Just adding new odt files to my existing folders with doc files did not work well for me. When I did a "save as", LO did not display my older doc files so I could not see them. Seeing my older doc files when saving files is important for me.

So I set LO to save as doc files. This allows LO to work like my old Word 2000 when saving files. The formatting I do in my documents are very simple like using bullet numbered lists and adding a picture now and then. So I think saving as doc files will work OK for me. I'll use the save dates that are listed in Windows "detail" view to determine which doc files were saved using LO. Any file after today's date will have been created using LO.

This may be a feature that the LO programmers might want to incorporate. IOW the ability to display all files in a folder even though LO is set to save documents as odt. Then doc, docx and odt files would be visible when doing a save as.
