Hi All,

   I'm preparing a demo for a potential client in Switzerland and one of their requirements is the integration between Alfresco and OpenOffice. I've posted the following message in the Usability area but I have on answer. Maybe I should post it here as well, inasmuch as, in my point of view, it's a very desirable feature.



Hi Guys,

I'm trying to convert Open Office files (.sxw) to PDF and it's not working. 
Going deep into the java classes I've discovered a workaround to this situation:
When I import a new .sxw document I tell to Alfresco that this file is "Plain Text" document instead of "OpenOffice 1.0/StarOffice 6.0 Writer 6.0". This is the only way to convert it into PDF when I invoke the transformation engine via "New Action", afterwards.
Meanwhile, I would like to have it out-of-the-box. Could somebody help me?
I'm using the code provided to download at 2006-01-18 and I have the OpenOffice 1.1.4 working properly in a Linux box.
Thanks in advance.

Best Regards,

Eduardo Linhalis.
