Summary: I had to buy a new computer, my old one was obsolete. Love Word perfect and wanted to continue using it. There are a few new features about it that I don't like but I'm sure I'll get used to it. It is formatted more like MS Word. I liked the old one better. It was much simpler.
Pros: I have used WordPerfect since 1985, from DOS thru Windows 8.1 Pro. Although WordPerfect can be operated in the Microsoft Word Mode, it was, To me, ripped off by Microsoft; too bad MS did not get nailed by the Feds for making computer OEMs by MS Word if they wanted to get the best OS pricing! That put a big hurt on WordPerfect (which was the company name at the time). It was hurt for a time after it was sold to a company not into publishing, word processing. However, a...
Cons: Compared to Word, none. Or, perhaps that some might want you to save your work in Word format for their convenience.
Pros: I wish the world would finally get a hint and move to Wordperfect. It is sooo much easier than Word. I have used both programs for the last 25 or so years (Wordperfect starting with 4.0). WordPerfect 6X has taken a lot of the little hitches out and made such an easy product to use. Tables, Macro creation, even doing spread sheet functions with out having to start a spread sheet program, and all within the word processing program. It actually imports more types of file...
Cons: There is so much packed into the program you need one of those "Mega-Volumed" books to use it all. BTW, I have a few of those "Mega-Volumed" books to do just that.
Summary: I bought this program for my husband's new computer because he couldn't make Microsoft Word do what WordPerfect does and he didn't want to learn a new way to do things. So it was just easier to get him the program he liked so I didn't have to listen to his complaining any more. He loves the WordPerfect X6 and I now have quiet evenings in front of my computer.
Word Perfect is the best word processing software on the market!

Summary: I am very pleased with my purchase. Having used Word Perfect for many years, as a computer professional, I know it is better than Microsoft Word (more user friendly). Saving so much money by purchasing on Ebay, I will not go anywhere else to buy my software from now on. Word Perfect is so good that it can be easily used for desktop publishing.
