Using a form created in MSO in LO shows vertical alignment problems. The form uses tables, the vertical arrangement in LO is so different that the form cannot be used with LO.

In order to adjust the form to LO I had to turn off the 'snap to text grid' in Format->Paragraph. Unfortunately, this needs to be done for every line seperately, not really convenient.

What does this grid alignment mean, and why it cannot be turned off for the page or document? It says 'if enabled", but where can I disable it?

Now, with LO4.3.1.2 (430m0 Build:2) under Ubuntu 14.04, the text cannot be centered vertically in the cells. However, saving the file as doc, and opening it in LO4.2 (and MSO) under Windows XP, it surprisingly displays ok. Also, Kingsoft WPS under Linux displays that file ok. Seems to be a bug in LO4.3.1.2 ?
