moving dos WP between MAC and dos disk i

I have used the AFE utility program to translate my microsoft word version
4 files saved in the RFT format to DOS DCA format in order to convert the
file to IBM Word Perfect version 5. As in your case, all my formating was
lost. I have no ideas for your problem but join you in wishing that Apple
fixes the bug.

MacLink by Dataviz will do what you want.  It supports up to WP 5.0.
We've used it for a couple of years with good luck; we have both Mac
users (mostly Word) and PC users (mostly WP) in this department, and we
share a lot of files.

I would like to know if possible for DisplayWrite 4 files or DisplayWrite 4
version 2 files to be converted to Macintosh format?

I am looking at MacLink/Translator (the MacLinkPlus package less cables) and
would like to know if anyone have experiences with this product.

1. moving dos WP between MAC and dos disk in mac

I am posting this for a friend of mine...
He has a 2x and needs to convert from Wordperfect on a dos diskette
to MAC Word (or WP) - and back again.  He says that Apple FIle
Exchange removes his formating etc, and so we just need a way to
get the file from the MAC to the DOS diskette - a straight copy
similar to the way TOPS will copy between the two. (Why isn't there
a 'copy' button in AFE along with the 'translate' button?)
If apple would only release 6.0.4 with a fix so that the finder
would recognize the dos diskette...
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated...
