Subject openoffice support fails to render some embedded images
Date Wed, 10 Jun 2009 07:57:09 GMT

We've been successfully using forrest 0.8 for over a year now and we like
the ability to build content from openoffice .odt documents. (

We largely have this working, but we still find that it is sensitive to what
type of images are embedded in the .odt file: .png and .jpg images render
fine, but .tiff images do not.

Is this just because the file extension in the OO file is .tif rather than
.tiff, or something else?

Up until now, we have just been replacing embedded .tiff images with .png or
.jpg, but this is a pain.

Can anyone suggest how to fix this properly?
