Editors' Review

+

Once upon a time, WordPerfect was more popular than today's reigning rival, Microsoft Office. It has long since lost that exalted role in the market, but WordPerfect remains a powerful competitor with all the features needed for typical office work plus a bit of extra oomph.

This version of the Corel suite comes with five separate applications. Along with the standard word processor WordPerfect, the spreadsheet-creating Quattro Pro, and Presentations--for multimedia presentations, natch--X4 comes with an e-mail client and a digital calendar. The basics up through power tools are well represented in each, so new users switching over should find much that is familiar. Spell-checkers and formula editing, and macros and document collaboration are all part of WordPerfect. We had no trouble opening or saving documents in Microsoft Office's format, and it includes a special interface and a section in the manual designed to simplify the switch from Microsoft's software. WordPerfect also supports the Open Document Format and more than 60 file types overall.

However, it doesn't just mimic the market leader, adding its own office suite innovations such as a tabbed interface and automatic converters to PDF and XML formats. Online services include storage, e-mail, and calendars, and it even comes with native character recognition for scans. Powerful and relatively inexpensive, WordPerfect is recommended for home and business users who want an alternative to Microsoft's dominant tools.

"WordPerfect Office X4 & X5 - BEST word process program"

January 23, 2011  |  By impeachthem

 |  Version: Corel WordPerfect Office X4

Pros

Understand my 5 stars are for WP X4. I urge all who can't stand MS Word to get the OEM version of either X4 or X5, which is very good and not much different than X4. The ease of editing, formatting -- all mechanics -- is a dream.

Cons

The only negative with Corel is the limited choice of symbols, which ought to be expanded to twice its size in the database.

Summary

If only Corel WordPerfect Office were more affordable. It is the finest word processing program ever, and I wish I could buy the premium program. So for us who are on the lower end of the money spectrum, the OEM version of WP are an excellent way to use the program. Everyone who tries Corel will never use MS Word again.

It is probably an excellent word processor suite, but I have no way of knowing.

February 03, 2009  |  By jabberwockgee

 |  Version: Corel WordPerfect Office X4

Pros

Don't care about the program. I've used it in the past, and it's not that great. Microsoft office is better.

Cons

Alan Ashton, the co-founder of this company, gave $1 million to support proposition 8.

"Excellent word processor"

December 26, 2008  |  By claudiaxl

 |  Version: Corel WordPerfect Office X4

Pros

The best word processor out there, easy to format and do great documents, for people jumping in from Word, wordperfect has a simulator to make it an easier learning curve

Cons

Did not like Quattro that much because is not as powerful as Excel, needs better VBA editor to make existing VBA macros that run on excel run also on Quattro

Summary

Excellent word processor the other components are very good too
