Thank you.  I am using both Windows and OpenSUSE as a OS.

change this!)
I find it best to work in ODF formats then after the final save of the ODF document use SAVE AS and save to the desired MS format. When I receive a file I open and then save to the appropriate ODF format if I plan to edit the document.

With Linux Mint I was able to directly unzip the dotx file using Ark and inspect the various XML files. I found a couple name header and footer but was stopped because I was not sure what the text layout should look like. Hopefully someone else can explain where the formating information is hidden. I could easily open the XML files once I had them, so cutting and pasting is a possibility.
