Corel Unveils Legal Edition

COREL Corp., the maker of WordPerfect, the most widely used word-processing program among law firms, has announced the release of Corel WordPerfect Suite 7--Legal Edition for Windows 3.1 and Windows 95, an integrated suite designed to include legal-specific enhancements to the company's business productivity applications.

Corel says that in addition to including the basic Suite 7 programs, Legal Edition provides case management capabilities; enhanced legal-specific WordPerfect functions; document assembly; legal clip art; a legal speller; other features. The product also includes an address book that allows sharing of data. The package is available in both 16-bit and 32-bit versions.

Corel reports that it has assembled a number of legal software providers--including Gavel and Gown Software Inc., makers of Amicus Attorney, and NexLaw--to incorporate functionality specifically designed for attorneys into Legal Edition. An upgrade to the package, incorporating the soon-to-be-released WordPerfect 8 and Internet functionality provided by Netscape Communications Corp., is expected later this year, according to Corel, which is based in Ottawa, Ontario.

Portrait LCD Models Have A Small Desktop Footprint

LIQUID crystal display technology is making its debut on the legal professional's desktop with the release of Portrait PageView and Portrait PageMaster by Portrait Display Labs of Pleasanton, Calif.

Portrait says that the new LCD monitors offer all the advantages of LCDs over Cathode Ray Tube based monitors: perfect focus, perfect geometry, zero emissions, smaller footprint and lighter weight. Both new models weigh less than 10 pounds and take up mere inches on a desktop, Portrait reports. In addition to ergonomic advantages, Portrait says that the new LCDs offer a viewing area equivalent to that of a 17-inch CRT while consuming only 30 Watts of power versus the average 160 Watts of their CRT counterparts. Portrait explains that its new LCDs were designed using DSTN technology, enabling them to be offered at a fraction of the cost of a comparably sized LCD based on Thin Film Transistor technology.
