I am writing an AsciiDoc backend to produce ODF files directly from 
AsciiDoc. I was also looking for a flat file importer. Currently 
LibreOffice and OpenOffice want to open such a .fodt (or .xml) file as 
text rather than an pure ODF file.

I suspect it's a Windows version issue. I can easily open .fodt, .fods
in linux LO 3.3.4 & 3.4.3. Windows versions act (using the same test
files) do as you suggest and only open as text.

Perhaps it's related to this bug report:
[fods file from recent documents opened like xml text file and not as
libreoffice spreadsheet]
You might want to join that bug report and add your test comments.
Get's weirder... same .fods test file on Windows with 3.4.3 (after
uninstalling LO 3.3.4 + user profile) opens LibreOffice Math. .fodt
still opens as text.

Now opens as a regular Calc file *after* installing the Sample XSLT
filters (as e-letter pointed out at the begining of this thread). And
the .fodt file opens properly as well.

I'll uninstall 3.4.3 (including user profile) and reinstall 3.3.4 to see
if it does the same there to check to see if it was a profile issue).
First test will be with standard install (no Sample XSLT filters), and
then with the Sample XSLT filters installed.

Note: sorry for the almost blog... just trying to see if there is a
difference between 3.3.4 and 3.4.3 - w/wo filters.

OK. LO 3.3.4 (Windows) installed w/o any 'Sample XSLT' filters (same
test files as before):

- .fods & .fodt only open as text files.

Add the 'Sample XSLT' filters (setup.exe|Modify|Optional Components|XSLT
Sample Filters|

- .fods & .fodt open properly as ODF files

So it appears that this wasn't an LO package issue & perhaps was/is a LO
profile issue. I'll add my notes/tests to the
bug report.

Apologies for the noise & we now return you to one of the original
questions in this thread asked by e-letter: "Is there a logical reason
why xslt filters need to be selected manually for installation?"

IMO: good question & hopefully e-letter will file a bug report regarding
