I create a document in Writer, create a table and populate it with text, then save the document. When I reopen the document, the table formatting is gone and the contents of the document is the text that was in the table. Also, sometimes the document will have strikethrough starting about half way through the text and continuing on to the end of the document. I've tried saving as odt, doc, and docx with the same results.

As a side note, it appears I can open documents that contain tables that were created on other non-LibreOffice computers and the table formatting is fine.

When I say the table formatting is gone, I am referring to the table itself (not the table contents). It's as if I converted the table to text. I have attached (2) files, saved in different formats that display the same effect. The table should have (4) columns and (5) rows.C:\fakepath\Test table.odt(/upfiles/15531743087121561.odt)
