Need to view a WordPerfect document on your Mac? There's an app for that.


Finally, you can view the contents of WordPerfect email attachments without having to ask a friend to borrow their Windows laptop!

WPD Viewer converts WordPerfect documents into PDF, RTF, or TXT. Drag and drop files into WPD Viewer, or open them directly.

Our handy batch conversion feature allows you convert all of your documents at once!

Once you've exported your WordPerfect document, you can edit the results in your word processor of choice.

• WordPerfect Viewer is NOT an editor: it converts your WPD documents into a format that can be read on your Mac.

• WordPerfect Viewer supports documents from most versions of WordPerfect, including WordPerfect 4-11 (Windows), and WordPerfect 1-3.5 (Mac).

• WordPerfect Viewer does NOT preserve complex page formatting, metadata, margins, headers or footers.

• WPD WPD WPD WPD. As of version 2.0, documents no longer need a .wpd extension for WordPerfect Viewer to recognize them as WordPerfect documents.

Please see the screenshots for representative examples of converted content.

WordPerfect Viewer is not endorsed, supported, sanctioned, approved, or manufactured by Corel Corporation or Corel Corporation Limited.

Bad performance

This app pretty much took my money because it didn’t convert my file to word document.

Just purchased - Not working. Doesn’t seem to recognize WPD docs

I just purchased this app. Very disappointed! It does not recongize my WordPerfect documents, which is the whole point. Seems to be a waste of money. Perhaps that’s why it’s on sale!

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.
