more modifications.

   2. Click on File from the Menu Bar.
   3. Select Open….
   4. Browse the folder structure to locate the WordPerfect document to convert.
   5. Select the file to convert and double click.

Very Important:
In the past some offices have used their own extensions changing what other programs identify
them WordPerfect documents. Those modified file extensions originally created in
WordPerfect will need to be renamed using the extension of (.wpd).
Examples: Wrong extension                        Correct extension
