Re: [wpmac] Mac word processor question, part II (thank you all!)
- I have 10.3 on a Lombard 333 w/384 megs RAM and it works OK.
Not speedy, but very servicable.

page click on the Macintosh link, then on the WordPerfect for the
Macintosh page. This is a treasure of tips for WP on OSX. Scroll
down to Automatically Set the Zoom Level.
Display is not good at every zoom level and font: spaces between
words can disappear etc. But it's fine for some zoom levels and fonts:
just experiment a little.

Times (Postscript) and Times New Roman (TrueType) in WordPerfect
quite a bit. FYI, I prefer 4-bit smoothing to subpixel smoothing.
- Mac OSX will run fine on imac, 400mhz, 384 ram. It
will run fine for most task.
