Hi Forum,

Appreciate your pointers or help on how to open the MS office word files in writer while retaining the format 
of original intact. Currently Libre when opening MSOffice-word2007 docs loses water mark, embedded image, 
images inserted thru "insert features of word 2007" etc

Thanks, Vasu

I generally have success accurately opening docx format files. Occasionally I get one that I have to open MSO and convert to doc (2003) or ODF 1.0/1.1. Usually it is some graphic layout that causes the problem. This is known issue with LO and AOO.

docx file conversions are occasionally difficult because MS is trying to push their proprietary MS Office and makes open the file accurately problematic.

If you are using Linux, you might try Calligra Words (probably available in your repository) to see if it is better at opening the file and saving to odt.
