To minimize compatibility reading and editing compatibility problems between teacher and students across operating systems and word processors, TPS supports only the .doc (Word 97/2000/2003/XP) format for editable word processing files. TPS supports Libre Office
Writer as a word processor that works on Windows and Mac, and produces universally-readable and editable .doc files. To make it easier to produce .doc files in Libre Office, we recommend the following settings:
- Options --> Preferences --> Load/Save --> General --> Always save as "Microsoft Word 97/2000/2003/XP" (note this is not the "Template" or "XML" option)
- When you save a document, make sure "Automatic file name extension" is checked.
