OpenOffice - MS Word incompatibility - OO crashes when saving documents
If you use OpenOffice and share documents with MS Word users, sometimes the document crashes every time you try to save it in OpenOffice as .doc . This is an obvious incompatibility issue that can become a nightmare.
Often the comments are at fault. If your document contains comments try removing them (e.g. insert them into thebody of the document and highlight them) and try to save again.
This incompatibility issue has been observed with OpenOffice 3.1 – might be solved in future versions.
