Are there any tools to convert an (.odt) document to a .org file?

Please further specify .odt, and .org files. For which application(s)? – Takkat Jun 30 '11 at 10:33
You could open an odt-document with OOffice or LibreOffice and then save it as an org-document. – AlexTheBird Jun 30 '11 at 11:01
That is cool, thanks. – OHLÁLÁ Jun 30 '11 at 11:38
@AlexTheBird, you could add your suggestion as an answer. – enzotib Jun 30 '11 at 12:06
@iUngi Did you manage to save it as an org-document with OOffice or LibreOffice? – AlexTheBird Jun 30 '11 at 16:13

Open up your file, edit it to your liking, do Save As and use a .org extension
