I used to love WordPerfect, but is it the Betamax of word processors?
I have spent a large portion of the day trying to correct formatting issues with the ebook version of Badgerman & Bogwitch. The problem has arisen because I imported the original 1992 WordPerfect file into MSWord, then imported it into Scrivener so I could export it as an Amazon .mobi file format. I have been left with a number of unwanted indents and hard return paragraph anomalies.
I have been going through the Scrivener document line by line, adding and deleting hard returns as necessary. It has driven me slightly mad.
There is no problem with formatting for ebooks if you write straight into Scrivener, as I have been doing for the past three years.
WordPerfect has turned out to be the Betamax of Word processors! :(
