I have documents created in Word 2010 with plain text content controls which are used as templates for letters. However when I open the documents in OpenOffice 3.3 Writer the text in these content controls is not visible.
Can anyone confirm whether or not OpenOffice 3.3 supports plain text content controls? If it doesn't is it possible that there would be a plugin which adds support?
I'm having this problem during the development of an ASP.NET application which creates documents from templates (hence the content controls) using the OpenXML SDK and then uses a third party library called ABCpdf to convert the filled in document to PDF. ABCpdf uses OpenOffice or MS Office to read the Word documents; we need to use OpenOffice on the server because no license is available for MS Office.
