OO5 Backward Compatibility?

If I upgrade to OO5 will my colleague running OO4 still be able to read / write to the same files?

My primary use for OO is to keep meeting notes in the app on my mac which I share with others via a synchronized Box.com folder. We don’t use the iOS app.

You have the option to convert the files to a new format. Don’t do that if you want backwards compatibility.

Thank you!

You can also export to the OO4 format if you make new files in v5 you want to send them.
