Moving/Transferring from MS Office Excel and Word

Post by mpbuck71@hotmail.com » Thu Feb 07, 2019 2:48 am

Hello, Is it possible to transfer or move my files & documents from Microsoft Word & Excel to my newly installed SoftMaker Office? If so. How do I do it?
Thanks

Word and Excel files can be opened seamlessly by TextMaker and PlanMaker respectively. Only macros are not supported.

Hi,
is it possible to set up the freeoffice system so that the imported excel or word file are automaticlly openable / converted to plan and text maker. otherwise i always have to open the excel and word files thru clicking the right mouse buttom then the "open using" and then choosing plan or text maker.

You mean a default file format? That only works for completely new created files but for already existing files.

During installation, you were asked if you wish to associate Microsoft Office files with SoftMaker Office (or FreeOffice, respectively). Checking this option does what you want. Re-run installation and choose it.
