Re: Word Perfect 9 Support

Hello John Jenks,

Which version of UFTree are you using? 3.0?

I hope you kept a copy of the original of the PD.ini file so you can put it back the way it was.

I found the instructions you used for changing that file in Help but I don't think it is necessary to change the PD.ini file to use WP9 as your UFTree Print to File Word Processor.

Help file --
"Four configuration switches are available to help solve problems which may occur within the program."

What problems were you having?

"NoLogo - This setting is used to control the display of bitmaps (pictures, screens, etc.) within Ultimate Family Tree."

That does not sound like it has anything to do with WP.

"FontStyle - This setting controls the tiling and placement of bitmaps within Ultimate Family Tree."

That doesn't sound like a problem caused by WP.
       
"WPWin7 - This setting is used if UFT does not determine automatically that you have WordPerfect version 7 when generating RTF reports."

Heavens to Betsy. I use WPWIN7 and have never had this problem. Besides, you are using WP9.

"WPNoLine - This setting is used if you are experiencing problems with the line drawing characters with WordPerfect."

Was this your problem using WP9? Not with my WP7.

I use WP7 and never changed the PD.ini file.

I cannot find those instructions in the UFTree 3.0 manual on the CD. That manual mentions PD.ini on only one page, 332, and that refers to GP faults, and I think GP faults have nothing to do with your word processor?

Were you getting GP faults?

I suspect you may have gotten a tech person who did not really know what he/she was doing.

There are several diehard WP users easily using WP as the UFTree Print to File Word Processor.

Richard Cleaveland is an expert on using WP with UFTree.

Let's see what he has to say.
