Techwriter feature voting ends tonightPublished: 20th Nov 2006, 17:20:33 | Permalink | Printable
Vote with your email clientUsers voting on future features for Techwriter and Easiwriter will have until midnight tonight to send in their ballots. Earlier this month, programmer Martin Wuerthner opened the floor to punters to allow them to decide on the direction of development. Ballot papers must be emailed to Icon Technology in a special format to count.
Techwriter publisher Mike Glover said: "We will be closing the voting for new features tonight at midnight - November, 20 2006. I look forward to seeing lots more votes."
As well as posing a list of potential features for users to consider, Martin also called for punters to suggest their own major bullet point additions for the software. However, he ruled out PDF import, support for Microsoft Office's new 'Open XML' format, and multi-stage undo.
The proposed features include improved headers and footers, the ability to watermark documents, a style selector dialogue box, automatically updating page and heading references, auto-numbering of figures, tables and equations, OpenOffice-compatible file export, Microsoft Word 2000 export, improved HTML export, a tree view of a document's structure, and the ability to mix landscape and portrait page layouts.
