GUEST, Tom Bliss Tech: OpenOffice (62* d) RE: Tech: OpenOffice 27 Dec 11

Cut off my head and my neck reads 'Mac', and I only abandoned Clarisworks, (sorry, 'Appleworks') when I absolutely had to - and I still use it for some things. (Heck, I still prefer MacWritePro over all others, but it's no longer runnable, even in Rosetta).

So I'd just got used to Office when this docx nonsense started. So I began using OO to open docx files, and save them out as docs.

It's a pain. OO does not display docx amendment notes and blether correctly (something up with which we scriptwriters always have to put), and gets into a loop of compatibility warnings which are by no means easy to fathom. And sometimes they client can't open the doc I, reluctantly, send. (I'll happily actually write in anything - even Stickies - but sadly 99% of other people demand Word, so that's what has to leave this desk).

Will LO open docx nicely, and save sensibly to Word?
