Works is a dumbed down version of Word and Excel. You get the full version of Word in the Suite.
The Works Suite is a cheaper way of getting a full version of Word if you don't want or need the other applications in Office.
I have wordperfect 12 - sm

How the heck do I double space??  I have been through the whole tool bar and cannot find where I can double space.  what I have found is how to space between paragraphs, which is not what I need.  I need to double space my report.


please help me   I'm almost crying over this.

I have WordPerfect 11 and have no
problems with Vista. If yours is like mine, it came preloaded with Word 2007 as a trial basis. I just deleted 2007 and loaded my Word 2003 and have not had any problems. I don't know why WordPerfect 11 and 12 would be so different. Maybe you can go to the WordPerfect site and see if it says anything about Vista, or maybe even the Microsoft site.
Wondering if anyone can help me figure this out. I am trying to put the patient's name flush left on the top of the page and CENTER the title on the same line. It keeps centering the name with the title...what am I missing?
WordPerfect X3

I just bought & installed WP X3.  My office requires that all documents are password protected.  As I save my documents, I can 'see' the password protect box, but the program does not allow me to check the box & give a password.

Is there something in X3 that I need to go to that will allow me to use passwords?  I can't find it anywhere in the program & I've used Help, etc.


I am wondering how you put the places in your document that you can jump while typing dictation in WordPerfect?  Can anyone help me?
Wordperfect 5.1 for Dos - does anyone use this anymore? sm
I' m not sure what board to put this one but . . . I have an computer with Wordperfect 5.1 for DOS on it that I've kept around "just in case."  Are there any companies that actually use this program anymore or is it safe to say that I can get rid of it? TIA
Another WordPerfect question sm

I had to install WordPerfect 6.1 for a new client's work.  I already have WordPerfect Suite 12 on my computer, but now WP 6.1 is apparently set up as the default WP program and any time I open a WP document from the Documents menu instead of with WP 12 running, it opens as a WP 6.1 document.

How do I re-set WP 12 as the default WP program?? I have a ton of personal documents in there (I don't currently use it for a client).  I wouldn't mind so much, except that one document I use all the time, my telephone list, opens in WP 6.1 (instead of WP 12, where I originally created it) and then when I try to scroll down it says "insufficient memory" and the program closes.   HELP!!!!


WordPerfect for DOS or Windows?
Either way, you'd have to write a macro or something that would find the next instance of what your jump marker might be, and go there.
Help with WordPerfect 6.1 for Windows
Long story short, I do dictation at a hospital where we use WordPerfect 6.1 for Windows.  I am going to be doing dictation at home and then pasting the file in WordPercfect at the hospital.  I was looking for a way to convert files from MS Word into to WP, but wasn't successful in that so now I'm trying to find a copy of WP 6.1 and am not having any luck.  Does someone know where I might could download this as I need it ASAP or can you use another version of WP with 6.1?  Thanks in advance.
If it comes with WordPerfect, it doesn't come with MS Word.
Unless you pay extra and special order it. One or the other, not both.
Just had to switch from Word to WordPerfect. Could someone please tell me in the
mess that is Corel Office, where I find UNDERSTANDABLE directions for making macros for headings, etc??
WordPerfect numbered list help please!
Just starting to use WordPerfect, so unfamiliar with it. I can't get numbered list feature set properly. I can get it to number, think I have it set, and then when I save the document, close, and reopen, it has changed. Pulling my hair out here :) Any help is appreciated.
WordPerfect is 6.1 (I think) and Word is 2003
Stedman's Spellchecker and WordPerfect

I have Microsoft Word and I have Stedman's Spellchecker on it, but I now also have WordPerfect and am wondering how I get it to pick up the spellchecker?  Anyone know?  Thanks!

Wordperfect instruction sites that are easy

I figured out how to assign shortcut keys to macros in Wordperfect and I found a bunch of other useful instructions for WP at these two sites:

Didn't YOG use WordPerfect 5.1? Hold still my heart.
In WordPerfect, could someone please tell me how to make a line break
so it keeps the justification?  Ctl+shift+L just moves down another line and does not justify.  Thank You. 
How to copy macros from WordPerfect to Word
Does anyone know how to do this?  Would save so much time, as we have tons. Thanks for any ideas!
Depends on the versions of Word and WordPerfect. sm
Some WP versions can read Word .doc files, some don't. Some versions of WP will not accept copy/paste from Word. The advice to save the Word document as an .rtf file may be your only choice.
Need help ASAP - websites that are similar to WordPerfect for dummies.
Went from working soley in Word for last 8 years to WordPerfect 8.  Last time I worked in WP it was dos.  I need quick tips, time savers, keyboard commands, that sort of thing.  Need to get my speed up.  Thanks.
Assign shortcut keys to macro Wordperfect?

I have to switch to Wordperfect after working in MS Word for 7 years.  I have figured out how to record a macro, but how do you assign a shortcut key to it? 

What I am wanting to do is jump to the next * in my reports because that is how I move from heading to heading. 

The help section in WP just confused me

Any help is wonderful


Is there any way to import Word Autocorrect entries into WordPerfect?

I've been Googling it and there is some info about going from WordPerfect to Word, but I can't find anything about importing them from Word to WordPerfect.

I just got really screwy account where we have to transcribe the reports in WordPerfect to get the line count, then save them in Word to send to the client. 

Is there any way to type in microsoft word and then get the document into wordperfect?

SmartType compatible with DQS
Has anyone had any luck getting SmartType to work with MQ DQS?
No you don't have to buy it. If you don't have a compatible player - sm
that can play "PlayAll" files then they will supply the PlayAll XTRA player, though they do ask you send them a CD for it I believe. They supply the WP DOS 5.1, Stedman's Spellcheck via email. That is why I said don't let the question throw you, you don't have to buy anything.....unless you are new of course, then you will need a footpedal. Bytescribe is compatible with the sound files and that is what I use, I also have a copy of the PlayAll which I use to pull up the file information I need to transcribe, but it won't work if you have Bytescribe on your computer. I love my Bytescribe so it stays. They will train in in the use of WP 5.1 and they hire newbies too. I started to work for them with 2 months of experience....it will be 4 years in May since I began working for them. As I said good people, I appreciate them as much as they appreciate me.

I have MS Word 2002 and I know that it is not compatible with Escription 8 which is what I am going to have to start using Monday.  I have a Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 disk that came with my laptop.  So....my question is.....will MS Word 2007 Home and Student work with Escription 8?    My next question is do I need to uninstall my MS Word 2002 before I install MS Word 2007 or will the Word 2007 overwrite the 2002?  Any help with this would be wonderful

Are wav pedals compatible with all programs?
I'm looking to invest in one since I see a lot of jobs require you to have one.  I was wondering if there was a brand out there that is compatible with most programs.  I see some ads say they must have the Start-Stop one and so on.  Any information on this would be greatly appreciated. 
Thank you! Do you know if DocQscribe is compatible w/ satellite? nm
.dss files are not compatible with wav players--sm
They need to be *converted* for WAV players to be able to play them. your wav player may have a conversion tool within it. If it has a *tool* button, open that. It will not automatically play them and saving your files in Word will not convert them to wav files. you have to do that manually. good luck.
MS Works and MS Word are NOT compatible. SM
If you do a document in MS Works and try to open it as an MS Word document all you will get is machine code.  So if you are transcribing for someone who wants the files and they have MS Word, they will not be able to do anything with them (except pull their hair out). 
The newest Stedman's is compatible.
Please let us know if your software is compatible with Vista and thank you.

It seems that companies would hurry up and get compatible with Vista, as they would have more choice in MT's in their hiring process.

Hoping companies will get their VPN, etc. compatible soon.
Vista is so smart and fast -- at least my computer is !
Vista is still not compatible with most platforms currently.
I have yet to see a platform compatible with MAC and if you look at the job ads when listing needed equipment they all say PC.
