Wordpro formatting problem

  sheila.weston 14:38 07 Dec 2007

I have created a file in Open Office and saved it as *.doc. As I am not getting along very well with Open Office I have reverted to my usual WP program of Lotus Wordpro.

The first letter of every paragraph appears to be in an image file.

ie instead of an indent followed by 'As the only..............' I have:'s the |A|only' with the 's' transposed to the beginning of the line and the 'A' in a small box which shows when I put the cursor over it. I can delete and retype, but the box etc reappears. I haven't got 'drop capitals' selected. What else can it be?

Thank you for any help.

Go back to Open Office and save the file as an
.rtf (Rich Text Format) file.

You should then be able to open in Wordpro, or any other Wordprocessor.
