I have documents that have been edited with several word processors
MS. Word, etc.). When I edited, saved, and reopened them using
all text in those documents are always truncated, like this one: Edited.doc 

If documents' styles and formatting are set to 'Default', the text look
good. However, is there a way to so that I don't need to do this every
I open documents? There are a lot of documents like this in my PC and
very cumbersome to  set their styles manually.

LibreOffice Version: 
Operating System: Ubuntu 12.04 (64 bit).

Your Default style has a "Fixed" linespacing of 0.18cm,
switching that to "Simple" linespacing (or whatewer a bit
bigger) solves your problem.

Where does this line spacing come from? Here I attach the original document.
The first time I opened it, it looked normal. However, if it is edited,
saved, and reopened using LO, the text will be truncated. Original.doc 

I had to set the style / spacing manually so that it became normal again.

Can't reproduce this by saving, neither in LibreOffice nor 3.4.5. But when I take your Original.doc and
choose "Save as", LO offers to save it as RTF. And my
Konqueror sees it as an RTF despite the .doc extension. Does
the file originate in MS-Write or TextPad or similar?
