If you need to convert an existing PERRLA Research Paper for use with the new PERRLA Add-in, it's an easy process and only takes a few steps.
At this time, you can only convert Research Papers from PERRLA for Word. We can't convert Discussion Posts or papers downloaded from PERRLA Online (yet).
It's also important to note that the conversion process doesn't affect the original paper at all. PERRLA makes a new, converted copy of the paper – leaving the existing one the exact same.
Here's how to convert your paper using the new PERRLA Add-in:
- In the PERRLA tab, click Create New Paper
- Select Other
- Click Convert Legacy Paper
This will open a web browser where you can upload & convert your paper.
- Select Choose File and select the paper
- Click Convert selected paper
That's all there is to it.
We'll take the uploaded version of your paper, convert it for the new Add-in, and then download the new version back to your computer.
Once it's downloaded, you can move it wherever you'd like, and you'll be able to use all of the PERRLA functionality in the PERRLA ribbon tab inside of Word.
