Which formats specifically?

Which formats specifically? The best format for document exchange is RTF. If you tried exporting as RTF and WordPerfect failed to open the file, AbiWord's emitted RTF may be buggy (or there's an import bug with WordPerfect, but that seems less likely). If you think this is the case, please file a bug at http://bugzilla.abisource.com/. Thanks.

WordPerfect problem

If you saved to txt in AbiWord and WordPerfect couldn't open it, then something is wrong with your copy of WordPerfect.

AbiWord itself

Have you tried a local install of AbiWord? Does it have the same issue? If so, you're out of luck.

WordPerfect <--> AbiWord file reading works

I use AbiWord 2.4.4 for all sorts of word processing and then save each file in AbiWord .abw, in addition to other multiple formats which include WordPerfect .wpd & .wp, RichTextFormat (for old apps) .rtf, and DOS text .txt. AbiWord 2.4.4 reads all of these formats. WordPerfect, on the other hand, reads and writes .wp and wpd, of course, as well as .txt and .rtf. So, given those capacities, AbiWord will work with WordPerfect, and vice versa.

Best Regards,

See if Notepad will open

See if Notepad will open text files. If it will, Wordperfect is messed up.
