    It can read/ import some/ all Microsoft .doc files, but the earlier ‘bug’ – not writing the edits to a .doc file … is that fixed yet?

    Too scared to try, after reading the users’ experiences with previous buggy versions of this beta-ware.

  2. K says:

    Please!
    Make Calligra able to edit .doc and .docx as and save .doc and .docx as well!

    • boemann says:

      well edit is obviously not a problem since we can load it. And as far as save goes, it’s just not on our immediate todo list. We simply don’t have the manpower. For now you will have to save to odf.

    What Redi says. Please make it compatible with LibreOffice if possible.

    • Cyrille Berger says:

      It is indeed a higher priority, and it should work for the features set supported by calligra, if you are experiencing trouble, I am suggesting to report them on http://bugs.kde.org so that they can be investigated.
