Printer and Conversion Update

WordPerfect Corporation has always had a policy of responding to
customer needs between major product upgrades. The Printer and
Conversion Update disk is an example of our commitment to better
serve our customers. This disk is not an interim release, but an
update disk that addresses some specific issues listed below:

Conversion of Fonts: When converting WordPerfect 5.x documents to
WordPerfect 6.0 format, fonts were not converting correctly at
times. Fonts will now convert correctly if the same printer is
selected in WPWin 6.0. If the font is not found or the font
information is incomplete, the fonts will default to Times New
Roman, Courier, or Arial.

Conversion of Codes: In WordPerfect 5.1 documents, page-oriented
codes (such as headers or footers) which are preceded by text on
the page would take effect on the next page. When converting to
WordPerfect 6.0 format, these codes would override any similar
codes on that same page if they were in a style. Because of this
update disk, these page codes in styles will now be placed in
delay codes, so that they will go into effect on the following
page. However, please be aware that if the page codes are
combined in the style with other types of codes that cannot be
delayed, the code in the style will still override the code at
the top of the page.

Printing: With PostScript and HP WordPerfect printer drivers
(*.PRS), WPWin 6.0 printed ATM and TrueType text as graphics,
which caused large output file sizes and long total print times.
WPWin 6.0 now downloads ATM and TrueType fonts to these printers,
improving overall printing speed.

WPDraw: With some scanners, the error message "Scan Operation
Failed..." would appear and prevent an image from scanning
directly into WPDraw. The scanners causing this error message
included: Logitech 256 grey scale, Mustek HT 800 Turbo and
MarsTech CG6000. These scanners can now scan directly into

Pleading Enhancement: To answer requests from the legal
community, a pleading macro (PLEADING.WCM) and a pleading
template (PLEADING.WPT) are now shipping with WPWin 6.0. This
automated template guides the user through the creation of a
pleading document.

Optimizing WPWin 6.0

Understanding the following three issues will help users to
better operate WPWin 6.0:

1. If you are using a 256-color driver and are having general
problems with WordPerfect 6.0 for Windows, try using the /fl
startup switch. You can add this startup switch by editing the
command line found under Properties of the WPWin 6.0 icon (for
example, c:\wpwin60\wpwin.exe /fl). In the Windows Program
Manager, select the WPWin 6.0 icon, and choose Properties from
the File menu.

2. We are aware of conflicts with a Windows file, DDEML.DLL,
dated 4/22/92. The correct version of this file should be found
in your System directory (e.g., c:\windows\system). If you find
this file (DDEML.DLL, 4/22/92) in your Windows directory, please
rename or delete it.

3. Many performance issues can be resolved by optimizing your
machine to run under Windows. We suggest the following:

* Use a disk cache such as SmartDrive
* Set up a permanent swap file; for example, one common
configuration is to have the total of your physical RAM plus your
swap file equal 16MB
* Have an adequate files statement in your CONFIG.SYS; we
recommend 50, or more if you are running multiple Windows

As previously stated, the Printer and Conversion Update disk is
not an interim release. We are planning to ship an interim
release (WPWin 6.0a) during the first quarter of 1994. As always
we hope that you will communicate with us if you have any
questions or concerns. We are pleased by your interest in
WordPerfect 6.0 for Windows and look forward to your feedback as
we continue to enhance our Windows word processor.
