I agree wholeheartedly with Longboy. I've studied a bit of Hindi, and this tool is a great addition to anyone's Devanagari toolbox. Thank you.

I am currently wrestling with the problems of Grantha, and, in due course, Devawriter will have the capability of dealing with that writing system for Sanskrit as well.


Is it possible to make this fullscreen.

Richmond Mathewson (Developer)

It would be comparatively easy to make Devawriter Pro fullscreen. There are 2 reasons I don't feel like doing that:

1. kapps' screen, the Swami's screen, the Professor's screen and my screen are all different.

2. Many end-users have told me they need screen space to refer to online Sanskrit dictionaries and so on.

It is possible to have a backdrop that blocks out the rest of one's computer desktop. However this will not mean that Devawriter magically expands to take up all the screen real-estate.

Right @kapps you now have the ability to hide your desktop if you want to.

Keep up the good work! I don't want you to think that you're working in a vacuum and that there's no one out here taking note of and appreciating all of your efforts.
