  • Why are WordPerfect users so passionate?

    Hello! For those of you that don’t know me - my name is Peter Hanschke - I’m the Director of Product Management for the Productivity Software Group here at Corel. I look after WordPerfect, Perfect Authority, Corel Office, PDF Fusion and the just released WordPerfect eBook Publisher add-on. Since my arrival last year, I’ve been getting to know some of our users, and my impression is...
  • Looking for macro users or wannabees

    Hi Folks, We have been trying to make things easier for people to learn and work with WordPerfect Office. One of the areas we are working on is macros - and we are revamping the documentation to try to make it easier for people to understand and work with WordPerfect to make their repetitive tasks easier. We are looking for some volunteers (either those interested in learning about macros or those...
  • Next version thoughts

    Hi Folks, We continue to think about what people would like to see in the next version. So, I thought I would create a new area on our site to get your direct feedback (the area I created earlier for new feature requests is getting clogged by support type stuff). Under the Forums->WordPerfect-> path you will find a new forum called "Next version X4+ thoughts". We would love your input...
  • Webinar answers part 1

    Thank you to many of you for attending our webinars a few weeks ago. As promised we are going to post answers here on OfficeCommunity. Since there were so many questions I will post them up in sections. The following are answers to one section of questions - on WordPerfect Office X5. After a few days I will post answers to another section of questions. Cheers, Jay ----- Q&A WordPerfect Office X5...
  • Error 24 and WordPerfect will not start

    Hi Folks, A recent issue with software not starting up for people and popping up an error code (Error code 24) seems to be affecting users of CorelDraw and to some extent WordPerfect. All users that we have seen affected by this have, in fact, not purchased legitimate Corel software. They may have purchased it in good faith, but did not get real keys, but beta ones that do expire. If you are affected...
  • WordPerfect Viewer for the iPhone and iPad

    We introduced Corel's third mobile app today… the first Productivity app from Corel designed to work on both the iPhone and iPad. Available from iTunes for purchase today, our loyal users will now be able to view, share and store their WordPerfect documents on the go! Users who rely on WordPerfect will now be able to take care of business on the fly and keep important projects moving. If...
  • PerfectScript Example 1 Part 1 - Retrieve filenames from a directory

    Welcome to the first of what I hope to be a series of PerfectScript macro discussions and examples. These examples have been derived from actual customer workflows, Corel in-house procedures and some useful stuff from the web. While they aren't tutorials as such, hopefully they can provide insight into some of the tasks that can be automated by PerfectScript and perhaps trigger ideas for your own...
  • Do any lawyers out there work on TOAs?

    Hi Folks, Just polling community members as to whether anyone works on TOAs (either manual or using some sort of tool or WPO itself). Would love to dialog on how you do things. Regards, Jay
  • New in WordPerfect X5! Web Services (Tutorial)

    One of the great new features in WordPerfect X5 is the Web Services functionality. WP now allows you to query online web services and import the data directly to your documents. In addition, we've added a Data Storage option that works for all database imports. This feature returns database/spreadsheet/Web Service data into a named variable array, which then allows you to access this data through...

  • My Favorite Things…About WordPerfect

    In my first post on the Corel blog , I offered my point of view on life at Corel -- and described how exciting it is to work on products I use at home. In my follow-up post , I illustrated a specific example: my countless hours spent video-editing family memories with Corel VideoStudio . In this blog post, I'd like to express my soft-spot for WordPerfect Office X5 . And, in the spirit of the Holiday...
  • WordPerfect in the Top 10 - One award I could live without

    ZDNet ran an article on the 10 biggest failures in IT history last Friday. I usually like to be part of top 10s, but maybe not this one. But, there was WordPerfect right at #8 on the list. Well, not so much WordPerfect, but Corel, for failing to topple Microsoft with this great technology. I can't speak for decisions made 20 or even 10 years ago. But, I have always been competitive, so I like to...
  • Save time by automating with macros

    Hi Folks, A great feature of WordPerfect is the ability to automate what actually gets created, so that you can save time by using WordPerfect to complete what would normally be repetitive tasks. Think of how many times you may create a signature at the bottom of a letter, grab data from some other place (like a database), or change dates in a document. Larger organizations utliize macros a great deal...
  • The two software divides

    I was struck recently by the divides in software from two examples close to me. On the one hand I received an invite to the Office 2.0 conference in San Fran. I have attended the past few years (we sponsored last year) and the conference is all about taking Productivity to the web. Wikis, web apps, etc. - very futuristic stuff. On the other hand, I was asked by my uncle-in-law this week to help him...
  • Migrating to new versions of WPO

    My initial vision for this site was to be a place where we could discuss the technology and office productivity markets. However, I find that I am doing a lot more customer support than I had anticipated. I am going to try and get back to more of an industry perspective for a while so please excuse any latency in post responses that you may experience. But, there is so much going on (not just in technology...
