    When trying to transfer text having some words in bold type and some without, the transfer to Corel X5 is ok except all the bold words are now non bold. The change is from Abati saved as "Word" to Corel X5.How can I transfer text from Abiti to ensure all wordfs are exactly as they were originaly typed?l Thank you.

    1. I saved Abati as MW,copied and pasted to Corel.(MW format)
    2. I saved Abati as RTF- copied and pasted to Corel
    Each time I pasted to Corel, an error message appeared;"File appears corrupted"

    What is this "Abati" you are using?

    What type of file is a "MW"?

    Are you using a MAC?

    Item Number 1, which I have never heard of til now.

    Item number 2, either you have MS Word or WordPerfect, they are 2 different products.

    Item Number 3, From http://www.abisource.com/support/require/ No listing for XP, Vista or Windows 7, which may be part of your problem.

    Thanks for your help. Please note: Although Abiword is not listed as suitable for Windows 7, It has worked fine for me. I was finally able to transfer the text Complete with Bold words by converting to PDF, Word Perfect X5 supports such transfers. With regard to Microsoft Word, Word Perfect can be opened either as WordPerfect or---Microsoft Word.

    What are you saying?

    If I read this right, you are saying that WordPerfect can fire up MS Word?

    Or are you saying that a "DOC" file can be opened by either Word or WodrPerfect, if one has both on the machine?

    Although you *could* write a WordPerfect macro to fire up Word, I doubt he's talking about that. I'm also not sure he was talking about opening a Word file in WordPerfect although it's perfectly capable of doing so. I note that he referred to 'copying and pasting' however, which is entirely different. Since he appears to have solved his problem I don't know if he'll be back, but if he does return perhaps he could tell us which version of Word's format he was saving it to? I've found RTF to be rather unreliable for converting attributes-it's basically a text format after all.
