Is the contents sensitive/confidential? Can you upload the file somewhere to allow for inspection?

If you can not share the file, my suggestion is to try to rename the file extension (try zip, docx or odt)

Which LibreOffice version are you using? Under which OS and version?

Question 1: Did you save the document revised in LO in WORD/DOC format, or as a LO/ODT file? 2: Is it WORD or LO that is showing illegible data? Older versions of WORD may not be able to read ODT files.
