WordPerfect® Lightning™
WordPerfect Lightning is a new Web-connected digital notebook that makes it
easier than ever to capture, organize, and reuse ideas, information, and images.
It helps you perform your most common tasks simpler and faster.
Twenty years ago, in the early days of word processing, people started with a
blank page. Today, in a pattern that has paralleled the growth of the Web,
people spend most of their time consuming or reusing information, rather than
creating it from scratch. They usually take ideas, information, and images from
one place — the Web, e-mail, existing documents, or other sources — and use
them somewhere else.
The rise of this common workflow has revealed a gap between today's wordprocessing products — one that’s filled by WordPerfect Lightning. With a simple
set of tools, WordPerfect Lightning gives you a fast, easy way to consume,
capture, and reuse the information that's important to you.
WordPerfect Lightning has four components: the Navigator, the Notes window,
the Viewer, and the Connector.
The Notes window: In an easy-to-use workspace, the Notes window lets you
capture your ideas and reuse information from other sources. It gives you access
to standard word-processing features, such as fonts and font styles, bullets and
[ 16 ] Reviewer’s Guide
numbering, text alignment, tables, and color. The Notes window even lets you
insert graphics or pictures in your notes.
Give it a try
Creating a note
1 From the Start menu, click All Programs ` WordPerfect Office X4 `
Corel WordPerfect Lightning.
2 In the WordPerfect Lightning Start Panel, click Make a note.
3 In the Notes window, type some text.
The text you type becomes the note title in the Navigator.
The Viewer: The Viewer is a fast, lightweight file-viewing alternative for PDF,
Microsoft Word (binary), WordPerfect, and image files. One of the many
strengths of the Viewer is the versatility it gives you as a PDF reader. From the
ability to see document information to the power to search the document, the
Viewer is a quicker way to maximize everything that PDFs offer. And with
clickable links and helpful, intuitive page rotation, you can replace Adobe®
Reader® or other PDF-viewing programs with WordPerfect Lightning.
The Viewer also offers simple ways to capture and reuse information. For
example, you can drag image files from your desktop or Windows® Explorer
into WordPerfect Lightning, where the files are organized as notes. You can
then save the photo, allowing you to easily reuse it later in WordPerfect X4 or a
WordPress blog.
Give it a try

Snapshot Tool: You can easily take a snapshot of any area of your desktop or
Web browser with the Snapshot tool with a simple click-and-drag. The snapshot
is saved as a note, which you can then e-mail, print, or save as an image file, or

The Navigator: This folder-based application works like a notebook, allowing
you to create, store, and organize your ideas and documents in a familiar tree
structure. You can send an entire folder of notes to WordPerfect X4, where the
notes are compiled in one document.
Give it a try
Organizing notes and sending them to WordPerfect X4

3 Right-click the new folder, and choose Send To Word Processor.
4 In the Choose Word Processor dialog box, enable the WordPerfect
option, and click OK.
The snapshot note and text note are sent to WordPerfect X4 and open
in the same document.
The Connector: The Connector is Web-based software that provides tools for
contact and calendar management, e-mail, and more. With nothing to install on
your computer, you simply access it like any other Web site.
WordPerfect Lightning lets you upload your notebook from the Navigator on
[ 18 ] Reviewer’s Guide
your desktop to the Connector online, where you can share up to 200 MB of
notes and documents with other online users.

Corel Visual Intelligence is business intelligence for the masses, letting you
visualize and analyze complex data easier than ever. When you open a Quattro
Pro spreadsheet in Corel Visual Intelligence, the graph that best suits the data is
automatically displayed. Color-coded cells let you quickly identify value ranges,
and rich visual graphs help you understand your data better.

range of data being analyzed and visualized. You can also use data from
Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. A built-in learning guide walks you step-by-step

When It’s More Than a Page
Corel WordPerfect Office X4 delivers a legendary user experience found
nowhere else, offering unparalleled control over multipage documents and
features famous for their ability to deliver results when it counts. In the past,
when most people went about writing a letter or creating a simple or informal
document, they often used a word processor. Today, however, almost everyone
does that in e-mail. So when there’s more at stake — a critical document or
something longer than a page or two — that’s when you need a tool that
delivers results. That's when you need Corel WordPerfect Office X4.
Renowned for its ease of use, Corel WordPerfect Office lets users get right to
work, so they can get the job done. Many of the longtime features that
distinguished Corel WordPerfect Office in the past have so impressed competing
office suites that they decided to try to copy them! Often imitated, but never
duplicated, Corel WordPerfect Office is still your best choice when the task at
hand is more than a page.

New! Redaction: Adding to its list of impressive security features,
WordPerfect X4 now offers versatile redaction tools. You can now replace
sensitive or confidential information with a black bar in a way that ensures that
the replaced text cannot be retrieved or revealed in the redacted version of the
document. This versatile feature lets you easily search a document for words and
phrases you want to hide and automatically apply redaction marks. In addition,
you can now output the redacted document to DOC, PDF, or WordPerfect with
the redacted text in place.
Give it a try
Adding redaction marks to a document
1 Click File menu ` Open.
2 In the Open File dialog box, choose redact.wpd from the Sample
File folder on the Corel WordPerfect Office X4 Press Kit CD, and click
3 Click Tools menu ` Redaction ` Mark for redaction.
4 Select the first paragraph.
5 Click File menu ` Save.
6 Click Tools menu ` Redaction ` Create redacted document `
7 In the Confirm Redaction dialog box, click OK.
Redact sensitive text
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.
Control your formatting with Reveal Codes
Make It Fit: Sometimes you have just a little too much to say in the space you
have to work with. This longtime favorite lets you select a block of text and
instantly resize it to fit a specified number of pages. And, the tweaking is so
subtle that formatting changes are barely noticeable.
Customizable workspace: With the release of Microsoft Office 2007,
longtime users of previous versions of Microsoft Office were faced with a new
user interface, and consequently, a learning curve. Rather than force you to
work a certain way, Corel WordPerfect Office X4 encourages you to work in
whatever way suits you best by customizing your workspace. You can tailor
menus, shortcut keys, and toolbars, and you can even export and share your
customized workspace.
PerfectExpert™: Get started quickly with the PerfectExpert, a step-by-step
guide that offers an array of project templates and helpful advice. Positioned on
the left side of the workspace, this comprehensive resource waits unobtrusively
to provide help when you need it. When you start a PerfectExpert project, the
PerfectExpert panel dynamically updates to provide advice and guidance specific
to the task at hand.
Context-sensitive property bars: The property bar in each application of
Corel WordPerfect Office X4 puts every option and button related to the task
you’re performing right at your fingertips, saving you time and effort.
Browse By button: A hidden gem in WordPerfect X4 and Quattro Pro X4, the
handy button lets you scroll through your long documents by heading, table,
footnote, graphic, or other object, so you can quickly review specific elements in
a file.
[ 22 ] Reviewer’s Guide
Document Map: This convenient feature lets you use reference markers for an
index, a table of contents, or a table of authorities to view and navigate long
documents. The document map is a navigational window that displays links to
reference markers in your document.
Easy table of contents: In two steps, you can create a table of contents that
your readers can then use as a means to easily navigate your document.
Built-in image editor: Presentations Graphics X4 is an easy-to-use graphics
application that includes a broad range of bitmap-editing tools and special
effects. You can use Presentations Graphics X4 to create, edit, and enhance
original drawings and pictures for use with WordPerfect, Quattro Pro,
Presentations, on the Web, or elsewhere.
Word Count: With a simple click of the Count button on the application bar,
you can get an update on your document’s word count. In addition, the Word
Count feature gives you control over which document elements to include in the
count. For example, you can choose to include or exclude headers, footers,
comments, footnotes, endnotes, watermarks, text boxes, and box captions. You
can also get a word count on a selected block of text.
Effortless slideshow creation from an outline: This time-saver lets you
convert an outline created in WordPerfect or WordPerfect Lightning into a
Presentations slideshow. Each bullet in your outline becomes a slide, so you can
spend your time on the content of your presentation, not the formatting.
Metadata removal: WordPerfect X4 has a built-in feature that 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 Save Without
Metadata feature lets you decide what metadata to remove from your
documents — without requiring additional purchase or download.

Comprehensive legal tools: WordPerfect is an indispensable tool in legal
offices because of the tools you can’t get anywhere else. 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
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.
