@Gina @RyuKurisu Yes, .docx is not LibreOffice's native format, so compatibility can't be guaranteed. (We can't do anything about that – it's a pseudo-standard from Microsoft, with many issues, and not recommended for long-term data storage.) When using LibreOffice, it's best to use the software's native Open Document Format – .odt – which is a fully open and standardised format.
