Apparently, the wpd suffix is critical.

It should have a better nose for magic.

It should open them just fine. Do you have a file that is not opening? Please, file a bug with the file attached.

It opens them as ascii junk. Is there a trick to triggering the conversion, specific suffix or ?

I recently had problems with a doc file created on a Mac (not really 100% sure anymore) and opened it after deleting the extension from the file name and got a better result in terms of layout as it should be.

Maybe you will give it a try without the file extension.
