WD5X: Format Style in Converted WordPerfect File Hangs MacWord

PSS ID Number: Q108225 Article last modified on 11-25-1998

MACINTOSH:5.0, 5.1

MACINTOSH

======================================================================

The information in this article applies to:

  • == Microsoft Word for the Macintosh, versions 5.0, 5.1, and 5.1a ==

SYMPTOMS

If you click Format on the Style menu after opening a WordPerfect document that was saved in WordPerfect 5.0/5.1 format from WordPerfect 2.0 for the Macintosh, Microsoft Word may stop responding.

WORKAROUND

A WordPerfect 2.0 for the Macintosh file converter is now available for use with Word. Therefore, there is no longer a need to save WordPerfect 2.0 for the Macintosh documents into WordPerfect for MS-DOS format to make these documents readable. For more information on how to obtain this converter, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
