https://bbs.archlinux.org – In the past I preferred Abiword to Libre Office because it was simpler.  However, the currentversion (2.8.6-7) scrunches text together vertically, making it unusable.  Hints from previousForum posts suggests that installing Microsoft fonts from the AUR solves the problem.However, this seems like skating on thin ice to me, so I decided to move to Libre Office.The question is how to convert legacy Abiword files to Libre Office.  Libre Office itselfdoes not do a good job, as it maintains the scrunched text.  The solution (for others facingthis problem) is to start Abiword on t (HowTos)
