To be honest I never liked Finalwriter, it never seemed 'amiga like' more windozy to me


Me neither, it had a bit of a custom-looking interface which put me off. I'm willing to convert though, this is excellent news!

As I discovered with my Epson Expression Home XP-302, it works flawlessly with MorphOS (under USB Poseidon Stack) and Turboprint settings of old EpsonC84.

Here is the thread in which I announced it:

http://amigaworld.net/modules/newbb/v ... _id=38957&forum=46#732969

Someone with AmigaOS 4.X, native stack and CD version of Turboprint should made tests with modern Epson printers and check if they work.

Agreed. A GUI overhaul with AISS support, menus rearranged eg. all settings in one place instead of 5 separate menu entries, colour problems sorted out on 16/32 bit screens etc. although final writer purists will lynch me for suggesting it

All of this takes time. First is fixes then comes enhancements

This is AWESOME news. I had given up hope that this would happen. Final Writer is by far the program I use most on the Amiga (both my A4000T and now my Sam460ex). I've written about two and half science fiction novels in Final Writer (~250,000 words). Generally, I prefer writing in Final Writer on an Amiga. I find there's fewer distractions and I feel more inspired.

I'd love to help you any way I can, whether it's financial, beta testing, or suggestions for tweaks/improvements. Even though I know a new version is a long ways off, this feels like Christmas come early for me.

Are there going to be any legal issues with the Dictionary/Thesaurus? I hope not as Final Writer's Thesaurus is WAY better than Word's.

I use Final Writer 97 as my main word processor program. Quite often I use a nice little script to save my document as a pdf file. I don't remember the name of the script (my system is packed in boxes at the moment).

I have also tried a few versions of Cinnimon Writer.

Code cleanup and bug fixes first and foremost.

Do you think to have early buyers, who can use early builds and betatest them? If yes, then I am interested on that.

Considering all the scams in the Amiga's history I doubt I will have any prebuys.

I'd be happy to buy a working* OS4 compile straight away in order to show support - especially if a few updates were included.

I cannot sem to find anyone who sells Wordworth 7. Not even 2nd hand copies, only very early versions. I have 5SE edition.
Amiga Writer is available from Alinea but thats it.

PageStream 5 was the scam of the decade. I should know, I bought it twice

Indeed. I got so annoyed I even abandoned PGS4 and went back to a very old copy of ProPage.

I have no intention of tarnishing the Final Writer name. So I plan on going through the paces to make sure the next release is a good one.
