WordPerfect OS 8-9 Updater

21 July 2000

Makes WordPerfect MacOS 8 and 9 compatible.

Overview

WordPerfect OS 8-9 Updater updates the latest version of WordPerfect for compatibility with OS versions 8 and 9:
  • Slows scrolling speed (also on fast machines running 7.5x or 7.6x)
  • Fixes grayed out Styles and Window menus
  • Improves display
  • Allows aliasing of folders such as Language and Help
  • Fixes outlining

Since any application compatible with OS 9.0.4 should run in classic mode on OS X and later, WordPerfect should now be compatible with all future OS versions.

This update makes the best word processor ever written for the Mac and the most Mac-like of all word processors fully compatible with OS9. It is a must upgrade. To make it work I found it necesary to rename my existing WordPerfect folder, to download a (free) new copy of WordPerfect from Corel, and to run the updater before having launched WordPerfect for the first time.

I have been looking for this update for two years. My software was 3.5 without the 3.5 update which I had difficulty finding. The links in the read me's wouldn't work. It looks like Corel has removed all download support for 3.5. After installing the 3.5 update and then the Mac OS 8&9 update, my styles menu is no longer dim. I am now shining. Thanks for sharing the OS updater.
