Yesterday I saw the {latex-to-word} tag for the first time and decide to add this tag wiki (because there was none):

{latex-to-word} is for questions about conversion from TEX files to DOCX files (MSWord).

But now, I wonder if there is a tag for latex-to-word (MSWord), why not creating one for OpenOffice/LibreOffice Writer and also PowerPoint, OpenOffice Impress, Keynote...? It's endless.

{latex-to-wysiwyg} could be more generic tag but it cannot differentiate "report-like" document (produced by WYSIWYG softwares, e.g. MSWord, OpenOffice/LibreOffice, etc.) from "presentation-like" document (produced by WYSIWYG softwares, e.g. MSPowerPoint, OpenOffice/LibreOffice, etc.).

So, any idea of two new tags able to differentiate conversion to "report-like" document (produced by WYSIWYG software) from conversion to "presentation-like" document?

BTW, "latex-to-word" could be used to designate all "report-like" documents produced by WYSIWYG softwares, but it's maybe too much implicit...

I know that probably most of people here don't understand the point of converting LaTeX to word but please avoid the discussion on this post ;)

    Yes it could be suffiscient ultimately because if it concerns PowerPoint, then the tag {beamer} will probabely be added too, which permits to make the distinction…

  • Given msword exists I would have said latex-to-word should be about word processors in general, I don't think it's a particularly useful tag anyway though, only 61 questions, a large minority of which are closed, a reasonable fraction could be retagged to just use pandoc or tex4ht and msword, and of the remaining maybe half of those aren't about wholesale filetype conversion.
