OK on the spell-check word addition. Some things I like about WP: It
does quotation marks, both single and double, apostrophies, inch-marks
and foot-marks just about perfectly. It can read and write almost any
format. It has a quick way to get to all kinds of
symbols and foreign characters, quite a bit beyond what you can get with
a Compose key or AllChars. I wish Corel would once
again sell a Linux version--the original one cannot be loaded onto a
modern Linux system.
When you see a word with a red-wriggly line under it then right-click on it and near the bottom of the menu is "Add to dictionary". It works in Windows and Gnu&LInux but Mac probably has an equivalent.
If you run the spell-check on the entire document then when your name gets picked-on as being a mis-spelling the "Add to dictionary" button is in the lower half of the pop-up dialogue-box. I think "Ok" and "Cancel" are at the top but look lower down.
Either way is good.
Word-perfect is good apparently. It's been a couple of decades since i last used it but i used to
really like it. Just out of curiosity do you save documents in
1. Wp formats and if so can MS Office 2010 read them happily?
2. Odf formats, any problems?
3. MS formats that everyone can read? Do they work? Do you use the older Doc rather than DocX?
To answer the question: If I am writing to send on the Internet, I use
MS .doc format. If I am writing for my own purposes,
for example, to write a letter that will go in snail-mail, I usually use
the WP format. I never use .odf; I believe that you should use
formats that other people besides Linux-users can read. I wish .odf
would just go away; there;s no need for it.
