basic shapes (lines, arrows, rectangles, ovals) all import and export
without any problem. OpenOffice.org provides a greater degree of
control over some properties than Microsoft Office does, so sometimes
there will be changes when going from OpenOffice.org to Microsoft
Office. Examples include the size of arrow heads, and line styles.
Microsoft Office autoshapes, such as the smiley face, keep their
special characteristics, for instance the ability to adjust the
degree of the smile or frown on the smiley face.
Office provides more shadow options than OpenOffice.org, so sometimes
there will be a change in shadow appearance. Microsoft Office shadow
styles 1, 2, 4, 6, 14, 17 and 18 are supported in OpenOffice.org.
Horizontal and tapered shadows do not get imported and any 3D effect
on the bottom left is ignored.
