Apple Word Processing Program
Apple Computer, Inc. has
announced an enhanced version of its Apple
Writer II word processing program.
New features include: horizontal scrolling; text
display that shows the page and line count without having to print the
document; built-in terminal mode that allows access to information
services such as CompuServe and The Source; and a utility that enables
users who do not have a ProDOS user's disk to format a blank disk for
use with the program.
The enhanced version also includes a training disk,
mail merge option, and built-in word processing language.
Data files created with previous DOS 3.3-based
versions of Apple Writer can
be converted to the ProDOS format by using a conversion utility on the
ProDOS user's disk.
Apple Writer II
retails for $149. Until February 1, 1985, Apple IIe users can upgrade
their software to version 2.0 by sending their master disk, manual
cover, and $50 to:
