Hi,

How do I work with DOCX and XLSX files? OO does not seem to recognise them.

I am running 2.4.0

There are multiple options

* Wait for OpenOffice.org 3.0
* Use odf-converter-integrator to convert OOXML files to ODF
* Use OxygenOffice instead of OpenOffice.org (they are about 98% the same)
* Use Adobe Buzzword, Zamzar, dox2rtf as a converter
* In Windows, use the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack

Also, you may need Office 2007 fonts to render the text correctly.
