Please List Members, do not get mad at me, I am not criticizing, but quite
often I see posts like this that ask some specific technical software
and/or hardware questions that I have no way of answering. I think many on
this list might also be at a loss to help with these types of questions. Is
this list designed to provide support for software and hardware, or
Technical Writing Information? I may be out of line, as I am a new

Suppose I asked this question: I have a Kenworks Dot Matrix Printer, and
the output saves files as a KWD file. when I try to import the file to
WordPerfect for DOS, I get part of the file cut off. How can I do this? Can
I export the file back to a format that my Kenworks Dot Matrix Printer will
recognize, without converting the file?

This question is esoteric and I do not think many of you want to read it.
There are dozens of word processing, graphics and other programs that
people use, as well as lots of hardware options. Can't the vendors help?

Again, I do not want to offend, but there has to be a better way to find
out the answers to these types of questions. Personally, I do not think
this list is one of those places. Am I wrong about this?

Warm Regards and Cheers,
