I'm told the Windows version, 12, is much superior
on May 5, 2013
The Mac version is adequate for short documents for business, but for any sort of creative writing it is abysmal. May the gods help you if you have to stop working on a document and come back to it later. Editing a pre-existing document is a nightmare, an exercise in endless frustration. While the software incorporates features that are supposed to handle this situation, they don't work very well in this version. If you ever get frustrated and enter so much as a single character from the keyboard, the program can no longer reliably find locations in the document. It appears that the software keeps track of its position by counting characters or words, so if you add a character or word manually, or delete one, it can no longer go to where you tell it. Supposedly, there is a feature to deal with this situation, but it is poorly implemented in this version.
Bottom line: unless you are desperate, wait for version 12. That's the number of versions Windows users tell me were necessary to get a good application.
And technical support is poor.
