COMPUTER MANUAL FOR A
TEXTBOOK COMPANY

Word and Data Processing: WordPerfect 5.0

I wrote this in-house manual in 1988 while working for a textbook subcontractor that was starting to switch over to computers. Brief and to the point, it provides all the information needed to use WordPerfect 5.0. It also includes information needed for working in other languages. At the time, there were no short-and-simple publications about computer programs—probably because thinner books have thinner profit margins.
