Support ODF (ods, odp) in PlanMaker, Presentations

Post by shanishki » Sun Jul 12, 2015 6:00 pm

ODF is quite popular due to the free OpenOffice / LibreOffice. Microsoft Office support, since 2009 year, all formats ODF (odt, ods, odp) with Service Pack 2 for the MSO2007.The lack of ODF support in PlanMaker, Presentations if there are files ods, odp creates inconveniences when transition to SoftMaker Office. Will support ODF in PlanMaker, Presentations? If yes then what year 2016? 2017? 2018? I hope not through 5-8 years.

The support of the .ods and .odp format is on the agenda for the future but there is no release date available yet.

Although I really like SoftMaker, I can not convince others who are now using Open Office to change because of the lack of being able to open ods, odp documents. Seems like a curious decision that SoftMaker has made to not be compatible with that universal format. I was thinking of upgrading to 2018 but why bother?
