Please can you help?
I'm doing a distance-learning course. My tutor uses MS Office, so I needed to check that she could read my coursework and I, her comments.
So, I created a document using OO Writer, and saved in two formats (.doc and .rtf). She can read both no problem. However, I cannot see the comments that she has made within my document.
If I open the document with MS Office, I can see some of my words highlighted in red, and a text box in the right margin of the page. However, in OO Writer, I cannot see the highlighting, or the text box.
I did some googling, and found a thread on a different site about the same issue, but that said that OO v. 3.0 would fix this problem. I am using 3.2.0...
Any ideas, please? I don't want to revert to MS Windows after two very happy years of Linux use, but my studies are important!
Many thanks in advance.
Just to add, I am using:
Ubuntu 10.04.2 Lucid Lynx
OpenOffice 3.2 OOO320m12 (Build:9483)
