5 WordPerfect for Windows
by Kendall Callas
Made the move to Windows yet? Having spent over 13 years learning the intricacies
of DOS, it's
taken me some time to warm up to Windows. But now, after a few years using Windows
graduated to Windows 95 -- and I like it. My advice to you: Embrace the inevitable.
Some tricks I've learned along the way (for WordPerfect for Windows 6.x and 7.x):
- Right click for QuickMenu.
Click the right mouse button for a context sensitive "QuickMenu". The QuickMenu offers a
different list of commands depending on what you are pointing to with your mouse. Very
handy at the edit screen as well as the File Open screen.
- DOS/Win keys.
Several keystrokes are the same in DOS and Windows versions of WordPerfect:
||Reveal Codes on/off|
- Double click the status bar.
The indicators at the bottom of the screen can also be `activated'. Double click the date or
time to type it into your document at the current cursor position; double click CAPS to
the caps lock key, double click the page/line position to use the Goto menu (to change the
cursor position). Fabulous!
- Reveal codes tips.
- Double click a code you see in Reveal Codes to edit it! No more
struggling to remember how to edit Footer A.
- Drag with your mouse to size the Reveal Codes screen up or
- Filename Stamp.
A new macro ships with WordPerfect for Windows called FILESTMP. Run it to identify a
document by printing the filename on each page. You can even choose the font,
left/right/center alignment, filename or path+filename, and header or footer, A or B. Use it
your templates and form documents.
