So is there a simple list of SPECIFIC ways users can contribute (templates is a good example) that is easily found? I've seen some general lists of how to contribute, but I haven't searched much for more specifics. In any case it should probably be front and center on the website (again, not the develop, donate $$, etc. generic list, but more specifics).

Hi, Carl Paulsen schrieb:In practical use, I would NOT say LO (or OOo) has a "high" file compatibility with MS Office. Virtually every file I receive from MS Office users has some kind of problem (bullet lists almost NEVER convert correctly, at least from MSO to LO). I'm only an occasional Office suite user so I put up with it (plus I'm on a Mac), but I've never been able to convince others to use LO for this reason alone. And I mostly work with non-profits who, for several reasons, should be avid LO users. I also realize MSO, with it's market share, stands only to gain from keeping it's formatting a moving target. With that in mind, I justcan't imagine how a project like LO could hope to keep up and make inroads.Wish I could help with making it work better, but I know nothing about contributing to development.You do not need to be a developer to help. One idea for interoperability I heard on LibOCon, is to make templates, that can be converted nicely. So if you have access to MSO, then examine, what kind of things are dangerous for converting and what kind of things convert without problems. Make a Wiki site with your observations and create good templates based on this rationale.Kind regards Regina
