WordPerfect/Word Perfect X5- newspaper setting


I have just started using the newspaper option in wordperfect. I find that when I reopen my newspaper document it is missing half of what I typed. This has happened to me many times now, to the point that I am woried to use that setting, but I really enjoy it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

ANSWER: Need more info. What do you mean by the "newspaper option." Do you mean newspaper columns?

QUESTION: I open Word Perfect, then I have teh option of what mode, which I always pick Microsoft Word Mode ( for no particular reason), Then I got to start on the left hand column, I choose to start a new project, under creative projects and then choose Newspaper- which is preformatted and and has a cool look.
I get the feeling that it may max out at a certain amount of words or something changes with the formatting and I lose what I have wrote. I retyped from the spot it cut off at in mid sentence. I saved it and then reopened it and it was gone again. I have the feeling what I wrote is there but for some reason I can not see it. ???

ANSWER: I have never actually used that template. Tell me, what version of WP are you using and what operating system, XP, Vista, 7? Also, are you talking about a Newspaper template or the NewsLETTER one?

QUESTION: I am using Word Perfect X5 which i just upated as they suggested and my operating system is Windows 7. You are right I mean the newsLetter one.

OK, I have never used this template but I just did a test use of it and it was all fine. My best guess at fixing this is to go to CONTROL PANEL, choose UNINSTALL A PROGRAM, Word Perfect and choose the REPAIR option. Hope this works for you. If it doesn't, do a complete uninstall and re-install.
Good Luck
