And there's no restriction on the language direction. Type content in LTR as well as RTL languages and in the same document too.
Users can also choose from among the various document page sizes - A4, Letter, Legal & Executive.
Document Info and More
Get document related information both ways - with or without a click of a mouse. With the enhanced status bar, users will get real time info on the word & character count, number of pages, author name and more. Clicking on the "Document Properties" button from the toolbar will display the relevant document info in the form of a pop-up window.
Add header/footer in your document on the fly. Choose from among the options of having them in one, two or three columns. There's an auto-field feature too that lets you insert Page Number, Page Count, Current Date and Author Name into the
document's header and footer directly from the toolbar.
Document History - View & Compare Version
Messed up the current version of the document? Ever wondered if you could revert to an earlier version of it? With Zoho Writer, you can.
We create new versions of the document with each explicit save. At any time, you can view a document's history, seeing those previous versions and, if you want, reverting to an earlier draft.
Writer also lets you compare two versions of a document, so you can see specific changes and go back to version of your choice.
What's a word processor without a spell checker? Zoho Writer's does all the dirty spell checking work for you so that you needn't worry about whether it's receive or recieve
Moreover, the spell-check feature is available in more than 75 different languages. So it doesn't matter whether you are typing your document in French or Swahili.
Tags as Folders
Get the best of both worlds . Tags are the new folders. Not sure whether you want to put a document in the Sales or Marketing folder?
That's where tags-as-folders come in. Make the document available in both the folders! Now, you can click on "Tag Folders" in the Sidebar to view all your tag folders. Isn't that cool?
Post to Your Blog
Being on the web, you can post to your blog from within Zoho Writer. As you have seen above, Zoho Writer's WYSIWYG editor is more feature-rich than a typical blog editor's. Be it Blogger.com, Wordpress.com, LiveJournal, TypePad or any blog that supports metaWeblog API, you can make the post from Zoho Writer. You can add tags and optionally make the post as a draft as well.
Add inline comments to particular paragraphs/sentences of a document. You & your friends (or your team members & your boss) can add comments in a document you are collaborating on. Adding contextual comments is very useful
for reviewing purposes. And this comes in handy for journalists/editors & teachers/students, in particular.
Share your Documents
Zoho Writer responds to the basic human need to connect with others - share a document with others & allow them to work on it.
When you share a document in Writer, you give others access to that document so that they can view it or, if you prefer, work on it with you. And all in real time â€” so when someone makes a change, the document gets updated for everyone.
What's more users have the flexibility of sharing the document with individuals on a personal level or share them with multiple users belonging to a personal/organizational group at once.
Not sure you'll have internet access all the time? Zoho Writer allows you to take your
documents offline. You can view as well as edit your latest 25 documents offline. Changes made during offline editing will be synced with the online version once you switch.
