Where are the WordPerfect® default templates?

WordPerfect default templates store customization information for WordPerfect®. This file is very important to WordPerfect and your WordPerfect settings. Depending on which version of WordPerfect you have and under what operating system you are running, this file may be in different locations.

This document assumes that your default writing tools language is English US. If your writing tools language is different, the naming convention for the default template is as follows:

WP##$$.WPT, where ## is the version number (9,10 or 11) and $$ is the default writing tools language (US,UK,FR,CE, etc...)
