Is there a known problem with Smashwords and OpenOffice

I have tried at least a dozen times to upload an OpenOffice file saved as a Word doc to Smashwords.

It keeps telling me there is a problem with the paragraph formatting. I want to use block paragraph formatting and have been through my document time after time checking that there are no first line indents. And there are not any.

I can highlight the whole book and there are no first line indents showing.

I have made sure there are no extra hard returns.

I have even done a Nuclear Method of formatting and then when I uploaded that I got the very same message saying there was a problem with the paragraph formatting.

Does anyone know if there is a known problem with OpenOffice and Smashwords because this is driving me crazy.

It is such a shame that Smashwords do not have their own community page or forum to discuss this sort of problem with. There only advice is to pay someone to do it for you, but I am not knew to this sort of thing so donīt want to pay someone else to do something that I should be able to do myself.

Anyone else had this sort of problem?
