The document below shows text perfectly in MS Office in Windows. But when I download it in Ubuntu, it has overlapping text. Why so?

One of the possible reasons for this is : Unsupported fonts.

Step 1 : From Windows, copy this folder : C:\Windows\Fonts.

Step 2 : Create a new folder in /home directory with the name .fonts (dont forget the dot ".").

Step 3 : Copy the content inside Fonts of Windows to .fonts and also to /use/share/fonts (if you want to use them system wide).

Step 4 : Rebuild your font-cache with fc-cache -f -v or reboot.

Workaround : If you are not comfortable with LibreOffice, you can install MS Office using Wine (which is not a good idea).
