LibreOffice Writer can now write .dot files

Estimated read time: 1 minutes

It was pointed out that LibreOffice Writer is only able to open, not save .dot (Word binary template) files. From mso-dumper experience, I knew that the difference is quite small between .doc (which we already export) and .dot files. The feature freeze for LibreOffice 4.2 is here next week, so why not adding this feature before that deadline? You can see above the result. :-)

For the ones who love our --convert-to commandline switch, an extra fix was necessary to make --convert-to dot work as well, both commits are now in master. You can try it out yourself using a daily build or just wait for the libreoffice-4-2 branchoff and the first beta from that branch.

Happy templating! ;-)
