Known Issues

  • OpenOffice 2.0.2 has a bug that means it cannot be used at all for document transformation.  There are also issues with converting certain documents to PDF in OpenOffice 2.0.1.  We therefore recommend OpenOffice 2.0.0 should be used until 2.0.3 is available (when the fix is planned).
