Regarding ODT, do you know which programme saved the file? In my experience only ODT files saved by LO and AOO can be imported correctly. Also, not everything in ODT is being supported, essentially only formatted text and paragraph styles.
If you want to use plain text, save the ODT file as plain text in LO.
