It looks like it is for OS4.x only, why not state this in the announcement?

@Minuous

So I can lure people to read this part of the homepage:

Quote:
AROS / MorphOS versions:
Cinnamon Writer is intended for all amiga variants and a long goal of mine is to be able to provide AROS and MorphOS native versions. Cinnamon Writer is easy to port which only needs a few modifications and the freetype library to be ported.
I am looking for coders that can help me port Cinnamon Writer. In effect only around of 300 lines of c++ needs to be ported. These lines primarily contain the code for window / mouse / keyboard control, so it should be a complete breeze for at experienced coder.
Please contact: Projects@Desler.be

@Lionstorm

Could you please send me a crash report? and if possible, the errors that CW reports bugs@desler.be. All problems people have reported with this version have been because of dodgy truetype fonts (or most likely, a bug in how CW handles dodgy truetype fonts) or that they didn't have Fonts:_truetype directory containing at least the deja vu sans truetype font

Also: If you experience problems with saving / loading of DOCX files, please make sure that you use the version of ZIP that was supplied in the package. I know that the version is more than 10 years old, but I cannot get the version on OS4 depot to work (it forgets protection bits completely)

Instead of depending on external commands programs to read/write .zip files (such solutions seem quite hackish to me) why not use a library like f.e. libzip instead (a much better solution IMO)?

I still don't see the relevance for OS3.9 users.

@Minuous
Tell you what. If you know how to setup a modern GCC compiler (or cross compiler) for AOS3.9 and help me with the porting of a few necessary functions for handling mouse, keyboard and window functions correct, Ill try to make a AOS3.9 native version. You probably have to run it from Amithlon or UAE to be able to fully utilize it though.
Contact me if you're interested
