Description raindrops 2007-03-09 15:16:47 UTC
When OOo saves a document in MS Office format (e.g. Word, Powerpoint, etc), then
it issues a warning that some features will be lost. Do you want to go ahead?

But it does not tell which features are going to be lost, or how serious the
loss is. As a result, the user is forced to take a decision without knowing
which particular features are not going to be saved.

Provide a list of features that are not compatible with the saved format, so
that the user can decide whether-
(a) he should go ahead and accept the loss of that feature, or 
(b) do something else first, to preserve the formatting 
   (e.g. take a screenshot of a drawn object and insert it as an image)

Note that this list of non-compatible features will change depending upon the
current file-format and the "save as" (target) file-format.

If this is not possible, then provide a link to the help file page that
highlights the features that are dropped when a OOo file is saved in MS Office
