Default File Format?

Post by herbmmm » Fri Feb 22, 2019 7:55 pm

When I go into Options/Files there is a line that says " Default File Format" with 4 choices. I'm not sure which one to choose! Will this change my Microsoft Word files that I open in FreeOffice to the extension I choose?

The default file format is the format a newly created document will be saved in when it is saved for the first time. When you open an existing document and save it again, it will keep its original format (unless you deliberately choose a different one).

Thanks for your reply! One last question. What if I change the document like correct spelling or add a new line and then save it? Is one of the formats better than the others?
