    "you can now load and save documents in .docx format (MS Word 2007+)"

    Very nice! I could do big part of my work on my Amiga.

    When I tried to install this plugin I get an 'install failed' ,message! Is there a special way to get this correctly installed?

    Edit: Can someone explain step by step how to install plug-ins as I am having problems?

    @ sicky

    There is no need to install this plugin, all plugins are included in the program binary and are activated by default. Just open the requester and choose a .docx file!

    " I never had any problems"

    In case someone is looking for problems... try AbiWord in Lubuntu. At least for me it is unusable unstable in that linux distro. And AMD3800+ starts to be too slow for normal Ubuntu.

    (in general... it seems the be standard in linux nowdays to kill any missbehaving app without any notice or info why it happened. At least lubuntu, debian and bodhi does that all the time ... I would rather see grim reaper and some info of why app needs to be killed. And resource tracking ... all mainstream OS leave something anyway running, often reboot is required anyway or to try to guess what process needs to be killed manually ...etc... it does not help that win systems still use 8+3 syntax for process names.)

    Maybe a server question rather than an application specific one:

    Is it possible to change the language ( I want to type a greek text)? By clicking the right mouse button on the page it`s possible to choose "Classical Greek", but the keymap is wrong. ISO 8859-7 would be fine I guess...

    @Cass

    I'm already working on this problem. Several people asked for polish support (ISO-8859-2) and other charsets will also be supported.

    If you like to help me to fix this bug, please send me a mail (see profile) and I will send you a test version of Leafpad.
