textmaker docx and Word for Android

Post by seasidepb » Fri May 15, 2015 1:50 am

I know, no one in their right mind would use Word on Android rather than Textmaker HD, but compatibility is important for my work, which is why I mostly work within Textmaker using docx formats. It's absolutely fine moving between the desktop SMO beta and Textmaker HD on my Nexus 7 tablet, but if I try to open the same documents in Word for Android I get a message saying the file needs to be updated to the latest format (which if you allow and save, then works fine). Doesn't matter for my work - I don't need many reasons not to use Word, but I'm a little concerned that if a client was trying to view a file from me he or she would have a problem.

Does that happen with every .docx file created in TextMaker?

Hi ... yes it does - though I'm now thinking it might be a Word for Android problem. I'll try creating a file natively in Word 2013 and see what happens, and let you know.

Best wishes
Paul

It does seem to be any docx file that's been saved from Textmaker ... I'm attaching a test file which certainly causes the problem in Word/Android.

Hello,

Thank you for the sample file. I was able to load the file with Word 2013 successfully.
I also created another file with TextMaker HD. It was loadable with Word 2013.

I'm not able to reproduce this issue. Was anybody able to reproduce this?
