You must use the Page Styles in the LibreOffice. Because the .doc file format can not handle the Page Styles freature, the conversion (when you open a MS Office file in the LO) will lose some formatting properties.

Note: there is not (never was and never will be) 100% compatibility between the different file types.

Check the Print preview before you physically print a document. (or Export the document into PDF file format, and check it.

But in any case, reformat the pages by osage of the Page Styles before printing the document.
