Graphcat 6.2 for Corel WordPerfect X6 is Available Now

in: Graphcat

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.

documentManagementHandler.dll Error in WordPerfect X6

I’ve seen this error message twice now on the first run of WordPerfect X6 after installation:


Third Party Handler Error
Unable to load: …Corel\WordPerfect Office X6\Programs\documentManagementHandler.dll

In both cases so far, the install was onto a 64-bit Windows 7 PC that already contained WordPerfect X5, which was not being removed.

The fix was routine: First, confirmed that the dll file was really missing from that location, and then copied it from the matching location in the X5 installation. WordPerfect X6 then runs with no complaints.

For a typical install, the file to copy is this one:
c:\Program Files(x86)\Corel\WordPerfect X5\WordPerfect Office X5\Programs\documentManagementHandler.dll
to here:
c:\Program Files(x86)\Corel\WordPerfect Office X6\Programs\documentManagementHandler.dll

The file paths will vary depending on the original install destinations of both programs.

Formatting Documents to Read on a Smart Phone

Lately, I’ve been setting up reference documents to make them readable on my smart phone. I may want them when I’m not near a computer, and they’re not materials I would put online, like server settings and short technical notes. PDF works well for this, but to reduce zooming, it’s best to format them in advance.

First, I’ve created a new page definition, _Cell screen. (In WordPerfect, that’s Format, Page, Page Setup, Add). For Size, choose User Defined Size, 2″ wide, 3.5″ tall. For document margins, click on Minimum–should be 0.1″ all around. Return to the document.

Zoom setting should be set to 100% to preview the look on a smart phone’s screen. I find 8 point type to work well, and not need zooming. Start from there.
Use File, Publish to PDF to create the PDF image. Check it in Adobe Reader, using the Zoom setting (View, Zoom, Actual Size) to see what it looks like.

Finally, send it to your phone. Methods vary with the phone, but on Android, the app ‘AirDroid’ does a great job.

Graphcat 6.1 released, Update for Corel WordPerfect X5

in: Graphcat

Graphcat 6.1 is available now. The new release of Graphcat Photo Album Builder and Clip Art Cataloger adds support for Corel’s new release X5 of WordPerfect, and updates installation support of Graphcat in Windows 7, in both 64-bit and 32-editions.

Free downloadable upgrades are available on request to all purchasers of Graphcat during 2010.

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.
