The free current version of WPS Office adds a watermark to all printed documents. (I use the 2013 version with no watermark and will not be "upgrading" for this reason.)
This may be a disappointment to those of you who are wondering but unfortunately you cannot use macros with this version as to do so requires VBA which is only provided with the PRO version.
Off Subject: I am currently using a beta PRO version licensed until Jan and although I have MS Office 2013 I have found WPS spreadsheets perfectly compatible with Excel and can do anything I used to do with Excel. Consequently, I am strongly minded to buy the PRO version on expiry of my license.
I have no connection with Kingsoft but am just a pleasantly surprised customer
There's a somewhat short article on WPS Office here, giving the company's history etc.:
There's a comparison of the free vs. pro versions here:
A couple few comments talk about the free version adding a watermark to printed materials -- it's not mentioned in the comparison, & the Wikipedia article says that was removed from the 2016 version:
"The personal basic version is free to use. A watermark was placed on all printed output after a 30-day trial; this was removed in version 2016."
With no offense intended to Anyone, many people have made personal observations over the years that Chinese companies excel at copying the designs of others, e.g. the the video conversion software that someone(s) always comments looks like every other brand. WPS Office looks similar to Microsoft Office, which *may* be its greatest selling point -- being familiar to folks with experience using MS Office, but at Much less cost. Other major alternatives to MS Office like the open source Libre, or Softmaker [Ashampoo] Office, or WordPerfect do things their way, though WordPerfect I think has an MS Office mode to make things easier for those used to the Microsoft software.
If you look at the available stats on who still uses XP, you'll see China prominently on that list. Chinese software *usually* has lower hardware requirements, a smaller footprint in Windows, & offers good to great backwards compatibility, not using stuff only found in the newest Windows versions. Following that trend, WPS Office is the lightest weight of the major office suite alternatives, though there is a fully portable version of Libre Office available at portableapps[.]com.
The 800 lb. gorilla in the room is of course the subscription based Microsoft Office 365... Microsoft offers a host of online or cloud based features & services that no one company has matched, & particularly if you want to use iOS or Android devices for this sort of thing, you *may* be better off looking for lowest priced deals on Office 365 key cards on Amazon & eBay.
Note: some comments refer to Open Office... development has slowed [a Lot], & there's talk of ending the project -- anyone using it is encouraged to look at Libre Office instead. Libre Office is a fork of Open Office, meaning a bunch of the folks working on Open Office decided to take the then current Open Office code base & go their own way for future development.
If you really don't like the look and feel of the new WPS 2016 you can always switch UI to 2013 Elegant Black,2013 Water Blue or....Classic Style(reminds me of Office 2003),my favorite UI.
OK, free for one year - and then, what? Will I have to pay to keep using it? Will it stop working or downgrade to a free version?
Karel, It will stop working- a gift fro GOTD
