A little computer help >_>

Postby Cyrus_Soulfire » Fri Dec 19, 2003 5:49 pm

Does anyone know how to translate Microsoft Word documents into Word Perfect? (This would really help me out as well as the continuation of Sapphire's Awakening >_>)

The not-so-sure way.

File -> Save as, then click on the "Save file as type:" and see if WordPerfect (if you're using MSWord) or Microsoft Word (if you're using WordPerfect) is there.

Sure-fire-way:

Copy-paste

What's the extension of the file you need to format (.gif, .swf, etc.)? Maybe you could use another program, open it, then save it using the extension you need to make it into.

Be sure to save, if you try this.....

:wink:

Save it as a .txt then open it... any program reads text files... It may need a few touch ups after that though.. but at least you don't need to rewrite it all.

Isn't Microsoft Word files in .doc? If so, then you could use Microsoft Wordpad (the one that allows .rtf, .doc, etc.- not the bare-bones one, which i think is notepad) to open up the file.

hmm... maybe I should try that someday, however I did manage to translate part of it and then transferred it to (copy and paste) word perfect. I was then able to work on some of my stuff after that =\
