Description scotty 2005-11-01 23:41:51 UTC
The new "nested table" feature in 2 does not convert to Microsoft
Word format. Tested on MS Office 2003.

1. New document in OO.o Writer
2. Create two tables 2x2 tables, one nested inside another
3. Save as Word format
4. Open the saved file in Word. Inner table stays, but each cell in outter table
gets converted to paragraphs. See attached documents for details.

Note -- sometimes it is the other way around. Outter table stays, but inner
table disappears.

Also, if nested table is created in MS Office 2003, and the .doc is imported
into 2, inner table will be wrapped around a frame object. For
example, instead of


You get something like


Which is not what I expect...
