Hello. I've been exclusively a Linux user for more than 10 years. Unfortunately practically
all of the undergraduates I teach are still windoze droids, so I have to grade their papers in
.docx format now, and I don't have a windoze machine to do it on.
The problem is that somehow Bill has found a way to make .docx files containing graphs impossible
for LibreOffice, OpenOffice, or odfconverter to handle. See attached example. The original
version of this file (before I redacted the names and saved it from libreoffice) definitely
contains embedded graphs probably imported from EXCEL. But nothing at all shows up in libreoffice
3.3.2 after the student's headings "Part A: Graph " and so forth. Openoffice 3.1 and
odfconverter give the same result.
Is there any insight out there? Conversion from .doc format works better, but as true windoze
droids these students can barely cope with instructions like "save your file in .doc format
before turning it in".
I would ask them to export their work to the PDF format, unless you need to edit them. There is a
Linux version of Adobe Reader, if Evince won't open the documents.
