This program is a survivor; bought a license many years ago (May 2005) and has been getting free upgradings since then. Bought a new mini two or three weeks ago and already found an use for this: it is nice to edit the Snow Leopard custom user dictionaries. Just installed the "sort" macro (it comes with the the program -> read page with instructions for macro install) and now I can see and edit them and having them usable by the system. There is always an use for this LightWayText, like when you want to type text for hours in a laptop saving battery, the computer don't even cares it this program is open or not.
Now, the developers are so kind... Japanese cordiality and honor code, believe me.

LightWayText is a great app, allowing working in a variety of basic text formats. Especially good find and replace abilities, as well as making very decent fliers and such. The layout is very intuitive, and enjoyable to work in.

I use it always instead of Textedit, except when viewing some Readme (rtfd) files, which it doesn't support.

And for those who have pc's too you can get a free pc version that enables flawless file interchange.

A real nice wordprocessor to write and share formatted text with my old duo 270c!
There is a 68k version, a classic PPC version, and a windows version too (the last one not in english at the moment).

Only this App could handle my 80.000+ lines text file. Very fast text replacement, saved my day! (BBEdit could not do the job!)

LightWayText is a powerful Text Editor for multilingual word processing having lots of nice features and a high stability. What is amazing about LightWayText is its speed, the flexibility and the expansibility. With LightWayText, you will definitely get what Mac software should be; efficient, reliable, attractive and intuitive! LightWayText changes the idea of a 'Writer's Workshop' into a reality, usable widely from programming to various writing works. There are many ways to improve the appearance of the document; besides styles, there are decoration lines, the ability to change all paragraph indents or margins, to paste in PICT or JPEG images, and to create spreadsheet-like tables. LightWayText supports importing and exporting Rich Text Format files (RTF) and Unicode files (UTF8,16), and also possesses many Customization and Macro functions that will stimulate the creative minds of professionals. Even allows you to complex search with the 'Regular Expression' or the 'SEd script' in addition to the normal expression's search. Even a beginner can use it intuitively and easily, you will certainly find that LightWayText is convenient to use and follows those other easy to use Apple favourites, TextEdit and AppleWorks !!

LightWayText-X is suitable for both Power PC and Intel Macs, and fully complies with Mac OS 10.5 (Leopard). There are also 'LightWayText French', 'LightWayText Italian', and 'LightWayText German'.
