Subject:Re: Word 6 filters for Frame 4? From:PJ Rose <PJRose -at- EWORLD -dot- COM> Date:Thu, 29 Dec 1994 20:58:30 PST
In response to Tom Hoyt's original question:

And to Sue Gappagher's response:

>finds 'em, please let me know too!
*Word for Word 6.0* from Mastersoft handles biderctional FrameMaker 4.0 MIF
and Word 6 conversion, as well as conversions to just about anything else you
can think of. I've been using it for a few months now, and I love it. I
believe that Word for Word is also available for Windows.
BTW, there is no distinction for Word 6 for Mac or Windows, as far as the
Word for Word conversion is concerned. I'm not particularly fond of Word 6,
and have spent a considerable amount of time trying to do things in it that I
used to be able to do in Word 5.1 with ease. I've been told that version 6 is
now identical for Mac and Windows. (Thank you, Microsoft......sigh!)
