My favourite text editor on the Amiga was always Interword. It came on the CU Amiga august 1993 cover disk and is fantastic! It has a very sparse interface and just the features you'll need to get writing done. I wrote school assignments on my Amiga well into the late 90's and possibly early 2000's using Interword.

The company that made interword also made interoffice, but I don't have much experience with the other programs in that package. I'm sure they're at least competent.

I urge everyone to give it a try. I don't know if it's a full word processor but for creative writing or to just get in the zone and write it has worked wonderfully for me. I am actally using it to flesh out a game design at the moment. I still find it very easy to use.

Thanks a lot for that suggestion.

I really love it when I get contemporary hints from people who have been there back then and used the Amiga for something actually.

I recently browsed through an old WB-install of a system I acquired and it really felt like a time warp.

My impression is that especially in terms of software we forget how things worked even a few years ago.

Thanks a lot!

I use Excellence! to write articles for K&A Plus. Very solid and simple, perfect for ASCII editing.

I read today that it was the first WYSIWYG word processor on the system, not sure if that is true.
