Mac Users Can Easily Open and Use Word 2007 Docx Documents Now

Panergy's docXConverter Is the First Software That Enables Mac Programs to Be Compatible With the New Word 2007 Format

RAMAT HASHARON, ISRAEL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 20, 2006 --Mac users can easily open and use documents saved in the new Word 2007 docx format, thanks to the docXConverter from Panergy Ltd. The first software of its kind, docXConverter is available now.

Some Mac and Windows programs are not able to read the new docx default file format that was introduced in the new Word 2007 (November 30). However, docXConverter allows users of Mac OS X 10.2 to 10.4 to open a docx document and continue working with it exactly as if they had received a traditional Word (doc) document.

"It is highly likely that Mac users will soon start receiving 'docx' files created on Windows," explained Mickey Sonnenschein, Panergy's vice president of marketing. "With this software, Mac users will not notice any difference between working on a 'docx' or a 'doc' document, even without upgrading any programs."

How it Works

docXConverter reads the docx file, converts it to a format easily read by the programs on the computer, and directs one of the computer's programs to open the converted file. All these operations are done seamlessly and in the background. Set-up is automatic and completed in seconds. The settings can be configured to meet particular needs.

In addition to users of Microsoft Word on Mac, docXConverter is helpful for users of non-Office programs such as word processors, desktop publishing, graphics and email programs who need to be compatible with the new Word 2007.

Availability and Pricing

The docXConverter software, which costs US$19.95, is available now.

Multiple license versions of Office 2007 are now available; general availability is scheduled for January 30, 2007.
