  • 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 that we have a very loyal and passionate…

  • 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 season, I can't…

  • A Google app that could be a killer

    Google just launched a trial of a new service that offers free long distance.  http://bit.ly/c2x86w

    Their new phone calling feature integrates pretty seamlessly (it is almost too hidden) with their GMail service and pops up a little dial pad on your screen.


    Basically free long distance in Canada and US for the rest of the year.  Internationally it will cost you. 

    I wonder what the Telcos think of this?  And I wonder…

  • Intel - McAfee deal

    Intel is bidding to buy McAfee, a security vendor http://bit.ly/9eenaN for $7.7B

    So many comments come to mind on 1st read:

    • Security products now seem to slow down systems so much people disable them.  How will having it bound to hardware affect me in future?  Can I ever turn it off?
    • Intel is going to protect us from deficiencies in other applications or OSs?  Why?  How?
    • What will happen to security as a category going…

  • Wave goodbye

    A while back I wrote about Google Wave http://officecommunity.com/blogs/wordperfect_office_blog/archive/2009/05/31/wave-goodbye-to-email-not-yet.aspx .  A unique way to present and use eMail that I said had the potential to change how we work - just not yet!   Seems like Google is now stopping this much-hyped product: http://bit.ly/d71zZT

  • Microsoft Office launched today - upgrade to our family!

    Microsoft launched Office 2010 today. 
    The big things touted in this release (and my related comments) are:
    • More ribbon - it is integrated more in other Suite apps like Outlook (some like the ribbon and some do not, so not a huge feature for all)
    • Better views behind the scenes - backstage, etc (more tools were added to help you see what is hidden by the ribbon so calling these features seems weak)
    • New video…

  • 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 by this for WordPerfect…

  • Good article on metadata

    If you don't know about metadata and its possible effects, here is a good article.  http://bit.ly/982Ekc A little too MS Word focused, but - so you know - In WordPerfect, Metadata Removal is built in (as are review and comment tools).  But you probably already know that.

    We met with Ed Mendelson, a professor at Columbia and longtime contributor to PC Mag, a few weeks back.  He always provides insight into the market and WordPerfect for me.  One thing he suggested was to provide or expose more of the developed and available functionality to users.  There are some great macros both at WordPerfect Universe and specific sites which I will point out going forward.  Ed mentioned some specific fu…

  • 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 macros.

  • 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 think that there are…

    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.
