Description capstone737 2004-01-21 04:21:16 UTC
We have both MSO97 and OOo installed on each of our PCs, as we are beginning the
transition to OOo. OOo is set as the default application for opening MSO format
documents, it opens everything that we have produced by MSO, except that MSO
remains the default application for RTF files. I have to go to each individual
PC and change the default RTF word processor to OOo.

It would be much better if OOo would adopt this position - as the default word
processor for RTF files - as part of the installation process.

In windows it is possible to choose a application for extensions. In OOo you can
choose the RTF as default save format under Tools - Options - Load/Save - General

But you mean the installation part.
