"The word processor of Word Perfect supports over 60 different file formats including those from OpenOffice and Microsoft Word."

Found my own answer... duh!

But complex documents that have reveal codes may be a problem as Word Perfect is the only Word Processing software that uses reveal codes. Reveal codes are used for formatting.

Some versions of Word do have a form of Reveal Coding.

I've used WordPerfect since back when it was owned by WordPerfect in Utah, '92, started with both WP 5.0 for DOS [took a college course] and WP 5.1 for Windows [first computer 80386]. Wouldn't be without it, some functions are simply easier to use than in Word.

Well the big thing with Word versus WP is Word for WIndows beat WP to the Windows market and took the market away from WP.

Sorry, Jake, WordPerfect was released in 1979 and the first version of Word, called Multi-Tool Word for Xenix systems, was in 1983. Source: WikiPedia

Sun Micro's StarOffice [now OpenOffice] was not far behind, 1985.
