Like rebooting your PC, sometimes when things get flaky, you need to remove problems by starting from scratch. Here are three techniques for WordPerfect for Windows that will help you reset WordPerfect features:
Check the location and name of your default template as follows:
To reset, simply delete or, more safely, rename this file. What you will lose: any customizations you have made to menus, toolbars, styles, keystroke assignments, template macros, or QuickWords.
First, in WP10, try a simple button: Go to the File menu and choose Page Setup. Then click on the button named Restore, in the middle, near the top. This will reset paper sizes for the Standard page types or Printer page types, whichever is selected to it's left.
In WP9, go to File, Page Setup, then click the Options button at bottom right to select Regenerate, then choose All Sizes From Printer.
If that doesn't work, edit the Windows Registry where many system details are stored. Hit the Windows START button and select Run. Type REGEDIT and press Enter. In the upper left quadrant, carefully click on the plus (+) symbol to the left of each of the following:
+ HKEY_CURRENT_USER + Software + Corel
Now click once to select (highlight) the following, depending on your WordPerfect version:
- PrintEngine in WP 10
- PerfectPrint in WP 8 or 9
... and delete it by pressing the DELete key on your keyboard and answer Yes to confirm deletion.
All paper size/type codes have now been reset to the default forms (they will be recreated upon restarting WordPerfect).
