Introducing WordPerfect® Office X3
WordPerfect® Office X3 is everything you’d expect from an office suite — and
more — for less. Enhanced compatibility ensures that you can work with people
who use Microsoft® Office or other office suites. Each application in the suite
has been updated with stylish new buttons and toolbars to provide more
familiar and easy-to-use environments. With lightning speed, the new
WordPerfect® MAIL™ application will find information in the most cluttered
inbox. Plus, groundbreaking new features and enhancements, such as
PDF-import capability, make this the most enticing and innovative WordPerfect
Office yet.
It’s Compatible
WordPerfect Office continues to break down compatibility barriers for its users.
These days, who has time to figure out which product works with which file
format? Customers want to simply and easily open, edit, save, and send
documents, spreadsheets, and slide shows. To that end, WordPerfect Office X3
provides improved support for Microsoft Office file formats. In addition, the
suite’s built-in PDF publishing capabilities have been enhanced, making it easier
than ever to exchange information.
It’s Easy to Use
WordPerfect Office X3 provides exciting new features that are designed to
reduce the need for software expertise. The user interface (UI) for each
application has been refreshed, providing more intuitive, familiar environments.
Context-sensitive toolbars make it easy to identify tools and features. You can
copy HTML and paste clean, unformatted text. The unmatched Corel® RealTime
Preview™ lets you see how potential formatting changes will affect your work
before you commit to them. To help new users find their footing, the Workspace
Manager can simulate the keystrokes and menu items of other office suites, such
as Microsoft Office. The unobtrusive PerfectExpert™ is a handy guide and
consultant for virtually any project. Plus, two free hours of training videos by
lynda.com are included on CD.

the application bar, so the Word Count feature is now always just a click away. In

The recently introduced WordPerfect MAIL combines e-mail, calendar, and
contact management tools with stellar spam protection, innovative filing
capabilities, and ultra-fast search. To streamline workflow, the integrated

drawings and pictures in WordPerfect®, Quattro Pro®, Presentations™, and
elsewhere. You also get quick, integrated access to Web search functionality
and a variety of other online resources with the new WordPerfect® Online

It’s Affordable
At less than half the cost of Microsoft Office, WordPerfect Office X3 ensures that
you’re getting the best value for your dollar. Corel’s flexible licensing options
have recently won over high-profile customers, such as the United States
Department of Justice, the Canadian Government, and the United States Courts.
In addition, free technical support is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week,
with the online Corel® Knowledge Base™, which contains answers to commonly
asked technical questions.
It Makes Perfect Sense
Renowned for its unique and innovative features, its enthusiastic and loyal user
base, and its 20-year reputation for delivering professional results, WordPerfect
Office is the world’s number-one alternative to Microsoft Office. It makes perfect
sense. In today’s market, customers are weary of rising costs and the expectation
of an exclusive commitment to a single vendor. WordPerfect Office X3 addresses
this concern and differentiates itself by delivering exceptional customer value. It
combines the features and capabilities that office-suite users expect with
outstanding ease of use, true flexibility, and an unparalleled ability for content
reuse. WordPerfect Office X3 has solutions designed specifically for government

Top New and Distinguishing Features
Suite-wide
Renowned for the freedom that it affords you to work in whichever manner you
choose, WordPerfect Office continues to provide more options and flexibility in
how you get the job done. The often imitated, yet still unrivaled, Reveal Codes
feature eliminates document formatting problems. In addition, the exceptional
Corel RealTime Preview lets you see exactly how potential formatting changes
will look before applying them.
To reduce the learning curve and training costs, the Workspace Manager can
help new users become familiar with WordPerfect Office. You can set the
applications to simulate the keystrokes and menu items of other office
productivity applications, including Microsoft Office. In addition to these
popular benefits, WordPerfect Office X3 has been dramatically updated with a
wide variety of innovations, including groundbreaking built-in PDF import and
export capabilities.
New & Enhanced! Share your documents as PDFs: WordPerfect Office
X3 makes it easy to share information with other computer users. Whether it’s a
spreadsheet, drawing, slide show, or HTML Web page, the now suite-wide
Publish to PDF feature lets you convert any document to PDF.
Since 1999, WordPerfect Office has offered the most robust PDF publishing
capabilities of any office suite. Quattro Pro X3 now provides the same PDF
publishing feature offered by WordPerfect and Presentations. In addition, the
PDF capabilities of WordPerfect and Presentations have been enhanced. To learn
more about these enhancements, please consult their respective descriptions on
pages 15 and 22.
Enhanced! Compatibility with Microsoft® Office: Do you need to
communicate with friends, clients, or colleagues in Microsoft Office file formats?
Not a problem. You can open, edit, and create all current Microsoft Office files.
Out of the box, WordPerfect even lets you open more legacy Microsoft Word
formats than Word 2003 allows. When working in Microsoft Office mode, you
can also easily set your WordPerfect Office X3 applications to save as Microsoft
Word (DOC), Microsoft Excel (XLS), or Microsoft PowerPoint (PPT) by default.
Reviewer’s Guide [ 11 ]
Compatibility for text alignment and table borders have been enhanced with
WordPerfect X3 so that they are imported more accurately from Microsoft Word.
Plus, support for automatic paragraph numbering has been improved. For
Quattro Pro X3, support for comments within the Excel spreadsheet and support
for cell formatting in Excel 2000 exports have been improved. Based on direct
user feedback, Presentations X3 now supports backgrounds, footers, layouts and
masters, data charts, and object transformation (rotating, moving, scaling, and
skewing).
In addition, WordPerfect, Quattro Pro, and Presentations each include a
Compatibility toolbar that makes it easy to save in multiple formats, including
Microsoft Office formats, PDF, HTML, and XML. To further ease the transition for
newer users, the Compatibility toolbars also include one-click access to Help
topics that address working with Microsoft Office files.
Works like Microsoft® Office: Are you familiar with Microsoft Office?
Concerned about having to learn another office suite? With WordPerfect Office
X3, there’s no need to hunt for commands or features, or figure out new
keystrokes. With a single click, the unique Workspace Manager automatically
adopts the keystrokes and menus of the software with which you’re most
familiar — whether it’s WordPerfect Office, Microsoft Office, or Lotus 1-2-3.
New! Updated User Interface: The first thing you’ll notice about
WordPerfect Office X3 is the clean, new look. With support for Windows XP
default themes, the toolbars, dialog boxes, and controls of WordPerfect,
Quattro Pro, and Presentations have been updated. This familiar appearance

of use of any office suite, templates provide guidance for document formatting

and large-scale installations, you can easily retain macros, templates, and other
custom settings. In addition, you can import WordPerfect Office 12, WordPerfect
Office 11, or WordPerfect Office 2002 settings and files. Alternatively, IT
managers can customize a command line to migrate settings from a previous
installation.
Home and Laptop Licensing: Here’s a prime example of the value and
flexibility that WordPerfect Office provides. Corel recognizes that the line
between home and work has become less defined. To that end, the purchase of
WordPerfect Office X3 allows for an additional installation on a home computer
or laptop — free of charge.
Reviewer’s Guide [ 13 ]
WordPerfect® X3

files. No other office suite can make this claim. With half a billion installations of
Adobe® Reader® worldwide — the free viewer for the ubiquitous file format —
computer users rely on PDF to exchange information.
Too often customers have difficulties when trying to access and reuse PDF
content. To resolve this challenge, WordPerfect X3 introduces the ability to
import PDF files. By simply opening a PDF with WordPerfect X3, you can easily
reuse text and graphics, and then save the file to any of the various formats

Enhanced! Integration with WordPerfect® MAIL™: WordPerfect allows
you to use your WordPerfect MAIL address book in WordPerfect. For example,
you can choose an individual from the WordPerfect MAIL contact list when
creating routing slips for document tracking or creating envelopes and labels.
Give it a try
Using a WordPerfect® MAIL™ address book with
WordPerfect®
1 In WordPerfect X3, click Tools ` Address Book.
The Address Book dialog box opens.
2 In the tree view, click the plus sign (+) beside WordPerfect Mail, and
choose an address book.
Enhanced! Pasting and exporting HTML: The Web is a critical source of
content. Experience shows that customers need to be able to repurpose Web
content more easily with their office suite. To that end, WordPerfect X3
introduces the new Paste Unformatted Text command, which you can access by
using the right-click menu, or the Ctrl + Alt + V keyboard shortcut. The ability to
capture HTML content and reuse it unhindered by formatting problems saves
significant time. In addition to providing an easy-to-use menu, the Publish to
HTML dialog box now offers a Plain HTML option for exporting HTML.
New! View in Web browser: By user request, WordPerfect X3 provides
convenient integration with Microsoft Internet Explorer, so that you can more
easily work with WordPerfect files from a Web browser. If you have WordPerfect
X3 installed, you can easily open current and legacy WordPerfect documents
within a browser for viewing and printing. This integration also extends to such
products as Microsoft® Sharepoint® and IBM® Workplace™.
New! Removing metadata: WordPerfect X3 helps ensure that you’ll never
get caught with confidential or sensitive information in your documents. Every
few months, the media reports a case of metadata exposing a document’s
secrets. Metadata is information that lurks within office productivity files, such
as undo/redo history, reviewers’ notes, hidden text, and comments. This type of
information is often confidential, and its inclusion within files could be
detrimental to court cases or contract negotiations. The new Save Without
Metadata feature makes it simple to remove all metadata from your documents
— without requiring additional purchase or download.

The new Save Without Metadata dialog box makes it easy to remove metadata from
your documents.

By default, _mtd is added to the filename to identify that the file does
not contain metadata.
4 In the Select Metadata To Remove area, enable any of the
following check boxes:
• Comment Information
• Hidden Text
• Annotations
• Undo/Redo History
• Document Summary Data
• Headers

5 Click Save.
New! Label formats: WordPerfect Office X3 provides new label formats
from well-known brands, such as Avery® (in letter and A4 formats), C-Line Label
Products®, and Wilson-Jones®.
Reveal Codes: This unique feature has long been a favorite of WordPerfect
aficionados because it helps to reduce the time required for formatting your
document. Easy to use, Reveal Codes makes it simple to change document
formatting. For example, to remove bold formatting, you can turn on Reveal
Codes, locate the <Bold> code, and then just drag it out of the Reveal Codes

window. You can also double-click any code in the Reveal Codes window to
make advanced alterations to the settings or styles.
Pleading Expert and Legal toolbar: The Pleading Expert is another
example of WordPerfect providing customization options to fit every need. With
the Pleading Expert, you create a custom pleading format — one time, and for
each variation required — and then simply use the Pleading Expert Filler to
complete your pleadings.
To save time, help you get organized, and streamline your workflow, you can
turn on the Legal toolbar. It provides quick access to tools that let you easily
create Tables of Authorities, Tables of Contents, and lined Pleading Paper. Other
tools on the Legal toolbar let you turn on automatic paragraph numbering, use
Redlining, create watermarks, publish to EDGAR, and compare documents.

your fingertips from both WordPerfect and Presentations.
