Nisus Software has released
Nisus Writer Express, a new version of its low-priced word processor for Mac OS X. Nisus Writer Express costs $45; upgrades cost $30.
Nisus Writer Express is built on the same core as Nisus Writer Pro but features a lighter feature set for users who don’t require quite the same set of features. (Pro adds table of contents support, indexing, bookmarks, cross referenceing and other capabilities.)
Nisus Writer Express uses Rich Text Format (RTF) as its native file format, so its files are compatible with many other word processors. It can also read Word, WordPerfect and AbiWord files. The software supports International language use and can even work in right to left, for Arabic, Hebrew and Persian users (Mac OS X v10.4 is also required for that).
New to Nisus Writer Express 3.0 are floating graphics — text will now wrap around images. Also new is glossary support, widow and orphan control, small caps support and an improved find and replace function.
System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.3.9 or later and a G3 or better (Intel included).
A 15-day demo is available for download.
