    "Easy Effective Elegant Word Processor"

    November 14, 2011  |   By prston

    Version: ZenWriter 1.15


    Easy Effective Effective method of writing. Peaceful & beautiful software for writing. Unusually wonderful.


    None, really. It perfectly does what it is supposed to do. It is what it is.


    If elegance is simplicity, then Zen Writer defines elegance.
    Zen Writer is notable for its lack of features...but that is also its great strength. Zen Writer provides the bare minimum of tools needed to write effectively. But it also provides a very pleasant background (from a collection of several...you pick). Also, if you so desire, it plays peaceful music while you write.

    Zen Writer is well-named: it is designed to get you into the Zen of writing! At first, I thought 'how strange' but after trying it for a few minutes, I realized, 'how very nice'. The best way to understand Zen Writer is to simply experience it.

    Zen Writer can import RTF files and export RTF files. So, whatever you write can be imported to Microsoft Office Word. Thus, Zen Writer is a wonderful program for writing pure text, which is later sent to a more sophisticated program for advanced formatting and multimedia enrichment.
