Cross editing and saving on OneDrive - Office 2016 format

Post by chefboyct » Tue Nov 29, 2016 8:44 am

Hi Softmaker,

I must really comment on your hard work and making Office 2016 files open seamlessly on Linux (Zorin / Ubuntu). I am a newbie on Linux and trying to see if I can make transition from Windows 10 to Ubuntu (Zorin). I have downloaded your FREEOFFICE to test run and do some trials and also google for some info before I decide to purchase your Proper Office 2016 version or not. And I have a genuine question.

I generally receive WORD / EXCEL in MS Office 2016 format on my e-mail and I can open them with Freeoffice 2016. However When I try to save the documents... the only option I have is save under MS word 2003 format (DOC). So what I would like to know is where can I find the option says MS Office 2016 format? Or does it automatically save the (DOCX) file using MS Office 2016 format? It is important as I do not wish to have layout issues when opening the same file under Windows 10 Environment. And please find quote from your website and kindly elaborate so I can understand how your application works better-

"Open and save DOC files of Microsoft Word 6.0 to 2016 faithfully, including password-protected files
Open DOCX files from Microsoft Word 2007 to 2016 faithfully, including password-protected files"

Thanks and appreciate your feedback.

FreeOffice can open (read) *.docx files, but not save as *.docx, only as *.doc.
The full version (SoftMaker Office) can also save as *.docx.
