I have years of files in WordStar. Sometimes I need to read from the archive. Can LibreOffice do that?

Which WordStar file format do you have (.ws, .ws3, .ws4, .wsd, .wsw)? There is no WordStar import filter in LibreOffice. StarOffice (the pre-cursor to OpenOffice/LibreOffice) evidently did include a limited WordStar import filter. There are a few more details in this alternate forum thread about the WordStar format and methods for importing.

@oweng - thanks for the very interesting information on the importance of ODT format in the alternative forum
