ok. Stop there.
open a "txt" file with "ms word".Not a ".doc", "docx", "odt".
Read what it tells you. I rest the case.
There is nothing "advanced" in preserving
the editing information of one's project.
(Now, I actually had not used "ms word" since, like, 1997. But I suppose
it won't overwrite your "txt" file without telling you a thing or two about
the file format you are using. Libreoffice won't. )
BTW, did you intend this rather unconstructive message just for me, or
for the whole list?
