Hi :)
True but that doesn't help in the real world.

Is there any problem with just keeping the original in odt format and then do "Save As ..." to 
create a "doc" to share with other people?

Dne 7.5.2012 6:04, Marc Paré napsal(a):
A couple of users who are using LibreOffice professionally are wondering if it was possible to 
email their .odt files through the "File->Send->Email as Microsoft Word" not only one at a time? 
There are many occasions where they need to email to contacts but need to send .doc formatted 

The "File->Send->Email as Microsoft Word" allows emailing .odt files into .doc without being 
forced to save the same file into an identical .doc file.

They said that they would really like a function where the "Send->Email as Microsoft Word" that 
would allow to do this with more than only one file at a time.



Why should LibO be a clone of M$ Word?
There is no obstacle for the users to download and install LibO
as an alternative software for reading open document format
if the M$ apps are not able to show o.d.files correctly.

Jiri: Both of these people work for professional organizations where the organizations have settled 
on the .docx format as their default document format. For one of these people, installing 
LibreOffice at his university is simply not an option for now. The other person works for a large 
music organization that has also settled on MSO although she is advocating LibreOffice with some 
sort of success, but not yet endorsed by the organization.

Tom: Both of these people are already exporting their files in .doc or 
.pdf files. The problem with this is that they now have a ton of files 
that have been doubled; they are both at the admin levels of their 
organizations and have very active roles in committees.

Being able to "Send" more than one file at a time would eliminate 
completely the need to export physical files to hardrives.

I was thinking if LibreOffice were able to do this, then people would 
grow to depend on the ODF file formats more and view any other file 
format as being less important. The perception to users would be that ODF formats are the "defacto" 
format and other are really "sub-formats" to the defacto OFD formats.

Perhaps add this as a feature request?
