Converting MS Word to WordPerfect

by cliffmc on Wed Jun 08, 2005 6:52 pm
Being a strong proponent of WordPerfect, I find myself constantly converting MS Word docs to WP. How can I get rid of all those stupid codes imbedded in the Word doc? I have been using Find/Replace for each code, but that’s very cumbersome. Thanks for any advice.

Use ‘Paste Simple”. That pastes text without the codes.

Control-shift-V in versions of WP up to 10. For 11 & 12, Alt-Ctrl C. Or use the entry in the Edit menu.

That won’t clean up everything. For the really messy stuff, paste into Notepad or any other non-formatting text editor like NoteTab Pro (http://www.fookes.com), and then copy/paste back out into WordPerfect.

WOW! That’s much better. I’ve been looking for that forever. I really hate all that messy stuff in Word docs. I figure Word is for people not smart enough to use WordPerfect! Thanks a bunch. Cliff 😀

Are you trying to describe a boss of mine? I really think that Word is for people not smart enough to know that there is an easier way of doing most things.
