Description matthewmason 2007-03-31 18:26:56 UTC
All of my legal files that were prepared in WordPerfect on pleadings paper are
not converted well by OpenOffice.  Instead of seeing the 28 lines along the side
of the paper, I see only sixteen.  2/3 of each page is white space.  All the
text appears on the bottom 1/3 of the page, and thus there are three times as
many pages as there should be.

please attach sample file for evaluation.
Comment 3 kpalagin 2007-04-04 19:11:49 UTC
Confirming with 2.2m8 on WinXP - first line of text is located not at the top 
of the document (as seen in Word 2003), but very close to the bottom (as 
Writer shows it).

please send your confidential file to mru@openoffice DOT org.

Dear developers,
please see if we can fix import filter so that we can capture customers 
migrating from Word Perfect.
