I remember 5.1, too! I haven't worked with WP since 6.0. Take care.

Wow!  WordPerfect 12 still gives you the option of working in 5.1 mode? 
That is great.  I still remember that program fondly, and I guess a lot of 
other people do as well, for them to keep that option for so many years.

  Dear Laura Ann,

  When I originally saved The Tale of Genji as an rtf file somehow I made it 
as a Wordpad file  apparently as I had to put it somewhere. l also, I now 
discover, have it in Word Perfect 12 as compatible with Word  as a read only 
but I can edit it if I change the name. Okay. Now I want to have it as 
OpenBook and and to edit there.  Can you help me or have I completely 
muddied the water.  The wordpad rtf Genji is edit-able but when I tried to 
move it to Openbook it coverted back to wordpad or was read-only in O-B. All 
this confusion is making my head spin.

  Before I started as a volunteer with Bookshare I considered myself a 
fairly reasonable, educable teacher of writing which means I helped students 
edit their work.  Now If I can edit a freshman's confusion I really should 
be able to validate a copy of a published masterwork with the original in my 
lap but . . . .

  Can you help me out of this mess. Since I am available most of the time 
but I do not want you to be stuck with the phone bill for the telephone call 
if you will tell me when to call you - edt or cdt - I will be delighted to 
call you.  Especially since the print size is no longer a problem if you 
have the solution to the conversion all will be well.

  OOPS - I don't know if it is an added problem but once in WordPerfect 12 I 
get to choose between Word Perfect Mode, WordPerfect Classic Mode (5.1), 
Microsoft Word Mode,  and Word Perfect Legal Mode.  I have always chosen 
Microsoft Word Mode (I am not certain why)  but with and, I believe all 4 of 
them there is a period when it undergoes "conversion".  I don't know how 
relevant to my coversion to Openbook this is but I cannot open the file 
without making a choice. [coverting from one program to another seems almost 
more complicated as coverting from one religion to another].  I am beginning 
to feel like a "bloomin' idjut".

  Yours truly,

  Finding those cats has to be easier.

    I sent you a note asking what the openbook folder was  - I am more than 
a little slow today and am running on too many days of too little sleep 
[and if Tybalt doesn't let me sleep I am going to read 1000 uses for a Dead 
Cat].  I know assume that you are talking about the file categey in 
OpenBook.  Thank you.  I will try it as soon as I get at least a nap.  As 
you can see the date I am slowly catching up on mail starting with the 
newest0  If nothing before, and if there is something on tv I really want to 
see, I will probably fall asleep during whatever it is and wake up in time 
to be awake all night.  That is why I usually answer mail in the early am. 
I'll let you know how it goes.
