    Still the best word processor

    I've been using WordPerfect (WP) since 1982. I can open those files with the latest version of WP, and all versions of WP for Windows can open older version files (try that with Word!). I love how you can see all the formatting codes and edit or delete them if you want to. I even use my old PC/AT keyboards with function keys on the left with the latest versions of WP - let's me do a lot of formatting, editing, and moving around in a file without needing to reach for the mouse. OK - I'm a bit retro, but I love WP X9. (And, I can read/write Word files for my friends if I have to.)

    So far, it appears to work just like WordPerfect 4 and WordPerfect 5. As with older versions, it loaded easily. As a WordPerfect user since the days of DOS, I prefer WordPerfect over other word processing programs. Converting to Word docs is very easy and I often write/edit in WordPerfect and convert files seamlessly when necessary. I rate the version with an A+.

    Good Alternative To Office

    I'm used to using Microsoft Office for word processing and all my other work, but I got this because it was cheaper than Office (and it was on sale at the time) and I'm happy with it so far. It is easier to get used to than I thought it would be. So far, I haven't used it much, so if anything comes up, I'll definitely update this review if I can.

    I took off a star as the word processing program does not have a feature WP tech support told me it had when I called them and asked. This is not a reflection on Best Buy, which had a good price on it. It is a nice suite of programs I look forward to using. At least the WP has features MS Word does not.

    Reimaged a 11 year old computer with an older version of WordPerfect for a friend's mom. After fully updating Windows 7, the old version of WP would not install after trying for almost an entire day. Bought X9, and it installed and work flawlessly. She's a happy lady.

    My first software was an early version of word perfect. I bought it hoping I could replace Microsoft office. I worked with it for several days. I new it would be very different. I used their tutorial to learn it. The tutorial was of no use. I gave up after several hours of frustration. I was glad I did not delete my Microsoft office.

    This may lack the polish from the Washington based company, it may not have the wide support than the free GNU office suites. It is my favorite word processor. It needs an updated equation editor, however. The bundled equation editor is from the 90's....

    I have used WordPerfect since before its name was changed to Word-Perfect. I knew the two men who wrote the program and there were features that outshined Word. I have always used WordPerfect in my job at the office, and in the personal projects I worked on. I give it a 5 star rating!

    Great office suite, but with caution

    I rated this purchase 3/5 stars because it is advertised as compatible with MS Office. While it is less expensive than the MS Office suite, compatibility is wonky at best. I am not pleased as my MS created documents did not display correctly in WordPerfect at all.

    I have been using WordPerfect even before windows. This upgrade is from X5 to X9. WordPerfect has always been the best for word processing. Especially thankful I had it during my graduate education.

    WP has been a consistently good product since I began using a much earlier version almost 30 years ago. It does all of what I need to produce quality documents without a lot of clunky bloat. Thanks. Corel!

    I have been able to use this program with similar ways that I used the Word I had before. Familiarity was important. There are some things that I would like to learn which I am doing as needed.

    The program is easy to learn and covers all the needed applications. I have used this program from the beginning of the 1990´s and have kept up to date on the different editions.

    I've always preferred WordPerfect over Word, and I was so happy to be able to purchase WP9 after my computer crashed. And so happy that the Geek guys installed it perfectly!

    WordPerfect has always been a superior product. It works so much better than Word and it is so much more intuitive. It does exactly what you tell it to do.

    I didn't care for the WP program! It just didn't seem like the old Word Perfect I use to know. I uninstalled the program!
