AZW3 to DOCX Conversion fine except for some Graphics

I'm working with my brothers book of cartoons. The conversion of text is fine, as is the cover, but the remainder of the pages containing graphics is cut off on the right hand side.

Everything looks fine in Calibre Viewer, or various Kindle devices, but I would like to make some corrections without having to start from scratch and the DOCX conversion would allow me to add copyright information, then convert back to AZW3.

Am I doing something wrong, or does the DOCX conversion require a tweak?

I'm enclosing the conversion log and jpegs of the problem.

Thanks,

Dan

@drdancm - the calibre Book Editor can edit AZW3 files directly, might be easier to use it rather than converting to DOCX and back again. Press 'T' to edit a book.

Otherwise, have you tried tweaking the paper size in the DOCX Output settings

Increasing the page size fixed the cutoff problem and I can see all of the landscape images in full.

However when I tried editing the aZW3 file in Calibre I get no files on the left side at all. I don't know what that means other than that I cannot view any pages.

-------------------------
Edited later:

But I realized that I need to click on Files Browser, and now I can see the files and can try to edit them.

Thanks very much,

Dan
