I just started it and pressed a button and... voila.... error and quit. I have to experiment with it further before sending bug reports.

nice work! Unfortunately, it is impossible to enter composite accented characters. It works when the key sends the character directly (like, on my swiss keyboard, etc...) but it doesn't work when I have to press two keys, lime in ...

If there are problems on Sam Hardware, then it is probably because OS4 is using a Debug Kernel, and thus catching more errors than normal. Get debugging ;) . Oh and please please add ODT support (OpenOffice universal file format).

@Phantom
Make sure you assign to the default directory where cinnamon is unpacked.
There is another bug related to the minimal part of the SDL library Cinnamon uses. Des is investigating the problem. Cinnamon is going to be an excellent piece of software, release after release.

@ AmigaBlitter

I think that I've done this already, but I'm not sure.

CW gives a professional feeling and I like it. I hope the improvements will be frequent.

Thanks for all the feedback

@xyphoid
I have absolutely nothing against MorphOS. I just have no compatible hardware to develop on. People have reported that earlier versions of CW worked to some extent on MorphOs if they used the OS4emu thingy majingy.

@lucaricossa
I am aware of this and it is something that will be adressed in the next version

@ChrisH
I am going to support more formats, and ODF is definitely something I will look into.

Dose Cinnamon Writer have a good spell checker?

The reason I ask is thats one of my main requirement from a word processor, and I cant seem to find a features list on the website.

Hi Dwyloc
CW does not have a spell checker at the moment. This will be incorporated at a later development stage.

I tested it quikcly. It misses characters when typing fast and that's severe problem. I tried to move a scroll bar on right hand side and it gave me many error messages and then finally crashed.

OK thanks I will look forward to a future version then.

As I will be running it for my SAM440 anyway that gives you some more time to find and kill any bugs related to running CW on the SAM440
