OOXML floating table improvements in LibreOffice Writer 4.2

Estimated read time: 1 minutes

I’m posting here a few screenshots showing improvements I’ve recently implemented in our DOCX import and export filter, done in the 4.2 development cycle. Note that final 4.2 is still far from being released, so this is not a complete list. :-) In each case I’m providing a screenshot showing how it looks now on 4.2, how it looked before and the reference layout. Click on the images to get a larger image:

  • document with paragraph shadow (test doc):

OK, this has nothing to do with floating tables. But I promise the rest is all related to that. ;-)

  • document with floating table (test doc):

  • document with floating table and special margins (test doc):

  • the same document after roundtrip (load, save and load again):

If you want to try these out yourself, get a daily build and play with it! :-) If something goes wrong, report it to us in the Bugzilla, so we can try fix it before 4.2 gets branched off. And remember, there are lots more improvements coming in LibreOffice 4.2 (even if some of them is not yet documented), stay tuned! ;-)
