Corel Wordperfect Office X6 - Standard Edition is a great product!
6 August 2014
Summary: I have been using WordPerfect Office for about 30 years.I upgraded from WordPerfect Office 2000 to Corel Wordperfect Office X6 - Standard Edition because of the upgrades of the operating system. This is an A1 product that I would recomend to anyone.
Excerpt: As a long time user of WordPerfect, I find that it has greater capabilities than Word and is more intuitive when it comes to selecting features. It is definitely a better product. The down side is, Corel offers no support for their product.
Summary: I use both WordPerfect and MS Word, and I believe WordPerfect is a much better product. I regret they don't have the exposure and marketing ability the MS Word does.

Pros: Many customizable features; much richer product than Microsoft Word 2000 (I have both).
Cons: Free customer support (if you need it for problems) lasts for only 60 days.
Summary: Who needs PageMaker or Quark Express? If you do your own printing in-house, WordPerfect is an excellent and inexpensive choice for page layout. I have been using it for 6 six years in my desktop publishing business to lay out business cards, brochures, newsletters, invitations -- just about anything including full-color pictures -- for printing on my B&W and color laser printers and wide-format color plotter.
Pros: powerful yet easy to use
Cons: the controls are looking more and more like MS Word, which is making it clumsier
Summary: I picked up Print Office from Compusmart, for $15CAN with a $10 rebate. That's about three to four USD. It's a discontinued product but it still has online support and user groups. For the price it is exceptional value, especially for the casual and budget conscious user. Unlike more expensive publishing programs (MS Publisher, for example) it allows the stacking of graphics and text without the box contents interfering with each other.
Pros: Print Office mimics the old cut and paste methods I learned and used doing layout and design.
Cons: The learning guides and wizards can be frustrating but it comes with a manual, which helps.
