WordSmith 2.0 released

Tue Jul 17, 2001 - 2:35 PM EDT - By VisorCentral Staff

Blue Nomad released today WordSmith 2.0, a full-featured word processing application for the Palm OS. The most significant improvement is FineType, which allows users to import TrueType/outline fonts from Windows and view those fonts on their devices. FineType also allows Prism users to view anti-aliased, high resolution fonts. Here are some other features from the press release:
WordSmith 2.0 also offers bulleted lists and full bookmark support, including the ability to create new bookmarks, and the ability to go to, count, hide or show bookmarks. In addition, with Version 2.0 users can preserve, edit, and create new footnotes, endnotes and comments, and can preserve page setup (i.e., paper sizes, page orientation, margins) and default language as well. The feature-packed WordSmith 2.0 also provides a greatly enhanced find & replace feature that is significantly faster, and which offers a new search progress meter, a "replace all" option, and the ability to cancel search and replace all operations. Other refinements include improved support for the onscreen keyboard, and more display options, including the ability to “archive” documents, hide or show archived documents and the tags (icons) for bookmarks, comments, footnotes, images, tables, and more.
There are plenty of other improvements as well. WordSmith 2.0 is $29.95 and is now available. It is one of the best applications ever written for the Palm OS. It has replaced Memopad on my Visor Prism and is one of my favorite applications. For more details on WordSmith visit Blue Nomad's website.
