 Hi Derek:

  Did you first save the documents as *.odt or are you working with
*.doc directly? I think the documents have to be in *.odt to allow
full functionality of the word processor.

  No. I send home a lot of *.doc and *.xls from work and have not had
any major problems so far. Sometimes images are moved but this is
easily fixed.

Kind regards,
