Description William Hayashi 2012-06-02 10:43:29 UTC
I am very please with the ability of LO to import WordPerfect document files with near perfect accuracy. However I am curious why a "Save As" function for WP format was not included as well.

Not that I represent the norm, far from it.  However, I am a writer and primarily use WP for writing novels and screenplays and would like to use a document processor native to the Mac OS environment that supports the WP format for transportability between home/office-based and mobile platforms.

[de]" Der Import von in WordPerfect erstellten Dokumenten wurde wie auch der Export ins Rich Text Format deutlich verbessert." from http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/LibreOffice

Maybe you should have a look at the advanced install ;)

I don't understand why the Status of this report is "NEEDINFO"; therefore set Status to "NEW", because this report is a valid feature/enancement request: the reporter requests a WordPerfekt *export* filter, and LibreOffice really does not have such a filter.

Changed Platform to "All", because this is not a MacOS X specific issue.

Sorry, but why should this quote help the reporter? First, it is in German, and we can't assuem that Mr. Hayashi reads German (why should he?); second, the quote talks about WordPerfect *import* and *RTF* export, not about WordPerfect *export*, as the reporter requested.
