Word processor recommendation?

Post by Wmaalouli » Sat Aug 08, 2020 10:09 pm

Hi. Any recommendations on a good word processor for the Adam? I tried the integrated one and it's actually not bad, but has limitations.

I briefly tried SpeedyWrite last week for the first time just to check it out. I came away impressed and will likely use it again.

Do you happen to have a disk image of it?

Unfortunately I have not been able to find one although I seem to recall there was some documentation on the disk. I could be misremembering that though.

There was one disk indeed. Here it is. Thanks for the pointers. It looks like it has a nice set of features.
Note: The initial manual I uploaded was incomplete. Here's the complete one. I also printed it on my Adam's printer last night for reference, and that was a painful experience... Damn is that printer loud and slow.
