Subject Merging / Importing LibreOffice settings into Apache OpenOffice
Date Sat, 12 May 2012 11:56:15 GMT
I had Oracle OpenOffice installed. I installed LibreOffice after Oracle
quit supporting OpenOffice. Now I downloaded and installed Apache
OpenOffice into the OpenOffice folder effectively upgrading OpenOffice.
However, it is using the old settings, and worse, the old template folder
and history list.

Now I would like to import or merge the LibreOffice settings etc. into
OpenOffice and make everything one again.
