    Apps for Open Office documents

    Hi all,

    So far I've been using Polaris for editing documents that I transfer over using Microsoft office. It seems to work fine, I can open files with polaris and Microsoft office can open Polaris files on my computer. However I can't seem to open files from Open Office with Polaris.

    Can anyone suggest an alternative app for this? Or is there a more convenient workaround for this problem?

    I have not tried it myself, but check out Kingsoft Office. There is also OfficeSuite Pro 6 and QuickOffice to check out.

    Hi:

    I use Open Office as my desktop word processor but I usually save as Word 97/2000/XP .doc in Open Office before continuing work on my tablet. I've found that OfficeSuite is the best match so far for Open Office documents. I also like Kingsoft but find it has a hard time dealing with documents with margins that stray from Microsoft Office defaults. I like the default margins in Open Office, .79 rather than 1.25, and OfficeSuite seems to be the best match so far.

    I've put several template docs from Open Office on my microsd card, two columns etc., and use ES Explorer to create a shortcut to the Microsd on my home screen. I select the template and use open as to open it in OfficeSuite. Then after a quick save as, I'm on my way with a new document.
