When I use OpenOffice Writer (ver. 2.3) and save my files in ".doc" so that my clients can open them in their Microcsoft Word programme, I am having trouble with the colour highlights. To edit text, I use the colour highlight function for text that my clients need to review or change. Unfortunately, my clients are unable to remove the colour highlights on their computer when using Microsoft Word. I am not talking about the colour of the text here; I am talking about blocking text and adding some colour over it so that it stands out on the screen.
I would like to know if this is an OpenOffice Writer incompatibility with Microsoft Word that is not fixable, of if I can change some setting on my OpenOffice Writer so that my clients can change the colour highlights with their Word programme. I would really like to fix this so that I can dump my computer with Word on it and work totally on this computer using only OpenOffice Writer.
I can, of course, change the colour highlights in Writer when I re-open a previously saved ".doc" file to make my changes.
I am using Mint 4 Daryna, Gnome desktop, OpenOffice ver. 2.3, saving as Word files. Clients use Word 2003 for the most part.
Any suggestions will be most appreciated.
