[tdf-discuss] Re: LO and WORD styles

Le 01/03/14 08:25 PM, edo1 a écrit :
This question has been touched upon for previous versions of LO but I'd like
to double check for ver. I'm using. I'm planning to do a book
layout, using styles, collaboratively with a distant colleague. The problem
is she knows little about styles, works in MS Word 2013, and usually saves
files in.docx format. (I'm urging .doc on her.) I myself am unfamiliar with
MS Word styles and don't know how compatible they are with LO styles. So,
will there be a problem of styles colliding, and what's the best way we can
avoid that? Thanks, edo1

This seems like such a large undertaking to worry about such compatibility. I wonder if it would not be better to suggest to her to try to install LibreOffice and you could then just send her the start of your book with styles included and see if she could manage with LibreOffice? At least one of you would be familiar enough of styles to make it work without having to struggle to make the styles works with MSOffice.

I really doubt that she will be lost with LibreOffice menus, she will find the menu system at least familiar enough for her to work with the software. The learning curve for LibreOffice is really not that steep to start, then she can catch-up with your mentoring of use of styles.
