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,
