Hi :)
Cool :) Thanks :)  So, time to post a bug-report?

The only advantage with docX is that, like Odt, you can rename the file-ending to zip and then dig 
out the pictures from the "images" folder.  It's a pain to get the images back into the right place 
but hopefully all this might get smoother in the future.  

Perhaps install 3.6.3 alongside 4.0.0 or perhaps just stick with the more stable branch for a bit 
longer and try the 4.0.x a bit later? 
Regards from
Tom :)

Hi :)
DocX is really bad for sharing with people unless you be be fairly certain
they are using the same version of MS Office on the same version of

The older MS format, Doc for 97/2000/Xp/2003 is still currently the best
format for sharing files. 

Odt is becoming more widely used but the only version of MS Office that can
really handle it is MS Office 2013.  The 2007 and 2010 attempt to implement
Odf was a bit sub-optimal.  Regards from

Both of the above LO versions have the problem. I can open a .docx

Tell the source to re-send in odt format, or use google docs to view.

I even created a new user and logged in as him, then using SUSE version
LO4.0.0.3 tried the same document with the same results. Also I just took

copy of a news letter I am getting ready to send out ( generated in .odf
format) and saved it as a .docx document. the formating was totally
and graphics were messed up also (graphics in wrong place, text in wrong
probably caused by graphics being wrong, some graphics just plain blank
Good. You should be sending the newsletter in odt format; most modern
software can view it, otherwise pdf/html should be used.
yes I am aware of compatibility problems. Typical MS. 

What I am trying to do is open the .docx document, and then save it as odt. 
This works fine is original doc is all text. But when graphics exist in 
document and get relocated, missed etc, then its hard to get a proper 
document. It seems to work better in LO 3.6.3 than in LO
