► For help with the WordPerfect program or finding additional WordPerfect resources see the following paragraphs.

• Please be aware this website is not a WordPerfect "Help Desk" nor is it affliated with Corel.

Its purpose is to offer you some free tools and tips for WordPerfect and not to solicit or earn compensation of any kind. You might notice there are no advertisements or pop ups. (I don't like them, either.)

This site is supported solely by voluntary donations. All donations, regardless of their size, are greatly appreciated. They help me keep this site alive.

Please be aware that donations should be made without any expectation of, or reimbursement for, any action on my part -- or they would not be donations!

• This entire site is searchable from a small search field you will see at the top of the major pages (Home, Tips, Library, etc.). This uses Google's search engine.

You can also use Google's advanced search directly to search just this site: Enter your search terms in Google and then follow the items with site:wptoolbox.com.

Each page should be searchable from your browser with Ctrl+F while the page is on screen.

Please don't contact me simply to ask my help in finding something on this site. Yes, there's a lot here ... but your persistence should pay dividends in time and effort saved in the future.

If you still can't find what you need, see the next paragraphs.

• If you have a problem with WordPerfect, or need help with its features or functions, or need help with your own macros or templates:

Please read the Help Tips page for suggestions and links to internet resource sites such as WordPerfect Universe, which is a non-Corel affiliated site that is free to join. It is relatively active and almost any post related to WordPerfect typically results in one or more experts posting a reply --most often with a day or so. Among several forums, WordPerfect Universe has a Macros & Merges Forum where you can get help with your own macros and merges.

Also see Corel's OfficeCommunity.com.

[N.B.: I am retired and do not hire out for custom work or personal consultations.]

• Problem with an item on this site?

If you are having a problem with one of my macros please help me by "walking through" the problem with enough detail so that I can replicate your steps. Be sure to include the specific version (or "build") of WordPerfect you are using (the four-part decimal number as shown under your program's Help > About WordPerfect menu).

If something about a tip or trick you see here is not clear, then by all means let me know. I appreciate feedback that helps make this site more useable -- and your fellow WordPerfect users will appreciate it, too.

• About sending attachments:

Please do not send attachments (documents, pictures, macros, etc.) without asking me first. If you do, the e-mail message is automatically deleted on my end without ever being opened. (So if you don't get a response from me, you now know why.)

• About submitting suggestions, ideas, or macro code:

If you send me a suggestion or idea for a macro, please be aware that I cannot pay for suggestions or ideas, and in any case, ideas are not 'copyrightable' so I may (or may not) use them in any manner. I will give you credit (your name only; no other identifying information) unless you ask me not to do so.

If you send me a code snippet or functioning macro that you did not create, be sure to let me know where you got it; otherwise, it will be discarded. To use it, I will need the author's permission.

The USMC / Combat Helicopter Association's site is at www.popasmoke.com.

Some of my own photos of Operation ShuFly, the first major deployment of Marines into South Vietnam in April 1962, are posted on that site (see here and other pages). 

Several of them were included in a centerfold article in the April 2002 issue of Leatherneck Magazine.

For a video commemoration of Operation ShuFly (50th anniversary) see www.marines.mil here.

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." George Santayana
- U.S. philosopher, poet (1863–1952)

"People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf." ...
"The quickest way of ending a war is to lose it."
George Orwell
- English essayist, novelist, satirist and author of "1984" (1903 - 1950)

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
John Stuart Mill
- English economist & philosopher (1806 - 1873).
Lest you think this quotation reflects a conservative or "right-wing" position, Mr. Mill was an ackknowledged liberal (in the classical sense).
