I have been using LibreOffice/OpenOffice and this has been a difficult transition. I like the WordPerfect, having had used it when it required a keyboard overlay; however, it's been a long time since I used it and I'm not used to the control it gives the user over LibreOffice and Microsoft Office.
This single biggest complaint I have with this product is that it is marginally compatible with Microsoft Office, which everybody seems to use. For example, I have several forms created in MS .doc format and have tried to work on them through WordPerfect; however, every single time I open the document, the formatting has changed. In one instance, I sent a form to one of my clients and the bullet list had changed to money signs. That's highly unacceptable and sent the wrong message.
I've since recreated the form in WordPerfect's proprietary format, .wpd, and it looks fine. I'll most likely have to either convert it to PDF and hope that the client doesn't need to make changes, or work with it on LibreOffice.
This would be an easy decision if all software worked well together; but, they don't. I've had to keep LibreOffice installed to work with the .doc and .docx files; this has lead me to question why I have both of them installed. I have been dealing with LibreOffice's shortcomings for awhile and I can, at the very least, work on the MS-formatted documents and know that they will work, most of the time.
The rest of the office suite is working well and I have not had a problem with Quattro Pro at all.
I have been successful, via using another part of the programme, to be able opening the word-perfect, word-processing programme, which was the major reason for changing to Corel WordPerfect.
As most people would be aware you can no longer purchase Microsoft Office you have to rent the programme, there is little assistance with eliminating errors in Microsoft Office Outlook programme that has regularly ceased to open, also the problem wipes you Addresses. One one occasion Microsoft technicians had control of my computer whilst they tried to remedy the problem. A fortnight later the programme again crashed deleting all my contacts. Fortunately I had copied my contacts to an Excel
I am very pleased with the assistance of Corel technicians trying to solve the problem, the other programmes within Corel Office all work without a problem, since I used the download provided by Corel. I cannot fault the endeavours of the Corel technicians who are trying to solve this minor problem. I have no doubt that the people assisting me, will continue to assist, and they will be successful.
Even with this problem I will rate Corel Office 8 ahead of Microsoft Office.
