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

bug 6764 is a feature request for Abiword support

i have not checked to see if there is a feature request for Kword
Comment 2 horkana 2002-08-23 21:22:53 UTC
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).
