Description Paul F. Johnson 2010-06-08 12:48:48 UTC
Description of problem:
If I create a formula using the formula editor in OOo and export as RTF, neither Word2003, Word2007 or WordPad are able to import it. Trying to import back into OOo results in an empty box being generated.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a formula, export as RTF
2. Try and load it back into OOo or Word
Actual results:
Nothing (OOo gives an empty box)

Expected results:
Formula should appear.

Additional info:
If I go the other way around (load a formula created in Word into OOo that was saved as RTF), it works. Not tried using 3.2.1-19.9 yet.

No ole objects are exported into rtf at all. Known long-term issue. Moving upstream
