Perhaps the word processor you've been using has 100 times as many features as you need. Or it won't work the way you want it to - too many views or too few, and nothing makes any sense. Or it looks as if it were designed back when computers displayed text in green letters on a black screen. Growly Write is something else entirely: fresh, capable, and simple. But not too simple.
The range of documents you can create in Write is staggering: multiple columns, chapters with different layouts, pictures that flow with the text or pictures that text wraps around, drop caps, tables, lists, links within a document or to web pages, borders simple and complex, and a complete toolkit of text formats. But everything is easy to find.
What is new in this release:
- It's now easier to turn off bold and italic, which would sometimes stick when you didn't want them to.
- Comments from Word RTF are imported as notes.
- A new option to ignore font leading on text, which prevents symbols from messing up your line spacing.
- And lots of other improvements and bug fixes. See the help file for details.
What is new in version 1.2.1:
Write 1.2.1 can now open Word 4 and 5 files and pictures from System 9 (pre-OS X). There are several other improvements and bug fixes.
