Hi @Marlo,

If you'd like to convert the files individually, you can just

  • Open the files using LibreOffice Writer
  • Navigate to File -> Save As
  • Select the desired export format (ODF Text Document (.odt)) from the drop-down menu
  • And click Save!

If you have a number of .doc files you'd like to batch-convert, you might consider a tool like unoconv or run LibreOffice in "headless" mode on the command line. Here's a question on this site with more information:

Also you have a wizard to do it in LibreOffice: Menu/File/Wizards/Document converter.
