Documents to Go and RTF

What was the last version of Documents to Go that supported RTF.

I have some older versions here and I'm thinking about goint back to one that supports RTF.

Version 8 is the last version to support RTF.

Still available for purchase: http://www.dataviz.com/purchase/buy...g_order_v8.html

Thanks, I've got versions 3, 4, 5, 8 & 9 here. I just couldn't remember when RTF dropped out. Currently using 9.

I won't get into all the details; but, I need a format that I can open on the Palm and open on a machine that doesn't have MSOffice. I could sort of understand their dropping some of the other not-so-popular formats but dropping RTF is short-sighted.

I think I'll go back to 8 and RTF and I'll stick there for a while.

You do know that most WP programs out there can read/save to Word, right? Even Mac's Pages program...

Your best bet is to 'Save As... Word 97/2000/XP' as Office 2007's format is considerably less supported. Then again, if I'm creating a doc to send to someone and I really have no idea what their WP program is, I guess RTF is a safe bet, though I'm more likely to convert it to PDF first.

Some places I go have no word processor compatible with MS Word and I would like to be able to view my notes without getting out my laptop. Some places I would also like to be able to print them on whatever computer is in front of me at the time without having to worry with keeping my files is two formats and updating two formats every time I change a file.

RTF solves all those problems if I can just get this darned thing to see RTF without having to go through that darned conduit.

DTG doesn't recognize RTF natively. It has to go through the conduit. I assume this is why support was dropped, as the RTF had to be processed by the conduit and turned into the WordToGo format on the device.

The only software that supports RTF natively on Palm OS is MobiSystem's OfficeSuite.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Thanks, I'll look into that.

I know so little about those inner workings of the thing. Thanks again.

bh77a,

I installed MobiSystem's OfficeSuite and I began to look it over. I'm seeing so far that MobiSystem's OfficeSuite offers more of what I need.

It looks like to me MobiSystem's OfficeSuite is underadvertised because I never heard of it until today, and so far, it looks like a better product than Documents to Go. This reminds me once again you don't need the better product to sell the most, only the better marketing system.

Microsoft and McDonald's have proven that over and over and over.

Any caveats or 'gotchas' you know of?

MobiSystem's office suite works great, I've not had any problems with it. I like the fact that it handles more formats, and has more zooming options
