List of WordPerfect limitations

A list of all the limitations (number of characters in a concordance entry, number of rows in a table, length of index entries, etc.) should be made available and updated with each new version. There is a user-contributed list on [WordPerfect Universe](, but it dates from 2015.

    Beware. WP 2021 cannot import address book Outlook 2012, 2016, or 365. Corel stated in the WP 2021 setup it can import addresses from the outdated Outlook 97/98/2000/XP. No mention of Outlook 2012, 2016, or 365. Even when the import is successful it does not import all the fields in Outlook specially the addresses!!!!!!!!!!!!
    If WP9 can do it how come an updated version cannot. Very disappointed old user of WP since DOS, I guess i have to go back to WP9.

    1. Unlike in WP9 and earlier versions, WP21 open pdf OCR function no longer allows one to specify pages, or range of pages, in the pdf file to convert.

    2. An old-old feature, which disappeared some time ago, was the ability to search and replace multiple files, such as all .wpd files in a directory.
