Microsoft Word X features components like toolbars and navigation buttons that have been redesigned for greater readability and to help users quickly move from one feature to the next. New icons have been added, using anti-aliased graphics for a cleaner appearance, and they have Aqua-enabled mouseovers for enhanced usability. And just like Mac OS X, Word X uses animation to improve discoverability. Word X is fully compatible with Word 98 Macintosh Edition, Word 2001 for Mac, and Word for Windows 97, 2000, and XP.

Tools include multi-selection, which lets you command-click multiple selections of text within a Word X document and apply formatting, spelling, searching, or any other operation to the chosen selections. Word X's Clear Formatting function is a simple tool that removes an open document's formatting. Word X also provides the power to add stunning graphics to documents by letting you set a specific percentage of transparency to any drawing or shape available in Office Art.

Available only for Office for Mac, Data Merge Manager simplifies the process of using data to conduct a mass communication, via e-mail or traditional mail. Other features include the ability to get to critical contact information from the Address Book directly from Word X's Contact toolbar, making common tasks such as addressing a letter much simpler and faster. You can also preview published documents in the default Web browser directly from Word X, and build nested tables, tables with an integrated header row, and tables with diagonal lines through cells. ...

Purchasers of Word X for Mac should be aware that Micrososft does not warranty their product. I purchased Word X software from Amazon about a month ago and had problems with printing out a document. On seeking help from Microsoft I was told that Microsoft does not warranty Word for Mac and that a minimum thirty-five dollar fee would be required for their help.

5-0 out of 5 stars The first blockbuster application for OS X version 10.1!
I'm basing this review on the word X test Driver version, available on the Microsoft matopia site. From what I've seen so far, this is one very good app--everything has been made to work with the Aqua interface, the layout is quite easy to learn and use quickly, and I find myself using it more and more everyday. Of course, in the Test Drive doesn't have all of the features included--you can use the project gallery for the basics, but you'll have to wait for printing to be enabled, for example. The best part--when I redid my resume and send it as an attachment, I don't hear the old "resend it as a Word doc!" complaint anymore. I'll upgrade to Word X for sure! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars In terms of value, best productivity suite available
Like some of the other reviewers, I'm rather surprised at the number of negative reviews that Appleworks has received. While it is true that Appleworks is not as powerful as Microsoft Office, it is much less expensive and clearly represents a better value. The word processer part of it (the part that most people will use) is more intuitive and easier to use than Microsoft Word. True, Word is more powerful; but it costs $350 and requires a manual to use. I have never needed to use a manual to use Appleworks. You have complete control of your documents and you don't have to summon up the help application to figure out how to do common tasks like formatting paragraphs or adding links. Those who have mastered the complexities of MS Word and who require its special features may not like Appleworks. But for the rest of us, it more than meets our needs.

Also, one thing more: I have never had any trouble with Appleworks' translators from cwk to word format. I'm not sure why so many people have reported having trouble with it. I translated an entire book from Appleworks to PC MS Word, preserving the formats and special lettering instructions without any trouble at all. In any case, this wouldn't be a problem if people would show more courtesy to non-MS users (Macs and Linux) and not insist on sending them doc formatted files. PDF and rtf are far better cross-platform alternatives.

5-0 out of 5 stars What's not to like?
Ok, I'm am sure that there are features in Word or Excel that some of you might use and the key word is might, but for the other 98% of us. Apple Works is a complete program that is full featured and easy to use. It can save and all of latest Microsoft Office file formats and that is half the battle most of the time with some of the attachments that I receive. Other than that I've been using it for about two months now and it has done everything that I have asked it to do and done it with ease. I have no problems with crashing or quiting unexpectedly under OS X. I start it and it runs and runs and runs. It's a great value even if just to open and looks at an Excel spreadsheet or Word doucument.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Value Suite of Software
I have been using computer word processors extensively since 1986. In 2001, I switched from being primarily a PC user to being a Mac user. And Appleworks is one of the programs I use the most.

I cannot understand the reviews on this page which slam Appleworks (especially the OSX version) for not being compatible with MS Word. I covert files back and forth from PC to Mac with no problem whatsoever. The best printer I have access to is on a PC at work. I usually write documents at home, convert them to a MS Word document, and email them to myself at work. Then at work the next day I print them. No problem.

There seems to be one glitch if you save files as a rich text file. The translator doesn't know the following characters: " '

But if you save it as a MS Word for Windows 98, 2000, ME file, you don't have this problem.

Apple, keep up the good work. The average Joe or Jane should not have to pay hundreds upon hundreds of dollars to get a solid word processor.

1-0 out of 5 stars AppleWorks is crap
I have hoped and prayed for a Microsoft alternative. Unfortunately it is a Microsoft world, if you want to communicate with that world on a Mac use Office for Mac, it is brilliant. As much as I tried to move towards Works, I purchased it first, I could not, the spread sheet program in Works alone leaves you on a deserted island.

Save your headaches if you share any files than jump up to Office for Mac, however much that disgusts me to admits, it is a superior product.

1-0 out of 5 stars why upgarde
Editorial review claims Appleworks 6 will translate Word documents with Dataviz translator. Last phrase is the key. Appleworks 6 does no more translation than did Appleworks 5. If you want to manage in the PC world, either buy a PC or buy Dataviz Maclink Plus. Appleworks 6 offers nothing special for compatibility in spite of the misleading editorial review. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

AppleWorks 6.2 combines six core capabilities--word processing, page layout, painting, spreadsheet, database, and presentation--in one easy application. By seamlessly integrating these capabilities with Apple's QuickTime digital technologies, AppleWorks 6.2 makes it easy to incorporate text, spreadsheets, digital photos, images, sounds, and movies into a single document.

Sharing documents is a breeze with AppleWorks 6.2. New translators for Microsoft Word and Excel files let you open and modify these files from within AppleWorks. You can even save AppleWorks documents in these formats to share with friends and colleagues.

If you're running AppleWorks 6.2 on Mac OS X you'll notice additional benefits. Preemptive multitasking means that you can work on AppleWorks projects while iTunes rips your CD collection in the background, and your system will still stay responsive. The advanced Quartz graphics system in Mac OS X lets you save your print previews of any AppleWorks document as a PDF file. Anyone with Adobe Acrobat Reader on any platform can view and print these PDF files.

An expanding library of templates--stored on the Internet--can be downloaded via AppleWorks 6.2 without launching a browser or decompressing files. Many of the templates are designed by affiliated organizations, such as the AppleWorks Users Group, and new templates are added regularly. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good software, well, the best for me.
It is amazing software, really smart and pleasure to use. There are some things to improve to my taste, but overall it is definitely worth the money. In two hours of the actual using it appears by far more convenient that notorious MS Office. Extremely rich applications fulfilled by right tools. It is not overwhelmed with unneeded garbage but with smart and well organized things.
As one reviewer has mentioned it isn't Word. it is better. You don't have a filling that some one staying and breathing into your neck.
BTW, MS Word brought wrong habits and misleading conceptions, but if you know how to work , this one is much more productive tool.
All pieces well coordinated and inter working.
Very recommend. The interface a bit different and a few things to learn, but since you started to use it there is no way to back to MS Office. MS Office has more features in the same way as track has more horsepower, but will you drive it on vacation rather than coupe ?
One more thing to say, there is no any issues with MS Office compatibility. I converted many different documents and had no difficulties at all.

5-0 out of 5 stars It's not Word.
Let me make one thing clear: AppleWorks is not Microsoft Word. It is not Microsoft Office. And it is not a substitute for Word or Office, just as a Honda Civic isn't a substitute for a Hummer. It is, however, much easier to use, much less intrusive, and much less expensive. If you need Microsoft Office's features, by all means buy a copy. If you need to exchange files with Office users, it's probably a good idea to buy Office. But If you need to get work done quickly and easily, grab a copy of AppleWorks. All the modules (Word processor, graphics, spreadsheet, and presentation) are seamlessly integrated. Screen clutter is minimal (though the toolbars could be smaller.) Basic (and I stress basic) compatibility with Word and Excel files is included. But its strongest point is its ability to stay out of your way: it doesn't try to reformat your work to suit it's own ends, or make grammatical decisions for you, and the on-line help is helpful, not intrusive.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to use with many good features.
A great application. If you don't want to spend the extra money and get Office X then this is the application for you. It's very easy to use and has a lot of great features like templates and clip art plus, you can make your own templates and clip art. It has many features that Office X has except it doesn't have grammar check. That is the only draw back but half the time I never paid attention to it when using Office 2000 for windows so this isn't a big deal for me. I have converted many documents from Office 2000 to AppleWorks with no problems. I also use it for college and I have yet to feel the need to get Office X. Some other features it has are spell check, a word counter, and it can read back your documents to you!! Try it out. You won't be sorry! I use this application on an iBook running Mac OS X 10.2.4

5-0 out of 5 stars Great upgrade from office mac
I am a computer programmer and have been using MS Office since office 97 was released. I bought an Ibook 2 weeks ago in order to get away from the Wintel platform (and Linux too). The appleworks program is great it lets me create documents that MS Office can read and will also open MS documents. AppleWorks (as far as I can tell) has all the power of MS Office and is way easier to use. I have only been using it for a couple of weeks and can already create better documents faster using appleworks. I have not used the presentation part of AppleWorks yet but I assume its as good as the rest but, for presentations I reccommend keynote.

5-0 out of 5 stars Well worth your money!
...Appleworks Office does everything I want an office program to do and it's stable and reliable. (I'm running system 9.2 on a G4). Another reviewer claims it isn't compatable with other programs, but fails to give any useful specifics, such as what programs and how it isn't compatable with them. I ignored that review and bought this software, and I'm glad I did. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars THE BEST ALTERNATIVE TO APPLEWORKS OR MS WORD!`
The very first thing you notice when you load a Mariner Software product (Mariner Write or Mariner Calc) is how fast it loads. Unlike Appleworks, there is no waiting around. These products are fast!

A word processor is a word processor, or so you might think! Mariner Write has an excellent toolbar and is loaded with options. The display is clean and crisp; there are no unnecessary menus or icons displaying when you load Write. You can extensively change your display with the PREFERENCES menu. Colors, fonts, spelling, and keys can all be changed to suite your needs.

Your default blank document has style, alignment, font, font size, and effects drop down menus. These are fast and convenient! The ruler is can easily be modified. Each menu is loaded with extras and a really nice thing is that when you click on the FONT menu you get a true font WYSIWYG display of all your fonts.

In Mariner Write, the FILE menu gives you lots of extras. Summary info, count, and merge are readily available. It has a very nice Print Envelope option. Under the FORMAT menu, the Bullets and Borders and Fill options are complete and crammed full of options.

A major fault of Appleworks, in my opinion, is the number of steps required to insert a graphic in a word processing document, especially a graphic with wrap-around text. I forget every time how to do it and the help system is not very helpful. In Mariner Write - BOOM! - it is a straight forward and simple process!

All in all, for the price, this is a "must have" replacement for Appleworks and it is a great, inexpensive alternative to Microsoft Word. I used to compose my novels on Appleworks but with one look at Mariner Write, I was instantly hooked and I can confidently say that you will be too! Buy it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Full featured replacement for MS Word - at much less $$$
If you're not wedded to MS products then this is definitely worth your time to examine (they also have a trial period demo at their website... What I like: small (no 100 MB install), fast, flexible, "save as" includes a PDF option, nice dictionaries already included. They also have a utility called "Drop Doc" which will automatically convert any MS Word file (.doc) to an RTF file that is then opened flawlessly by Write. So, now you can convert all those old documents without any difficulties.

What can be improved: changing the view size (from say, 100% to 150% can result in some slight blurriness of characters, depending on your font choice). That's it.

And there is a MS Excel alternative (Mariner Calc) too.

Word and Excel can do a lot of fancy things, but I only need and use probably 10% of their capabilities -- and for me Mariner Write (and Calc) do more than what I need, for a lot less $$. ... Read more

It's incompatible with my MacLinkPlus; everything must become Appleworks 5 before it can then be translated into AW6 and the same thing works in reverse. I can't cut & past text from my old fave WordPerfect for Mac. And it's the slowest somemabitch, at least in iMac X+, that I've ever had the impatience to work with. Spinning wheel: working, working, working, all right already: finish working! It's basically sound, but I can't call up the usually codes to see what is really going on, as I could with WordPerfect. Its translation to html is a nice attempt but full of hesitancies, mistranslations, & that goddamned eternal spinning wheel: processeing, processing. I really think I *could* like this word process if they fixed up the speed, efficiency, & translatability, & added the "seeing within" features I like. [I had hoped WordPerfect would make something for Mac X+, but they say no.]

Amazon.com Review

A solid, fast, and easy-to-use word processor that also has advancedfeatures is a powerful tool and a good find, especially when it bears thelegendary name of WordPerfect.

Now being published by Corel, WordPerfect 3.5 for Mac is more than a wordprocessor. With the ability to export HTML files for the Web and importQuickTime movies and sounds, as well as its use of interactive dialog boxes,WordPerfect is a hybrid page-layout application and multimedia tool.

Along with the usual array of spell checkers and grammar checkers, layoutoptions, tables, and a wide assortment of document templates, Corel has thrownin 5,400 clip art images, 150 fonts, 200 high-resolution photos, almost 200textures, and almost 500 sound files.

One thing that WordPerfect has always excelled at is its handling of largefiles, i.e., novel-length documents. Built-in memory management, combined withefficiently written code, makes writing large documents a pleasure. Navigation(scrolling) is fast, as is spell checking and document reformatting.

Since this is an older application, the system requirements are very modest bytoday's standards--5 MB RAM, a Power Mac (which all Macs are now), and about 16MB of disk space are all that's needed. Yet the program is robust and flexibleand, in light of its age, fairly crash free even under Mac OS 8.6 and 9.

There aren't too many competitors in the word processing arena, but even ifthere were, WordPerfect 3.5 would be a tough one to beat. In light of thefeature set and the cost, it's an outstanding value. --Mike Caputo ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A Cost-Effective Substitute for MS Word
I've owned this program for three years and use it exclusively for writing novels. I've tried cheaper programs and have experienced considerable difficulties with memory problems. They simply cannot take the load of a 400+ page manuscript. I've also used it to create tables, and it works quite nicely. The graphics placement takes a bit of tweaking, but once I got the hang of it there was no problems. The program also has HTML features, but I have not used them yet. I have, however, used the spelling and grammar check quite extensively and have no qualms about those. I recommend this product for anyone who can't afford the hefty price of Word. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Basically the Same, with a New Surprise
What sold me on this upgrade was the other reviewers' testimonies about the complaints they would receive from PC owners about not being able to open Word documents created on a Mac. I began experiencing that problem, thinking it was a system issue rather than a bug in the 2001 software.

Anyway, I bought this upgrade because I didn't need the whole Office Suite, which is three times more expensive. I haven't had the chance to explore all of Word's new features, but so far I'm happy with it. The upgrade from Office 2001 was painless. The user interface is basically the same as the 2001 version, so there were no big learning curves.
Much to my surprise, I found out that I could save my document as a PDF file right from Word with one click of a button. I didn't have to go into Acrobat Acrobat or Distiller in order to accomplish this.
Recommended.

2-0 out of 5 stars what can I use to upgrade...???
I have office 4.2.1 will this count as an upgrade???? I don't want to buy this and find out that it won't! I hate office, but love entourage and if I qualify for the upgrade, it's actually cheaper than buying entourage on its own!

1-0 out of 5 stars NOTHING OUT THERE WILL GIVE YOU HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE FASTER!!
It only takes a mere seconds. And suddenly you're experiencing high blood pressure that registers in the danger zone. But you won't mind. It's part of living on the edge in Word OSX. Want to play? Follow these directions. Simply install Microsoft Word's OS X in two of your networked Macs. Almost instantaneously you'll feel a little flush come to your face when the screen reads: "ACCESS DENIED. YOU'RE ONLY PERMITTED TO RUN ONE COPY OF WORD X." HOW THOUGHTFUL! Because everybody I know who has two home computers would surely want to spring another [$$$] for the exact same product. This program is supposed to assist me in my work. Not spy on me. Microsoft they never quit. I mean it's really amazing. I don't need big brother. I need an assistant. And because Microsoft is so fun loving...get this... it actually opens the program and then does it's song and dance about how it will now quit. FOR BLOOD PRESSURE THAT COULD BE BETTER MEASURE USING THE THE RICTER SCALE THIS IS THE ONLY PRODUCT YOU'LL EVER NEED. IF YOU WANT A DECENT WORD PROCESSING APPLICATION GO COREL OR ' THINK WORD' THEY'RE CHEAPER AND THEY CAN BE SAVED AS WORD. DOC DOCUMENT WHICH IS WHAT WORD USES.

5-0 out of 5 stars Word X--just get it
I know the final version is still a few weeks away, BUt based on the test Drive version available now, word X for OS X holds ALOT of promise! With OS X 10.1, the whole app uses the same Aqua guidelines and features very well--the dialog boxes, icons, the way you can use and edit small images in your word docs, etc. Plus, you don't have to hear the old "send document x to us in word format" ever again :-) So even with some of the main features turned off in the test Drive, you'll see what great potential this version has for OS X users (but you'll need version 10.1) ...

Amazon.com Review

Microsoft Office is an incredibly popular productivity suite,but many home users have a far greater need for a word processor thanthey do for a spreadsheet program or presentation software. It's forthat reason that Microsoft has released this version of Word 98, aspecial edition for iMac and iBook owners.

After the simplest installation procedure imaginable--just drag thefolder from the CD-ROM--all of Word 98's convenience is at yourfingertips. Layout tools (page borders, font effects, and automaticformatting) and proofing tools (automatic correction of typos, spell andgrammar check, and a contextual thesaurus) are matched with wizards thatguide you through typical document creation as well as a helpful OfficeAssistant that you can query in plain English. Far from overwhelming,the result is an extremely flexible word processor that strives to makeit as easy as possible for you to make your work look good.

Features available only in this edition are the greeting card templatesdesigned by PaperStudio.com and the extended clip art library of 5,000images that range from highly iconographic black-and-white pieces todynamic colored art. The clip art library is nicely consistent inquality and styles, making it easy to mix and match items.

By culling Word from Office 98, repackaging it with some goodies, andoffering it at a reasonable price, Microsoft has made a professionaltool that's home user friendly. --Jack Gardiner ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good...as far as mac software is concerned
This is one of the best word prosessors for the mac, much less the iMac and iBook. Is had variouse features, such as spelling/grammar check and a hyphenation program, as well as a wizard to make tables. Although, word 2000 is out for the PC(which is much better)....

5-0 out of 5 stars Word 98 Special Edition will run on most any Mac
Suppliers are required to state that Word 98 Special Edition for the iMac and iBook will run only on these machines. This is not true! The Special Edition will run on almost any Mac that has sufficient disk space and memory. I was told this by a Microsoft tecnical assistance person! I then bought it, and it's now running on my Power Mac 7500 under OS 8.6. However, you may find that Microsoft will not give you technical assistance if you tell them that you are not running it on an iMac or iBook. Word 98 is an excellent word processor with many features...and it's easy to use. It is a significant step up from Word 6.1 that I had been using. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Microsoft Word is a popular word-processing and publishing program for creating home, business, and school documents. For creating documents, it features a project gallery, formatting palette, and new templates and wizards. You can use the AutoCorrect feature to detect and correct typos, misspelled words, grammatical errors, and incorrect capitalization. Word comes with a list of built-in corrections (called AutoCorrect entries), but you can easily add or remove entries. The Letter Wizard in Word 2001 can help you write a new letter quickly and easily, or it can help you change and add to elements in your existing letter. With the new Click and Type feature, you can quickly insert text, graphics, tables, or other items in a blank area of a document. Click and Type automatically applies the formatting necessary to position the item where you double-clicked. For example, to create a title page, double-click in the middle of a blank page, and then type a centered title.

Microsoft Word 2001 provides an extensive set of features that you can use to take advantage of the World Wide Web and the Internet. Easily save yourWord documents for use on the Web with the Save as Web Page command. Use hyperlinks to link to any Office file, Web page, or other file on any internal or external Web site or any file server. Without saving your file, you can quickly preview your Web page in your browser with the Web Page Preview command. You can choose to save only those elements in your Web pages that will display in Web browsers, allowing you to reduce the size of your files for quicker and easier loading in Web browsers. ...
