Hi :)
You can switch LibreOffice to use ODF 1.1 instead of the default
1.2 (Extended)
by going to;

Tools - Options - Load/Save - General

Then about halfway down (or up) is a drop-down that lets you choose;
1.2 (Extended)
Note that the "Extended" part of that 3rd option is to test-drive things
that Oasis are considering for the next version of ODF, maybe 1.3 or
something.  However it normally takes ages to define a new version of ODF
as it's decided by a committee of several hundred software companies, and
other organisations along with some fairly expert volunteers.  Nothing gets
into an ODF standard until after it has been rigorously tested out in the
wild on real-world machines.

The devs have been working on a new option for that drop-down to hopefully
wrap-up most of those options into 1 consolidated version.  I'm not sure if
that's what the 1.0/1.1 is about or if a 4th option might suddenly appear.

Anyway, going by what Owen Genat said 22hours ago it might be worth setting
this option to see if it helps import the gdocs.  I've a feeling this
setting is just about exporting/saving documents but it might help deal
with the issue Owen raised.

Tom :)

Hi :)
Is it possible to post a bug-report to Google.  It sounds like they
have really stuffed things up.  Also post the same question to their
forums as they probably have (or will have) the same question
appearing many times until they fix it.

In the meantime is it possible to download those gdocs in the older MS
formats?  Doc rather than DocX (or Odt) and Xls instead of XlsX?  Do
those work any better?  How about trying their DocX filters.  I only
mean doing 1 or 2 just to see how it goes.

Apols and regards from

Google docs dont offer the plain .doc export option.
Exporting to pdf wont help since import to LO will happen in LO Draw.
I'll try copy paste to create new odt docs and change my workflow and
report the issue after that work which must do first.

Downloading a gdoc document from google drive you will prompted to
choose a conversion.

Choosing 'open document' i get an odt but i spotted an error in
giving 'outline numbering = 10' to even  headling styled with
headline 1 and superfluous xml in links.

I tried to find a way to fix the wrong oultine numbering but noluck.

I noticed that in the converted odf file 'oultline levels' 1-6 dont
correspont to a heading style instead the relate to nothing.

By completing the missing associations in 'tools --> outline
numbering' new headings will get the proper ouline level but old
ones wont change to correct one leaving only one solution : to
delete them and write them back.

But since i have many converted docs that could be tedious.

Is there another way to correct existing headings or maybe the
converted doc is messed up and a new one from withing libreoffice
should be created, possibly by copy paste to a new empty doc?

I paste some difs among a test  odt , and the converted odt from a
test  gdoc i created

<text:p text:style-name="P1">This <text:a xlink:type="simple"
xlink:href="";>is a link
dude</text:a></text:p><text:p text:style-name="P1"/>

and the same link in the converted odt :

<text:p text:style-name="P3"><text:span
text:style-name="T3_3"><text:a xlink:type="simple"
text:style-name="T3_5"><text:a xlink:type="simple"

text:style-name="T3_7"><text:a xlink:type="simple"
text:style-name="T3_9"><text:a xlink:type="simple"

text:style-name="T3_11"><text:a xlink:type="simple"

and the heading with the wrong outline:

<text:h text:style-name="P1"
