WordPerfect 1.x (Mac)

During the late 1980's, WordPerfect was THE standard word processor for DOS based PCs in big business. Under DOS, it competed mostly against Wordstar. WordPerfect for Windows enjoyed some success in the early Windows environments, but was quickly displaced by Microsoft Word for Windows. Later Windows versions were part of Borland Office/Novell PerfectOffice/Corel Office/Corel WordPerfect Office.

In 1988 Word Perfect Corp released a port of WordPerfect for the Macintosh computer. The version numbering is different from that of other platforms, restarting the version at "1.0".

The Macintosh port was discontinued at version 3.5e in 1997.

1.0.3 adds converters for importing from WordPerfect 5.x for the PC.

Supported on Mac 512KE, Plus, SE, and Mac II.
