This one stumped me. I'm not sure if this is a general OOo 1.0.3 problem with importing Word files, therefore probably fixed in 1.1, or whether it's the OSX port. When I import a word file with bulleted lists, some of the bulleted points (and it seems completely random which) come in deleted, but still visible through Track Changes. If I delete the Track Changes history list, they reappear in the document. Any ideas?

I think it's a generic Word import problem that is on the slate of 1.1 fixes. I recall reading in one of the feature lists that bullet importing from Word is better. While I don't know the specifics, I do know that OOo 1.0.x displays its bullets using the OpenSymbol font included with OOo. I'm not sure what Word is using offhand, but I think it's Wingdings (?) and the errors may arise from trying to match the symbols from the two fonts.
