I made a 'template' in LO for an A3 leaflet with a background image
(page style) on the first page. No margins, but with boxes with text,
table and images on top of it.
The problem is the same as it always has been: a file created by
one program does not always look the same when viewed in another
program. This has been known to happen even in different versions of
Word. PDF was designed to prevent this problem, so I doubt that it is a
matter of the client "has to use ..." but rather is a good choice.
Everything works fine in LO, and also if exported as PDF.
But when saved as .doc the entire background image is gone.
Any ideas about what happens?
Can't you use background images in Word?
So far the client has to use the pdf ...
They actually have Acrobat XI (or whatever it is called, as they wasn't
sure what they had..), but they don't know how to use it.
The idea was that they should be able to reuse the front/back background
images, logo etc on all their leaflets.
Specifically, Word uses background images in different way than
LibreOffice. As a test, I opened an .odt file using Abiword which is
suppose to use ODF formats. It had some graphics that Abiword rendered
as small thumbnails. It had a numbered list that covered several
paragraphs. Abiword put them into a single paragraph while wrapping text.
Earlier this week I used Word for the first time in many years, and I must
say that I do not think it has evolved in a good way. No wonder that so
few of the .doc files I receive are using styles instead of directly
formatted text. I never was a Word fan (I loved Ami Pro before Lotus
destroyed it) , but I think it was better earlier.
