    "Inferior to Wordpad"

    September 7, 2013  |   By Taras_Bulba

    Version: Angel Writer 3.2

    Pros

    Enables Vista and Win 7 users to use a Wordpad equivalent that uses the GUI of the XP Wordpad, ie a menu bar, format bar and status bar. Unlike the XP Wordpad it can save pages as html. When you paste html into Angel Writer hyperlinks are displayed correctly without the underlying code being displayed, but you cannot click on these links to open a browser.

    Cons

    There is no View menu so you cannot choose to hide the toolbars, and you cannot choose 'no wrap', 'wrap to window', and 'wrap to ruler'. The third option would give you a more realistic display of what your text would look like. There appears to be no page setup so you cannot select paper size, margins or orientation. There is no 'paste special' so you cannot choose to paste as either rich text or unformatted text.

    Summary

    A very poor Wordpad alternative most people could live without.

    Updated on Jan 30, 2014

    With build 400 you can now now use 'Paste Special' if you want to paste as plain text rather than RTF. The Page Setup dialogue box can be accessed through a button on the top left hand side of Print Preview dialogue box.

    The main shortcoming is the broken ruler. Adjustments to margins, indents and tabs in the ruler affect the page layout in the workspace, but it bears no relationship to the settings in the Paragraph and Page Setup dialogues accessed from the menu. When settings are adjusted from these locations there are no corresponding changes shown in the ruler. This means that what you see is probably not what you get. Angel Writer shares the two main shortcomings of Wordpad which are a lack of a spell checker and tabbed document interface. It can, however, create tables as well as view them. It's main limitation compared to Wordpad is that it can only open and save RTF, HTML and TXT files. Wordpad, on the other hand, can open and save ODT and DOCX files.

    CORRECTION: Angel Writer does have spell checking on the fly, but it is not available as a button on toolbar.

    "Best of class for just a word processor."

    February 17, 2010  |   By alnjk

    Version: Angel Writer 3.2

    Pros

    Small footprint. Very simple to use. After testing it out against four others, found that it does a few good things that none of the other processors/suite do !

    Cons

    The only thing that could be a con is that you can only keep one document open at a time. That being said you can still launch the program multiple times to keep as many documents open as you want, i.e one document per launch.

    Summary

    Clean interface and very user friendly.
