Part Two: WordPerfect
By default, you can save documents in WordPerfect 6–X7 format. This ensures cross-platform compatibility for
documents saved in WordPerfect 6.x and later, and lets you save a document in an earlier version of WordPerfect. You
can also save documents in formats other than WordPerfect, such as Microsoft Word.
You can save a single document, or you can save all documents in the current instance of WordPerfect. You can save
a document to a new location. You can also save selected text or graphics in a new WordPerfect document.
Saving without metadata
When you save a document, it may contain information that you do not want others to see — for example, the name
of your computer or a document summary. This information is known as metadata, which is data used to identify,
describe, and locate electronic resources on a network.
Metadata is used to enhance the editing, viewing, filing, and retrieving of electronic documents. It is important to
keep this information stored in the original document, but you can avoid sharing the metadata with others by saving
a version of the document without including the metadata.
WordPerfect lets you create backup copies of documents. Creating backup copies helps prevent the loss of your work
if you close a document before saving it, or if a power failure occurs.
Saving to multiple formats simultaneously
NEW for X7: WordPerfect lets you save a document to WPD, DOC, DOCX, PDF, and HTML5 at the same time.
NEW for X7: When you save an iteration of a file, an updated version of the file is saved with a version number added
to the filename. For example, if you saved the original file as Document. WPD and then save an iteration of the file,
the latest version of the file is saved as Document 1.WPD. For each subsequent iterative save that you perform, the
number added to the filename increases by 1, for example, Document 2.WPD and Document 3.WPD. Iterative saving
is useful if you need to revert to an older version of a file, or simply to track your progress over time.
You can revert a document to its last saved state.
