Hi John,

If you mean something like copy & paste of text from AOO to Scribus, it won't work because you have to create a text frame first (as Scribus is a frame-based DTP program). Once a text frame exists, you can *import* an ODT *file* from AOO or open the Story Editor and paste the text into it. If you choose the latter, you will lose all of your formatting.

ODT is an open standard, so it shouldn't really matter whether you're using LibreOffice or AOO.
