Is it possible it is an old document from an earlier version of LO.
A while back the way LO anchored images (and frames) was changed, images in tables were particularly affected throwing out text positioning also and I had to go through all my manuals and change my image anchoring to "as character".

I have been sent a graphic heavy document in ODT format. However it looks as if it has been badly 
converted from a pdf file. The layout is scrambled, headers don’t align properly and there are a 
host of other issues. It is also in columns. Is there a simple way to strip out everything bar the 
words? I have tried saving it as a txt file, but this loses a lot of the paragraph numbering and 
introduces other layout issues. Saving in rtf format is even worse.

The best I have managed so far has been by converting all the text to a single style and removing 
the columns. All the graphics however overlap text and it is often very difficult to find the 
anchor point.
