MM has noted that there’s a known problem with the Import function not working consistently for all users when applied to .doc files. I’ve had this problem on a number of the recent betas, and alas, 026 didn’t fix it for me.
All my .doc files are created in OpenOffice Writer 3.3.
It may be helpful to know that I can import .doc files into 026 on my Win 7 netbook, using either the Import function or dragndrop.
I can’t import .doc files into 026 on my Vista laptop. It works fine to convert them to .rtf to import them, but I hope this is can be fixed before the software goes into full release. Otherwise, I’ve been happy with 026 and encountered no problems.
