Description Nrbrtx 2013-05-11 19:48:08 UTC
Description of problem:
   Broken interoperability between LibreOffice writer and Microsoft Office Word.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
   Version 3.6.6.2 (Build ID: 3.6.6.2-5.fc18) and above (latest tested is 4.0.3.3).



Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a DOC/DOCX document with some text and mark in LibreOffice Writer. 
2. Use highlighting yellow marker from toolbar to mark some words. 
3. Save document.
4. Open document in MS Word 2003+ and try to change higlight color from yellow to white. 
5. Yellow highlighting is still present. There is only one way to remove it - change/remove its style from Styles and formatting sidebar.

  
Expected results:
   Highligting must be changed as it done in MS Office - via Highligting button, not from Styles.


Additional info:
   This bug has 9 years history.
