Westlaw: Get your act together on hyperlinks and WP X6

For those of us who strongly prefer WordPerfect (because of its superior editing tools like “reveal codes”*), Westlaw should pull its thumb out of its mouth.  Its time to make West hyperlinking tools work with WP X6, the  newest version of WordPerfect.

While WP X3 can be used with West hyperlinking tools, switching between X6 and X3 merely to hyperlink wastes time.  Yes, I know that I can manually add hyperlinks, but guess what Westlaw I don’t want to waste the time.  If you offer hyperlinking tools, don’t pull a bait and switch.

I hear that Westlaw will rewrite its code maybe in the fall.  That’s silly and way too late.

Westlaw is holding up things by not fixing its code so that WP X6 can be used with West’s hyperlinking tools.  So, please Westlaw get with the program.

    Ah, look at all the lonely people

    Eleanor Rigby picks up the rice in the church where a wedding has been
    Lives in a dream
    Waits at the window, wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door
    Who is it for?

    All the lonely people
    Where do they all come from?
    All the lonely people
    Where do they all belong?

    Father McKenzie writing the words of a sermon that no one will hear
    No one comes near
    Look at him working, darning his socks in the night when there’s nobody there
    What does he care?

    All the lonely people
    Where do they all come from?
    All the lonely people
    Where do they all belong?

    Ah, look at all the lonely people
    Ah, look at all the lonely people

    Eleanor Rigby died in the church and was buried along with her name
    Nobody came
    Father McKenzie wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave
    No one was saved

    All the lonely people (Ah, look at all the lonely people)
    Where do they all come from?
    All the lonely people (Ah, look at all the lonely people)
    Where do they all belong?
