Does that mean that you'd like to select text in a column or some vertically-placed rectangle?Originally posted by Billicus
Appleworks 7 would be great! What features would you like to see? Personally, I'd like to select non-contiguous (sp?) text?
That's exactly what I meantOriginally posted by alex_ant
I think by non-contiguous text selection, Billicus meant selecting more than one piece of text at once. Maybe.
Appleworks could use some interface updates in OS X. The button bar and document windows need to be Aquafied, and the font rendering needs to be updated to support Carbon anti-aliasing (without Silk). It could also use some stability tweaks... I've had it crash on me a couple times, and crashing is very very very very bad for a word processor. That's all I can really think of. I hope Apple keeps AW as a simple, easy-to-use office suite without a lot of bloat - I like it that way.
