Hopefully this document should help those who are trying to convert Ensigns to Plucker using JPluck X. This assumes that you have used Plucker & JPluck before and both are installed on your computer. I used M$ Internet Explorer v6 on Windows XP for the example screenshots. The example below shows how to convert the November 2003 (Conference Report) issue.
