    Docx does preview, Doc does not

    Hi,

    Some of my primary schools still have office 2003 installed. I have noticed that the right click preview option is missing when selecting a .Doc file but does work for .Docx files.

    Is this by design? Is it possible to fix?

    It's by design, it's hard to decode the binary .doc format, where as the xml/zip .docx format can be parsed
