Why does OpenOffice not support the file format my application uses?


There may be several reasons, for example:

  • The file formats may not be open and available.
  • There may not be enough developers available to do the work (either paid or volunteer).
  • There may not be enough interest in it.
  • There may be reasonable, available workarounds.

You can go to the User Forum or OpenOffice.org Support to discuss more details and find some help.
