Version 2.9.8
Review by Veehbj

Why is is updating again and again to Version 9.2.8? - I like this app as it makes it very easy to get WordPerfect documents into Word. Wonder why Microsoft stopped doing the file translation. Not long ago you could open a Word Perfect document in Word and then save it as a Word document. My concern is that I see a notice that the WordPerfect Document Viewer has been updated. Each of the last five or six updates have all been to the same revision, Version 9.2.8. Each have come in on a different date, with two coming in today. Are these really updates, or is the same update being loaded and installed again and again. If so, seems like a waste of computer time and storage space. Also is distracting to see the message pop up on the screen every day.

Version 1.1
Review by Jason Lich

Not good - This app ruines the document formatting and does not show all of the text in the document. Page width is gone, the page is as wide as the window. Page height and page breaks are gone, it's just one long page. Headers and footers are gone. I recived a document with headers and footers that was 4 pages long in Word Perfect. However, in this program the headers and footers were gone, and, when I when to print, it was 9 pages long. I would not recommend this app if you want to accually see the document how it was intented to look. If all you want to see is the text in the body of the document then this app may be for you. It wasn't for me.

Review by stillinger

Fast, reliable…great - I use this app just about every day, and it’s been a lifesaver. My wife’s company deals with a large number of file types, and guess who gets to deal with them? This guy. Anyway, the people that make WPD and several other file readers sure got it down. (tho my wife thinks Im the clever one and let’s just say I don’t disabuse her of this notion lol) Anyway, great app!!

Version 2.9.8
Review by Mr.BrianSR

WordPerfect Document Viewer - In a word, FANTASTIC! My first word processor was none other than WordPerfect. This was back when Microsoft was just a DOS directory GUI (2.1), and as a result, I have thousands of documents and many long ago forgotten. Recently I needed to resurrect a few documents and felt lost. Now with this application I am able to view and save off to a readable format. Thank you LawBox LLC, you are the best!

Version 2.9.8
Review by Rlwesty

Works Perfect - Yea! I thought these files were lost forever. Installed app, dropped a WP file written in 1993 (with no extension!) on the app and, voila, the file opened with formatting intact ready to work with in Word. Fabulous and worth the price.

Version 2.9.8
Review by Ghtrg

Meh - It converts about as well as a mediocre OCR program for PDFs — the documents I converted were not really usable, even to cut and paste, when converted to Word. It would not handle footnotes at all, and every footnote was printed multiple times. You are better off using OpenOffice.
