We’ve now got a proof of concept of docx4all, our cross-platform WYSIWYG docx editor, ready for you to try. Here is the launch page to run it from your browser. Give it a try in Linux, XP, Vista, or (if you are game) OSX.
This proof of concept includes:
- file: new | open | save
- text formatting (font, size, bold, italics, underline)
- paragraph formatting (alignment)
There is still a lot to do, but with the introduction this week of support for styles, we’ve got a basic feature set which you can use to do actual work (not that we’d recommend that just yet) – assuming you can live without tables (for the moment at least).
It is set up to run offline – it should offer to create a shortcut or a menu item so you can run it again later.
Let us know what you think of it, here or in the forums. Cheers.
