I have a document composed of titles and other paragraphs that I can modify and text fields that I can't change (apart from deleting the whole text).
How do I convert the whole document into a normal Word 2007 document without loosing all the text in the fields.


Thanks in advance for advice

Cut and paste as unformatted text? Sep 3, 2010

Does that work?

No this doesn't work. The whole field seems to be a single object that takes its field characteristics with it.
Incidently this was a questionnaire.

Sorry, Sep 3, 2010

I mean, can you select the text inside, not the whole field, cut and paste? I vaguely remember, I had such a document and solved the problem this way (maybe I opened the file in OOo Writer to do that, not sure).

Thanks esperantisto Sep 3, 2010

You gave me an idea-
I saved the text with "text opendocument" Now I can modify it.

So easy once you know!
