file on the 4.2.3. There's no 4.2.4 released yet, only
development versions. Now: I  do not have the same behaviour about the
Gimp opening the file, but I certainly have weird blue and yellow lines
and squares in the header and the footer. That tells me there's
something wrong. 

However, I believe that it may have to do more with our own ability to
improve the OOXML filter than an actual bug inside LibreOffice. 

Do you mind if I first bring this up to the Document Liberation team
( at the Document Foundation for guidance?
They will be able to advise on opening a bug for this or work it out in
a different way.
 What do you think?



Thanks for your help.
