Does this sound like a workable approach if you were familiar with
Emacs? If you were able to identify exactly what needs to be removed
from content.xml, and sent me a fragment of a file to illustrate it, I
might be able to specify a sequence of commands that you could use.

I posted the tag, which I think is the relevant, before:
<text:p text:style-name="P2">blabla</text:p>
I assume "P2" refers to printable, suppressing output on paper.
if you have a simple command line

Could you open your content.xml with Emacs and record a macro to
find and remove the hidden text? (I'm not sure that qualifies as

Unfortunately, I am not used to emacs, although I know it is a very
powerful editor.

Yes, you are right, but it does not solve my problem. The text file
will contain the hidden formated text.

To make it very clear:
I do not care about the format information in the file.
I do not want the content (the hidden formated characters) in the file
before shipping.

Using linux, the command line program xpath might do the job. It is
capable of removing certain xml tags in a file like

<text:p text:style-name="P2">blabla</text:p>

Subject: [libreoffice-users] delete hidden formated text in odt

Dear LO users,

I would like to give away *.odt files without hidden formated text.
Do you have some advice how to remove the hidden (hard-)formatted

in a

simple way?
Is it possible by a macro?

(I am aware that you can make hidden text invisible and print the
file without
hidden text on paper. I also know how to remove properties)

Thank you in advance
