Description Unknown 2002-05-29 03:14:45 UTC
Hello. I just started using OpenWriter about a week ago, and I noticed something you fellows might find interesting. Before I got OpenOffice, I used either Abiword or Kword , for writing documents. Kword is pretty good, it comes with KOffice, which comes with the KDE desktop in Linux. Well ...... now , when I use OpenWriter, I can't open any of my old docs, docs I made with Abiword or Kword. I only see garbage on the screen. I have to open Kword or Abiword, then open the document, then save it in another format like RTF or Windoze. Then OpenWriter will open it. I know this isn't that important, but if you can do it, then that will make OpenWriter that much better, and acdceptable. Thanks for listening, Eddie Colon

i dont know how the open office team likes to do things but generally other projects i have seen would consider Abiword and Kword support as two very seperate feature requests and would put them in two seperate reports. bug 6764 is a feature request for Abiword support http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=6764 i have not checked to see if there is a feature request for Kword support.

why is this platform specific to PC why is this OS specific to Linux you should not request 2 clearly seperate features in one bug report the summary need to be changed to be clearer "Abiword and Kword docs" what about them? A better summary would be "Import Export filters for KWord docs" (as a request for abiword support is already covered by bug 6764)

It was just announced that all of the KOffice applications, including KWord, will be moving to the OASIS file formats (of which the current OOo format is the basis). So, soon there won't be any need for KWord filters in OOo (except for legacy documents stored in the current KWord format).

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on my owner to the owner "requirements".
