    Hi, newbie question here.
    Is it possible to extract the saved thumbnail bitmap from a Word (or any office document) on Linux?
    In the COM world it's IExtractImage - wondering if it can be done on Linux...

    Background information:
    In Microsoft Office files there's an option in File -> Properties to 'Save Preview Picture' which creates a small bitmap that can be seen in Windows explorer when in the Thumbnail view mode.

    Thanks in advance,
