Wordperfect Files Not Indexing

Postby mfrankel » Tue Sep 11, 2012 8:36 am

This is a new installation. Everything is indexing fine except my wordperfect files. How do you fix that?

You may have to add your .wpd (I assume) files to X1's set of specified file types.

>>Tools
>>Options
>>Indexing
>>Select Files to Scan

Then look for any WordPerfect files and add the WPD files, if you use that as an extension.
MK
X1 Search 8.6.1 - Build 6003fa (64-bit)
Windows 10 Pro 64-bit | Windows 10 Home 32-bit
No, I have nothing to do with X1, just a user since 2004.

Also, it's possible that X1 is already indexing your WordPerfect files, but that they just aren't being displayed when using the Documents search tab; however, this can be modified.

Because the Documents search tab is simply a saved search it can be easily modified if it doesn't already include the files that you "do" want to see. For example, to modify the "Documents" search tab to include WordPerfect files (.WPD files for example), you would change the search as follows:

1. Click on the "Documents" search tab
2. Click on Edit > Clear to remove any previous search criteria
3. Modify the contents of the "Type" column:

FROM:
doc= OR docx= OR xls= OR xlsx= OR ppt= OR pptx= OR vsd= OR pdf= OR odt= OR sxw= OR ods= OR sxc= OR odp= OR sxi= OR xlsm=

TO:
doc= OR docx= OR xls= OR xlsx= OR ppt= OR pptx= OR vsd= OR pdf= OR odt= OR sxw= OR ods= OR sxc= OR odp= OR sxi= OR xlsm= OR wpd=

Feel free to add or remove other file extensions as you see fit. Also, make sure the word OR is in uppercase.

4. Last, click on File > Save. Now, when you click on the Documents search, you will be including WordPerfect files in your search results.
