I have a text file in format .rtf with a simple table. The file appears the same in open office and word2003. But in libre office it is correct only up to the beginning of the table, later on all the text is presented in the last (very long!) column and it is unusable.
Is this a bug? Do I have some method to avoid the problem?
Thanks in advance

RTFs are not the perfect solution the open-sourcers would like to think. I edit a small newsletter, and I used to get copy from the publisher in rtf format. Frequently the copy would spill over the right-hand side of the page and be truncated. This would happen in OO, LO, often Symphony, sometimes even WordPerfect (on Windows). If WP couldn't read it, it was useless, but the diddling around to make it work was a royal PITA. (The files originated in MSWord for Mac.) Now I take the input in MSWord .doc (2003 or so edition) and Symphony reads them fine. Symphony, altho a close cousin to OO and LO, is polished and finished, and even tho it has a few glitches, I like it far better than either OO or LO, which will probably never be
polished and finished.
