Re: Download PAF 5

Posting only one message is a lot like eating only one potato chip. You just can't do it.

But here's what I learned this morning. My current installation of MSWord 97 does not have any Service Release (SR-1 or SR-2)updates on it. It does NOT display PAF RTF exports properly.

These two facts may or may not be related.

Wordperfect 9 DOES seem to display these same imported RTF files properly, as does Wordpad. Wordpad, of course, strips off a lot of formatting, including headers and footers but it does look more or less correct.

As an aside, probably all Worperfect users have by now learned that most (all?) versions of WP8 had major problems converting RTF.

Good luck.
