I recently wrote a paper for class on my macbook and saved it as an RTF so I could open it on a PC. I forgot to save it as an ODT first and now canʻt open it on a mac or pc. Is there a way to recover the document? My paper is due tomorrow and I canʻt even open it.

Thank you both, I did use LibreOffice. I created the document on my Macbook and only saved it as an rtf. When I tried to open it later on my Macbook and also on a PC, I couldn't. I tried to open it using LibreOffice, MS Word, text edit, Adobe, and Pages. Nothing worked. I was hoping maybe LibreOffice auto saves files under temporary documents but I couldn't find anything. I ended up re-writing the entire paper :-(

I assume you wrote the rtf-file on your Mac using LibO.
Beside opening and RTF file as described above, I don't understand that you can't open an RFT file with Writer.
I just made a test with writer. - Created a new files. - Added test in various formats. - Saved as rtf-file. - Double-click icon. - File opened all formats remained.
I am using 3.5.7 on PC

An RTF is a plain text document with codes. You should be able to open it with a simple text editor. Have you tried opening it with Wordpad under Windows?
