If a document has been changed so that its type is WPD4, then I think it can only be opened by 3.5e (Enhanced). If you want it to open in plain old 3.5 (NOT Enhanced), then save it in 3.x format, specify it to open in Corel WordPerfect and see if that helps. Please let us know.

Another possibility is simply to delete 3.5e (enhanced) from the WPMacApp and use the included copy of 3.5.4 instead, if that's what you've got in Classic. 3.5.4 may work just as well in the WPMacApp, but the first time you run the various macros, they may ask you to tell them where to find WordPerfect. This may make it easier to use the WPMacApp and 3.5.4 on the same machine.
