Why is is updating again and again to Version 9.2.8?

I like this app as it makes it very easy to get WordPerfect documents into Word. Wonder why Microsoft stopped doing the file translation. Not long ago you could open a Word Perfect document in Word and then save it as a Word document.

My concern is that I see a notice that the WordPerfect Document Viewer has been updated. Each of the last five or six updates have all been to the same revision, Version 9.2.8. Each have come in on a different date, with two coming in today. Are these really updates, or is the same update being loaded and installed again and again. If so, seems like a waste of computer time and storage space. Also is distracting to see the message pop up on the screen every day.

Perfect for Law Students on a Budget

Unlike literally every other word processor I can think of, WordPerfect doesn’t offer a super cheap version of their software for law students. By unfortunate coincidence, most of us have Macs. If you’re a law student and your shiny new internship just gave you an assignment involving a whole bunch of .wpd documents that you can’t open on your MacBook, this is the app for you. I’m not sure what the other reviewers were talking about re: copy/paste functionality, but so far I haven’t encountered any formatting or copy/paste issues.

WordPerfect Document Viewer

In a word, FANTASTIC! My first word processor was none other than WordPerfect. This was back when Microsoft was just a DOS directory GUI (2.1), and as a result, I have thousands of documents and many long ago forgotten. Recently I needed to resurrect a few documents and felt lost. Now with this application I am able to view and save off to a readable format.

Thank you LawBox LLC, you are the best!
