Hi Carole,

I tried the following on Fedora Linux

 * open a new document
 * format page to include 2 columns
 * populate the columns
 * save as .odt
 * Close and reopen - all good
 * Save the doc as .rtf
 * Close and reopen - not so good. The 2 columns are maintained but the
   contents are in different places.

Is this what you are seeing?

FYI I removed 4.3 and installed 4.1. The problem is not apparent with the older version. I have some old versions stored away so I can drill down and find when exactly this problem occurs and report to the bugzilla (I can't see anything obvious there).

Let me know if we are on the same page.

I am using LibreOffice with Windows 7.

Until recently I have been saving my two column pages of text in rtf with no problems. I have been doing this for years with no problems. Now the program will only save this two column format as odt.

I can no longer save in rtf and retain these columns.

I am not sure when the problem started, but I think it might have been when I upgraded to v.

I am writing a book using InDesign, which will not accept odt but will accept rtf. So I have years and years of work in rtf.

Right now, I am not a happy camper because I can find no way out of this problem

Please, can someone tell me what is going on here?

Thank you.
