Dear all,

I' using LibreOffice 3.4.4 on Ubuntu 11.10 and Writer crashes whenever I
to save a document in docx format. First of all I'd like to know how to
access error logs or messages so that I can provide some more feedback on
the issue.

Please stop using LO to create m$ documents; either pay for m$
software or help to promote use of odf.

If you are using Linux MSO is NOT an option because there is no Linux
version of MSO.

Stop assuming that someone has access to Windows or can afford to buy a
retail copy of MSO. Many LO users have limited finances and can not
afford to buy new software and possibly the hardware to run it.

MS is adding full ODF support in the next version of MSO but for now one
often must deal with MSO formats because others will not use anything
else. Many organizations, companies, and government agencies in the US
only support MSO formats because that is the default format of their
applications. Thus, US users must have MSO format support or LO is not a
viable option.

Until the US government switches from MSO to ODF formats being able to
open, edit, and save MSO formats will be a requirement in the US for any
office suite: FOSS or commercial. LO and AOO are viable options because
they do all three reasonably well while Calligra is not because you can
not save to MSO formats. I do not know about ODF support worldwide; I
can only comment on what I see in the US.

Deal with reality and shut up about using MSO formats.
