Corrupt file on LibreOffice

Postby gol5 » Fri May 18, 2018 6:53 pm

Hi! I'm having the same problem as above. Specifically: I was working in LibreOffice on a .docx document even though I don't have word on my computer. This was since my friend sent the document to me in that format and I wanted to send it back in the same. I realize now that was a bad idea. I have managed to retrieve the text in the track changes but not the comments that I added. Any chance someone can help? I don't want to post it here as it is her research that is an unfinished thesis. Could I send it in a PM? I've tried converting it to a zip file and everything, it just causes open office to crach and word (on another computer) refuses to open it.

Many thanks in advance!

This is a well known problem - see [Tutorial] Format error discovered in sub-document
AOO 4.1.6, Windows 7 Home 64 bit

See the Writer Manual, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and the Writer guide.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.

OP has advised that s/he is redoing the document from what s/he could remember.
