In a previous post I talked about my field-proof-of-concept. I continued to work on the issue and I'm happy to give an update on that front.
You can download a preview version of my work here:
(Linux only. Just untar the archive
tar xzf oodemo.tgzand then
cd oodemo/programand start
./soffice). This is a preview version. Do not use it for productive work! The preview demo shows
- the core enhancements (tabbing!), and
- .DOC import.
The work for .DOC export, ODF import/export is not done and not included in the demo.
For testing you can download the sample file formc1new.doc which is taken from issue 79720. It should look like this:
Again --- this is work in progress. So do not expect everything to work. However if you have issues please let me know. And remember “saving does not work yet :-)”.
I really hope I get some feedback,
I will make the patch available ASAP. It is the result of some weekend hacking --- it really needs some polishing first.
