Word perfect is the perfect word processing program. Unlike the free pos word program included on computers, which was written by software engineers (math geeks) so they could make notes to themselves, WordPerfect was written by and for people who need to communicate clearly, precisely, using different formats, with other professionals. It is the epitome of word processing.

I downloaded and installed WordPerfect to my Windows 10 laptop easily, without any conflicts or problems in less than 10 minutes. It automatically found my printers and printed my document.

I'm delighted to have my old favorite back again.

I have owned many computers over the past twenty years - desktops and laptops. In each, I have used Microsoft Office suites. When I discovered how expensive they had become AND the fact that most of the ones I would use are now operating out of the 'cloud' rather than remaining contained, along with the things I create with them. I began to consider alternatives. With programs that nicely (and intuitively) replicate MS Word, Power Point, Excel and Note as well as a new photo management program (Aftershot 2) for which there is no direct MS Office suite counterpart, I am able to accomplish each of my office suite needs very nicely, keeping both the programs and created items in my own computer - where I want to have them!

With the purchase of a new 2-in-1 Lenovo laptop recently, I decided that with only $34. to lose, I would finally get around to trying a well-reviewed (but FAR less costly) Word Perfect Office X8 Home & Student suite. I was not disappointed. In fact, I was so pleased as to be genuinely astounded! I am able to accomplish each of my office suite needs very nicely, keeping both the programs and created items in my own computer - where I want to have them!

Each of the programs is smoothly compatible with the programs offered by Microsoft and although I have become accustomed to using the MIcrosoft products, the transition has been a smooth one with the 'learning curve' rather gentle and quick. At about 1/4 the cost of a single-key download of the parallel Microsoft Office program, I cannot think of a good reason to NOT buy this excellent software from Corel!

Wordperfect X8 is a winner!
It addresses the problems associated with trying to use Wordpefect in the Windows 10 environment. These mainly, for me, seemed to be the inability to open files once you were in Wordperfect. This caused the computer to freeze and necessitated a hard restart by turning off the computer as the windows explorer ceased to function.

In Wordperfect X8 files, no matter how deep into folders, open perfectly.

I have used the various Wordperfect programs now for more than 20 years. I have found them to be far superior to Microsoft Word, which in my mind was not very user friendly in the past. Word is much better than it was, but Wordperfect provides easier creation of images and captions, footnotes, and many other features.

Finally Reveal codes in Wordperfect is its greatest strength, which allows you to see where any coding begins and ends. It makes for easier correction or changes within texts.

All in all a good job which will allow me to use Wordperfect for many years to come.

I've always liked WordPerfect better than Word, but thought WordPerfect had gone to Word Processing Heaven after Corel bought it from Novell. So glad to see it's still around and was delighted to purchase this version on a daily deal. I've used WordPerfect since it's DOS version and my favorite things about WordPerfect over Word is that with WordPerfect I can easily see the formatting codes (Reveal Codes) and margins are so much easier to set without having to pull up the layout menu like I do in Word. Formatting a document and line numbering are just so much easier with WordPerfect. For me, WordPerfect is just a more user-friendly program and that could be because I'm a bit biased since I used it so many years ago. It also pulls up my previous Word documents from OneDrive with no problem. I haven't used the other programs in the Suite yet, but look forward to in the future.

I love WordPerfect! I worked as a paralegal for 18 years and a word processor prior to that and for straight word processing, Word can't compare. WordPerfect is designed in a linear format. You have a begin code and an end code for everything. If something's out of wack, delete the code and move on. I have had so many problems with Word, which was really designed for desktop publishing and is box or set up in sections. Unfortunately for WordPerfect users, Microsoft included Word on all of their systems. The software was installed on most systems in schools and was really the only choice for students, so Word is what they learned. It's great for desktop publishing. But for straight word processing, having used both over the years, WordPerfect gets my vote every time. It's funny, I've trained many people over the years and the Word users fought it tooth and nail, but when they learned WordPerfect, 100% of the time, they prefer WordPerfect over Word for straight text documents.

I had all the top programs back in the day. PFS Pro-Write, then WordStar, then WordPerfect. Life was great. Then someone at work told us all to use MS Word and nobody was happy from that point on.

So I use Word at work. But when home, now I get to use Wordperfect again! I sure did miss it! It's a better program but had worse marketing (just like Beta was better than VHS), so maybe they hired program writers instead of ad execs. It shows. I love the program.

There is no need to sell you on it. You are here because, let's face it, you have used it, you know it, you are fond of it, and you miss it, and you want to know if it is worth going back to it. Of course it is. Buy it. You came this far.

I have been a fan of WordPerfect since the late 1980's. It is so much more capable than the MS Word product that the difference is awesome.

I use WordPerfect for all my word processing and all my graphic designs for my t-shirt business.

Plus, the home & student version includes all the same software as the "suite" version, so I'm at a loss for what the differences would be. I haven't found anything I need to do with it that it won't do.

I have known WorlPerfect for many years and bought this version, X8, because of compatibility with Dragon NaturalySpeaking 13.0. I am dictating an adventure novel in Dragon and WP way beats Word for editing.

There has been a problem however. I had my laptop motherboard die a month ago. I did a clean install of Windows 10 on my PC and laptop. I have not been able to get the serial number from the previous installation to be accepted on Win 10 as a clean installation. WP help desk has been reasonably helpful, and said the old serial would not work on the clean Win 10. Huh? I am still working with them, with about a three day turnaround on each comment.

I still currently am out my money as of March, 2017, and have no functioning version of WorkPerfect X8. The trial period has expired. Still working on this. Previously, X8 worked very well like WP of old. Will update if this is ever resolved.

Update as of 10/23/2017. Diana Sweet of Corel just fixed this problem today. I had used a B instead of an 8 in the serial number. This was my fault completely, with a little blame for the font I was using on my screen. Sometimes the characters are difficult to separate. Problem solved. Highly recommend, especially for editing manuscripts for novels.

I bought Corel Version 8 for teachers sometime in the 80's. I used it on three or four different computers, the last computer operating on Vista. I developed many documents in the word and spreadsheet sections of the program. Some of these files I am still using and adding to. Having bought a new Windows 10 laptop, I figured it was time for new Corel software, especially since MicroSoft's Word was driving me crazy. I purchased Version X8. That's a 10 version update. I loaded it in my new laptop. Saved each file from the old system onto a USB stick, and pulled each file off the stick with the new version on the new computer. Absolutely NO problems. Plus, Corel has had no problems working in the MicroSoft files I developed in the last few years because Word was the program supplied at work.. On the other hand, MicroSoft has a lot of problems dealing with files started in Corel. One of Corel's biggest advantages is the ability to revel the codes the program uses. I never found that ability in MicorSoft. It's like coming home!

IMPORTANT: IF YOU HAVE PRINTING PROBLEMS WITH COREL WORDPERFECT X8 FREEZING UP THEN FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS TO SOLVE THE PRINTING PROBLEM.

GO TO CONTROL PANEL/DEVICES AND PRINTERS, AND RIGHT CLICK ON MICROSOFT PRINT TO PDF AND REMOVE THIS DEVICE, AND REPEAT AND REMOVE MICROSOFT XPS DOCUMENT WRITER, AND REMOVE PAGEMANGER PDF WRITER. THEN RIGHT CLICK YOUR PRINTER AND SET TO DEFAULT. OPEN WORDPERFECT X8 and you must type something or it will not print for a test page; therefore, type something like test page and then print. I hope this helps on printing problems if they occur.
