2017-04-15 14:09:13 +0200 commented question When will the program-code of Libre Office allow preview of ODT-1.2-files in Windows (File-)Explorer Preview Pane without having (newest) MS Word installed?

Okay, so all that is actually missing, would be a LO- or AOO- standalone preview-handler for ODF-1.0/1.1 and 1.2-files?

PS: Perhaps the correct word above instead of "command-speech" would be "machine-speech", what I saw from ODT-1.2-files in WExplorer Preview Pane having in the Windows-registry implemented TXT-file-preview-handler from MS Windows for ODT-files.

Okay, so all that is actually missing, would be a LO- or AOO- standalone preview-handler for ODF-1.0/1.1 and 1.2-files? In the meanwhile I tried to implement the microsoft windows preview-handler for txt-files using regedit-tool (following a workaround found on the net), but that produced a preview of command-speech oft the odt-1.2-files in WExplorer Preview Pane. Thx for Your effort to help me! (I am no native english-speaker).

As I understand the discussion at AOO-bugzilla https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cg... , especially at the end (comments 16 and 17), there may be a bug in ODF-1.2 code relating to the code-created manifest.xml-files under ODF 1.2-format? The problem came into existence assumably with OpenOffice 3.4, see also https://forum.openoffice.org/en/forum...

PS: Before I installed MS Office 2007 in March 2017, my MS Office 365 2013/2016 had been terminated about one year ago. Directly before installing MS Office 2007 my Windows Explorer Preview Pane had already full function for ODF 1.0/1.1-formatted (means: old) ODT-files, but not ODT 1.2-files.

matted files, which came into existence since about End of 2012. But that did not help. Before andafter having installed MS Office 2007, I could and can preview and navigate through ODT Documents in ODF-1.0/1.1 format (but not in 1.2-format).

Hello Mike, thanks for Your link (with Your suggestion to use another program than windows explorer, namely opus directory, I guess? ). In my system MS Office doesn´t need to be installed to have preview pane working for ODF-1.0/1.1-format. I had - before upgrading to win 10 - a Win7-system with Office 365 2013 and then 2016, whereas Office 365 is terminated meanwhile. In fact I installed MS Office 2007 in March 2017 only for the purpose to get WinExplorer preview of my numerous ODT 1.2 -for-

I could and can preview and navigate through Open Documents in ODF/ODT-format 1.0/1.1 with Windows (File) Explorer in its "Preview Pane" also without any Microsoft Office beeing installed. I think Libre Office- and AOO-communtity should solve that issue without forcing users to install newest MS Office or forcing them not to use Windows. I guess its just a small code-bug.

I have to correct one of my sentences above (in my first comment today): I used "Open Office" until 2012, if also I already (can have) used "Apache" Open Office before the end of 2012, I am not sure.

As every ODT/ODF-1.0/1.1-file can be previewed and navigated through by Windows (File) Explorer Preview Pane, it depends upon the startdate of first Libre Office Version or more exactly, upon if the first LO-version formatted Open Docs in ODF-1.0/1.1-format, if Libre Office once also had that functionality. I think Libre Office- and AOO-communtity should solve that issue without forcing users to install newest MS Office or forcing them not to use Windows. I guess its just a small code-bug.

@Mike Kaganski: Hello Mike, both of Your statements are not correct unfortunately: First is Windows Preview Pane capable to give a preview and navigation for ODF/ODT 1.0/1.1-files WITHOUT any MS Office installed, as I can assure You, cause I hadn´t it installed, whwn preview even under Win10 worked for my older odt-files, which were created with older AOO-versions until 2012 (in ODF-1.0/1.1-format) and secondly therefore at least Open Office had this functionality with WExpl.

That means that I do speak of exactly the same lack of functionality as discussed in the linked AOO-bugzilla-item. LO and AOO do here have or produce the identical problem with ODF-1.2-files (but no problem with ODF-1.0/1.1-files) for Windows (OS) Explorer Preview Pane.

And secondly do I not speak about Internet Explorer or any web-brower-extension or web-browser function, but only of the Preview Pane of regular Windows (File-) Explorer, so of Preview Pane as part of the regular Windows OS, which is part of it at least since Windows NT, if I remember correctly, so the described lack of previeability and "navigability" of ODF-1.2-files exists for all Windows OS-Versions, while all ODF-1.0/1.1-files will be previewable and navigatable in Preview Pane of WExplorer

Hello Mike, firstly I do not mean thumbnail-preview of first page but the file-preview-function in (File-)Explorer Preview Pane, which has - if it works - the capability of navigating through the whole document-text of a previewable file. And this preview and navigation works for ODT-file with ODF1,0/1.1-Version, but not any more with ODF-1.2-formatted files/documents. You can control the also with LO given capability of preview and navigation by storing ODT-files with LO in the 1.0/1.1-format.

2017-03-13 18:22:07 +0200 asked a question When will the program-code of Libre Office allow preview of ODT-1.2-files in Windows (File-)Explorer Preview Pane without having (newest) MS Word installed?

My System is Windows 10, beneath Apache Open Office (4.1.3) and since few days Libre Office 5.0.3 is MS Word 2007 installed. I cannot see previews of my ODF/ODT-1.2-files in Windows (File-)Explorers Preview Pane, what I find quite annoying. I am coming from Apache OpenOffice and have now Libre Office installed because it delivers an additonal trick to it, since the files can be stored as "Microsoft Word 2007-2013 Open Document"- format, what isn´t possible with Apache Open Office. But that also is no sufficient solution. The problem is, that only ODF 1.0/1.1 -files are previewable with Windows Explorer, if You do not have the newest MS Office or MS Word installed, which since Office 2013 or 2016 is capable of handling ODF 1.2-files:

After - without success in form of previewability - having tried some manipulations in the Apache Open Office manifest.xml - files, which are found with windows explorer-search, it seems to me the manifest.xml-file of every single odt-Dokument (which is a zipped xml) in ODF 1.2-format is the problem based on the program-codes of Apache OO and Libre Office.

Momentary the only semi-"solution" for previewability without newest MS Office installed seems to be, to store the files in ODF 1.0 or 1.1 -format or - in my case (having ms word 2007 installed) - to store them (beneath odt-1.2-format additionally) in "Microsoft Word 2007-2013 Open Document"- format with Libre Office. ODF-1.0/1.1-files and (in my case) "Microsoft Word 2007-2013 Open Document"-files are previewable then. But the problem with this is, that I would have to treat each of my about 2000 ODT-1.2-files (produced since 2013) this way, what isn´t possible and that - if doing so with a smaller number of my latest ODT-1.2-files say of the last month, it would change the "last change"-time-attribute of those files, which I need to stay in original forms and row in Windows Explorer for my orientation and my work-process, cause I have to be able to see, when and how I changed the content of those text-files.

Before finding that not really satisfying semi-"solution", I found a profound discussion of the whole problem here: https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cg...
