           Summary: Change tracking loses data
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: LibO 3.4.3 release
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: medium
         Component: Writer
        AssignedTo: libreoffice-bugs at lists.freedesktop.org
        ReportedBy: jkonecny at rmtohio.com

Let me first state that I know the bug tracker is not a place to get emotional
over a problem but this has caused me loads of undue grief.  Our CEO was
working with the corporate owners and lawyers over a building aquisition and
they were sending a .doc back and forth.  They were all using msword except our
CEO (and whole division) who uses libreoffice at my urging.  They got quite
agitated at our CEO who seems to not ever have the correct data in his doc and
then narrowed the problem down to his use of Libreoffice.  Needless to say I
was forced to buy him a copy of msoffice so the docs could be edited
successfully and I suspect the change will force everyone to change against my
will.  Ok...  emotions off. 

I will attach two screen shots which clearly show data is missing and garbled
in the .doc as displayed in libreoffice and then correctly with "ms word
viewer" (which is all I have).  There are errors in the change tracking
throughout the document and the screen shots are only a sample.  I would be
happy to send the entire document but it is confidential and I do not want to
post it publicly.  If there is a way that I can send this doc to the developers
who will keep it confidential please let me know.  I have set the severity to
major although it probably should be a blocker since it causes data loss and/or

As for the screen shot attachments...

Notice that the msword viewer shows that section e) has been entirely deleted
yet portions of it show up in Libreoffice.  As I said before there is much more
wrong with it however.
