More than I expected - Flawless indeed
Any person who had this not work, might try downloading again because it worked perfectly for me - on a 2010 MacMini.
I have a boatload of old .wps files from a Windows computer where I was using Works for years - for decades. So I read the reviews, thought about my options, and gave it the old $5 try.
Not only was the operational dialog window intuitive and clear, it then did exactly as I set up my choices : export as .rtf - “Source as destination folder” - and the two “Keep" date options. Voila ! After the Export button was clicked, very little time went by, it said Successful - and it was. There next to my original file was the .rtf file I asked for. Pages can open it just fine. Hallejulah !
SO . . . after I had moved and “Exported” a few individual files - I decided to give it an acid test. I drag/dropped a whole folder into WPSConvert - figuring that I could just delete any non .wps files. There was no need !!! WPSConvert simply pulled over ONLY the .wps files. I clicked Export All - a small amount of time, and “Successful” came up - I checked my folders - ( Insert huge Smiley Face here !! ) - Every old .wps file now had right next to it an .rtf file.
This old-engineer-fart, who wrote Fortran programs more than 50 years ago, and was dreading the hours and hassles of file conversion - is going to go have a beer and sit in his backyard instead.
Does wht it says
When i switched from PC to Mac, I had a lot of documents in MS Works format that were valuable to me. No problem with Word, Excel, and Power Point as they all open in their Mac counterparts. But what to do about Works? WPSConvert was the ticket! It converted ALL my Works files beautifully to Office formats that i could then open on my Mac and convert to Pages, Numbers, and Keynote formats. It made me realise my choice to move to Mac was a good one. 5 stars all the way!
There are several converters in the app store. I chose this one because it doesn’t just open the files, it 1. Converts them directly to .doc files, and 2. *with no loss of formatting.* None of the other converters I saw do either of these things.
I am a college writing instructor, and I do a lot of work online. Students submit files that I later open and print. No matter what I say about Save As and submitting .doc or .rtf, there are always some .wps files. Nothing on earth opened .wps files. Running after students to convert their files is a pain. Now I can just convert them myself!
