Signs of Life

By Happy Hamster (CEO) in General,

Hi, my name is Alex (internally known as Happy Hamster) and I am the CEO of the company behind Write!.

Just wanted to give a quick heads-up since we’ve been quite lately. The reason for that is that we’ve reached certain stability and functionality with the Beta 8.x version branch and are now focused on commercial version of Write! which will be a huge update, amongst other features, including cloud support and dark UI/content themes.

All functionality released to date will remain in the free edition of Write!.

Write! Beta 7

By Chaotic Chipmunk in Updates,

Continuing with delivering updates and fixes to you, we would like to present the change log of what has been updated and fixed in the latest release of Write! beta 7.
RAM Rational Use
As you have probably noticed, Write! used some excessive megabytes of memory with all dictionaries enabled in the spell checker. Starting from beta 7, the app loads only the dictionaries with the languages that are used in the documents you open. Additionally, you can reduce the memory usage by going to the Settings menu > Spellchecking tab, and checking only those…

Also, we would like to remind you that if you use default settings and the language is defined automatically, sometimes the text you type or…
