Wordperfect Macros: The Windows Version/Book and Disk by Donna Mosich (1992-06-03)

Too low to display

On the other hand, I'm still surprised by things that WordPerfect can't do. It doesn't display a live word count—you have to click on the status bar to update it—and you still need a third-party macro if you want to replace all the underlines in a document with italics. (The best source of WordPerfect macros is Barry MacDonnell's Toolbox for WordPerfect, .) Word has the unique ability to split a document window, so you can edit, for example, page 1 in the top pane and page 100 in the bottom pane. WordPerfect's different architecture probably makes a similar feature impossible.

How to add Macros for Word and Word Perfect - Abacus Law

Development of WordPerfect for Macintosh did not run parallel to versions for other operating systems, and used version numbers unconnected to contemporary releases for DOS and Windows. Version 2 was a total rewrite, adhering more closely to Apple's UI guidelines. Version 3 took this further, making extensive use of the technologies Apple introduced in Systems 7.0–7.5, while remaining fast and capable of running well on older machines. Corel released version 3.5 in 1996, followed by the improved version 3.5e (for enhanced) in 1997. It was never updated beyond that, and the product was eventually discontinued. As of 2004, Corel has reiterated that the company has no plans to further develop WordPerfect for Macintosh (such as creating a native Mac OS X version).
