Atlantis Word Processor enables you to effortlessly create documents. The software looks outdated, but it features a handful of useful options not found in Microsoft Word.
Power Type: Atlantis Word Processor has a word completion feature where you type the first few characters of a given word, and a drop-down list of suggestions appears that you can navigate with the keyboard. The word database is completely customizable in the app's settings.
Tabbed documents: You can have multiple text documents open in the same window. You're even given the option to choose where to place the tab bar -- on the top, bottom, left, or right.
Writer's tools: There is a suite of manually activated proofing tools aimed specifically at writers, including checkers for overused words, homophones, or long sentences. There is even an option to export the text document as an EPUB e-book.
Outdated design: Between its cluttered toolbar and pixelated icons, Atlantis Word Processor is reminiscent of Microsoft Word 2003.
Annoying sound effects: The app simulates a typewriter by producing clicking sounds every time you start typing on the keyboard. This novelty wears off quickly, becoming just an annoying distraction. Fortunately, you can disable the sound effects in the software's settings.
Although Atlantis Word Processor lacks certain features and an updated visual design, it does come with a few very useful options that are not available in Word. If you're looking for a tool with sophisticated proofing tools as well as a word auto-completion system similar to the one found on mobile devices, then give this product a go.
Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Atlantis Word Processor 220.127.116.11.
From The Atlantis Word Processor Team:
Compact, fast loading, but still powerful and efficient, Atlantis will be the perfect companion for a wide range of your word processing tasks. Its unique typing assist with learning abilities, the Power Type, will help you compose documents in less time. The Overused Words feature will help writers avoid repetitions and cliches. With Atlantis, you can convert any document to an eBook with just a few mouse clicks. And much-much more for you to discover.
What's new in this version:
Version 2.0.3 has lots of optimizations to various features and commands.
Has a great 'feel' about it. Simple to use, not bloated, yet seems to have almost everything I need.
Lacks ability to create macros.
For my needs I found this the most 'comfortable' word processor to work with. It's biggest drawback for me is its lack of a macro record feature. I find Word 2007 and newer as having too much, though I was okay with Word 2003 and earlier. Open Office and Libre, though free, lack a 'nice feel', in addition to lacking macro record ability (at least on my version) and paragraph/tab/ etc symbols for Find and Replace. In short, if Atlantis allowed Macro recording, I would gladly shell out the $35 asking price.
It is a very word processor. It has an autocompletion feature.
I believe this is the program that learns new autocompletion words automatically. The problem is that learns wrong words too and then you have to remove them manually which is very time consuming and defeats the purpose of saving time. I think that I why I stopped using this program and then the program expired. I decided to uninstall it. I prefer CesarUSA Text Editor BS2 (from CesarUSA.com) for the autocompletions because it is very easy to work with autocompletion lists and does autocompletions in multiple languages.
I use this to convert Word 2007 files into epub for upload to Barnes & Nobles Nook and Kobo epublishing. IU tried some other software and found this to be the best for that purpose. Usually I convert from html to kindle format but I found that Atlantis does a great job from docx format to epub.
Make sure you go through the manual since some of the features are hidden under the dash and you won't find them without using the manual.
Amazing outline function that is far easier to use than word, an utter lack of bloat, full customization for hot-keys, auto-correct (sorry Google Docs!), ability to deal with VERY large documents.
Don't even bother trying to deal with pictures, no table
I was a huge OneNote fan until I found this program. If you deal with large files and want a cool way to organize them, the outline function really is an amazing way to do that. I use it as a sort of database. For all of you addicted to free, you'll be amazed how much faster you can write with this inexpensive program.
Small app size, supports MS Word DOC/DOCX files (via options in the program menu), lean and easy program navigation via toolbar and menus.
Lacks PDF support.
I've used this program on and off for the last several years, and compared to the bigger WP apps out there (esp. with Office and Open Office), it's the fastest and most efficient of them all. I like its lean and easy navigation via toolbar and menu, and it has everything you'd need in a basic, no-frills word processor. The only drawback is its lack of PDF file support, but aside from that it's a keeper.
