Possibility: Open the file in Wordpad, save it as a text file.
Open the file in LO and reformat it. Another suggestion: Keep this
document as a .odt file. Make any changes that are needed. Then do a
Save As to create a file using .doc when one is needed.
I've been editing a file that is in Word .doc format using L-O 3.6 on
Xubuntu Linux, with all updates Xubuntu provides. File was created by
L-O on this system as ODF, later converted to Word format for some
sharing. Formatting is not remarkably complex; headings and bulleted
lists but no graphics or tables.
Something is screwed up; attempts to open the file give "General
input/output error". Other .doc files on the Linux machine open just
fine. This file opens fine with Wordpad on a Windows XP box (all text
visible, formatting odd); if necessary I can install MS Word there and
recover that way. Or I can recover from either .odf or .doc backups,
but I'd lose some work that way.
Is there another recovery method worth trying?
