Hi there,


I'm using TE to enter basic copy and have included some tables to summarise some points.  After I saved and quit the document, I opened it back up to discover that the tables had disappeared.  Is there any reason for this? 


Thanks so much.

    I made a simple table in TE and saved the document as a Rich Text Document. I also saved this document in the following file types, with the content table format results when reopened in TE.


    Rich Text Format (.rtf): Preserved

    Word 2007 (.docx):       Lost

    Word 97:                      Preserved

    OpenDocument (.odt):  Preserved
