Question about Corel WordPerfect Office 12 Standard Edition for PC

1 Answer

Using Wordperfect 12, I sometimes need to type 2 hyphens (--).

When I type the two hyphens and hit the space bar, WP 12 converts it to one wider hyphen. I just want two hyphens. E.G.: Joe the dog -- the cat.

Go to tools, QuickCrorrect, Format as you go and turn off anything you don't want.
I have the lot turned off.
Any of the things on the Quick correct menus can bog or crash WP.

Activation code for corel wordperfect 6

If you are in fact after WordPerfect X6 - buy it from Corel Corel Corporation or a software retailer such as WordPerfect latestir?t=organicexchan-20&l=ur2&o=1
Now, for a very different version - that I suspect is not what you want, buy WordPerfect 6 activation codes from
WordPerfect Software for sale
But be aware that WP 6 is a very old piece of software. It is perhaps the best word processor ever built, but it runs on DOS and DOS emulators only.
And it is magic.

Do you know the version number of WordPerfect X4 you have installed?

What version of Windows are you using (e.g. XP, Vista or Win7)

Make sure you have the latest service pack installed:

One issue is that the JPEG filter is not compatible with the images you are using, that is why the ones that you save in PhotoShop work, because it re-creates the images using a different JPEG filter.

the work around for that issue would be to re-save the JPEG's that are not working in PhotoShop or any other photo editing software. PaintShop Photo Pro X3 has a built in batch convert were it will allow you to save a batch of files to a different format.

Another reason and this is only if you are using XP with a P4 processor is that there is a known issue with app in WPX4 that is called CDRCONV.EXE. There is a workaround for the known issue, click on the link below for the work around:

WordPerfect 12 is almost certainly incompatible with Windows 7 -- and is the reason you are getting the error message. The current version of WordPerfect is X4 -- at least 3 upgrade versions from version 12.

The drivers in version 12 were for Windows 98 / 2000. It would have worked OK with XP and maybe even Vista - but Win-7 is a new OS altogether. Sorry, but it sounds like you may need to do an upgrade.

Kyocera FS-2020D Driver maybe not compatible w/WP 8

To verify it is a driver issue you can uninstall the printer driver and see if you get back the lost functions. If you do then it is a driver issue. I can't say I have run in to this before.

When I try and insert a photograph, Word Perfect locks and I have to reboot. The photo is in JPG format. What am I doing wrong. I have WP Office 12 Home Edition. Advice please.

Can you open the image in Paint? Then save it back to the disk with a new name. Then try to insert it into WordPerfect. If you can at least see it on the screen , then you can prt-screen it, paste it into Paint and save it. Then insert into WP.

Wordperfect crashed in the middle of working on a document

Find the WP directory and locate the backup file. Copy it to somewhere else.

The directory will be something like WordPerfect\12\Backup with various other directories on the front of that such as c:\program files\ etc.

Open the copy and see how much of the original is present.
