How to open UWL filesFebruary 21, 2019 at 1:48 amParticipants 0Replies 1Last Activity 3 years, 7 months ago
We are in the process of migrating to Oxygen Author and will like to migrate the user word lists created by users over the years, in order to do that we need to access the UWL files. I have a tried multiple applications with no luck to open these files. The workaround which is very time consuming would be to open the spell checker in XMetal and copy each ignored word to a text editor one by one. Please suggest a better way of doing this.
Thanks in advance.Derek Read March 5, 2019 at 12:03 am

This spell checking system and its file formats were integrated into the XMetaL product line when we were still part of Corel (around 2002/3). Unfortunately, there are some legalities (part of the deal when BlastRadius obtained XMetaL from Corel) that prevent JustSystems (who obtained XMetaL from BlastRadius) from releasing information about the spell checking system or providing additional tools that can work with it.
You might have some luck if you are able to track down an older copy of Corel's WordPerfect.
