Anyone using WordPerfect on their iBook notice a large number of redraw problems with WordPerfect? Is there a work around.
It's such a great program (great price too) that I am loath to give it up for Appleworks, or dish it out for Word or some other monster program like that.

well gee, AppleWorks5.04 is great
maybe you have heard bad things about AppleWorks 6.0...

5.04 is just fine with MacOS 9

Although WordPerfect was a great program, it is incredibly buggy with the last few releases of the Mac OS. To make matters worse, it is unlikely that Corel will ever release a new version of WordPerfect for the Mac.

Update, six years later . . . WordPerfect runs without problems in all versions of OSX Classic, and a free Spotlight plugin indexes text and metadata in Tiger. The program, one necessary updater (for OS 8/9/Classic and which helps screen redraw) and a hundred third-party utilities are free downloads at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/wordperfectmac/, which also hosts an active support forum.
