you are new to WordPerfect (and even if you are not) you should consider
obtaining a good book on the basic features of the program. Such books usually pay for themselves many times over by
decreasing frustration and increasing productivity. Once you learn the
basics, advanced information on this site will be more useful to you.

will quickly notice that some tips pages here are loaded -- even
"crammed" -- with information.
This is because this site, unlike a blog or other
interactive site, attempts to act as a reference
source of both troubleshooting tips and practical useage tips. It
gathers together information from various sources over many years (and
many versions of WordPerfect), and since no one can know if even a tiny
snippet of information might hold the answer to your question or
problem, the author diligently added the information as it became
Therefore, it is recommended that you scan a topic first to
get a general overview, then read the topic from beginning to end. You
never know what else you might learn that will save you time and
frustration in the long run.
And, as Roy "lemoto" Lewis
[Corel C_Tech] recently remarked: "An explanation in words
makes any activity seem more complex than it is in practice. To test
this, write out instructions for boiling a kettle or putting a letter
into an envelope. Or ride a bicycle."
Many of the above items are
downloadable ZIP files or PDF files. (What to do with them? See below.)

macro that automates the creation of an active hyperlink in a
WordPerfect document from an Internet address (URL) you select in your
browser or in a WordPerfect document. Updated 12/17/12.
A macro that lets you select material in the current document (or any
open WordPerfect document) and automatically clip (copy or move) it to
a separate temporary document. Clipped material is sequentially appended to the
temporary document with several user-defined separators. A dialog remains on screen until dismissed to allow
multiple clips. Updated 11/14/12.
"Delete empty Rows and/or Columns" - A "clean up" macro that deletes all empty rows or columns in the current table -- i.e.,
those without any visible (keyboard) characters. Particularly useful with large tables that span multiple pages. Updated 11/08/12 with new options and improvements.
A macro that divides any alphabetized list -- such as an index or directory
-- either with the appropriate capital letter between each section (A, B,
C, etc.) or with a blank line between each section. Includes several
formatting options. Updated
06/15/12 with several new options and improvements.
A macro that can place a line of text, the date, and/or the filename at
one of eight places around the edges of the page, outside the
page margins, on all pages or just specific pages. Easily
customizable. Updated 03/03/12 with an additional
option to include a time stamp, plus several minor code
A macro that can create either a
frequency list of each
of the words in the document (or in a selection of text), or an
alphabetical list of
words that have been used at least once (which can then be used to
create a concordance file for indexing a document). Uploaded
Quickly "toggles" a user-specified document stamp ON and OFF, such as
"Draft" or "Copy". The stamp (text with an optional date) is inside
a rotated box inside a watermark and is visible
outside page margins at the side of the page, parallel to the edge.
Easily customizable. Updated 08/27/11.
Creates a "background page fill" with your choice of color, outside
the page margins, on the current page or from the current
page forward, according to the specifications of the user. The spacing
to the page edges for each border can be set independently, and changes
in WordPerfect's page margins will not affect the border. [See next
item below for a similar macro.] Uploaded 08/01/11.
Creates a line border (single, double, dashed, thick, etc.) outside
the page margins or at any other specified location, around
the perimeter of the current page (or from the current page forward),
according to the specifications of the user. The spacing to the page
edges for each border can be set independently, and changes in
WordPerfect's page margins will not affect the border. Updated
A macro that quickly fills up label sheets, perforated card stock, and even regular paper
with duplicate copies of the same item -- great for return address
labels, business cards, numbered log sheets, etc. Just create a single
"master" copy in a document and play the macro. Updated 06/02/11 to
detect any changes in label's line spacing. [See
also BATES to add
fixed-width numbers to labels or cards.]
