WordPerfect X3 has several new features designed to make it easier for users to move between WordPerfect and Microsoft Word. Besides improved file compatibility, WordPerfect X3 includes toolbars and menus that imitate those found in Microsoft Word.

In addition, a floating Microsoft Word compatibility toolbar makes common tasks, such as saving files in Word format and converting multiple documents to WordPerfect format, a cinch.
