WordPerfect itself is (IMHO) the best word processor available. Much easier to use (and I think, more intuitive) than Word. It can do things that Word struggles to do. That said, most of the world uses Word and improvements to the interchange functionality would allow it to be used in more situations. I realize that isn't easy - internally, the two products work differently and use very different data models

Pros
Open Source
  • Notepad++ allows us to keep open files in tabs. Like in a web browser, these tabs let us access these files quickly and easily. Furthermore, even if we forget to save the files when closing the program or shutting down the PC, Notepad++ retains them in the open tabs when we reopen it.
  • Notepad++ supports many different file types. We usually save our files created in Notepad as normal text files, but sometimes as JSON, PHP, and HTML files.
  • Notepad++ is lightweight and requires little resources. Using it is snappy and responsive.
  • The developer of Notepad++ frequently updates the software with bug fixes, performance improvements and new features.

  • Built-in publishing to PDF, that supports hyperlinks and watermarks.
  • Real-time previews of formatting options.
  • The Variables feature allows a variable or placeholder to be placed in multiple locations in a document.

Cons
Open Source
  • UI looks a bit dated.
  • Sometimes the number of options are overwhelming and require a quick search to figure out where to locate a particular function.
  • Some way to do a diff between files would be great. Still need to resort to another paid app for that - unless it is a buried function I don't know about or there's a plugin for it.

I haven't needed to utilize any support related to Notepad++. I guess this is a good thing because I found it to be quite intuitive. There are almost infinite features you can tweak and plugins you can download but I haven't had to do that because Notepad++ is really good right out of the box.

Corel still offers support. Microsoft doesn't unless you have a paid contract. LibreOffice is all web-based. If you need support, Corel WordPerfect Office is the best option.

Notepad for Windows, Microsoft Word...LibreOffice Writer....I have used all of these for code writing and editing. Once again I like the universal feel of Notepad++. Basic Notepad, is just that, basic...and kind of clunky for what it is. This is a cool that I have installed on all my computers and also keep it on a thumb drive if I need it elsewhere.

WordPerfect Office is not a product like Blackbaud's products, but it does work very well with them. Merging documents from Blackbaud's Raiser's Edge is accomplished very easily through WordPerfect Office and allows better options in many cases than when merging with Microsoft Word. My main uses for WordPerfect Office have been in merging letters, envelopes, and labels and when searching with reveal codes for improper codes in a document.

Return on Investment
Open Source
  • Productivity has increased for developers.
  • It's free so instead of buying a piece of software, you can use this to replace many of them that may only specialize in one thing.
  • It gives our developers confidence knowing they have such a reliable, free tool at their disposal.

  • My office wouldn't be able to make money at all if we didn't use WordPerfect; we use it to generate all of the documents that we use in our business. Granted, if we used Microsoft or another Office suite, we could eventually obtain the results we currently get, but we seem to have positioned our workflow around WordPerfect and to use something else would potentially hinder our productivity.
