    Buggy orange circle in when opening .docx in LibreOffice

    Hello everyone,

    Absolute beginner here but happy and determined to learn.

    Installed 13.10 from USB earlier this month and system has run fairly well except I cannot return my machine from suspend. Onto my real question.

    I have imported some of my .docx files that I had created in Win7 and when I open these files to edit them in LibreOffice there is a large, opaque Orange circle at the bottom of the first page without fail. It appears to be some sort of formatting from within LibreOffice as I can highlight it and move it. Here's the catch thoough, when I move it, it merely creates a new orange circle where I move it to (insert jokes about the Hydra here). Also, I can't manage to delete the circle.

    The documents in question are my resume and cover letter templates and as I'm in the job hunt now this is killing me with annoyance. Thanks so much, glad to be aboard. Everyone is so helpful and knowledgeable here!

    Hello and Welcome

    I don't see this and just opened some word documents moments ago. You can select the print screen key and post a screen shot here using the paper clip symbol on the reply box. With a picture someone may be able to identify the cause more quickly.

    Did you file a bug? https://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/bug/

    Last time I did (about a serious regression in calc) I got prompt attentions after the Ububtu packager for LO saw it and gave it a push, the bug was fixed the next day after he intervened. You should also provide a sample document.

    Thanks for all of the replies folks. Sorry for the slow response! I've attached a screen cap that shows what I'm referring to. I've also tried to save it straight away into .odt with no luck.

    I am equally confused ! Ive seen water marks in documents used for copy protection, but nothing like that.
