About that standard:

How much longer do you think that a lowest common denominator format (97) will be generally used?

Anyway, for the time being it's working, and you have your solution.

Hi Doug,

I think the best solution to your problem is to buy a copy of Microsoft Office.

I do not like Microsoft Office. I think it is a PITA, and I have thought so since I was using
WordStar!  But a standard is a standard, and whether you like it or not, the old 1997
.doc format is that standard, as nearly as there is one.  LIve with it!

Is there a way to make Libre save in MS Word 1997-2003 .doc format as

If so, how?
Using version 4.1.

Yes, click on Tools>Options>Load/Save>General and make your selection there.

Thanx for the advice, Tom, but MS 1997-2003 .doc is readable by EVERYBODY,
even people who don't have MS Office 2013.  I don't care if I ever see .odf again!
