" Converting CD5 to CD7 without losing paragraph text"
->upgraded to Corel ver 7 and I've run into a problem. When I open a CD5 file

->but the paragraph text doesn't come through at all. The text box is there,

->Has anybody else run into this? And if so, is there a way to solve this
This sounds similiar to something I've experienced opening CD3 files with
CD5 ... and it's always paragraph text that has been the problem ....
Somehow CD3 and CD5 aren't in full agreement with each other in how they
fit paragraph text of a given size in a given size of frame, and I suspect
that your problem is of a similar nature.
Whenever this happened, I was always able to see and edit the "missing"
text via Alt-T, X, even though the text frame remained "blank".
The solution for me was to simply increase the size of the text frame,
which would make the text visible again.
It was also possible to Alt-T, X, then highlight the text and reduce the
font size, which would also solve the problem for me
I prefered to stick with stretching the text frame as it was quicker and
