As long as I maintain the object in an ODF format, as a document or a
template, it works as it should. It's only once LO saves it into an Office
2013 format, that it converts to an image. The Office 97 format preserves
the embedded spreadsheet(s).
I suspect this is a problem with the version of Libreoffice you are
using not supporting a certain attribute that Microsofts undocumented
XML format uses, and handles it the only way it can (converts the
embedded spreadsheet into an image).
Since you are using an old version of Libreoffice, you'll need to try
with a newer (at least 5.2.6, best would be the current 5.3.2) version.
I just did a quick test of one of our templates that has an embedded
spreadsheet, saved it as both a .doc and a .docx, and opened the result
in Word 2010. The system I tested this on had Libreoffice 5.2.5 during
The spreadsheet is NOT converted to an image, but it does auto resize
itself to a smaller size when dbl-clicked, and some of the columns
disappear (they're still there, but hidden).
I then went ahead and upgraded this system to 5.3.2 (been meaning to
anyway) and redid the test.
The result was the same for the .doc, but the .docx wouldn't open in
Word 2010 - Don't have a newer version of Word to try at the moment, so
can't say what would happen with Word 2013 or 2016.
