Hi and welcome to Getting Started with Corel WordPerfect Office X4. I'm David Rivers. You know I've been teaching people about the power and flexibility of WordPerfect since the DOS days of version 4.2 and I have to tell you this latest rendition is bigger and better than ever. In this title we'll get you started with WordPerfect Office X4 as we explore some of the new and important features in each of the applications in the suite. We'll begin with the flagship product, WordPerfect.

That powerful yet easy-to-use word processor for creating dynamic documents that are easy to share with other computer users. Then we hop over to Quattro Pro, a spreadsheet application that is highly compatible with that other application you may have head of, Microsoft Excel. With Quattro Pro, you can organize, analyze, report, manage and share important data and financial information, even open and save the newest file formats for Microsoft Excel. After Quattro Pro, we'll take a peek at Presentations, used for creating attention-getting slideshows and like Quattro Pro, it's extremely compatible with its Microsoft counterpart, PowerPoint.

Then we move onto WordPerfect MAIL, a built-in e-mail application with outstanding spam protection and incredibly powerful search functionality that will help you find information buried by years of Inbox, Contact and even Calendar clutter. Next it's a brand-new feature in WordPerfect Office X4 called WordPerfect Lightning. You can think of it as web connected notetaking or digital Notebook, ideal for bridging the gap between today's desktop and web-based productivity tools.

Another new feature we'll explore in this title is called Corel Visual Intelligence, an easy-to-use business intelligence tool to help you get meaning, insight and results out of complex data by converting your raw data into easy-to-read charts and graphs that you yourself can then break down and examine by category. Lastly we'll reveal five of the top hidden gems many WordPerfect users are not aware out, but they'll help you save time and effort when working with WordPerfect.

You can follow along with me or sit back and learn just by watching. So let's get started.
