Due to MSO's change of file formats, I always suggest the users of MSO use the pre-MSO2007 formats. That way everyone who needs to access those files will not have any issues. A .doc file will display correctly with MSO 2007 through 2013, but a MSO 2013 may not display correctly in MSO 2010 or 2007. With using the pre-MSO2007 formats [.doc, .xls, etc.] then a great number of the non-MS office packages will also display their documents correctly. Sure LO and AOO can read/write .docx, but with MSO's changing their format's internal workings, if their formats will not display correctly within their own line of office suites, then why use those formats.

Then there are the need to have other businesses or agencies share documents. If one agency has bought the newest MSO office packages, and another still uses the older ones, then the possibility that all parties involved can use all the documents created is rather low. Sure you could ask them to use the ODF formats, but most businesses seem not to want to change to "something new". So if you can get them to use the MSO formats that everyone can read/write without any issues, then that is the first step in the process of document compatibility with "most" office packages. Then you can start showing these businesses/agencies how well LO works and they will not have to pay MSO "blood money" the next time there is a need for more computers and more copies of an office package.

Your boss won't notice, and the conversion will be a lot better.

The cause for this is that microsoft likes to change their fileformat
on a regular base, which leads to unexpected behaviours.

Hi Developer,

             I'm mark of Philippines, and im using Libre office.

I have this document that has a textbox that I rotated to 90degrees

and everytime I save it to .Docx or .xlsx to send it to my Boss

the text box I rotated is not rotated.

I already gone to several check and found out the it will occur only every
time I convert my file to .xlsx or .docx.

Hopefully this would be fix. Thank you and more power.

Godspeed and God Bless,
