I have a table which is bold in column 1 and normal in column2. When I convert to text everything becomes bold.

Is there a solution to this? Word gets it OK but open office doesn't

I presume you are doing Table > Convert > Table to Text where I get the same result.

This is a workaround. At the bottom of the screen where the page number shows up you should see STD. Click this until it become BLK for block. Then select column 2 and click the B to turn off bold.

Yes this does work. But I have to click on B first to make column 2 bold. Then click on the B again to make column 2 back to normal. Then convert.

Also seems as if once you have done this to a table it always works that way (if you convert back and do the conversion again). Very curious. But thank you very much for this work around. I am curious about what these things at the bottom of the page do if you have time to chat. But the main message is thanks!
