Just wondering if it was possible to add the option of inline images/objects to the RTF export filter of OOo.

Yes, I confirm that the RTF export filter saves embedded images externally to the file as linked images. I've really received several mails about this problem. Davide Dozza

This problem is a major obstacle to use OOo in collaborative groups where some members use MS Office (i.e., ALL groups joining more than ONE enterprise or public body). Exchange of documents for peer revieving and writing a chapter by each needs a common format that can be written and read both by OOo AND MS word. MS Word is NOT such a format, 100% compatibility cannot be ensured by reverse engineering. RTF could be, but if this issue is not solved we can excange only documents non containing pictures. Note 1: actually, this is a MS bug too. RTF specs provides two different ways to insert pictures in an rtf doc, both inline and in a separate file. But MS Word is not capable to read pictures from another file. However, it is crazy that OOo saves rtf files with pictures just in the way that Word cannot read (while OOo CAN read files in both formats!) Note 2: this problem was issued on nov. 2001 (issue 2244) and closed "Wontfix" because "Our forces are concentrated on the more important MS file formats". It is time to reconsider it. Otherwise, we OOo advocates will never succeed in convincing other people to use it regularly and forget MS Word AND Windows. Thank you. Tommaso Russo, Trieste(it)

Please lift this issue up to a higher priority. This is important because, specially in the german speaking area of europe if usual to use rtf-files to create,edit and print serial letter- and billing-templates. I'm currently writing on a such application. The use of rtf-files makes it easy to search and replace keywords in the template to create the case specific letter or bill. And the templates and automaticly created files can be easily been saved into a BIGTEXT field of a database. THIS IS A KEY FEATURE FOR THE BUSINESS USE. PLEASE INTEGRATE THE FIX ASAP INTO THE NEXT BUILD OR RELEASE CANDIDATE.

I don't think that it makes sense to have this issue in the UX team. Reassigned to hbrikm.

not doable for 3.0, docx filter is consuming too much resources
