Subject description: 'Save as rtf /doc' corruption
 

Year upon year, Abiword still has this bug. Currently V 3.1

Sometimes when you save an rtf or doc, then load it up and you get this result.
If you drag the mouse across you can actually read the text, but if you try to save the file again it is just as corrupted.

STILL !!!

I tried abiword some years back but it corrupted or simply crashed too often.

I switched over to installing/using LibreOffice; Or a gnumeric and Scribus pair for my needs.

I find ABI Word to be most useful as a batch converter from command line. I had way too many issues to regularly use it as a word processor.

One way that works is to use the Windows version of an older edition of Abiword under Wine. I've just installed Abiword 2.8.6 with Winetricks, but it also works to download an exe file of something like Abiword 2.4.5 and simply click on it with the Wine file manager to install it. You can then launch it by clicking on the Abiword.exe file, which will be in this subdirectory;

c:/Program Files/AbiSuite2/AbiWord/bin/

One drawback of doing it this way is that Abiword won't download additional dictionaries for some reason, so if you're a Brit you're stuck with American English and the spellings are often different (-ise / -ize etc.). I find this liveable with though.
