I need to edit a DOCX file that I have received, and when editing is done, I’ll need to send it to the typesetter as a DOCX file again. I do the editing in LO Writer.
The file is about 200 pages long and only has text (no images included) and lots of footnotes (usually several per page). Throughout the text, many phrases are set in italics, and these need to be kept.
Would you recommend I save the file as ODT file for editing, and before sending it save it as DOCX file again? Or would you recommend I edit the DOCX file, without first changing the format? What are the pros and cons to consider?
