Panergy Software has released “docXConverter” which promises to convert .docx files from Microsoft’s Office 2007. docXConverter reads the original docx file and converts it to RTF format; it then transmits this RTF file to a desired application with which you will be able to view the content and shape of the original file and continue working with the document.
According to Panergy, with docXConverter there is nothing lost in the conversion and nothing new to learn. Just double-click on the file and let docXConverter do the rest.
docXConverter runs on Mac OS X version 10.2 to 10.4.x. A free trial version (30-days or 20 conversions, full version) is available and a license costs US$19.95.
