Now I want to switch from LibreOffice (for several reasons) to WordPerfect Office. As the latter does not understand .ods, I'd need to convert my .ods files into another format. My problem is that I use conditional formatting in some of them, and it would be quite an effort to restore it "from scratch". When I export to .xlsx, it is completely lost. Is there a way to keep these formats when saving in another format than .ods?

for document with software that doesn't support OpenDocument Formats, it is best to use the binary Microsoft Office formats - those have years of history whereas the xml-based Microsoft formats are rather new and hence is not on par with the older formats yet.
Of course it also depends on what the other software package supports...

Well unfortunately features like that are less used and therefore less tested and receive less attention from devs.
What import features WordPerfect offer to import? If it's paid software, you should ask them for support. Say you have a ODS with conditional formatting you wanna import, that it doesn't support ods, so how can you move those formattings to a file format their software supports. If they answer it's not possible, well... ODS is OpenSource and it's just a matter of their well paid devs do some work.
