While I do appreciate the work that must have gone into taming the beast that is MS Word into a workable manuscript processor, I doubt that anyone who's already paid for Word is going to want to shell out that much over again (Word, on the rare occasions it's offered as a standalone product, usually sells for around $99-129) to turn it into a single-purpose app.

Assuming it's utterly flawless, a professional person who makes a living turning Word output from idiot authors into usable manuscripts might find this worth it, if only there weren't open-source materials that, with a little fine-tuning, can do the job just as well or faster and cost only the time spent fine-tuning.

Would it have been a better idea to post the Mac screenshot instead of one from XP?

The developer makes no Mac screenshots available, and the one you see is the one submitted by the developer. Complain to the developer.

Screenshot updated with one from the Word:Mac version.
