Editor of WPUNews (at WPUniverse.com),
This review is from: Special Edition Using WordPerfect Office X3 (Paperback)This book is a good update where old hands can learn about recently added or significantly modified features. For instance, a major new addition is the option to save a file (whether converted to MSWord or not) without metadata -- a legal necessity that was surely on Tony Blair's wish list -- for securing the confidentiality that businesses and liberal professionals prize. Or another example, the improved PublishToPDF feature now works for QP as well as WP, for basic importing as well as exporting.
But new-timers will also be able to discover WPO X3 by consulting Acklen & Gilgen's book. Those who have learned word-processing by using MSWord will find help for making the switch (pp. 32ff, not to mention the information via a special item in WP's Help). The authors have repeatedly emphasized the improved compatibility suite-wide with other applications (WP/MSW, WP/Excel/SQL/Paradox and Presentations/PowerPoint).
Sections in the book are organized coherently so that... Read more

New features of WordPerfect X3 are listed on pages 2 to 7. Note that I don't consider the addition of the Yahoo! toolbar, and the Y! icon (which I couldn't get rid of - it kept reappearing) as enhancements. This is clearly a commercial move rather than purely an enhancement, which brings me to my only complaint with this book, it seems to lack a critical edge. Not once in the whole manual is...

Special Edition Using WordPerfect Office X3,
This review is from: Special Edition Using WordPerfect Office X3 (Paperback)When I say comprehensive, I mean COMPREHENSIVE. There is no stone unturned in this volume. It has answered many questions that I have needed answered to date. I am a long standing WordPerfect user, and I am still leaning how to use this excellent program. This book has in large part been the reason I have progressed as well as I have. Highly recommended, but it is expensive even with the savings available from Amazon.
