I don't even really know where to begin with this.
I haven't enough information to file a bug, really, because what I
have is vague, broad.
But I have been doing business as a freelance translator for 10 years,
using only FREE/OSS, (OmegaT, OpenOffice, etc., on Debian GNU/Linux)
without any major issues.
Now, suddenly, every time a client sends me a .docx file, I get a complaint
when I return their documents that the formatting has changed (tables
fonts changed, bullets disappear, or, worse, they can't even open the document,
although it opens fine here).
It's ruining my business.
I'm losing clients, losing money, and I have a family to feed.
And I don't know what to do about it.
OpenOffice won't write to .docx, and LibreOffice messes them up.
I don't know what to do to diagnose these issues, which is why
I feel I haven't sufficient information to file a bug.
I know nothing of Java (LO is primarily java, yes?),
so I certainly can't contribute to any solution.
I'm very frustrated and concerned.
I absolutely will not use proprietary software, but I am unable to serve
my clients' needs with FLOSS at this time.
I'm at a loss for what to do here.
I suppose this is venting more than anything else, and a desperate
plea for help here.
For what it's worth, I'm using the LO 188.8.131.52 in the Debian Wheezy repos,
on AMD64 architecture.
