With apologies, but can we get back to finding a solution to this problem rather than slagging
each other (and AOO) off.

I have used this suite since version 2 on OS X, Linux and Both 32 and 64-bit versions of Windows.
I have only ever suffered minor glitches with formatting and some eccentricities with the
spell-checker: both of them known and cured at the next minor version update.

This is unusual and sounds very much as if a file format was wrongly applied at the last save.
Can we all concentrate on getting these two problems solved: finding some way of recovering
the document and tracing down the glitch that caused this.
