This question already has an answer here:
I apologize for the repetitiveness of this question, but I just yesterday decided to use Ubuntu 13.04 as my only operating system and am trying to figure a few things out. No, I don't mean figuring out things with Ubuntu as I have been messing around with the system for some time on older machines and on VMs.
My question is, since the release of LibreOffice 4.03, are we still looking at any incompatibilities when read/write MS Office .docx files? The university that I attend requires us to turn in weekly projects in Word 2010 .docx format. I would love it if I could use the office suite included with Ubuntu, which just happens to be LibreOffice 4.03, but I have read numerous articles in the past that there are some incompatibilities such as tables not displaying correctly and some items getting aligned differently. These problems absolutely cannot happen on any of my projects; otherwise, my professor will dock points on each project. Can anybody confirm if these problems still exist?
I know it is quite easy to get MS Office 2010 to work through PlayOnLinux, but I want to know if LibreOffice is totally compatible with .docx, .xslx, and .pptx file formats or if I still need to save in the old Office 2003 format. Thank you for any help you guys could provide!
