Adobe PageMaker

I saw Adobe PageMaker getting added as a new import filter in 4.4. Shouldn't this one be replaced from suggested to existing libs? --Kerwyn (talk) 2014-10-07T17:47:01 (UTC)

Lotus WordPro

What about Lotus WordPro files? LibreOffice should be able to handle these as well? See this question on ask.libreoffice. --Kerwyn (talk) 2014-11-20T19:19:18 (UTC)

wordstar

Wordstar files might be a good addition as well!. See this ask LibreOffice page.--Kerwyn (talk) 2015-01-22T17:15:07 (UTC)

Psion

If you are ever looking for useful file formats to read from, may I suggest files generated on Psion Organisers? There are files of the following types:

- Word processing
- Spreadsheet
- Database
- Calendar

It is possible to run an official Psion emulator on Wine, which generates files in the offical formats. Many users have files on Compact Flash cards that would benefit from being made more accessible and/or converted into an Open Standard Format.

There is further information available here, including the file formats: http://frodo.looijaard.name/project/psifiles

It would be very helpful to convert from the Psion Database format to an Open Standard - the Psion format is not just used for Contacts, but is flexible general multi-field database

Hi Opestawon, Make sure to also file abug report for this. I'm afraid that your comment here will get lost. --Kerwyn (talk) 2016-06-17T16:44:02 (UTC)
