I agree and confirm.
Comment 4 Andrea Pescetti 2020-11-15 15:21:37 UTC
Based on discussions from the dev list:

Suggested new text for the error message (target 4.2.0):

This document uses an unsupported version of the Open Document Format.
Some features may not be displayed correctly.

For the actual ODF 1.3 implementation see instead - this issue only refers to fixing the error message.
Comment 5 Matthias Seidel 2020-11-15 15:37:20 UTC
The dialog itself states "OpenOffice Update Available"

I think that should also be rephrased.

Maybe "OpenDocument Version Conflict"?

I already did the changes, see my attachment...

If everyone is OK, I will commit it to trunk and AOO42X.

Committed to trunk with

Cherry-picked for AOO42X with

This will be immediately visible in en-US builds.

Other languages will need a full translation cycle, so we should leave this issue open until the strings are translated in Pootle.

Almost 2 years later I have now cherry-picked this for AOO41X:

The change is visible in en-US and I patched the German SDF file accordingly.
For other languages, feel free to contact me.

[EN] : This document uses an unsupported version of the Open Document Format. Some features may not be displayed correctly.\n\nClick 'Update Now' to run online update and see if there is a new version of %PRODUCTNAME available.

This string is not filled in Pootle?

[FR] : Ce document utilise une version non supportée de l'ODF (Open Document Format). Certains formatages peuvent ne pas s'afficher correctement.\n\nCliquez sur 'Mettre à jour' pour vérifier si une nouvelle version de %PRODUCTNAME est disponible en ligne.
Comment 12 Matthias Seidel 2023-02-27 16:29:09 UTC
Pootle is for AOO42X only...

But don't worry, I have patched the French SDF in AOO41X for you! ;-)
