Well, I’ll take all the above as my answer.
And assume that Reveal Codes is not in LO’s future!
The query was not for me, but for a Windows-XP friend who I’m trying to upscale to Ubuntu. But he insists on using WordPerfect because of its Reveal Codes.
Note that I also used WPerfect’s “reveal codes”, but back when it was DOS-based, and I slowly managed to wean end-users off of good ol’ WordStar for DOS (much to the CTRL-freak macho director’s chagrin - he though a mouse was effete).
And then, twenty years later (yeah, at a new jobsite) I slowly weaned end-users off of Lotus 123 - they were already using WordPerfect for Windows - and onto the inexpensive Quattro-Pro in place of 1-2-3.
Then… the suits walked in (*#%* consultants!) and started asking why no one was using MS-Office. “It’s EVERYONE’S STANDARD!”. And then promptly chucked the Corel and 1-2-3 stuff, and had everyone (SLOWLY!) converted to MS-Office.
Then I retired. Several months later the company went out of business. Any wonder?
If I wasn’t retired and had a job in IT, i’d be pressing them to chuck MS-Office, and go to LibreOffice! And, of course convince the bosses/bean-counters to donate to this “free” LibreOffice!
