I absolutely LOVE reveal codes. Nothing Word can do can make up for not having reveal codes. You can instantly see your settings and easily adjust any formatting.
The main reason to use Word is because everyone else uses it. The main reason to use WordPerfect is that it is the best word processor out there.
A few notes on WPX7:
I installed it on a Win7 laptop. It took about five minutes to run the installation. I only installed WP and Lightning, not the spreadsheet and presentation programs, so it would take longer if you installed all of them. Everything worked immediately--no problems, no crashes, nothing.
The installation program will ask if you want to move settings from a previous WP installation to the new version and if you want to delete the old installation. It makes life easy when you upgrade.
The programs may be installed on up to three PCs.
The Home & Student version is a stripped-down version. It does not include a few features found in the Standard and Professional versions, such as the ability to edit PDFs, ebook creation software and disk burning software. It also does not include the Paradox database program that is only available in the Pro version.
I have been a huge WP fan for years, and this new version will keep our relationship going for a long time to come.
Corel WordPerfect Suite 8
WordPerfect 6.0 for Windows
The program is very stable Corel has not added significantly new features since 1999. This makes Wordperfect 17/X7 the ninth "service pack" of Wordperfect 8 and the eleventh patch since WP 6. Corel has done almost nothing to keep this product up to date with the current needs of offices around the world. Naturally, this means that this is a very stable, well-tested application. This version of Wordperfect allows you to export a file as a PDF document but has no other features for PDF use. It cannot even produce an ebook unless you convert your file to HTML and, from there, convert it to MOBI or epub. I guess you get what you pay for. If you are not very wealthy, you will have to settle for this bare-bones version. I am very glad I bought this.
Other editions of WordPerfect (standard, legal and Professional)have their own problems (or interesting characteristics). WordPerfect's "legal edition" is similar MS Word, legal edition plus the free legal templates from the Microsoft website. Mind you, I really don't like digging through the mountains of templates on the Office website. I like the pleading expert in the Standard and Professional editions of this software.
Here are some "free," "kind of compatible" applications. You get what you pay for.
Openoffice and Libreoffice
Apache OpenOffice 4.0.1 [Open Source Download]
LibreOffice v4.3 for PC [Open Source Download]
are both free and yet have more PDF features (import, export) than this edition of WP Office.
Still, I feel strangely attracted to this simple, reliable program. Somehow, it just feels right! The menu system (though ancient-looking compared Word's ribbon interface) is comfortable and well organized. Much can be accomplished with keybindings and macros written with "PerfectScript." If you remember the keybindings from the early versions of Wordperfect, you be glad to see that they are still here.
The much hailed "reveal codes" has been superseded by Word's "reveal formatting" feature and is no longer a selling point. Religious arguments aside, Wordperfect relies on the faithfulness of long-time users rather than attracting newcomers who might breathe life into Corel as well as this office suite.
The secondary program in this Suite is the legendary Quattro Pro 17 (also the ninth service pack of Quattro Pro 8, released in 1998). I feel it is a very serviceable, though basic, spreadsheet. Corel inherited the program from Borland and it has never caught the attention and love that Wordperfect has
Another significant element of this office suite is WordPerfect Lightning--essentially a spinoff of Microsoft's OneNote. It is a note-taking and file sorting application that helps the user organize all of his/her documents and files (adding notes and classifications if desired).
Quattro Pro is a former product of the Borland Company meant to compete with IBM's release of Lotus 1-2-3 3.0 in 1989. At the time, it was slightly superior to 1-2-3, but with the sale to Corel in 1994, it has remained very stable (as in unchanged and undeveloped) and only gets occasional patches from Corel. It has changed little since the 1990's.
Quattro pro has moderate support for computing linear matrix transformations (i.e. computing a Fourier transform and other linear algebra applications for scientists and engineers)). This is one of the things that Quattro has over Excel. On the other hand, Excel has forged ahead with new features while Corel has maintained the original features of Borland's original Quattro Pro
Quattro Pro version 5.0 for Windows 3.1.
Be careful with this purchase if you depend on Excel compatibility for your employment or work-related applications.
These (version 17) programs have "improved" compatibility with MS Office but are still not perfectly compatible. It helps to be familiar with these programs.
However, being "kind of compatible" with MS Office will not please many employers and could reduce your chances of getting a job where computer skills are required. Do check out LibreOffice and consider it as a helper program for WordPerfect and Quattro. Since Wordperfect does not feature an email or scheduling program, please consider using the free-to-download Mozilla Thunderbird. I know, this is a great handicap but it is fixable and is a fairly decent imitation of Outlook and other PIM applications.
I love this program and probably always will but its relevance as a competitive office product seems to diminish with every new version. WordPerfect 8 was fantastic. This point release is only slightly better after 9 new versions. It should be called "WordPerfect 8.9" because that it is truly the 9th revision of the excellent WordPerfect 8.
Corel needs more users so the program can be improved and developed. I recommend this program to newcomers if only to get some cash flow into Corel so they will continue to make it and support it with updates. Highly recommended. Have fun!
