    More info than just a tease is needed :-) Most important would be the ability to communicate with the outside world standards.



    Obviously importing/exporting ODF is very important and will be supported eventually but I make no promises as to when it will be supported. :)




    Thanks for the info.

    I hope that native versions will be released, before you try to solve all the problems, or add a ton of additional features, as it is reasonable to expect new features to take much longer than just porting the existing source code to PPC for MorphOS and AmigaOS4.x, and multiple platforms for AROS. It would be nice to have a working, but possibly limited, version for MorphOS, AmigaOS4.x, and AROS, while you continue down the long road toward providing new features and adding other office suite applications.

    Have you tried Cinamon Writer. It already has support for docX but the formatting is out on the current public release.
    Back at the end of March Desler was asking for testers with a good working knowledge of Word in order to help improve compatibily.

    What is going on with this thread?
    When I try to access it from the home page, I gets a notice that it doesn't exist an I get dropped back to the forums page where I can access it.
    WTF?

    It seems the Morphzone page shows 5 pages but we are at page 4 now, so clicking at page
    5 is not possible.

    Interesting bug.
    Makes you wonder what caused the page count to be off.

    So, if I am counting right, we have four word processors in active development.

    I just figured we needed enough posts to make it to 5 pages. :)

    Hope this will end in a usable program.
    I use googledocs to open docx but this is slow.
    I would surely prefer a native solution and would be willing to pay a reasanoble amount for it.
    After all it's a hobby and that's ok for have to pay some extra.

    off topic: Hmm - selecting this thread from HOME (page 6) a error occurs.....there is no page 6! That's not the first time - think the ServerSW is a bit buggy......

    Maybe admin has deleted some spam from the thread, and everything doesn't get regenerated if page amount reduces by that? Here inside the thread it shows 5 pages, but on the front page 6 pages (maybe it was at 6 pages before deleting something)?

    The issue should be fixed. Whenever you find problems with the site, please report them in the appropriate forum so they will not get missed. Thank you.

    Datatypes ... so outdated :) We use Reggae here.
    If You want to add Reggae to FinalWriter feel free to ask if something is
    not clear or check my internal reggae tester
    http://brain.umcs.lublin.pl/~rzookol/download/progressive_tester/

    Using Reggae one has ability to get aspect ratio / dpi of loaded images which is useful in such applications.
