WordPerfect to Apple

This is a bit off-topic, but I don’t see a better place for my question. I have been using WP8 for many years now and am very comfortable with it. At some point in the fairly new future I may wind up getting an Apple computer — and WP won’t run there unless I use a Windows window, which I probably would want to avoid.

I am wondering if anyone on this board has had experience with any Apple word processing programs or with Microsoft Word (which does have an Apple equivilent) and can suggest the best one to use if I have to make a switch. I particularly like the ability to put frequently used files on the menu and the ability to sort tables on any column I want.

I will await words of wisdom.

Probably OpenOffice. The slideshow portion of the program is better than Presentations. The ‘Writer’ isn’t as good as WordPerfect, but it’s easily a match for the Mac version of Microsoft’s product.

It’s at http://www.openoffice.org
