Can't save RTF to open on Mac

    I am using a Windows genealogy program and having problems saving reports as RTFs. I am using Parallels 8 and Windows 7 Pro. The Mac and PC share all the same folder/directory structure. That being said, this is what happens:

    I can view a report within the genealogy program just fine. I can save it as every other format that is offered except RTF. When I choose the rtf option and to view this file after it is saved, the report opens in Word Pad, but is totally blank. If I choose NOT to view it then, but still save it as a rtf, when I try to open it on my Mac side, only the first line is seen correctly. The rest, sometimes only 3 or 4 lines even though the file size may be 1 MB for a large report, is total gibberish.

    Previously, when I used Windows XP from within Parallels 8, the reports saved correctly as rtf and can be viewed on either my Mac or PC side.

    Any help to figure this out would be appreciated.
