I have Abiword compiled from the editors/abiword port, with plugins from the editors/abiword-plugins to (in addition to the default) import and export ODF and SXW. Unfortunately, the importers appear to not be working properly: they reliably loose metadata such as page orientation, and randomly loose styles (only as applied to text - additional defined styles are preserved), and page breaks. Manually formatting such as newlines and bold, italic, etc. appear to be preserved. I say 'randomly' loose these things because in some documents I'll loose all of it, whereas in some only some of these things are lost (for example, one particular document looses all but the first page bread, all styles applied to the first page, remembers all other headings, and remembers all but the first application of a style I created speciifically for this document). I have tested this and get the same symtoms on an ODF that I created, and was working, using the same set of plugins a few months ago on a Linux From Scratch system, leading me to blame the importer rather than the exporter. I am, however, not currently able to test this on any other word processor to confirm this. I am running FreeBSD 6.1-BETA4 (as reported by uname), but ports appear to be coming from the directory 6-STABLE (I'm not familiar enough with the ports system to know if this is to be expected).
Has anyone experienced similar problems? Is there any know cause and workaround or solution for it? If necesary, I can provide a sample file which shows these problems. -- Lennon Victor Cook "He who receives an idea from me receives without lessening, as he who lights his candle at mine receives light without darkening" - Thomas Jefferson _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
