I know I can open
.doc files in LibreOffice, but can I save a new document as a
.doc? You used to be able to do so in OpenOffice, but I can't find anything in LibreOffice to do that.
Yes you can do this easily using Save as:
Go to File--> Save as .
And there is even support for
Make sure you select File->Save as
The more intuitive File-> Export does not provide the option to select the file type.
[I lost hours trying to find out why I could not choose the file type when trying to export...]
