Wishlist 

It would be great to see the Tiki Feature to import/export to/from OpenOffice Writer (Btw, the new OOo 2.0 seems to use a new format called OASYS, a standard format that will be the same for KWrite and others...).

  • OOo to Wiki -> Could these be achieved by modifying the WordToWiki macro, or something similar? (I'm not coder, I don't know if possible...). Then the info saved as a wiki page in a normal Wiki or through TikiDav feature. Xavi
  • Wiki to OOo -> There seems to be a very nice bunch of php classes being developed (already functional, v0.3) at: http://phpdocwriter.sourceforge.net. This would be great if anybody could include them as a new feature in Tiki!
