Software News   Software News : Cinnamon Writer 0.62 is available for download
   posted by Desler on 9-Jun-2009 19:07:17 (3540 reads)
This is an announcement of the immediate availability of version 0.62 of Cinnamon Writer. Cinnamon Writer is a compact and efficient word processor developed especially with Amiga and Amiga-like systems in mind. Cinnamon Writer runs on AOS 4.0 and 4.1.

New version include:
  • Major speed optimization
  • Added Find/Replace functionality
  • Selectable document sizes
  • Resizable document area
  • New document ruler (WIP)
  • Several minor additions improve user experience

Please visit the homepage to try the new version. The homepage also contains screenshots of this version and previous versions. Furthermore you will be able to download fonts that can be used in Cinnamon Writer and other programs

I strive to improve Cinnamon Writer for each new version. Therefore, if you have any ideas or suggestion to improve the program or if you have discovered a bug, please contact me.

Cinnamon Writer is free to download and use. If you like it please consider a donation. Donations will be used to attract gifted programmers and graphics artists to improve Cinnamon Writer… Or will be included as an integral part of my beer budget, of course depending on the size of the donation

I agree, CW is a good software tending to be the native AOS4 word processor even if it is a WIP.

Sounds good... BUT the reason I stopped using Amiga word-processors years ago was NOT them lacking in features (Wordworth was amazing), but rather their export facility was almost non-existant (RTF does not cut it, nor does text-only Word documents).

Of course this is rather hard to remedy (somewhat easier now we have the Open Office document format), and maybe not worth looking at until Cinnamon Writer has the full basic set of word processor features & stability (I haven't tried this new version so maybe it is already at this stage?).

Anyway, good luck with Cinnamon Writer. I'll consider using it when/if it gets decent export capability.

While waiting for OpenDocumentFormat support (or whatever), one seems to be able to "export" to PDF:

Looks very professional, but still, some rendering bugs on os4.1/peg2. For example just run it, and try to resize all the window. Page size not changes automatically, and scroll-bar a bit out of bounds. Need to move it to make everythink ok.

Or for example press "I" button, press chancel on it, and then, all the are over the it in messed colors.

If mayking window 'small, and press "i" again, then spawned window just over the bounds (i.e. some parts on right side, some parts on left side).

Also just try to load "pdf" to it (just for cheking what programm will do, and programm go into long loop which load system a lot :) ) (i mean if it not handle pdf's for load, then need filter it somehow).

But desing and idea are nice, will wait for future updates.

Sorry to have missed this news item. June was a very strange month at work. Yet another reorganization in progress.

I have just downloaded Cinnamon Writer 0.62 which is a more recent version than I used before. It appears to be quite fast and I will try it out for a few days to see how well it works for me.

Thanks very much Desler,
