Word for Windows 1.x Converter Enhancements in WinWord 6.0

PSS ID Number: Q107733 Article last modified on 11-01-1994



The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for Windows, version 6.0


Included below is a summary of corrections made to the WORDWIN1.CNV converter in Word 6.0 that is used to convert documents to Word for Windows 1.x format. All improvements listed have been made since the immediately previous Word 2.0c product release. These enhancements include:

  • Embedded graphics not linked to file are no longer lost.
  • Vertical pipe characters are no longer inserted preceding empty FILLIN fields.
  • Superscript and subscript formatting is no longer lost.
  • Incorrect character color formats are no longer applied.
  • Footnote numbers set to restart at section are now converted as such. Previously, they were converted to continuously numbered footnotes.
  • Footnotes positioned at end-of-section or end-of-document are now converted as such. Previously, all footnotes were converted to bottom-of- page position.
  • Footnote starting numbers greater than 1 are now retained. Previously, all starting numbers reverted to 1.
  • Strikethrough character format is now retained as such. Previously, strikethrough was converted to revisions marked for deletion.
  • Custom footnote separator, continuation separator, and continuation notice are now retained. Previously, all were converted to default separator values.
  • Multilevel paragraph numbering is now correctly preserved. Previously, underscores were errantly inserted in multilevel layouts. For example, 1.1.1 might appear as 1._1._1. in Word 1.x.

Note: This converter is not used to read Word 1.x documents into Word 6.0, and none of the problems referenced above affect this conversion direction.
