Comments on ZenWriter

Works fine on XP+SP3.

But what a strange beast, a minimal text editor for hippy wannabes. 90% of the 46 MB is due to a few background pictures and music - you can copy your own into the appropriate directories.

A gimmick more than anything.

This was actually a quite fun program.

Downloaded and installed Ok.
Activated OK (About, purchase and just paste the Registration Key)

Music included was "ok", but if you have any special music you want to listen to, you just copy/paste it in the \Program Files (x86)\ZenWriter\Music -folder.

My only objection is just... this program is fun, but not functional.

Yes, it was great typing my text in various backgrounds. But I would have liked it more if there had been more "settings" in the text-part as well.

No matter how "fun" things are, at the end of the day it is the TEXT that matters, and some more options for editing text would have been appreciated. You can use bold/italic etc (use your keyboard, it seems if you are addicted to buttons you will have a small problem here, as there are no buttons for this...), but I would like to have more options for paragraphs, indented paragraphs etc.

So... Fun, but no substitute for a real word processor.

Really, really like it...
For me putting in the KEY was a hassle as there was not copy and paste functionality on the input box to register, though there was on the page. Hope to see more backgrounds added. Love the typing sound. Drives my workmates nuts! Needs more settings for text...but you are off to a good start.
