Hi, when trying to open a docx that has a background image in LibreOffice the image is cut and don't look the same. I tried looking for more info related to this but did not find any. Is this a format interpreting incompatibility that deserve a bug or is it a misconfiguration that I can fix somehow in LibreOffice?

Yes, there are problems.

  • LibreOffice does not import the image at all. Please look, whether there exists already a bug report. If not, please write one and attach the document.
  • Word fills the background up to the edge. That is not yet possible in LibreOffice. In LibreOffice you have a margin. The bug report contains a workaround. Bug contains the enhancement request to implement this feature.
