Open LibreOffice Writer and load a file.
If it’s a .doc or .docx file, it should load the document without problems with the exception of TOC.
v5.1.4 still seems to have some problems during the import phase.
To fix it:
- right-click on TOC, and select ”Edit Index table…“.
- on the right side put a ‘ ‘ (one blank) or anything else you wish to use as a separator (‘ – ‘, …), between [E#] and [E] boxes.
- do the same fix for the remaining used TOC levels (usually 3).
- click ‘OK‘ button.
- right-click again on TOC, and select “Update Index Table…“
Open File menu and select the PDF Export item.
Tune PDF options. In order to output a reasonably small PDF file, I suggest disabling the first 3 options in General settings.
Click on the Export button, and the job is done.
