Thread: What Program Do You Use for Writing Articles?

    What Program Do You Use for Writing Articles?

    Seems simple, but can throw newbies sometimes....Over the last year, for example, I have:
    1 - Used MS Word, then...
    2 - Used Google Docs, then...
    3 - Shifted to Open Office

    I still use Word/Notepad (I gave up MAC's about a year ago when my MacBook ate iteself...) top copy/paste/remove extraneous formatting/links from research material.

    What do you use? Pros/Cons?

    My current favorite is the Open Office text editor. I like it since you can embed links and HTML formatting (H1, H2, etc)...
    I don't like that it won't run fast on a machine that doesn't have a lot of RAM (it runs off client-side Java)

    I'm only using Open Office and sometimes notepad. Usually, I do all formatting once its pasted in my Wordpress site.

    OpenOffice for complex documents.
    Formatting is done in Wordpress.
    Articles, blog posts, and things of that nature I just do in Wordpad.

    OpenOffice has a spell check feature. So does Wordpress/Firefox.
    If I'm writing something in Wordpad, and not putting it into Wordpress, I get a spell check done by WordCountTool.com

    LOL

    I love it when someone talks about their Mac like that. They are just too over-hyped - the hardware and software are actually similar for both Apple and non-Apple machines. And yes, Macs do crash.

    Coming back on topic, I use OpenOffice because it's free, has good capabilities and is not very resource hungry.

    You know I happen to hate posts like these,if i want to read stuff like this i can go to a Macbook pro review on youtube and read 50 000 000 comments just like this one.
    Now when it comes to writing i just use plain old Notepad++

    Most of my articles are posted in WordPress sites, so I write directly in WordPress and use the FireFox spell checker.
