I use Ubuntu at home and the office but I do have to communicate with the outside world which unfortunately uses lots of MicroSoft Office in various flavors..

I've found that I can't (currently using OpenOffice) maintain bullets or outline numbering between .odt and .doc formats which is probably no surprise to anyone. Sure would be nice if someone had a fix for this issue as I see it's not unique to me. Especially since I only use Ubuntu and especially at home since I have no access to MicroSoft Word in any flavor.

My other issue is that with the OpenOffice that came native with my Ubuntu 10.04 I can't download LibreOffice for testing without blowing my OpenOffice away. That doesn't seem like a very friendly way of doing business because what if I truly don't like LibreOffice once I get it loaded? Not saying that I won't but I've been in the computer business since 1964 and know that not is all as it seems 8-)

At this point I'm working on a project that needs to get done in a couple of days that uses outline numbering that also needs to be accessible to MicroSoft users. I'm sort of up a tree with not quite knowing what to do.

Any help appreciated.
