News: Graphcat for Corel WordPerfect X6 has begun shipping.
Orders placed during 2012 will receive FREE upgrades to Graphcat version 6.2.
Graphcat 6.2 adds support for Corel WordPerfect X6.
Setup is now easier, and auto-detects versions of WordPerfect installed, from 10 through X6–that’s 10, 11, 12, X3, X4, X5, and X6. The Graphcat installation program autodetects installed versions of WordPerfect, and can install for all detected versions in one easy installation.
Upgrades are available at half-price. Contact Science Translations–include your contact information from the time of your original order for Graphcat (any version, any platform).
For anyone using WordPerfect, Graphcat, and a high-resolution camera, there’s news:
Corel has fixed the error message “The graphic cannot be opened because its width or height exceeds 27 inches.” WordPerfect X4 (and above) can handle large pictures (our tests go up as high as 12 Megapixels, so far), so Graphcat can now handle high-resolution pictures as well.
Graphcat will have a minor upgrade within the next few weeks, to add support for the new Corel WordPerfect Office X6.
Anyone who purchased Graphcat during 2012 will be eligible for a FREE upgrade. For all previous purchasers of Graphcat, any edition or version, a half-price coupon will become available when Graphcat 6.2 is released.
Graphcat 6.2 will support versions of Graphcat from 10 through X6. Older versions are available on request to paid users of Graphcat.

GRAPHCAT creates editable photo and art catalogs and albums in Corel WordPerfect.
GRAPHCAT is a set of macro packages for Corel WordPerfect. The macros read any directory and create a printable catalog of the graphics files they find. All graphics file formats supported by WordPerfect can be inventoried and cataloged by GRAPHCAT, and any printer supported by WordPerfect may be used, including the PDF export in WordPerfect’s version X3 or above.
Graphcat’s printouts may be completely custom designed, if you wish, or you can use the default settings of four columns and 1″ height for each image, which results in 28 images per page (on US letter paper). Any combination of columns and image heights may be chosen for a catalog. International users: Graphcat will accept measurements in metric measurements as well as inches, and uses your default paper size, whether it is A4, US Letter, or Landscape.
Each catalog can be identified with a title of your choice, or Graphcat can provide an automatic catalog title of “Clip Art in ” and the path and directory that was searched. The new graphics formats supported by each new release of WordPerfect carries over to Graphcat, including support for JPG, GIF, and PNG images in recent versions of WordPerfect.
I’ve had a few reports of an ‘array error’ in Graphcat, always in WordPerfect 11. Here’s the fix:
The message happens only in the initial release of WordPerfect 11. In the Help, About WordPerfect… menu entry, the version number is identified as 184.108.40.206.
Since WordPerfect 11 was released, there have been three service packs. The fully-updated version is 220.127.116.110. Graphcat will run properly with version 18.104.22.1680 (service pack 1) or higher.
To download service packs for WordPerfect 11, visit Corel.
The list of patches for WordPerfect 11 is at http://www.corel.com/servlet/Satellite/us/en/Content/1153321224268?pid=1208716795352.
Do read the directions for installing service packs on WordPerfect 11–the original program CD is required.
