Hi Marina,

About fdo#82067, i'm not a dev as well, but i think if the RTF opens in
Word, Kingsoft Writer, and in the old RTF importer that libreoffice had
in 3.3, then it should work now. Lets see what the devs think of it. :)

You mentioned previously that Italy's Public Adminstrations uses rtf
files for their workflow, is it just opening rtfs to convert them to odf
or saving them also in rtf?

We could try to import the selected type of anchor specified in the document and use the "as character" one as a legacy mode. While creating a new rtf file we could try to use only the anchor "as character", after informing the user of this kind of choice.
