I have been, for the past month, steaming about a WordPerfect problem. After I installed the printer drivers that didn't work, the text of my files stopped displaying; the text only displayed as little grey dots, not as actual characters. The characters were still there: I can see them when I do Reveal Codes. They can be copied, pasted.
Repairing the bugger didn't work. Reinstalling the bugger didn't work.
I'm damn near at the end of my geeky rope here, and about ready to tie a slip-knot in it.
