LibreOffice and Nisus Writer Pro

Nisus Writer Pro (NWP) versions 2.0.1 and later use modified LibreOffice code to help with the conversion of certain file formats. Under the LibreOffice licenses any modified copies of the source code must be published and made available. The source code of the LibreOffice derived tool used by Nisus Writer can be downloaded below.

Nisus Software's Modifications

The tool built from the modified LibreOffice code listens for file translation requests using Cocoa's Distributed Notification Center. Once a request is detected the normal LibreOffice document objects load the file and resave it using the desired output filter.

Additionally, the code below includes some fixes to LibreOffice's RTF export, which Nisus Writer relies upon to import translated data.
