Introducing Corel® WordPerfect® Office X5
The productivity market has changed a lot in the
last 20 years; over the last two years, the pace of
that change has been exponential. New players
and business models have emerged that have
expanded the scope of what is considered an office
productivity tool. And as functionality has
changed, so have users’ expectations. But as
always, the key to any new office suite is blending
tools that users have come to rely on with new
features that fit into today’s workflow.
The Internet is impacting every technology
market because of its ability to connect people
and provide a vehicle for collaboration. Market
research indicates that business and government
users are quickly adopting online tools to make
their organizations more collaborative and
efficient. Consumers, on the other hand, are
moving slowly towards online capabilities as they
weigh the value that online office tools offer
against the kind of tasks they regularly perform.
As enterprises, law offices, and government
departments have recognized and embraced
online/offline tools, Corel® WordPerfect® Office
has been at the forefront of integrating them
into the office productivity workflow. With these
users in mind, WordPerfect® X5 is designed to
mesh with an organization’s workflows and backend systems.
These days people are just as likely to turn to an
e-mail client for writing a note or memo. But
when there’s more at stake — when an
organization’s or a person’s reputation and image
are on the line — that’s when users turn to the
features that can only be found in traditional

productivity tools. While addressing emerging
trends is critical, so is adding to the value of the
core office suite.
Drawing upon a rich history in office productivity
innovation, Corel breaks new ground while still
improving the most critical areas in the traditional
office suite, so users can do more with words,
numbers, and ideas. Corel WordPerfect Office X5
redefines the office suite by providing:

The ability to use WordPerfect® X5 in lockstep
with document management systems, like
Microsoft® SharePoint®.


Web Services integration, so users have the
time-saving capability of creating documents
populated with data pulled from the Web.


Enhanced compatibility, allowing users to
open, edit, and save in Office Open XML
(OOXML) formats.


Nuance® PaperPort® 12 SE, giving users the
ability to easily annotate PDFs and integrate
with scanners.


Mozilla® Thunderbird® for WordPerfect®
Office, a new integrated e-mail client and
calendar that offers a tabbed e-mail view
and powerful search tools.


The new Reference Center, a redesigned
approach to the Help system and tutorials for
every part of the suite.

Reviewer’s Guide [ 1 ]

Users want to take advantage of new technologies,
and they also know that the work they produce
with an office suite has a huge impact on their
image and reputation. With that in mind,
WordPerfect Office X5 is built on four key areas
of focus. More tools that make life easier
allow people to focus on what really matters —
content. When it's more than a page, when
there’s more at stake, users demand collaborative
tools and formatting features that allow them to
give their documents just the right look. Fileformat freedom is also a cornerstone because
market-leading compatibility means users never
have to worry about file formats when sharing
their documents or working with others. And
because every dollar counts these days,
WordPerfect Office X5 is designed to be the right
office productivity tool at the right price.

More tools that make life easier
Users want to focus on the details of their work,
not the logistics of their office suite. They don’t
want an office suite that makes them work.
Instead, they need an office productivity tool that
works for them. The legendary formatting
features and intuitive user interface of
WordPerfect Office help users effortlessly turn
notes into powerful proposals and outlines into
compelling slideshows.
Longtime favorites that make document
formatting a breeze have been bolstered by a
variety of powerful productivity features,
including Web Services integration and PDF
annotation tools. WordPerfect Office X5 makes it
simple for anyone to produce creative, polished,
and professional results.

When it’s more than a page
WordPerfect Office X5 builds on a foundation of
more than 20 years of constant design
refinements to meet the ever-changing needs of
government, law offices, small businesses, and
home users. New Microsoft SharePoint
capabilities offer enterprise-class collaborative
features, making it easy for multiple users to finetune an important document. Delivering a
legendary user experience found nowhere else,
WordPerfect Office X5 provides unparalleled
control over multi-page documents and features

[ 2 ] Reviewer’s Guide

famous for their ability to deliver results when it
counts. Any e-mail client or word processor will
do when writing a note or memo. But when it’s a
multi-page report or when users simply need a
document to look just right, WordPerfect Office X5
stands out.
With a legacy of distinct features, such as Reveal
Codes and comprehensive legal tools,
WordPerfect Office X5 gives users the tools to
produce their very best work. When it’s more
than a page, that’s the time for WordPerfect
Office X5.

File-format freedom
Whether it’s in a law office or a home office,
people are exchanging files and collaborating
with others more than ever. Supporting more
than 60 file types, WordPerfect Office X5 is
designed to let users focus on the content of a
file, not its format. With the ability to open, edit,
and create OOXML files, WordPerfect Office X5
ensures easy collaboration with Microsoft Office
users. And enhanced compatibility with binary
Microsoft Office formats ensures that file content
displays as it was intended better than ever
But what really separates WordPerfect Office X5
from every other office productivity suite is its
unique PDF capabilities. Offering the ability to
work with scanned PDFs, along with built-in PDF
annotating, importing, editing and publishing
features, it’s the world’s first PDF office suite.

The right price
For less than half the price of Microsoft® Office,
WordPerfect Office X5 provides an incredible
variety of tools in one value-priced package.
WordPerfect Office X5 offers a range of powerful
productivity tools that users would otherwise
have to get from multiple sources: an office suite,
enterprise-class online/offline collaboration
features, and unique PDF tools. Backed by flexible
licensing, enterprise-class professional services
options, free online support, and a 20-plus-year
pedigree in the office productivity business, it’s
no wonder that WordPerfect Office remains the
leading alternative to Microsoft Office.

Customer profiles
Corel WordPerfect Office X5 has been developed
to meet the demands of the product’s core users
in the government, legal, and education markets,
as well as the needs of consumers and small
businesses. Each of these customers share a desire
to achieve more with their documents and realize
the savings of a value-priced office suite that
offers enterprise-class features.

WordPerfect Office X5 is specifically geared to the
needs of public sector organizations, offering
enterprise-class features, compatibility with
Windows® 7 and Microsoft® Office file formats,
and strong support for open standards. In
addition to its hassle-free licensing, WordPerfect
Office X5 also supplies an open architecture,
support for accessibility technologies, and flexible
workspace-customization options.

Law offices, from solo practitioners to the largest
firms, benefit from WordPerfect Office X5
through the suite’s advanced, intuitive
formatting; easily customizable workspaces and
templates; powerful redaction tools; robust PDF
capabilities, including support for PDF/A; tools
specific to the legal field; and support for key file
formats, such as WordPerfect, Microsoft Office,
PDF, and EDGAR®.

Small Business
WordPerfect Office X5 is designed to meet the
needs of value-conscious small and home-based
businesses, specifically those lacking a complex IT
infrastructure and having fewer than 50
employees who use PCs. These customers look for
software that lets them quickly create
professional-looking content and tools that help
them accelerate their businesses through better
output, better analysis, or better presentation.

Customers shopping for software for their home
PCs seek easy-to-use applications that help them
perform a wide range of tasks — and
WordPerfect Office X5 delivers. Home PC users
require compatibility with the latest Windows®
operating systems, the ability to open, save, and
edit in a variety of file formats, and the tools to
easily create good-looking documents without
being a software expert.

With professional-quality features, strong
collaboration capabilities, and a value price,
WordPerfect Office X5 is ideal for customers in
the education field, ranging from individual
students and teachers to educational institutions
of all sizes. These customers share the need for
low-cost software, flexible licensing, Microsoft
Office and PDF compatibility, and the ability to
work with and share a wide variety of content in
both legacy and emerging file formats.

The property bar in each application of

and center, saving time and effort.

Favorite! Browse By button: A hidden gem
in WordPerfect X5 and Quattro Pro X5, this handy
button lets users scroll through long documents
by heading, table, footnote, graphic, or other
object, allowing for quick review of specific
elements in a file.

Favorite! Word Count: With a simple click of
the Count button on the application bar, users
can get an update on a document’s word count.
In addition, the Word Count feature gives total
control over which document elements to include
in the count. For example, headers, footers,
comments, footnotes, endnotes, watermarks, text
boxes, and box captions can be included or
excluded in the word count. Users can also get a

has a built-in feature that helps ensure that users
never get caught with confidential or sensitive
information in their documents. Metadata is
information that lurks within office productivity

hidden text, and comments. This type of

metadata to remove from documents — without
requiring additional purchase or download.
