conversion to Word
- 21 nov 2006 kl. 18.01 skrev J.J. McVeigh:
"I downloaded the wpd file in question. MacLink
Plus immediately recognized it as a WordPerfect 2
for Mac document, and was able to readily convert
it to a WP 3.5ep document, to a Word X for Mac
Document, to a Word 98 document, and to a Word
Windows XP document."
"I was able to open the converted files using WP
3.5ep for Mac, and Word X. In all cases, the
opened files look the same.... ."
Thanks for the help!

in WP-Mac 3.5e, so just an update about the NeoOffice/AbiWord routes.
The current versions of NeoOffice and AbiWord are using older
versions of the libwpd library (which handles translating WordPerfect
documents), but the latest version of libwpd handles this file just
fine (thanks in part to a member of this list who sent me a bunch of
WP 2 documents earlier this year). Whenever NeoOffice and AbiWord
update to the latest libwpd, they'll be able to open WP2 (and WP1, as
well as WP3 and 3.5e) documents properly, too (for NeoOffice this is
currently scheduled for the next major release).
