    3-0 out of 5 stars Missing features of previous versions
    Visio 2003 Pro is a good product, but the fact that several key features are gone is the reason for a 3 star rating.

    I use Visio 2003 Pro for general diagramming and for informal data modeling and process modeling in the course of developing system requirements.I used the simple data flow model diagram for years in Visio 2000, but 2003 has removed the "model" capabilities; it's just a picture now with no reusable components.

    Pluses:
    Good screen layout options
    Still reverse-engineers databases
    Better shape manipulation
    Shape transparency

    Minuses:
    Removed "explorer" and modeling capabilities of Data Flow Model diagram
    Does not generate DDL (Data Definition Language) anymore (need Visual Studio)
    No longer exports to ERWin ERX files
    Does not save to Visio 5 format (only 2002)
    Removed Auto-Discovery
    Removed a bunch of file converters and import tools

    I recommend looking at Microsoft's "What you won't find in Microsoft Office Visio 2003" found at http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/assistance/HA010857571033.aspx.


    5-0 out of 5 stars Does everything but tie your shoelaces for you
    I was able to turn out a complicated flowchart polished enough for professional training purposes in just two hours - despite having never used this kind of software before, and having no assistancewhatsoever besides the program's own Help files. Now *that's* ease-of-use.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Beware!!!Not an upgrade for Visio 2003 Standard
    I just purchased this thinking that "of course I can upgrade to Visio 2003 Pro from Visio 2003 Standard".Nope. This is just plain silly. I still am trying to figure out if I can even upgrade my Visio *2003* Standard version to Professional.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Valuable Upgrade
    I have been using the Visio diagramming software since the 2000 version.In my mind this upgrade is the best I have purchased.

    The interface with the rest of the Office XP 2003 Suite is vastly improved.I can now take a diagram created in Visio and drop it into Word documents, PowerPoint Presentations and e-mails without having to reformat it.In the past the transfer was never clean.

    Once the diagram is embedded, I can emphasize and clarify key points, gather input from team members and even share documents using SharePoint services.This is a huge timesaver for me.

    If you embed your diagrams in other documents, you will love this upgrade.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Powerful, Versatile, Sophisticated Business Diagramming
    Visio has always been an excellent solution for technical diagramming. Version 2003 is no exception and improves upon its predecessor with support for the web and integration with other Office applications. The program still lacks certain elements of Microsoft Office which I feel concerned about. Users are able to import Native Auto CAD drawings directly into Visio, and use the Visio tools to further customize and edit drawings to their hearts content. You can create custom stencils save them and share with other Visio users over a corporate network. You can export diagrams as a webpage so that users who don't have Visio installed locally on their machine can View diagrams through web browser at different resolutions with ease. The program enables IT Adminstrators to create Diagrams for Active Directory role outs for Windows 2000 Server and Server 2003. SQL Server or other third party database products such as Oracle and IBM DB2 can use the Visio functionality to outline a companies storage of data through active digrams that automate how data is stored and used. You can create simple project management task, and also export other Visio digrams to PowerPoint and further edit within PowerPoint or Word.Other features include searching for stencils online in the program, which makes it easy for you to find that particular diagram. Visio still lacks certain elements such as native support for WordArt. Overall, this upgrade is a must have for existing Visio 2000 or 5.0 users, but some 2002 users might not see any need for some of the functionality and might wait first to see if their diagramming and network infrastructure needs demand the new functionality and technology that Visio 2003 has to offer. ...

    1-0 out of 5 stars Won't even install without manual hack
    So, I wanted some software help in writing my very first ever business plan. This one came highly recommended from reviews here, and elsewhere. So I bought a copy.
    Guess what? Won't install. Get "Error 1935". I click on 'Contact Us' from the installer. Tech Support? It's a toll call-- no 800 number. So I go to the web page. Track down an article on this problem. The Fix? About an hour's worth of manual labor on my part that *might* fix it-- Palo Alto Software would really like to hear from me if it works.
    Not likely. This is being returned today.
    1 star for putting a product on the floor that won't install, and then offering a fix that requires 21 manual steps, including a diagnostic boot in Windows XP.
    I'll just write up my business plan in Word, thank you very much.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not Wallet Compatible
    Let me start by saying that I'm no computer expert (far from it) and that Power Point 2003 is a good program that is already reaping rewards for me. BUT I have to say that this version is too high for me and that one should buy this in a package deal (Microsoft Student Edition) if you don't need all the "extra" features that are basically useless for someone using this stuff at home. Through a series of events (or calamity, as my wallet put it) I ended up buying Microsoft Office Basics 2003 that came with (a) Word 2003 (b) Excel 2003 and (c) Outlook but that didn't have Powerpoint included. So, I thought that I'd be able to get an Upgrade addition to work on my computer because the box lists a series of Office editions that would be upgradeable. When I got it home, however, I found that it didn't work with Office 2003 and that I'd have to get the extended version. It would work if I had an older computer with older software, but newer stuff required a stand alone piece of software if it isn't included in the bundle.

    When I went back with this quandary, the price of this program cost more than my bundle pack of software and I found myself a bit unhappy because I could either (a) buy this overpriced thing by forking out almost two hundred bucks or (b) buy a student addition that basically meant repurchasing all the programs I had and forking out hundred + dollars. I opted for the second, not really happy with the choice but needing the presentation power in my hands and not wanting to pay too much, and I kept thinking that this piece of software is wayyy too expensive for the average laptop.

    The moral of the story: If you need the extended pack, then you have a specific reason brought to the table. If you don't know a reason you'd have to have a stand-alone version then you probably don't need it, and should buy the compact versions and SHOP WISELY - avoiding oversight.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great package for work and efficiency.
    I bought this product about a month ago and iWork made my life more efficient with all the easy functionality and integration that Apple has created. It is fully integrated with .Mac and your on-going web\work sites. The main application I use is Keynote which is an easy to use presentation sofware that places all the needed functionality for a quick presentation. Keynote has a very easy to use interface and similar functions to Pages which makes the transition from app to app very easy. The only downside I thought was the ramp up time to understand and get use to the apps.
    Recommend it for all Mac users new and veteran.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Don't Underestimate This Program.
    A number of reviewers have commented upon how easy this program is and, I suppose, in one sense it is, especially if you stick to using the templates.However, as one who has had occasion to work with "Adobe Pagemaker," this program can do sophisticated page layout and, as such, there will be a learning curve for the inexperienced.

    But, the User Manual is good and there are good books coming out, like one from Visual Start in July, that will help people learn.

    It is wrong to think of this program as a word processor "in competition with" Word."MS Word" is a robust word processor; "Pages," as its name implies, is a page layout program.Having also worked with "MS Publisher," the real point of comparison and not "MS Word," "Pages" far exceeds "Publisher" in capabilities and yet for relatively simple layouts is as easy as "Publisher" to use.

    I have not as yet put any real strain on the program, but at first blush, on my Powerbook G4 1.5, speed of operations is just fine.Yes, as a few reviewers have pointed out, some of the palettes could be more elegantly combined.One tends to get a clutter of open palettes.But, these are refinements that will be made in future editions, I am sure.

    Bottom line: If you want to layout pages with a lot of the sophistication possible in the more expensive "Quark" and "PageMaker" programs; if you want to be able to export your documents to universal portable PDF file format and print out beautiful documents; if you want to pay, basically, only about $40 for these benefits ["Keynotes," the other half of iwork represents another $40], then buy "Pages."

    And, if you are a novice with respect to not only page layout programs but also to very robust word programs like "Word," don't expect that everything will be simple.You will have to learn, but you will be rewarded relatively quickly.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I almost didn't buy it....
    I thought, "I have MS Office for the Mac, why do I need iWork?" Was I wrong!

    Okay fine I suppose I don't really NEED it. But it is a great program, and worth the price. The ability to export my work as a .pdf file is worth the price by itself. The Pages interface is much better, cleaner than Word. And the templates are suprisingly useful. I created a web page by costomizing a template and exporting it as HTML. I twas easy and quick and the result looked great. Most of the people I work with are PC users and because they were unfamiliar with pages the web Page looked fresh, not like a modified copy of someone elses work.

    I use my Mac for research mostly and the ability to save documents as .pdf files is very valuable as they are searchable. With Tigers ability to search the text within a .pdf I can now save my work as a .pdf and later find everytime a particular work appears in the fines I've created. This has made cross-refrecing very easy and fast. I now use a program called Pyramid to create a "mind map" of my work and create links from the "map" to refrences in the .pdfs.

    I don't use Keynote as much. I t more visially appealing than Powerpoint and pretty easy to use. The ability to use Quicktime movies in the presentation is helpful and the ability to export as a Powerpoint file is nice.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Great program if Microsoft can develop an imitation
    Keynote and Pages, the two applications included in iWork, were flawless under the Panther operating system. The Keynote app has always suffered from its inability to share with PC users. Oh yeah, I know I can convert a Keynote file to Powerpoint, .swf, QuickTime, or PDF, but the problem is that, especially when converting to PowerPoint, Keynote loses all its buttery-rich goodness. It's a PowerPoint problem, I realize, but without a Keynote viewer, there's no way around it. Thus, Mac folks must rely on Microsoft for slide presentations if they don't want to lug around their Mac laptop.

    Also, installing Tiger will mess up the purchased Keynote templates you have saved. Even reinstalling them won't help.

    My humble advice is to wait a couple of years until Apple fixes the bugs in Tiger, then MAYBE think about using a Mac. Until then, I'm switching back from a Mac to a PC.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Big time winner!
    iWork comes with two programs, Pages (a word processor) and Keynote (Apple's version of PowerPoint).Both of these programs are very simple to use and very effective.Without a doubt, there are better programs available, but their cost several hundred dollars more and for the average user don't provided more bank for the buck.

    When I first turned on Pages I thought "How cheesey!"But as I got to using it I found my first impression was totally wrong.It's simple appearance is very deceptive.This is a word processing program that can do everything that is needed for ordinary personal documents and beyond.You have to be willing to explore the program to discover its gems, but once you learn were things are you will find it a very fast and easy to use.The real value of the program is its desk top publishing.The 40 some templates let you create profession grade newsletters, journals, resumes, invitations, marketing brochures, and many other kinds of documents.This is worth the price of the software alone.It seamlessly works with your iPhoto, iTunes and iMovies.This is one powerful piece of software.With it you can produce commercial grade color brochures or newsletters at an entry level price.

    Keynote makes wonderful multimedia presentations, and like Pages is seamlessly integrated with iPhoto, iTunes and iMovies.If you are using graphics or want to import photos into your presentation, Keynote is significantly easier, quicker, and simpler to use that PowerPoint.You can't miss with this program.You can even save you presentation as a PowerPoint, Quicktime, or PDF file or post it on the internet for all to see with the easy of a single click.

    I have used both Microsoft Word and PowerPoint and keep them on my hard drive but rarely use them.As my skill with Pages and Keynote has grown I have found them to be more than sufficient in producing quality documents from personal letters, teaching handouts, to professional grade overhead presentations.
    For the cost, iWorks cannot be beat!And you will not be disappointed.

    Do not buy this program. Version 8 is a complete rewrite to support Unicode and is definitely not ready for prime time. We tried version 8.0.1 where I work and computers are crashing, libraries are not opening up and saving properly on network drives, the program itself is slow and clunky and annoying even when it's working.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the C-Pen 800C
    I'm measuring, first and foremost, ease and precision of scanning. Speed of scanning and ease of installation on the computer are, in my mind, about the same for both this, the Wizcom QuickLink Elite, and the C-Pen 800C. They differ sufficiently, however, in the primary question of ease and quality of scanning. For the record, I bought both at the same time, with the intent of keeping the better of the two. You can just go ahead and buy the C-Pen 800C.
    I have had one horrible experience with a pen scanner by Siemens, the "Pocket Reader." It was truly useless. It scanned so poorly that I just put it aside. By the time I though to return it, Siemens was no longer making it, and I couldn't get customer service here in the U.S.
    The Wizcom QuickLink Elite is not so bad. It's serviceable. I don't think it lives up to its 95% accuracy guarantee, but perhaps meets a 90% threshold, measured impressionistically. It's interface is also reasonable and satisfactory.
    However, the C-Pen 800C is even more precise, truly approaching 95%. Moreover, if you discount errors in spacing from this accuracy percentage, its precision is even higher. Whereas the Wizcom is just as likely to make a content error, misread letters, etc., the 800C's errors are more likely to be the absence of a space when there should be one. A rare missed space doesn't make you puzzle over the text when you come back to it two months later.
    C-Pen is also lighter, and it's rechargeable, so while it's more expensive, in the long run, you'll save on batteries.
    Both have comparable single-language dictionaries, though Wizcom has more built in or for free (C-Pen allows you one free dictionary, including bilingual ones). Wizcom is a only a bit slower on the uptake, but significantly more likely to warn you "Scan too fast." I've never had that from C-Pen, and again, the precision at any speed is appreciably better with C-Pen.
    Both have comparable PC and PDA compatibility capacity.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Too much capability can be a bad thing....
    I chose this device over the competitor products based on (1) ergonomics, (2) local device controls, and (3) independent operation from the PC.Unfortunately, the device software has fallen prey to the age-old issues of any device that tries to perform "smart" syncing operations.It gets confused...

    My goal was to use the pen as a remote scanning device and then be able to upload the scanned text to either my home PC or my laptop.I installed the desktop application on both machines with no apparent problems.However, after successfully syncing with one machine, a subsequent attempt to sync with the second machine failed miserably.One such failure caused me to permanently lose 2 hours worth of scanned input.I was horrified.

    I need a scanning pen that is exactly just that.A scanner.I don't need a smart device that wants to 'remember' what I've done or what I want to do.I don't get this type of behavior with my digital camera or my flatbed scanner, so I don't expect it from a pen.When you perform an alleged upload operation, the software tries to write information back into the pen.If I'm "uploading" then I don't want anything to be "downloaded" into the pen... period.This is the bane of my tests and the failures.

    There are certainly other factors that affected decision to return the equipment to the manufacturer for refund, such as sluggish processing times between scans, and extremely poor ability to read Times New Roman (note: all their samples are in Arial, but find a textbook that isn't TNR!).I could still have lived with these ideosyncracies if it weren't for the high risk of data loss.This was intended to be a time saver, but it simply wasn't.

    My rating here is based on the hardware.This device could be vastly improved with a change in software philosophy.Just upload the data and don't second-guess the operator.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Portable, useful, and easy to use
    I received QuickLink Elite pen today and have been testing it for the past 6 hours. Now I am finished, I would like to share my thought about this device with you. The box came with the content as described by Amazon. My surprise was that the 135 page color manual, I thought those were extinct! That is in addition to the PDF one in the CD.

    Installation on Windows XP Pro. SP2 (Tablet edition) went smoothly, the instructions on the self run CD were easy to follow. You basically install the driver for the cable [serial at the device connector to USB (II in my case) at the PC end], then you install the desktop application which is a very basic utility that lists the files on your pen, and allows you to communicate, change settings, transfer data, and add software to your pen. Once you install the software, you will be asked to connect the device to the computer to start the communication. Initially I had a problem connecting to the device because it conflicted with Bluetooth serial ports. So I disabled the Bluetooth serial ports and removed some extra unused serial COM ports from the computer device manager. I reinstalled the pen drive from the CD, restarted the computer but before I connect again I did one more IMPORTANT step that is not mentioned anywhere. You Baud rate on the pen (go to settings, communications, baud rate) must be the same as your computer COM port (go to device manager, right click on the new COM port), choose a rate, in my case 57600 worked best. After that I managed to exchange files, install software to the pen. In addition, It tried the IrDA with my laptop, the text file was transferred instantly. PDA (iPAQ) recognize the device but transfer of files needed third-party software (Peacmaker $15). In their website, they say there will be an upgrade where third party will not be needed.

    After that scanning the text went smoothly, I also scanned small image ( max 8 mm wide), installed the tables software on the pen, scanned directly on the PC ... all went very well. I scanned a type font 10 textbook, out of the total 543,24 were mis-recognized (some missing one letter, some had capital letter in the middle, while others were just a mess). That is about 95.5% accuracy, not bad, considering that I get about 85% with a flatbed scanner. It takes me about 5 to 6 seconds per line (about 5 minutes per page), so this is truly for text snippets rather than a whole page scanning. Image scanning is useful for signatures, Greek letters, etc. Quality is just OK, you can also scan tables, business cards (to outlook), URLs (get sent to favorites) with the included add-ins on the CD, and bar codes (additional downloads from the wizcom website). All in all I will recommend this device for students, researchers, & people who type slow or rather collect different set of texts from books, journals, etc. It fits 1000 pages internal memory, besides scanning directly to your word processor. It has built in English dictionary, good for language students. It also read aloud any text that is scanned (I do not see the use of this one) but the pen comes with earphone with volume controls.
    All in all, this pen turn out as it was described and I think it is a keeper. Thanks for reading this long review and I hope it helped someone.

    1-0 out of 5 stars TOO SLOW, TOO MANY BUGS!
    This is, on paper, an excellent idea and has lots of potential. Unfortunately, it SLOOOOOWS your system down to a crawl -- which is frustrating to the point where I don't want to use the product.

    As I said, its a great idea for me. I have been searching for a product that could help me track my many projects without the overkill of a MS Project.

    It also has many annoying bugs that need to be addressed.

    The program has great potential and if it worked as it claims I would give it 5 stars -- but, it can't live up to its promises and until Intuit addresses these -- DON'T BUY IT!!

    Too bad -- I love Quickbooks and am disappointed in this product, especially since this is version 2.0.

    1-0 out of 5 stars I wish I had that slow, unstable, featureless version
    Spare a thought for us international users, who can't even get the slow, unstable and featureless version 2.0 of the product.

    I am based in Ireland, and so require the UK version of this product to integrate with Quickbooks. Unlike the US version, this costs 200 euros per person, three times the price of the US version.

    To add to the insult, only version 1.0 is available in the UK. The difference is, version 1.0 does not synchronise emails. I know a team member sent an email, but I can't see it. This product has zero value. It is a shared address book.

    I contacted Quickbooks support (April 2005), and was informed that they "are not shipping version 2.0 in the UK, because they only started shipping versin 1.0 in September." This out of date version is clearly selling like a dog, but they will wait until the shelves clear before shipping the 2004 version. With luck, that will be out of date by then too.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Save your money (and time)
    I am very sorry to say that all the bad reviews are correct. I thought they were being to hard on Quickbooks. I thought that maybe, if you took your time and didn't expect too much, that the software could help you say organized to some extent.
    My apologies go out to all the reviewers. I was soooo wrong! I spent hours trying to make this work for me. All I got was messed up customer records in quickbooks & outlook, which took me hours to fix.
    Even when using the program, there are problems. Example - I emailed an attachment by clicking on "Email" in the contact's file, he could not open it. If I send the same attachment through Outlook directly, no problem. What's the use in having that email ability if it doesn't work.
    When you transfer names from Quickbooks to this program, the address goes under "Bill To" - OK. Now sync to Outlook - hey, there is no "Bill To", so guess what - you get NOTHING! So now I have 1800 names in my outlook with no info.
    I could go on, but you get the point. This program would be bad even as a beta version, but this is version 2!

    1-0 out of 5 stars THE WORSE!
    As insulted as we were to buy 5 licenses for version 1.0, version 2.0 is still as buggy as version 1.0.Total waste of time, money, and cdrom space!

    1-0 out of 5 stars The bigger they get the worse they are.
    I purchased this software after extensive conferencing with "Quick Books SALES STAFF, all good and fine, they pick up the phone spend unlimited time with you. Tell you everything is fine answer all your questions

    Now when you purchase the product there is the RUB!!!!

    #1 the product does not work, in any shape or form. Tey as one might.
    # CSR is off shore so you are on hold over an hour. Than they tell you that even though you called the # on package , for some reason ( heaven only knows) they are not the right department ( if they are not the right deptpartment why do they put that # on the box, to call) , Then they say the right dept is # an other # and they transfer you. Well you guessed it, the "other dept" is closed.

    If they planned to make you miserable they could not have succeeded better.

    Take your money and not give you a thing for it, These poeple should have some serious competetion or maybe this is the American Way now.

    Good luck if you BUY anything FRom THEM!!!!

    1-0 out of 5 stars For Amateurs
    I am a professional marketing manager, and this product was a great disappointment. We purchased it because of the great reviews, but I found it to be very cumbersome. The entire program is created in some sort of Web design software, and your documents are formatted in HTML. If you do not like the plain-jane layout that it offers you, YOU MUST GO IN AND EDIT THE HTML CODE to change it. In addition, the entire program was designed around marketing PRODUCTS so if you have a service based industry, or combination, you will spend great amounts of time deleting and adding categories. I finally gave up on the program and transferred everything over to Word. The only thing good about this software is the samples it provides, which I could have obtained free from a textbook. I wish I had my money back.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not For Students
    This program works great if you are trying to open a business from the beginning, but not for writing a plan for an existing business. I had to write a marketing plan for a class and it was helpful but there are many more resources out there that would be better.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Marketing Resource
    I was referred to this product through a contact at the American Marketing Association.What a great piece of advice!

    This is impressive software from every perspective.I found it easy to use, the content is excellent throughout, and the sample marketing plans were amazing.Check out "Interior Views" for example.The other resources, including the associated book, were also valuable for me.

    My marketing plans looks great and I would not have been able to accomplish this task so efficiently without this software.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The New Version is Even Better
    The latest version of Marketing Plan Pro has everything you need to create a solid marketing plan, and now it has an impressive library of sample plans.I found a couple plans that were very helpful to me as I created mine.

    This sofware saved me hours and my marketing plan looks awesome!

    5-0 out of 5 stars It made me look like a marketing guru
    I first learned about Marketing Plan Pro through a class I took that used Kotler's "Marketing Managment" text where the software is mentioned.This software was so helpful in creating a marketing plan, I just can't imagine doing one without it.Great wizards, good sample plans, and the graphics it created for me were incredible.

    The plan looks great, my boss was blown away, and it is the easiest way for me to keep my marketing plan current and useful.

    I recommend it without hesitation. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars NOT for a network printer
    We have had Corel WP for years.We recently upgraded from 8 to 12 (we're a non profit) and 12 barely works with our network printer.I've even spoken with COrel techs who've instructed me on how to set up documents to print to our printer-- it is so awkward a procedure (not to mention totally dumb).What's worse is that it just doesn't work all the time.THings are SO bad that I am constantly called to try to figure out why it won't print AGAIN.We wish we'd thought to get the trial version first!Many others have told me how horrible Corel's products are getting.Nothing but trouble for us!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Better Word Processor
    I don't have much use for anything in the suite except WordPerfect. I've been using WordPerfect since before Windows, when, if you were lucky enough to afford a 4 color screen, the word processor could display a blue or a green background, displayed ASCII characters, there were no fonts except Courier, and laser printers cost a small fortune. I work for a number of attorneys -- WordPerfect is the software of choice for wordprocessing in most offices I've worked in because, in my opinion, it is the better product for the job. It has many features specifically designed for law office use incuding the pleading macro, a toolbar for legal work, and tables of authorities and table of contents designed for legal documents.It may also be because WordPerfect has been around for so long that everyone just migrated without changing. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

    When WordPerfect came out, it took over the market. When MicroSoft came out with Word, I had the feeling they did everything they could to make it different from WordPerfect just to use its power in the industry to take over the wordprocessing market, just like MicroSoft did with every other good software idea to come along. (e.g., Mozilla/Netscape, Norton Utilities.) I hate Microsoft's stupid animated paperclip -- it makes me feel like a 7 year old. "It looks like your writing a letter ..." Go away! It was amusing to watch it roll itself up and spit itself through some imaginary pinch rollers when you print a document, but only once. By the fourth time that stupid paperclip reared its animated eyeballs and interfered with my workflow, I wanted to tell MicroSoft to wrap that annoying the paperclip around their cable modems!! I'm an adult!

    I have two versions of Word and WordPerfect 5, 7, 8, 10 and 12. (I just threw out 5.2 for Windows and 7 when I moved.) I use the MicroSoft product only when absolutely necessary -- usually because someone else needs the document in that format.

    In my experience, Word does one thing better than WordPerfect -- and it is a biggie -- it works with HTML documents better than the Corel WordPerfect. With Word, you can copy an entire page from the Web and paste it directly into Word and it will pull most of the pictures from the Web. WordPerfect does not go and get the pictures. HEAR THAT COREL!?! However, I don't often copy entire web pages into my documents.

    The reason I like WordPerfect so much is that it types more like a typewriter. You can set up and use styles if you want, but you can also just hit the tab button to indent the first line of a paragraph. If you want to change the margins for the entire document, you simply change the margins. The rest of the document follows the change. You don't have to change each paragraph.

    In addition, you can get to the formatting codes. Hit Alt-F3 and the screen splits in half and displays all of the formatting codes -- bold, underline, tabs, indent codes, line spacing, column on and off, etc. Then you know exactly what you have done and fix and format it easily. This ability has proven useful on several occasions when clients, who insist on using Word for legal documents, cannot cajole Word to put their unruly documents into the format they want. (This is particularly true when using OCR with scanned or faxed documents.) By opening the Word document in WordPerfect, I have been able to use "Alt-F3" to identify the errant codes and quickly repair them.The ability to easily replace formatting codes becomes extremely powerful when combined with global search and replace commands.WordPerfect can then save the document in Word/RTF format with the problems fixed.

    Working with columns is also easier. You turn on columns and tell it how many colums you want, set the width of each, and the space between them, and away you go. You have four types of columns to work with -- newspaper, balanced newspaper, parallel and parallel with block protect. It handles columns much better. I've tried the other software, and if you change text or printers, you can never get the columns to line up the way you want it. With Word, each colum change or page change seems to introduce new control codes, and a complete set of formatting, and you can never get it back the way you want it. I once tried to scan in a list of names and addresses which were in two or three columns into Word. Each name and address was placed in its own text box. I could never work with it.

    The most prominent change between WP 10 and 12 is the workspace manager which allows you to switch between legal mode, original (classic) WordPerfect 5.1 mode (with the blue screen), legal mode, standard WordPerfect for Windows mode and Word mode. They have also included the ability to publish to Adobe PDF, HTML, and RTF/Word formats.

    This is full featured software, and does everything I need. It handles tables, tables of content, tables of authorities, column sorts -- everything I need in a law office. Graphics can be dropped in with a click of the mouse. I'm considered to be almost an expert, and there is a lot I don't know!

    Take time to get to know the software and you'll be glad you purchased it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Better than MS Office
    WordPerfect 12 is better than Office in that it is far more user friendly, has more features and is faster and less likely to crash.You can also use WordPerfect on most operating systems, which you cannot do with MS Office.People ask, why use Corel when you can just use Office?The answer is that it is better in every single way than Office, and if you don't believe it, try it yourself.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Far superior to any other office package!
    So, the "whole world" used Microsoft Office.Why should you buy this if it is just the same thing?First, I am pretty sure this is a bit cheaper than microsoft.Second, you can save any Corel file into office format to be compatible with the world.Third, Corel customer support is much more friendly. Finally, The corel software package is far superior.Specifically . . .

    Wordperfect:The word processor that is far superior to MS Word or any other that I have used.If you do nothing but type plain text, anything will work for you, even wordpad.However, as soon as you want to FORMAT with columns, tables, graphics, special characters, or anything fancy, WORDPERFECT is the best.You can type alt-F3 within the program to "reveal codes."This makes it so that you can see exactly what the program is doing. I "fluent" in literally dozens of different word processors and nothing gives you the power and control of wordperfect.I can get the job done with anything, but wordperfect saves me tons of time, and makes my life so much easier.

    Quatro Pro:A spreadsheet program similar to microsoft excel.I do prefer this program over excel, but honestly I don't find it any better than excel.One advantage over excel is everybody else is using it.

    Presentations: Similar to Mirosoft Powerpoint.This is another superior program.It can open powerpoint files.The huge advantage is the ease of use and the power to create great presentations in a little time.Often a program like this is something on your laptop, in which case, it doesn't matter if you have Powerpoint or not.If you create you presentations at home and present them on another computer, Presentations will save things in powerpoint format.You can download a free powerpoint viewer to make sure the conversion really worked.Every conversion I have ever done worked perfectly.

    Conclusion, the corel suit is a better program.The program is faster, more efficient, more user friendly, makes smaller file sizes, and overall causes less stress.My advice: buy it!

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best word processor for a bargain price
    WordPerfect is more intuitively user-friendly than MS Word, and really grows on you as you realize this.Example #1: the "Reveal Codes" View option, which you'll love if you ever have trouble figuring out a formatting complexity.Example #2: Menu items are laid out logically - such as page formatting, which is listed under the "Format" menu, not the "File" menu!Example #3: the User Agreement gives you more leeway on how you use the program.There are more examples, but the best advice I can give is to try it - it's a real bargain. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars So simple to use it's laughable
    Two months ago I bought Quarkxpress 6 hoping I would be able to teach myself how to use it for my church newletter.Needless to say,after 3 weeks the only thing I became really good at was getting frustrated at how impossiblly hard it was to master it or even productively use it without some kind of professional trainning.And then I went to Bestbuy saw the Publisher Pro and decided to risk $79.Now two days later I consider myself somewhat an expert in desktop publishing.The 12 page very-first -class looking newsletter I made is at the printers and all indications are that its going to be a hugely successful project.Unless you are looking for something NASA would shop for this software is a real STEAL at the price.Highly recommended for anyone with high expectations little patience and a limited budget.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Value!
    Nova is a company that buyssoftware from other companies and then they jazz it up with templates, other software, graphics, etc.For the end user this can mean a great deal.You may not get the latest version but you will get solid software with lots of extras.I usually can figure out what software the product really is, not so with this one.What I can tell you is that it is pretty high end as it offers tons of features not found in lesser packages including the ability to create PDF files and Postscript (with color separations) for professional publishing.It also has high end features like the ability to create a table on contents.Add to all of this a quality photo editor.The photo editor sort of looks like an older version of PhotoPaint.It doesn't have wizards (like automatic color balance)...it is strickly manual.With that said, it does has higher end controls like "levels and curves."Remember that your getting this program for FREE.Add to all of this TONS of professionally designed ready made templates and (they say, I have not counted!)100,000 clip art images.Some of the images are really fun like those BW ad people from the 1950s.Nova has a $30 competative rebate going on too making Publisher Pro super cheap.For years I have used MS Publisher 2000 for most of my publishing needs (including producing a company newsletter).I think this product offers a lot more than Microsoft Publisher.A definate buy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Choice!
    I purchased this software because it had the formats required by the professional printers I use.I have been even more pleased with how easy it is to use this program.It is much like the program by Microsoft I was accustom to working.Within one hour of starting this program I had a professional design laid out for my client ready to go to the printer.It is much more user-friendly than Corel Draw 12 or Adobe products.I am very pleased with my purchase.I would definitely recomment this product. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best software product for small business !
    This is a great software product for small business owners. It has dozens of forms, sample letters, and worksheets to help with forming a business, hiring employees, borrowing and lending money, leasing space, etc. In addition to the forms, it includes the full text of five Nolo books: Legal Guide for Starting & Running a Small Business, Tax Savvy for Small Business, Everyday Employment Law, Marketing Without Advertising, and Leasing Space for Your Small Business. The books alone make this an amazing deal.

    Given Nolo's reputation for plain English self-help materials, this is a must-have for any business owner's computer. The peace of mind in being able to look up basic legal, human resources, and tax questions has made this an excellent purchase for me.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Not Very Useful
    I thought I'd better warn people before the fake glowing reviews come in.

    This is not very useful software.Quicken seems to be on a robbing spree.I order a lot of items on Amazon(and wasted a lot of money) but have never written a review.This software is garbarge, a library or your Secretary of state website, or IRS website will have all these forms.The software gives you NO freedom whatsoever and are nearly unpresentable.They are just TOO generic.This software gave me an empty feeling of loss.I wrote this review so nobody else would waste their hard earned money.
