    [these are MsFt not LO documents.]
After the trouble occured, I copied TEXT ONLY into Writer, finished work
there AND THEN saved first as .odt and then as .docx (same file)

Necessity for Word format: translation agencies send me those Word file
-> expect them to be "overwritten" ->
AND expect Word files back. Which will then be sold to the clients who
ordered the translations. (translation not of file formats, but of text:
manuals, books, letters etc.)
If I start mumbling "I use only odt format ...", they will probably stop
sending me work. Then I will starve to death ...

But why don't you use MS Word then? Any old copy of Word'98 generates
perfectly valid .doc files.
