Word Perfect is the devil!! i hate it so much, why did they have to make Microsoft stop installing it on their PC's, Word Perfect is worse than Notepad. Like how when you put pictures in it won't let you arrange the words how you want them, and if oyu manage to do it, next time you tpye a letter it all goes bakc and all that work is screwed up again. and when you go back to add words to the middle of a sentance it erases whats in front, not move it forward. Its completely user unfreindly, its hard to configure layout and what not.

do you have the same expireance?

Is Word Perfect different than MS Word?

I've never heard of Word Perfect. In fact, I only have Textpad on my laptop here, no MS Word, :lol:.

Isn't it written "WordPerfect"? :uhm:

If we are talking about the same product, yes, I like it. Especially the code window, as far as I know there is no such feature in MS Word. Unfortunately I don't currently use it, I somehow found the new versions inferior to the good old 6.0 (with the necessary patches), and as nobody else can open the .wpd format, that I find much better than e.g. .doc, I have given up and use Openoffice and when necessary, MS Word.

Why in the name of Jeebus are you using it, then?! Get OpenOffice!

To be honest, I think Notepad beats them all. It's less likely to crash while you're typing an important paper.

I type all of my school papers in Notepad as .txt's, then I copy and paste into Word and save as a .doc.

Indeed. OpenOffice is great. It does everything all the MS programs do just as good if not better, and is completely free.
