HASH(0x9c8bb714) out of 5 stars Solid Choice but not perfect in translation July 22 2010
By David Elesh - Published on Amazon.com

If you are upgrading from WPX4, this is a nobrainer if you have to share any files with Word or Excel users. As Microsoft changes its file structures, WP users eventually have to upgrade to maintain full compatibility with the file structures (but see below). If you work with other people who use Word or some other wordprocessing program and they are producing something other than straight text, WP is about the only way to edit their work that enables one to deal with formatting issues. We WP users have reveal codes and correcting formatting problems is far easier than in Word. On the other hand, WP still does not produce an error-free Word file when saving to Word. For example, I have a macro which writes Page ( ) in the upper right of every page--page number in the parenthesis--but suppresses it for the first page. When I save the paginated document to Word, the page numbers are either entirely missing or contain a blank on the second page.

I use Quattro Pro and Excel and have had no problems going back and forth between them.

I do not use Presentations or Paradox.

HASH(0x9c8bb93c) out of 5 stars WordPerfect Office delivers!! Aug. 23 2010
By courtdoc - Published on Amazon.com
Brain-washed that everyone uses Microsoft Word, so thinking you have to do the same? NO!! Corel's WordPerfect has, for over 20 years, offered a superior, more-user-friendly, more flexible, and more featured word processing program. Major corporations, universities, and government branches think it's the better way to go and this latest version maintains the quality.

But, it you absolutely have to work in Microsoft Word, then relax, knowing that Wordperfect can import from and export to Word formats, as well as from and to .pdf and many other formats. With Reveal Codes, you can see where the formatting commands have been embedded, making for easier editing when sharing files.

WordPerfect Office matches the original word processor with presentation, data management, and e-mail programs that are also easy to use and fully functional.

All in all, try WordPerfect Office x5 and you will be pleased to see how a truly spectacular office suite should work.

HASH(0x9c8bba20) out of 5 stars WordPerfect continues production of excellent product Aug. 31 2010

Though many have written off WordPerfect, I am not one of them. Corel's continued dedication to maintaining an excellent product is clearly reflected in WordPerfect X5. The added features including enhanced PDF printing and conversion make the newest version of Wordperfect a pleasure to use. This is a great word processor and is, in my view, far superior to MS Word. I could not be happier with Wordperfect X5.

HASH(0x9c8bbed0) out of 5 stars WordPerfect Lives! Dec 6 2010
By Paul D. - Published on Amazon.com

Before Google, Microsoft ruled the computer world. Their Office is a standard of sorts. WordPerfect was once the equal of Word, but it fell far behind. This version, X5, aims to catch up. It views PDF files, Word files, almost any text document. It also has Borland's old spreadsheet Quattro Pro and Presentations- a good slide show maker. It can save anything you make in a Microsoft format (doc, xls, etc.).
But it does none of these things perfectly. PDF files are sometimes distorted. Word text copies well but tables and images can go wrong.
What WordPerfect offers is WordPerfect- the best, most flexible and easy to use word processor ever sold. Change fonts - no problem, change them six different ways. Make your own taskbar- easy- choose everything from a set of lists. Has great easy tools like QuickCorrect which not only fixes errors, but will type in anything you want, even a whole paragraph, if you just type the key text you choose. Make-it-fit automatically cuts documents pages shorter, arranging fonts, borders, spaces to fit the size you choose. Reveal codes lets you easily take out trailing pages, remove graphics, do things with ease that are near impossible in Word. Print labels? Easy with Merge- hell in Word. If you want to do something a word processor can or ought to be able to do, then it's easy with WordPerfect. If you buy it and something is difficult, look online because you're doing it wrong. Everything is easy.

I look forward to trying each new program included in WordPerfect Office X5. I am an old time user of WP. I began back in the days of DOS. The program was easy to install and is easy to use.
