    "Great little software program!"

    February 4, 2012  |   By barbnik516

    Pros

    I just wanted a word program, no other software. This is exactly
    what I needed on my new laptop. It's simple and has just enough features.

    Cons

    When I'm typing the letters "jump up" to another line above. I don't know if maybe it is not compatible with my Windows 7. I do a lot of re-typing words in their proper places. This is my only hangup regarding Abiword.

    Summary

    Even though the word jumping bothers me, I was happy to find an alternative word program. I tried Open Office and that didn't work for me at all. If anyone has any fixes for the above issue, I'd be very pleased to hear them. Thanks!
