WordSmith 2.0 Available
Blue Nomad has released WordSmith 2.0, the latest version of its award-winning word processor, enhanced memo pad, and rich document viewer for the Palm OS HandHelds.
WordSmith 2.0 features a host of new enhancements, most notably Blue Nomad's FineType high resolution font technology. FineType is an innovative display option for Palm-based documents that makes text crystal clear and sharper than ever.
"With the release of WordSmith 2.0 now Palm users can effectively declare their independence from any need to rely on either desktop or laptop computers," said Alexander Hinds, President & CEO of Blue Nomad. "Our new FineType technology in particular brings such clarity to text displays that users can now use their Palm to support virtually all of their word processing and electronic book reading needs."
WordSmith 2.0 also offers full bookmark support, the ability to create new bookmarks, and the ability to go to, count, hide or show bookmarks. In addition, with Version 2.0 users can preserve, edit, and create new footnotes, endnotes and comments, and can preserve page setup (i.e., paper sizes, page orientation, margins) and default language as well. The feature-packed WordSmith 2.0 also provides a greatly enhanced find & replace feature that is significantly faster, and which offers a new search progress meter, a "replace all" option, and the ability to cancel search and replace all operations. Other refinements include improved support for the onscreen keyboard, and more display options, including the ability to "archive" documents, hide or show archived documents and the tags (icons) for bookmarks, comments, footnotes, images, tables, and more.
WordSmith is fully compatible with Microsoft Word, includes a bi-directional synchronization conduit for Windows and the Mac OS, and offers a command-line document converter for Linux/Intel users. It is likewise compatible with any word processor capable of reading and writing "RTF" files, and is the only word processor available for Palm OS that allows users to synchronize docu-ments between more than one desktop computer.
WordSmith 2.0 is available for $30, and interested users can also download a free trial version of the software by visiting www.bluenomad.com. The trial version allows for 200 editing sessions and unlimited use of the enhanced memo pad and rich document viewer.
