I'm new to the list and Abiword.

I have been using OpenOffice since version 1.1.something and have now
reached a stage in my life when I don't need a full suite anymore so I
have "downsized" to Abiword. It looks like it will suit me very well.

As you might expect I have a large number of OOo files (mainly text
files). I have downloaded all the plugins but the conversion still
seems patchy. Many convert perfectly, but a lot don't; I just get two
or three lines of garbage characters.

I can't see any pattern - it doesn't seem to matter which version of
OOo they were saved under, for instance - does anyone have any idea
why this might be? And is there a fix? I can re-install OOo and batch
covert to .rtf, but I would prefer not to do that.
