Word Perfect 12 document opening

Postby Kingsleystag61 » Wed Oct 03, 2012 8:28 pm

How can I open my old Word Perfect 12 files in Open Office? When I attempt to do so I get an O.O. note asking for character format which I cannot work past.

Hi and welcome to the forum!
The Word perfect filters were removed because of licensing issues. See this discussion Problem opening WPD files in OpenOffice 3.4 for a solution.

Please add '[Solved]' at the beginning of your first post title (edit button) if your issue has been fixed.
AOO 4.1.5 on Xubuntu 18.04 and on Windows 7 (with winPenPack port).
