kword 2 can't save as .doc? [SOLVED]


i had to do some research for school and at the time of saving the file i see there is no .doc filter on "save as" option on kword
in slackware 12.2 i had kword and i remember i could save as .doc

i know it sucks i have to save as .doc but in school they only use windows....

1. Copy the content of your kword document as a temporary plain text file.

2. Install OpenOffice.

3. Run OpenOffice Writer, paste the original text, reformat as required.

4. Save as a .doc file.

Conclusion: Kword will not reliably save a .doc file. OpenOffice will reliably save a .doc file. Therefore, always use OpenOffice, and never use kword.

KWord 2.0 is not intended for general use and is a developer release. It is clearly stated in the release announcement, your distribution should not have made it default in any way. Please use KWord 1.6.* for any real work. The KWork 1.6/Abiword doc filter work fine and is reliable. KOffice 2.0 have a lot of missing feature ans is not usable at all for production work.

Here's the post from KOffice.org for reference

Targeted Audience

Our goal for now is to release a first preview of what we have accomplished. This release is mainly aimed at developers, testers and early adopters. It is not aimed at end users, and we do not recommend Linux distributions to package it as the default office suite yet.
http://www.koffice.org/2009/05/koffice-200-released/

Though Slackware-13.0 does include KOffice-2.0.2, it is still the 2.0x release series. KOffice states maybe 2.1 - perhaps 2.2 is when they will consider the application to be production ready.

You didn't state if you're using x86_64 or i486 release - here's the link for Robby's OpenOffice.org pre-built packages http://rlworkman.net/pkgs/13.0/i486/ (i486) and http://rlworkman.net/pkgs/13.0/x86_64/ (x86_64). Or http://slackbuilds.org/repository/13...penoffice.org/ if you wanted to build your own.

THANK YOU! but i think this could be considered solved, actually i uninstalled koffice 2.0.2 and installed the old 1.6.3
anyway thanks for your answers.
LINUX IS THE BEST!!!
