Editors' review

Here's yet another simple word processing program, iText for Windows. It's designed in the classic Apple Computers style, with a clean and simple look. It boasts a wide variety of built-in fonts and other settings. You can even perform standard word-processing tasks with it.

This program's design is simple and efficient, with an aesthetically pleasing interface that is easy to navigate. You can change its color, which is a fun feature and a nice touch. All of its major functions are readily accessible via drop-down windows or buttons at the bottom of the interface. We would recommend this free program highly were it not for one fatal flaw: We simply could not figure out how to save a document. Nothing happened when we pressed the Save button, so we tried the "Save As" button, and nothing happened then, either. We tried closing the document. A window asked us if we wanted to save it. We chose Yes, but nothing happened then, either. The program has a Help file with a User's Manual and other information, which we combed over to see if we were missing something, but we couldn't find any reason why pressing Save won't save a document to save your life. We tried iText on two different computers with the same result.

If it could save files, iText for Windows would be a fine, simple word processor. As it is, it's not much use. Whether it's buggy or just too hard to figure out, we can't recommend it.

    "Easy to use, but every conceivable option."

    July 25, 2011   |   By EliezerPennywhistler

    Version: iText for Windows 3.5

    Pros

    Easy to use
    All the formatting functions you want - font, size, italics, all 4 margins, etc.
    Saves to any format - Rich Text, MS Word, etc.
    WYSIWYG -What You See Is What You Get - meaning that your page layout will print exactly as you see it.
    Cute!

    Cons

    You can choose what font, what size font, and what margins you want as a default setup, or change them with a few clicks. You can also choose the default size of the window. (These are more PROs.)

    I cannot think of any CONs. It's free.

    Summary

    Everyone I know that has tried iText has kept on using it.

    There is a low-cost version with all sorts of bells and whistles, but I am quite content with the free version ... which I have been using for several years now.

    What I meant by "it saves to MS Word" is that is saves to Rich Text, which is 100% compatable with and openable by Word.
