Description gleppert 2011-05-01 02:16:45 UTC
This is a very easy hack, but this "bug" confuses really many people.
People miss the option in LibreOffice to save files as "Word 2003", "Powerpoint 2003" or "Excel 2003". This is indeed missing from the export filters:

Please change following strings in "Save As" - "File Formats":
"Microsoft Word 2003/XP/2000/97" instead of the old "Microsoft Word 97/2000/XP"
"Microsoft Excel 2003/XP/2000/97" instead of the old "Microsoft Excel 97/2000/XP"
"Microsoft Powerpoint 2003/XP/2000/97" instead of the old "Microsoft Powerpoint 97/2000/XP"

Of course, the same is relevant for the related template file formats: .dot, .pot, .xlt

It was fixed in master, it means LibreOffice 3.5. It came too late for LibreOffice 3.4. LibreOffice 3.4 is frozen, no string changes are allowed.

Hi Timar, sorry for that! I could have thought a bit more that changes made to the master beginning of May can not be reflected in the version coming out end of May. I apologize for that. Thank you!
