Overall Satisfaction with WordPerfect Office

We use WP as our primary software. We word-process all documents, charts, etc. We store other file types in the various folders and directories as it pertains to our clients.
  • "Reveal codes" is very powerful to figure out formatting glitches.
  • Sometimes converting for MS Word corrupts the formatting and cannot be used.
  • On the newest version, if you open a document from the computer explorer, it opens a whole new program, instead of just opening a new document as in previous versions, so it makes toggling more difficult.
  • There is still a WYSIWYG glitch where sometimes a line does not appear on the screen, but it is definitely there.
  • Easy to train new employees.
  • Flexible and customizable.
Prefer WP to MS Word.
Have used it for so many years, haven't needed any support. So it would be difficult to evaluate.

Very well suited for inter-office work, less well-suited for collaborating with others, because there was a time when all law firms used WP, but now more have moved to MS Word.

We use the same user settings for all employees so people can switch desktops if necessary. Particularly like the "Quickwords" for performing "macro" functions.
