tips, and templates for Corel®
WordPerfect® for Windows®
All macro code is viewable
just like any WordPerfect document or template, and most are annotated
to help those who wish to craft their own custom macros. (See here
for some links to other resources.) For information on how to download
them from this site and use them on your own system, see here.
The tips on this site are for a wide range of people, from beginners to advanced users. You can simply skip over the advanced ones until you are more comfortable with the program.You will notice that some tips pages here are loaded -- even "crammed" -- with information. This is because this site, unlike a blog or other interactive site, was designed as a repository ("toolbox") of both practical How To tips and troubleshooting methods. It is the result of over 20 years of personal use and customization of 12 major versions of WordPerfect (as of 2015), as well as information gleaned during that time from other users on various WordPerfect sites while helping them solve problems or exchange tips.
Since no one can know if even a tiny snippet of information might hold the answer to your question or a solution to your problem, the author diligently added the information as it became available. (A good example of this is the page on Repairing WordPerfect documents and templates.)
Therefore, consider at least scanning a topic to get a general overview. You never know what else you might learn that will save you time and effort in the long run.
Finally, don't be put off by the sheer volume of information on these pages. As Roy "lemoto" Lewis [Corel C_Tech] 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."
Because this site requires a large amount of time to keep it updated, and because the author is retired with other things to do, it isn't an interactive "help desk". Here are some general tips when you have problems or you are seeking more information about how to do something in WordPerfect and you haven't had much luck using the program's built in Help (F1 key).
A PC Magazine Review (09/15/14) of WordPerfect Office X7 references the Toolbox site and a particular macro ("...if you want to replace underlined text with italics..."). It is Replace Codes which is downloadable on the Other Authors page here.
