I've found that LibreOffice can open Word files that Word can't seem to open.
I wouldn't be without it now.

Volker, do you survive without MS word for Mac easily these days? Any time I tried to exercise my Mac of that software larger documents in word format were not happy.

That progress bar looks funny, considering that over 50% have already been copied.

@Nick:

In 1997, StarOffice 5 could open Word files shunned by MS Word.

@Joerg:

When one installs software on OS X, the progress bar and estimated completion time will exceed available patience.

I have no MS Office installation. I presently use Pages on OS X, and LibreOffice elsewhere on Linux and Windows 7 installations within VirtualBox. The time however, is not far off where I may install LibreOffice on OS X.

Paul, to your question: I still have Word installed, but I don't deal with these kind of documents. LibreOffice is only there in the unlikely event that I get a document from IBM.

All my copy writing is now done with iA Writer. It's only the first step in a process that goes through either layout to paper, or into a CMS for online publication. Everything that is not text is added later.

3.6 on Mac still crashes always when I want to use an auto filter in a spreadsheet. I think that bug now exists as long as LibreOffice exists. Does not happen on Windows.

Oliver, did you file a bug report or is it a known bug?

Hans Bornich, 2012-08-10

Yes, it's a known bug. See Bugs 47275 and 52342 which seem to be parts of Bug 47368.
