Limitations when printing with StarOffice 5.0

StarOffice is a mayor Microsoft Word competitor. It has several advantages:

Its free for private use

Its cheaper for professional use

Its available for Linux

However its capabilities of importing RTF files are somewhat limited:

StarOffice cannot import Table of contents entries, Index entries and page references

StarOffice is often unable to import an RTF-File it has created itself. Save Filesin StarOffice format once youve done changes to them!

StarOffice doesnt understand the right-justified use of bitmaps in RTF. In case of a right-justfied control string it crashes.
