Installing "Open WP Files in OSX 0.3"
- First, trash version 0.2 of this applet and empty the trash. Also, if
the WordPerfect application is on a mounted OSX volume, trash
that too. Then unzip 0.3. You may have to log out and back in
to see the WP document icons.
- The icons aren't appearing yet since the method I used was how
Classic apps did it. OSX apps like this one, duh, do it differently.
So give me another week or so. The upside is that we can use a
completely new, high-definition icon for WP documents in the OSX
Finder. Anyone have an idea for a new icon?
