 SYMANTEC ANNOUNCES NEW, MORE POWERFUL VERSION
 OF JUSTWRITE WINDOWS WORD PROCESSOR
 JustWrite 2.0 Offers Full-Featured Word Processing
 for Business Professionals
 CUPERTINO, Calif., March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Symantec Corp. (NASDAQ: SYMC) today introduced a new, faster and more powerful version of its Windows word processor. JustWrite(TM) version 2.0 includes new features that simplify the creation of sophisticated documents, make mail merge even easier and enhance data sharing capabilities.
 "JustWrite version 2.0 distinguishes itself from the dozens of other word processing programs by offering easy-to-use features that help our customers accomplish the most sophisticated word processing tasks quickly and simply," said Julie E. Bingham, Symantec's vice president of productivity applications. "With JustWrite's comprehensive feature set, customers can produce all forms of correspondence ranging from simple memos to professional-looking newsletters. Anyone who creates documents on a regular basis, whether a corporate executive or student, will benefit from the product's accessible functionality and affordability." Added Power to Create Sophisticated Documents Easily
 With JustWrite's new floating frame technology, customers can place graphic, text, table and OLE frames anywhere on the page which can even span multiple columns. This enables customers to create newsletters with graphics, proposals with charts and tables and other sophisticated documents.
 The integrated table editor has also been enhanced with math calculations. Rather than using a separate spreadsheet application, customers can save time by creating tables with simple calculations directly in their JustWrite documents. Customizable Tool Bar Automates Word Processing Tasks
 JustWrite version 2.0 includes new features which make customers more productive by automating many common tasks. For example, customers can place icons for often used functions such as cut, paste and print, on a customizable tool bar for easy access. The new Quick Paste function provides a shortcut for moving and copying text. By simply selecting the text and clicking the right mouse button, text can be moved instantly to a new location. In addition, a new grammar checker contains 5,500 grammar rules to automate editing and enhance style.
 A flexible library facility allows customers to easily access their most often used graphics, text styles, section formatting, frames and other information. These items can be placed instantly into any document by selecting them by name or from the graphical preview displayed in the Library Browser. Enhanced Mail Merge
 JustWrite will now display mail merge documents on screen before printing. In addition, merge field information can be inserted in the document by selecting fields from the tool bar. JustWrite offers the easiest and most direct way to merge data with Q&A, dBASE, Paradox and ASCII databases with full query and sort capabilities. OLE and DDE Data Sharing Capabilities
 JustWrite supports Windows' Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) and Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) to dynamically link JustWrite to other spreadsheet, word processing and graphics applications. Both linking features guarantee that customers can quickly and easily create documents which contain the most current information from all OLE and DDE servers.
 JustWrite version 2.0, using its updated transparent Automatic File Conversion technology, imports and exports text and graphics from or to many other word processing and graphics formats. They include Microsoft Word for Windows 2.0, Microsoft Word for DOS 5.5, WordPerfect 5.1, Lotus Ami Pro 2.0, WordStar 5.5, Multimate 4.0 and many more. Pricing and Availability
 JustWrite version 2.0 is available now through Symantec,'s network of distributors and resellers. The suggested retail price is $249; the upgrade price is $49. Customers who purchased JustWrite version 1.0 after Jan. 9, 1992, can request a free upgrade.
 Just Write version 2.0 requires an IBM PC or compatible running Microsoft Windows version 3. It provides network file locking and a complete messaging system on any Windows-supported network environment such as Novell, IBM LAN Manager, Banyan VINES and LANtastic.
