Subject Re: Propose to support import Shape in VML format from MS OOXML file
Date Thu, 30 Aug 2012 02:25:26 GMT
I think Aoo should focus on one filter. In the conversion mode, if export a
file to MS 2007 file ,
because the drawingML is the future in OOXML,such
converter(VML-->drawingML) will be more effective.
