Doc file corrupted using Libre Office, XFCE, Mint 14

Postby oaxacamatt on Thu Jan 31, 2013 12:25 pm

Hi all,
I have a serious problem with Libre Office (Version 3.6.2.2 (Build ID: 360m1(Build:2)) while using Mint 14 which has XFCE running as the window manager.
I am having serious trouble with Libre Office. I have been using boxes in the body of the text to separate data and graphcs, etc. I have also been using the math formula to add in statistical formula that show my work. BUT when I save the work and open the *.doc later I find the doc is corrupted and that info is lost and the math formulae are poorly sized. I can determine what is going on. I do not believe I changed the defualts on Libre Office to that extent.
Really troubling...

To avoid problems, it is best to use Libreoffice default extension (odt), not .doc, proprietary extension.

Why did you save the document into .doc instead of .odt? I think you want to open the document in MS Word as well, it seems to be the only reason behind this. The file is saved in .doc extension, so this could be a plus point here. You must be MS Office Word user since you saved the document in .doc. You must give a try to Open and Repair of MS Word. By doing this you can fix corrupted document. If this doesn't help, then you can go for a third-party recovery software. On Google you'll get a wide range of MS Word Doc recovery software, choose any reliable one and check its demo version first. I can recommend you to check the free demo version of SysInfoTools MS Word Doc Recovery software. I have used a couple of times.
Good luck.
Regards. :D
