Over the past twenty years I have used numerous word processing programs, and have never found anything to equal WordPro. Freelance Graphics, which I use regularly, does everything I could possibly want it to do. It is easier to make these programs do what you want them to do, and, just as important, to prevent them from doing things you don't want them to do, by far, than with the Microsoft equivilants. And then there is the fact that Lotus gives you the filters to save into a wide range of formats, or read out of them, so documents in some other format are not a problem (which they certainly are with Microsoft programs). Finally, Lotus have priced this package at a level that a mere mortal can afford, unlike Microsoft Office, which is outrageously expensive. I really can't understand why anyone, whether private individual or multinational corporation, would use anything else.
