Writer Version: DEV300m106 (Build:9582)

I evaluated this bug on Windows 7 in Writer DEV300m106 (Build:9582).  This is a
newer version than where this bug was initially reported.  I created two
documents in MS Word 2002 SP3, and three documents in MS Word 2010 
(14.0.6106.5005) to use for evaluating this bug.

In this evaluation, the footnotes import into Writer with a formatting issue.


MS Word 2002 SP3 Documents
When Writer opens FootnoteAtPageBottomTest.doc, the footnotes are placed at the
bottom of the page.  This is expected.

When Writer opens FootnoteBelowTextText.doc, the footnotes are placed at the
bottom of the page.  In MS Word 2002 SP3, these footnotes are placed below the
text by selecting this as the location in the Footnotes and Endnotes dialog.



MS Word 2010 Documents
When Writer opens FootnotesAtBottomOfPage.docx, the footnotes are placed at the
bottom of the page.  The first footnote appears vertically aligned at the top;
the second footnote appears vertically aligned at the center.

When Writer opens FootnotesAfterText.docx, the footnotes are placed at the top
of the succeeding page.  Note that the footnotes were created in MS Word 2010
as endnotes and placed at the end of the section text.  The format of both 
footnotes in Writer is the same as described for FootnotesAtBottomOfPage.docx.

When Writer opens FootnotesAtBothPlaces.docx, the placement is consistent with
the previous descriptions.  The first footnote appears at the bottom of the
page, and the second footnote (created as an endnote in MS Word) appears at the 
top of the succeeding page.



Using Writer
I experimented with footnotes and endnotes in Writer.  I added two footnotes
and they appeared at the bottom of the page without vertical alignment issues. 
I added an endnote and it was added to the succeeding page.  If the definition
of an endnote in Writer is to place endnotes at the end of the document, then
the import of FootnotesAfterText.docx may not interpret how Word describes the
location of endnotes in its documents.



User Impact
The primary user impact is the endnote.  If an author of a MS Word document
intends to place endnotes in a section of text and Writer imports those
endnotes to the end of the document, some context or reference in the document
is lost or confusing for the Writer user.
