"Not good for Mac"

July 23, 2013  |  By commercesd

 |  Version: AbiWord 2.4.5

Pros

Easy to download

Cons

Crashes repeatedly, does not save files properly, unable to open doc in other apps

Summary

I have used AbiWord for years with PCs. I like to have an extra program besides Word in case there are issues. Today I used it and had so many issues that I don't know as I will try it again. I may do so to see if there is an update - but if it fails again, I'm done with it on Mac. It's too bad because it seems to work well for PCs. When it does close unexpectedly, at least it saves the docs so I can open them elsewhere. That was not the case today. All I had was a garbled document that I had to remove the coding from so I could salvage it in Word. I also use OpenOffice so hopefully there is a decent Mac version. Use this program at your own peril! I could not believe that despite saving every paragraph I still wound up with a garbled mess.

"Kerning is a little odd."

February 17, 2010  |  By sdholloway

 |  Version: AbiWord 2.4.5

Pros

Runs on all my machines, even the laptop running OS X 10.2. It's lightweight and simple to use.

Cons

Kerning is a bit off. Extra spaces show up, and sometimes letters are not visible, although they are in the document. Large documents cause this program to crash.

Summary

For the money (free) AbiWord is a great little word processor, especially if you have to use it on an older laptop. However, f you can get something more stable, do.
