Thanks for the quick reply. I probably wasn't clear enough about the goal being that any users
added to the machines (post facto) would get MS
default formats without doing (knowing how to do) anything. (I was recently excoriated by a client
who had difficulty because her customers couldn't open the .odt's LOo gave her....)
It is somewhere in the options but you must not do that. Always edit
your documents in the native ODF format (odt, ods, odp etc) in order to
get most of the software and the best conversion results.
Then you call menu:File>Send>"Document As PDF" and everybody will be
able to read an exact virtual print of your document since everybody has
some PDF reading software on any computer platform.
*If and only if* you need to co-edit some document with users of
Microsoft Office you call menu:File>Send>"Document AS MS ..." which
keeps your ODF document while attaching a MS version to an email.
Next time you get mailed the next version of some MS file open that file
and save your copy in native ODF in your own working directory.
In this scenario you have to strictly avoid the new OOXML document
formats (docx, xlsx and pptx). LibreOffice stores well formed documents
in the older doc/xls/ppt formats while these formats are fully supported
by MS office. The conversion to doc/xls/ppt works best when it is done
in one go. Working in foreign file formats (saving as doc every few
minutes) may cumulate conversion flaws.
Hope this helps.
