exporting to MS word format

Post by ds1 » Sun Oct 02, 2016 12:46 am

Being able to export to a MS Word .docx file is a great feature, but unfortunately when OpenOffice or LibreOffice are used to open the files, none of the text appears in the displayed document; only a blank document is shown. MS Word can open and display all of the text, and then if the file is edited and again saved by MS Word, it can then be viewed properly by OpenOffice and LibreOffice. Evidently PDF Xchange is not saving the files in quite the same way that MS Word saves a .docx file.

Hi,

Thanks for the report - can you please post a small sample file (zipped) ?

Thanks
