rtf and openoffice

I'd exported a .jrprint file to a .rtf file. Now, I can see the .rtf in MS Word but I can't see it in OpenOffice.
Somebody knows why?

Thanks and sorry for my english :blush:

1 Answer:


This is because the OpenOffice does not recongnize the "Microsoft Office Word 2003 Rich Text Format (RTF) Specification" we used as reference when creating the exporter.
We relied on those specifications and used text boxes to absolute position content on the page.
OpenOffice does not seem to recognize the text boxes in RTF.
We are always open to better exporters as contributions to the project.

Thank you,
