Hi, I am editing files that were created in Word 2003 in Mac OS. They work fine for me but once I edit the text they cause two problems. Sometimes Mac Word hangs and won’t open the files at all. Other times they open but there are font problems. They contain TIME font, which I do not have. Time works fine unless it is italic, then the Mac users see strange non-characters. If they email the document back to me I see these too. I assume font substitution isn’t working right.
It’s imperative that I can exchange files with these people. Unless someone can tell me what the problem is and how to fix I am afraid it’s back to Word for me.
I am on Ubuntu 11.10 using Libre 3.4.4.
Thanks for your help.
