Why no mail merge???

Post by mibtp »

If I knew this s-ware didn't have a basic mail merge, I would never of bought it. It's a basic feature every other word processing s-ware has. Why hasen't this been added? I bought this for my small business and an extremely disappointed.

PS Just bought the s-ware a few months ago.

Hey, thanks for that link, gemboy! That's nice to have.


I wish I had played with the demo more before I bought Express, so I would have known the World Peace feature isn't finished yet. Sigh.

Doode,

You can be part of the solution, or
you can sit on the sidelines (dreaming of NW Classic) and be part of the problem

I'm not sure a World Peace macro will integrate nicely or provide all the features of built-in World Peace.

Good point, because even if you only use World Peace once a year to mail out holiday cards, you wan't it to be there all the time waiting for you.

I tried Cmd-W (for "World"), but that just bombed my document. D'oh!

Then I tried Cmd-P (for "Peace") and my printer tried to chip in, but senseless wars raged on.

I figured it might be more obscure (world peace isn't always simple). So I tried Cmd-Opt-W, and right before my eyes NWE started blowing up all my documents, leaving only dissipating clouds of smoke! (try it, really)

There's a lot of work to be done, but I'm hopeful the kinks can be smoothed over and World Peace will be a feature in an upcoming version.
