I recently upgraded my desktop to OO3 and have been using Impress for class presentations for since ver. 1. Now when I create a file using OO3 I on my desktop & then try viewing that same file with OO2 using Portable Apps all paragraph wrapping is lost and the text spreads out in one line from off the left screen to off the right screen. Unfortunately I did now know of this until using the file for a class presentation. Fortunately I had the hard copy and was able to give the students the information verbally. This was posted in OO desktop a couple of days ago but with no replies as yet. Perhaps someone here would know of something being done to correct this backward compatibility problem.
Thanks for any help.
BTW I know I can end each line with an but that is not a fix it is a bandaid.
There are significant changes between OpenOffice.org version 2 and version 3 so there should be no surprise if a OOo3 presentation doesn't display correctly in OOo2. Though strictly wouldn't this be an OpenOffice.org issue not a portableApps problem.
OpenOffice 3 uses version 1.2 of the OFD-format, while OpenOffice 2 used ODF version 1.0/1.1
But in OpenOffice 3 settings you can set OpenOffice 3 to save in the old ODF format.
Thanks guys. Just the wake up call I needed. Duh to me. Created in V3 but not viewing properly in V2. What a concept. I was locked into the opposite thinking for some reason and it took the truck hitting me to get me back on track. I was doing V3 to view in V2 while thinking V2 being viewed in V3. I'm not quite sure how I had the bits reversed in the cranial cavity that way but they should be properly polarized now.
Thanks for the wake up message.
