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. ----- Original Message ----- From: Amy Goldring Tajalli To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Saturday, August 26, 2006 9:33 AM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: New volunteer first validation 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, Amy omst Finding those cats has to be easier. ----- Original Message ----- From: Amy Goldring Tajalli To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Friday, August 25, 2006 3:14 PM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: New volunteer first validation 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.
