DO NOT SUBMIT YOUR WORK AS A .wps or .paper FILE.

NOTE: It does not work simply to type in the .rtf extension on an existing .wps file. You must load the original document and then resave it as a .rtf file type.

 

To save as a .rtf or .doc file . . .
(Apple's Pages application / iWork instructions below)

Load your original document

Re-save your work -- go to "File"

Then click on "Save As"

Then (usually as the bottom) it will say "Save as Type"

Click on that (on the \/ button to the right of where it says "Save as Type:"), then scroll up/down with the little "elevator" button on the righthand side and select "Rich Text Format" or ".rtf"

Type in file name, with whatever name you want to call it

use a name like "jdoe0013_case_study"

Then save it

Send that saved .rtf copy

Virtually anyone should be able to open and read a .RTF file.

If you need help with this please e-mail troufs@d.umn.edu
