And as usual Windows conspires to lose my text, let's try again.

O-Pro-dow: Good, unfinished, crashes occasionally, odd, like using unix X progrms on RISC OS. There are a few Windowsy GUI bits, but mostly it's much better, I thought I found a non resizable dialog box that could have used a resize button, but I can't find it now. Needs either instant update of things like zoom, or the ability to press Adjust. Toolbars seem to go missing, think they might be off the bottom of the screen.

There are print borders, woohoo, but they don't seem to work, in fact printing anything seems to go wrong, d'oh.

With a bit more work it could be the best program on Windows, ever, 2! Although I haven't played with Windows Textease, the RISC OS verison is very cool though, I love the instant wrapping of text around graphics as you drag, every DTP program needs this.

As far as its impact on the RISC OS version goes, I see it as a benifit, previously everything else had to be compatible with Windows, now the tables have turned.
