I see continual questions such as "Will LO import ClarisWorks files?". Import + export are done via Filters, and there are reported to be hundreds of them available. However, nowhere within the documentation has anybody thought to say what these filters are, nor which files they refer to, nor what programs they support. That makes life damn difficult for humble LO supporters trying to answer questions.

So, what filters are available for Impress files?
