Some users export the content of a project to HTML files and then import them in Word (or any other writing tool which accepts HTML). You can even export to a single HTML file. Nonetheless, some editing will be required but no markup commands will be present.

Hi Eduardo.

Do you have any plans to add a plugin to export notes to Word DOC/DOCX or OpenOffice ODT files, maybe even adding headline styles to the Word/OpenOffice files? I.e. something comparable to the OpenOffice Export plugin for Dokuwiki (http://www.dokuwiki.org/plugin:odt).

Best regards, Franz

Hi Franz

We are testing a new component that can generate RTF files from HTML files. So far it seems to work well.

Thanks for the quick response, Mauro.

RTF is not 100% what I need (as RTF does not support stylesheets) but would be a big step forward for me.
Can you already say when this feature will be integrated?

Regards, Franz

Steve, I’ve long enjoyed Manfred Kuhn’s blog. While reviewing it pursuant to your reference to his CT article (which is very good), I came across a delightful post he made about the relationship between reading and writing. If the points in that post were made more often - if indeed they are made at all - in high school classes we would have people who are better readers, writers, and thinkers.

Here’s the link: http://takingnotenow.blogspot.com/2012/02/reading-and-writing.html

Manfred begins his post with a very eloquent quote from E. H. Carr’s provocative book What Is History?

If I try here to summarize the post I will do a disservice to both E. H. and to Manfred, so instead, I hope readers here will use the above link to read the post.
