WordPerfect default templates store customization information for WordPerfect®. This file is particularly 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 various 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...)


WordPerfect X6, X7, X8, X9, 2020, 2021

The version number in WordPerfect X6 through X9 corresponds to 16 through 19 respectively. WordPerfect 2020 is version 20, 2021 is version 21.
