  • A few years ago I posted an OS X utility that was supposed to convert WPG files to PNG files, but it didn't work on any system except mine. I tried again, and this time I think it may actually work. Here's the link: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/271144/WPG%20Converter.zip Drop a WPG file on it (or double-click the app itself and then select a file), and it will try to create...

  • Just to clarify: The easiest way to do this is to get an old Mac PowerBook running the old Mac OS with a floppy drive installed. Then you'll need to get the data from the PowerBook to the modern world, but an Ethernet cable should accomplish that.

  • 1.4MB floppies. There is no such thing as a USB flopy drive that reads Mac 800 floppies. Mac-formatted floppies can only be read by an internal drive on an old Mac or on a floppy drive that connects to the ADB port (NOT a USB port) on an old Mac. (There are obsolete add-in cards for 1980s-era DOS PCs that can also read these disks, but it's not a practical solution.)

  • You make this far easier by running WPWin6 in Parallels (in "coherence mode" or "unity mode" or whatever they call it that lets you run the program in a Window under OS X) and then running WPDOS directly under OS X with the method described here: http://www.columbia.edu/~em36/wpdos/wpdosboxmac.html No need for VirtualPC or Win98DOS, but you'll probably still need to open the floppy...

  • The tilde (=also finds synonyms) hasn't worked for a couple of years. Google's help pages have an udpated list of these operators, which may be worth hunting for.

  • The WPMacApp overwrites itself completely whenever you install a new version. However, it leaves any existing preferences file in place (in the user's Library/Preferences folder). The preferences file doesn't contain anything that should get in the way of startup, but I've now posted a new version of the WPMacApp that includes a startup option to delete the existing preference file...

  • For the record, here is how to change the default zoom level in the WPMacApp, so that you can view text at larger than the default ("100%") size. In an earlier message I wrote that this is complicated; I forgot that I had written a macro that does the whole job behind the scenes. Open the WPMacApp. From the WordPerfect top-line menu, choose, Tools -> Macro -> Set Default Zoom...

  • Hello Sammi, I'm the person who put together the WPMacApp (though it is based almost entirely on work by Jon Rethorst and Smokey Ardisson and others), and I tend to think that you would be better off running WordPerfect for Windows on a Mac, using Parallels Desktop or VMware Fusion in order to run them in an OS X window. Search online for information on using Parallels or VMware. I...

  • Why not try it and see? Place it in your Documents folder in OS X. Start the WPMacApp and open the "Unix" folder; copy Quicken from the Unix folder to the Applications folder the WPMacApp system. Do not try to run it from the Unix folder; only from the Applications folder in the WPMacApp. It may work; it may not; but the only way to find out is to try it.
