How do I open LotusWord Pro documents? When I click on the document in Windows Explorer, I get a blank screen. When I enter LibreOffice and open the document, I get a blank screen. In LibreOffice, I File/Open, change the file selection to Lotus WordPro document (*.lwp), select the file and still get a blank screen.


Can you post the file on nabble? A brief check indicates that *.lwp files should open in LO/OOo.

I wasn't quite sure how to navigate nabble. I'm not talking of one file, I'm talking of hundreds and hundreds of Lotus WordPro documents. My client's 3rd Lotus WordPro installation floppy disk corrupted, so he cannot install his Lotus WordPro. However, he wants to be able to access his Lotus WordPro documents. I understood by the advertising on the LibreOffice web site that LibreOffice could read Lotus WordPro documents, that it was a "new feature" for 3.4.5 It was also posted as a "new feature" for3.3 I was just at the LibreOffice web site and since my posting of this question, now the ability to read Lotus WordPro documents is no longer there for 3.4.5, as well as being able to read other types of documents. However, under the new features of 3.3 IS the ability to read Lotus WordPro documents. So I downloaded the provided sample. LibreOffice read that sample fine, but still won't read true LWP documents. I used 3.3 and downloaded and installed 3.4.5


Is it possible that Lotus Symphony can read Word Pro? You can download Symphony in rpm format for Linux.
