Pros: In many cases, word processors generate errors due to their lack of compatibility with the regulations that must be applied to research documents. APA, Gost, ISO, Harvard standards, among others, come to complicate the completion of a work with more than 3000 thousand pages that include tables, graphics, images, appointments. Corel WordPerfect considers and shows the handling of this type of complications in a fluid way, in my experience I changed a month of text editing work for only two days.

The cost of the software is quite competitive with the rest of the similar programs, it will not be very popular, but it is undoubtedly an excellent tool.

Automatic management of margins for legal documents, Offers many options for focused texts such as stories, compatible with open writer and microsoft word, allows to export to pdf.

They offer a download of the product for a month of testing, the software allows the change of the options menu to better suit the user's style.

Sharepoint access to share products and allow simultaneous modification.

If you have several sheets defined for the printed document, you can work with the adjustment option to adapt the size and layout of the font and the space between the lines, so that it does not exceed the number of sheets established.

Cons:

the low popularity of corel products against the tools made by Microsoft is a point against WordPerfect, a finite universe of users appreciate it for the versatility it offers that places it above the performance shown by Office.

The cost of the product is accessible for a number of considerable machines, for an individual user it is a bit expensive, the tool is focused on satisfying the requirements of companies, leaving aside the home market

Overall:

The biggest benefit offered by WordPerfect is the elimination of errors in the heavier documents, which in opportunities can be lost in other tools for the same market.

in my experience WordPerfect helped me minimize work hours in the process of editing and controlling sequences of tables, images, figures, maps and other additional files of the printed work

Pros: Reveal Codes is the most incredible tool -- that Microsoft still does not get. I started in 1982 version 2.22, learning while hanging upside down to fix herniated discs. I would go into the office with new ideas, and implemented them. Novell made errors in their ownership, but Corel has brought the program back to life.

WP continues to overpower and provide clarity to document creation, editing and freedom to create what my law office needs. We write letters, contracts, memos, pleadings, briefs -- and the tools provided work without multiple overlays of styles. You have a flexible customizable interface, quick correct, quick words that allow for repeated documents or phrases -- to complex merge processing integrated with Time Matters. You can figure out and define all the details of a document, and the automatic outlining works! Headers, footers, watermarks, speed of editing, tables, path file name - are superb.

The macro language is second to none. We have changed Firm Name, location, email addresses and added or subtracted lawyers -- and we can do that to our entire database of documents in sequences that amaze other firms. I can take a user from zero to high performance more quickly than any other program in my office. We have some special templates and forms that work better than any other system I have seen.

This is the best word processing software.

Cons: The compare / redline feature is not as good as the Word track changes function. I would prefer a more robust Word conversion, back and forth with a table of substituted functions.

Pros: Wordperfect used to be the industry standard wordprocessor in the late 80s and during the 90s.

For some reason, MS Word achieved supremacy even though many of WordPerfect users considered it quite inferior and awkward in comparison.

It was, and still is, famous owing to its outstanding "reveal codes" feature that allows users to see the formatting codes embedded in documents and make necessary changes.

When you read other reviews, its clear that other user consider "reveal codes" to be an invaluable time-saving tool that enables them to solve difficult formatting problems quickly and easily.

How many times have you been confused in MS Word or in LibreOffice by formatting that suddenly becomes bold, or bulleted lists that don't follow a proper sequence? Such problems can often be exceedingly time consuming to resolve. But in WordPerfect, its quite simple: press Reveal Codes, find the offending codes, delete them or move them to the proper location, and the problem is solved.

WordPerfect has the amazingly useful "Make It Fit" feature that will help users fit a document onto fewer pages. This is useful when trying to create a two-page resume that is currently has 4 or 5 lines running onto a third page. In stead of painstakingly manual tweaking of the document formatting as you must do in MS Word, in WordPerfect, press "Make it Fit" and let the software fix it for you.

Cons: WordPerfect does not support Unicode and as such, cannot handle non-European languages such as Chinese or Japanese. I wrote to Corel years ago to ask them to implement this capability, but they clearly have not regarded it as a priority.

For many users who do need Unicode support such as myself, I now mainly rely on LibreOffice or KDE's office suite.

Overall: Outstanding writing tool that offers many features for students, researchers. Apparently is it used widely in law offices and in medical professions because of its outstanding editing capabilities.

Pros: WordPerfect has Reveal Codes. This is by far the best tool to help you apply the exact formatting that you want. It allows you to see exactly what formatting is in your document. It makes it easy to drag out any formatting codes that you dont want. I can get the reshlts I want in this program. WordPerfect also has a powerful macro language that helps you automate so many tasks, such as creating custom documents based on criteria that you can answers to queries built In to the macro. You can use programming logic such as IF-THEN, WHILE, FOR, FORNEXT, etc. WordPerfect also has a very powerful merge feature that allows you to merge data into letters, envelopes, and other documents from data files.

Cons: Over the years WordPerfect has leaned towards adopting features from its competitor, which has been pretty annoying to long time WP users.

Overall: Overall, WP is far superior to its biggest competitor. I have used it since 1988 (version 4.0) and still use and prefer it as my go-to word processor. The suite also includes Quattro Pro spreadsheet and Presentations slide show and graphics software. It can import and export files to many other formats for compatibility. I have written several books and published them to PDF right from WordPerfect. I love this software.

Pros: This is what I like MOST about WordPerfect software. It is compatible with any and all of their previous versions. No need to update or convert older documents when you move from one computer to another with different OS's. WordPerfect made this compatibility promise years ago, and they have stuck to it. I first heard of it over 20 years ago, and it still works on ALL their software products. By the way, their software is easy to use. It's easy to memorize key stroke codes, and again, all of them work similarly through all of their products. They're the best!

Cons: They don't offer as much variety as other brands, and they're not as popular in the market place, but once you decide you like them, you will be loyal for life.

Overall: It has been very simple and easy to use. Key stroke shortcuts seem to carry over from some of the word software from year (I mean YEARS) ago. It's very easy to use, especially if you're just starting out using office software.

Pros: WordPerfect is the easiest word processor to learn, to fix errors in, to make formatting changes in, and to make outlines and bullets in. I also use Word, and every time I do, I am reminded of what an inferior product Word is. We do a lot of legal documents with cross-referencing and outlines, and it is so much easier for me to fix those items when something breaks in WordPerfect than in Word that it isn't funny. Also, I can open Word documents in WordPerfect with no problem, and save documents into usable Word files with no problem, while Word doesn't want to let me open WordPerfect files.

Cons: That Word has managed to become the default just because Microsoft is the 800-pound gorilla of software.

Overall: It makes me so much more productive than I am with competing word processors.

Pros: Corel keeps the programs moving forward with updates every couple of years. Ease of use, much better functionality versus Word and other Microsoft Office Programs. Appreciative Corel has not gone to annual payment services.

Cons: Does not have an Android App/Program. All our files are saved in Wordperfect format. We cannot access via phone or tablet unless converted at the office to PDF files.

Overall: Long time Wordperfect user since the DOS days in the 90's. Much easier to use versus Word and more things can be done with the program versus the competitor. The other programs in the Corel Office program are compatible converting Microsoft programs/files. Would like to keep using but Corel needs to get mobil program compatible with Android/Apple. This has become very limiting while working in the field.

Pros: What I like most about WordPerfect is that it's a staple for law practices everywhere. Although some would say it's older and outdated for modern word processing, I would argue that it's in some ways better than Microsoft Word in that it's simplistic and provides the user more freedom to setup documents how they want it.

Cons: What I like least is that this software is a bit dated. It's still useful, however, it doesn't work well on Macs which our office is currently running on. You need to have a PC to run WordPerfect to its fullest.

Overall: Overall, I've used this program since I could start using a computer. It's remained a great alternative for Microsoft Word. To this day, our law office uses both WordPerfect and Word.

Pros: I absolutely require the "reveal codes" view, so I can make changes. Microsoft does not have this feature and so after many changes, very strange bugs get into the file that cause unpredictable behaviors and lots of bloat. that is my main reason for sticking with it for decades. Plus I have a bias against microsoft. I use it with Dragon Naturally Speaking, very good experience.

Cons: Sometimes a copy and paste of a formatted page from another source works better in Word than in Word Perfect.

Overall: Medical dictation. Do it all day every day.

Pros: A biggie...you can look behind the curtain. You can reveal the codes and more accurately perfect your document. It has a great search program to find something in current and past files. Also, I've written dozens of macros -- and used some of Corel's -- and assigned them to various keystrokes. I've been using WordPerfect for writing and editing and publishing for more than 30 years. Support is attentive past a year.

Cons: It used to have a better thesaurus. I used to be able to colorize the background; I can't now.

Pros: WordPerfect is a great word processing program

Opens and saves Microsoft Word formatted documents natively.

Reveal Codes feature is a life saver that is unknown in other applications

Presentations is a useful offset to Powerpoint

Cons: Spreadsheet program is not very useful

Overall graphics support in WordPerfect is good, but complex highly formatted documents may freeze or exhibit random rendering artifacts.

Overall: We have used this software for years and each version gets a bit more capable while still being backward compatible with earlier documents.

Pros: Work Perfect is easy to use and learn. It allows our office to alter and change document formats for the correct application. Easy to copy text and add it to a current Word Perfect document.

Cons: Almost too many features. If I am unable to use a certain feature, I generally use youtube to help teach me the features that I am unfamiliar with. Other than that, no cons.

Overall: Our office uses this program almost daily. The heart and sole of our legal correspondences. Love it!

Pros: I am not a fan of WordPerfect; I much prefer Word. However, some of my colleagues insist that they prefer WordPerfect. They like that the program shows the codes at the bottom of the screen, so that you have a line of code to review when the program starts doing something strange with formatting, etc. With Microsoft Word, it is often a mystery why strange formatting is being applied; at least with WordPerfect, the code at the bottom gives the user a clue (and the offending part of the code can simply be deleted to fix the issue).

Cons: Sometimes, when I type something and then click elsewhere on the page, the program interprets this as a command to delete what I've just written. This is beyond frustrating. Also, since everyone uses Word, it can be annoying to send WordPerfect documents to others via email; this process usually involves converting the documents to PDF to ensure they send correctly.

Pros: Reveal Code function. It lets you easily correct formating errors. It also allows you to find and replace formatting codes. It imports, edits and exports PDF files. It has a "Make it fit" feature which formats a document into the number of pages you want.

Overall: It is easy to use and powerful. I usually create documents on WordPerfect and export them to Word if I need a Word document. It is much easier to create a document on WordPerfect than it is on Word.

Pros: 25 years ago I liked that WP kept improving their engine and add-ons. They ran flawlessly.

Cons: WP is no longer smooth as it was and I sense no efforts to improve dwindling performance. They advertise the "Improved" WP upgrades but dont list a single improvement, because there arent' any.

Overall: I'm a professional engineer and have used WordPerfect/QuatroPro since 1991. I have depended on these products to create masterful documents with complex computational tables which have greatly simplified my work. 20 years ago WordPerfect made frequent improvements in their product.

I've stopped using these products because they constantly crash, are arduous to get WP Tables to work well. It now takes much longer due to program glitches and frequent lockups, to get tables to work as they did before. I swore I'd never move to Word and Excel, but I've had to in order to get better performance then WP/QP. I'm done with Corel altogether.

Pros: Reveal codes. Makes it so much easier to find errors and fix them. You can easily locate the issue and change it just by looking through the reveal codes

Cons: compatibility, does not transition well with windows. I think that windows makes it incompatible with it because it wants you to use microsoft

Overall: best properties for making labels, much easier than word

I have used WordPerfect since the first version many years ago.

Pros: Word perfect is awful similar to Microsoft word. What separates it most in my opinion is it's layout and it's price. The price is sometimes 80% cheaper. I've purchased 5 licenses for the cost of just one Microsoft office product.

Cons: The layout can be tough to navigate if your already familiar with Microsoft word. Although this will easily be overcome with a tutorial

I have used this software since college and have been happy with its ease of use and functionality.

Pros: Something that wordperfect has on it's favor compared to microsoft word is how significantly cheaper it is compared to it, and for someone who is constantly writing repetitive documents I can really see the appeal since quick words will make your life easier

Cons: I don't see wordperfect as a replacement for word, it has fewer capabilities than microsoft software and if you are already running office then it is not worth it on getting this license.

Overall: If someone is on a tight budget and cant afford an office license, and that is in charge of writing repetitive documents then wordperfect might be the perfect software for you, otherwise I would definetly stick with word.

Pros: Wordperfect is a really handy software, I have used it while writing papers and medical journals, since you have to be really accurate with the word counts and this software helps a lot while counting them without having to rely on clicking several options such as word.

Cons: In spite of the word count option, word is just superior in my opinion, it has so many functions that wordperfect lacks, also there are some issues with the fonts that can really mess up your work.

Overall: It really depends on what you will be using it for, it has to be something really specialized since word already offers the same and it comes in the office package.

It was one of the text processors I used and it has been very practical.

Pros: Word perfect is a good alternative to microsoft word since it is cheaper, it has quick words and prediction which is always a good help when writing repetitive documents and is way more customizable than word.

Cons: It is an extra money your business has to pay for functions that probably you can handle with microsoft word, which is a program that almost every company has.

Overall: If you can't afford microsoft word then by all means wordperfect office is a really solid option, beware that you may have some problems when opening documents created with wordperfect on microsoft word.

Why would you use this over word.

Pros: The best part of this is that many attorneys use this software and sending text documents back and forth is easy but the software is nothing compared to word.

Overall: every text document we use is through word perfect
