I have not faced your particular problem, as I have only run WordPerfect for the Mac, and not WP for Windows. Someone else here may have an answer for you, but if not, you might want to join this group: <http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MacLaw/>; and ask over there.
As your firm proceeds with its transition to the Mac platform, you may have other Mac-related questions that are off-topic for this group, but that are on-topic for the other one.
With best regards,
