Description mariahelenak 2008-06-29 17:02:39 UTC
I created and worked on a document yesterday (to do with my PhD) in Writer. I 
used bullet points, headings and endnotes extensively throughout the document 
and saved it as a Word 6.0 document so I can send it to my supervisor who uses 
Word.  Today when I've accessed the document it has labelled all my headings 
with either a bullet point or a '?'. It has also reverted some endnotes to 
other numbers, which means that I have lost track of all my referencing, eg I 
don't know what statement I've got from where. This is particularly frightening 
(and now frustrating) as I can't rely on using Writer for this type of work 
anymore. I'm also highly disappointed that I can't use Reference Manager with 
Writer, although I can understand this is not a development priority.

MRU->OD: unnumbered heading paragraphs will be exported with bullets to WW6
format. See attached sample.

MRU->mariahelenak: for the remaining problem regarding the incorrect endnote
export, please file a new issue and attach a sample odt. I am not able to
replicate the problem with my test documents.
You should better use the Word 97/2000/XP/2003 format for exchanging documents.
Word 6 / 95 format is VERY old and there are many incompatibilities between
newer products and this old file format.
