class Filter(value)[source]

Every filter inside LibreOffice is specified by the properties of this enum.

ALIEN = 64

The filter may lose some information upon saving.

DEFAULT = 256

This is the “best” filter for the document type it works on that is guaranteed not so lose any data on export. By default this filter will be used or suggested for every storing process unless the user has chosen a different default filter in the options dialog.

EXPORT = 2

The filter supports the service com.sun.star.document.ExportFilter. It will be shown in the dialog “File-Export”. If the filter also has the “IMPORT” flag set, it will be shown in the dialog “File-Save”. This makes sure that a format that a user chooses in the save dialog can be loaded again. The same is not guaranteed for a format chosen in “File-Export”.

IMPORT = 1

This filter is used only for internal purposes and so can be used only in API calls. Users won’t see it ever.

INTERNAL = 8

This filter is used only for internal purposes and so can be used only in API calls. Users won’t see it ever.

NOTINCHOOSER = 8192

This filter will not be shown in the dialog box for choosing a filter in case Apache OpenOffice was not able to detect one

NOTINFILEDIALOG = 4096

This filter will not be shown in the file dialog’s filter list

OWN = 32

The filter is a native Apache OpenOffice format (ODF or otherwise).

PREFERRED = 268435456

The filter is preferred in case of multiple filters for the same file type exist in the configuration

READONLY = 65536

All documents imported by this filter will automatically be in read-only state

SUPPORTSSELECTION = 1024

Filter can export only the selected part of a document. This information enables Apache OpenOffice to enable a corresponding check box in the “File-Export” dialog.

TEMPLATE = 4

Filter denotes a template filter (means, by default all documents opened by it become an “untitled” one)

TEMPLATEPATH = 16

Must always be set together with “TEMPLATE” to make this feature flag work; soon becoming deprecated

THIRDPARTYFILTER = 524288

The filter is a UNO component filter, as opposed to the internal C++ filters. This is an artifact that will vanish over time.

AKA: 3RDPARTYFILTER
