Artworks support and possibly moreAs revealed this week, Martin Wuerthner of MW-Software has added support for Artworks files to Icon Technology's TechWriter and EasiWriter applications. Icon's Mike Glover has also, at Martin's request, asked users to post suggestions for new features and details of bugs to the Icon mailing list.
We asked Martin if he had any other updates planned for TechWriter and EasiWriter. He replied: "There maybe other new features and bug-fixes may be in the new release, but this has not been fully decided yet. Mike has asked for suggestions for new features and bug fixes on the mailing list, so anyone interested in the discussion may want to join it and contribute."
TechWriter and EasiWriter are two popular word processors with MicroSoft Word compatibility and equation editing, among other features. Development on TechWriter and EasiWriter ceased when Icon's programmer Bob Pollard sadly passed away in 2001. Feature suggestions from users so far include multiple undo support, the ability to apply a watermark to pages, auto save and enhanced search'n'replace.
