Hi Diane,
we use NoteTab Pro also.  It is the only application that we have ever used since I first jumped on the EAD wagon.  Word Perfect may not have the best amount of flexibility from what it looks like from everyone else.
best wishes!

We use NoteTab Pro for our EAD work at Brown University, and it includes a find/replace feature, plus the "undo/redo" arrows, definitely worth the $20 for "NoteTab Pro" versus the free NoteTab in my opinion.

I prefer to use a freeware program called NoteTab light, although

NoteTab Pro is worth the small fee to upgrade. www.notetab.com . I was

introduced to it when I attended Daniel Pitti's EAD Publishing class at

Rare Book School. The only feature I miss compared to X-Metal is the

search and replace function, therefore I keep an old copy of X-Metal 3.0

on hand.
