- Jun 7 6:09 PMGeoff, I recently played around with WPWin 11, and it will import WPMac
files, though WPMac is not listed under export formats. The trick is
that the WPMac files have to be in the 3.x format rather than 3.5e AKA
WPMac 4. Save As WP 3.x, or use the droplet in John’s WordPerfect Tips
& Macros under File types:
"You might want to change some files from WP version 3’s format to the
newer 3.5e type or vice versa, for example to import into a page layout
program. This AppleScript does it easily. It’s a droplet, so you can
drag and drop one or more files on it in the Finder, or double-click to
open and choose a file to change. Save this script in your AppleScript
editor as an application, not showing startup screen:
set theFile to choose file with prompt "Choose a file:"
on open theDrop
repeat with theFile in theDrop
tell application "Finder"
if file type of theFile contains "WPD3" then
set file type of theFile to "WPD4"
else if file type of theFile contains "WPD4" then
set file type of theFile to "WPD3"
John, hope you don't mind my simply pasting your AppleScript into the
message like this. I have used it a lot.
ALSO, the file has to have the .wpm file extension for WPWin to open it
(don't know if .wpd would work, haven't tried that; I do these
experiments on a PC at the hospital that has WPWin 11 installed).
Hope this helps.
