FocusWrite

1.0.6
21 December 2010

Full screen rich text editor; write without distractions.

Overview

FocusWrite allows you to FOCUS on your words and only your words. No windows, pages, header, graphics, etc. to distract you. Show word count, document name and menu bar only if needed. Set up the colors that please your eyes… and WRITE.

FEATURES

  • Don't worry: autosave is there in case of crash or power outage.
  • Speed! FocusWrite launches instantly, and remains responsive even while editing long documents.
  • Save your documents in .rtf, .doc, .docx or .odt format, so that you can share them and open them with nearly any word processor or page layout software.
  • Words and characters count.
  • Toggle invisible characters.
  • Toggle color mode: use natural colors of your document, or override them with a configurable color set.
  • Care for your neck: let FocusWrite center vertically the typing line, and avoid having to type at the bottom of your screen (i.e. "typewriter scrolling").
  • Only the options you need: no complex preferences to go through, no lengthy menus. Simple, functional, trustable software: don't tweak it, use it!
  • All the bells and whistles of OS X text system are there: multilingual grammar and spell checking, smart links, smart hyphens, smart quotes, text replacement, hyphenation, right-to-left language support…
  • Optional non-blinking cursor, for even less distraction.
  • Always up to date: updates by Sparkle.
LOCALIZATIONS
  • FocusWrite interface and built-in user manual are currently localized in English, French and Spanish.

What's new in FocusWrite

I've tried downloading this twice and each time I try to open it I get this message from OSX "You can't open the application FocusWrite because it is not supported on this type of Mac". I'm running 10.6.4 on an iMac Core Duo @ 2GHz.

With a little googling around, one can still find available downloads of version 1.0.6. And although the developer's site is dead, he/she seems to be giving permission and instructions for re-initializing the trial version status of the app.

Additionally, WriteRoom and Ommwriter are great alternatives that are still being actively developed.

After I wrote the above I realised it's because it's 64 bit only. Why 64 bit only?

I've stupidly assumed that all Macs able to run Snow Leopard were 64 bits, so I only released a 64 bits version of FocusWrite. I recompile it for 32 bits compatibility and post an update as fast as possible. I'm deeply sorry for this inconvenient.
