No Problem!

Actually we've never been able to save in MS Word format. Dom hopes to
able to do this eventually. What we can do
and are continually getting better at is saving in Rich Text Format
(*.rtf) which is MS own inter-operable format.

For professor who require *.doc files, export your stuff as RTF then
rename the document to *.doc. MS Word will read it fine. Easy :-)

(Even easier to save as RTF but actually give your filename a *.doc
