I downloaded about 15 minutes ago and the program installed perfectly with win 7. Of course I have not had a chance to fully explore it but I have used the free version for years on and off. Looking forward to trialling this one. It will be especially useful for looking t .doc and .docx files.
cheers, Erik

Installed on Windows 7, 32 bit with no problem. The program does say it's activated before you input the name and key with a message to get the activation key etc from the website.

The program seems very complete with lots of tools to use. I particularly like how easy it is to select a black background with white text.

There is a lot of unused space on each side of the .txt file I loaded into it. But perhaps that can be changed? When I tried "zoom" the size of the text in my test file got larger and smaller but the unused space on either side of the main window stayed the same size.

It's a keeper from what I can tell from my quick check. Thanks to Atlantis and GOTD.

i downloaded this before and have totally loved it. i found it interesting that i couldn't give it a thumbs up...it was still there from the last time i downloaded. sooo...to the atlantis people..a solid thumbs up the second time around. i can't believe people are giving a thumbs down.

the one thing i totally wish the program could do, though, is to be able to create a pdf file.

i generally don't have issues with downloading. this time i really had a problem. the problem was that i didn't turn off my Avast antivirus. i saw that it said that in the beginning, and i kept looking for it when i finally downloaded, thinking it was in the comments section, to check which anti viruses were mentioned.

i uninstalled my old atlantis, thinking that was the issue. no. so i was freaking out that i had uninstalled a program I loved, and couldn't get the new one to install. obviously this was my fault. now i've lost my previous settings.

i would spend more time saying the reasons i love this program, but i am worn out from all the wasted time and drama i've just put myself through for no good reason.

all i have to say is..if you're wondering if you should download this, yes.

and turn off your anti virus if it is on their list.

hunter,
There is an option to create pdf files under the print option. You need to choose a virtual pdf printer if you have one installed. Their website gives you more information and links to free pdf software which will enable you to use a virtual printer if you do not have it in your printer choice already.

http://www.atlantiswordprocessor.com/en/help/pdf.htm “Any document created in Atlantis can be saved as a PDF file, i.e. automatically converted to the PDF format, provided that a "virtual PDF printer" is installed on your PC. Please note that these virtual PDF "printers" do not actually print documents, they only place a PDF version of the original document on your disk.”

Virtual printers once installed can also be used with other software and for using as a screen print tool too.

I submitted feedback (via the Leave Feedback procedure above) but it seems not to have been accepted ... "Gone to the great bit bucket in the sky" it seems, so here it is again:

It would be great to have a button or icon in the Menu Bar which when clicked would show/hide or expand/collapse the area atop the main work area of Atlantis Word Processor.

This would enable a useful extra slab of working area to be displayed for text editing, while the "ribbon" could be quickly redisplayed via a single click whenever you need it.

Tony Austin,
Thought you would like to know, that when I was viewing the feedback this morning I came across yours, http://atlantis-word-processor-3-1-1.idea.informer.com/proj/?ia=115064

I had a similar issue in the comment section yesterday when my comment disappeared, The awaiting moderation statement disappeared and later so did the comment, but after moderation it has eventually returned.

I agree with you. Initially while I get to know the application, I like seeing all the options at the top, but eventually I would prefer more working space.

You might want to experiment with the Full Screen view. Tools/Options/View allows you to customize what you can see in Full Screen view. You can tick Toolbars to hide the icons.

In View/Full Screen the typing area is expanded and should you need them, when you move to the top of the screen the icons reappear.

You can press Escape to go back to your original view.

Hey, thanks for getting me to look at the Tools/Options/View options , which I had overlooked in my first test of Atlantis Word Processor.

I have found an excellent option already exists there, one that you didn't mention. If you select "Autohide" then the "ribbon" aonly appears when you mouse over it, a perfect solution. BY the way, these options are not limited only to Full Screen view. Grouse!

Tony Austin,
View/Toolbars/Autohide. Seems obvious now that you have told me. Not sure how long it would have taken me to find and explore that option myself, so thank you. This is a very useful tip.

Atlantis Word Processor 3.1.1 downloaded fast, and installed quickly and easily on WIndows 10. (Possibly because I use Windows Defender, the installation wasn't blocked by anti-virus software.)

As specified on the readme.txt file, you open a registration page on the Atlantis website and submit your e-mail address. A most pleasant surprise is that the registration details are displayed in the web browser, you don't have to wait for an e-mail to be sent. Excellent!

And it works well for common word processing tasks.

Setup and registration process went smooth as silk and it looks like a great piece of work. My only suggestion would be to express the space requirements in MB instead of KB; I initially thought the consumption for the base package itself was going to be 3+ GB and I excluded the clip-art to save what I thought was an extra GB in space. Oops! That having been said, the installation took literally seconds and I'm extremely impressed at how little space is consumed. Microsoft could learn something from this.

I've been using V2 since last giveaway and was ready to buy V3 when I saw todays giveaway. Here's my experience.

PROS
Painless install.
Tabbed interface
Program opens with tabs right where you left them. This is HUGE for me.

CONS
It's great for most tasks, but not writing a book. It can't handle different headers and footers for each chapter. Made me nuts until I found out what was going on.

This is a special build created just for this giveaway. The registration details will not work with any other build, including the trial downloadable from their site, that is why it is protected with the setup.exe/gcd wrapper. So please do read the entire readme.txt supplied in the downloaded zip bundle and do always extract all the zip contents to a single seperate folder before running setup,exe and if the readme.txt instructions do not work for you then try rebooting into safe mode with network support and try again.

Note installing this version will silently uninstall the previous giveaway version so backup the old folders before installing this if you want to retain both and don't have a portable version of the previous version which will not be touched by this.

hunter, actually that has nothing to do with my comment! I said it uninstalls the previous giveaway, itself, not any documents you created with it... no wordprocessor uninstallation would remove documents created with the said word processor that would be silly and potentially criminal damage uninstaller behaviour!

The GotD wrapper for this is a HUGE problem! Even with all security disabled, the installer doesn't work. The activation on the Atlantis Word Processor site runs correctly, and tells me it's activated, but there is NO PROGRAM installed to run.

I will be amazed if this elicits a response at all. I understand that the GotD programs do not included support. That's fine. What about providing an executable that actually installs something?

Having given it a brief try, I am impressed by Atlantis Word Processor 3.1.1. Its basic no frills layout is easy to use and offers numerous word processing options you might find in Microsoft Word or LibreOffice. I think this software would be good for experienced Word Processor users and beginners willing to explore.

It handily includes an option to install the program to a removable drive, under the Tools section.

So far, I cannot see anything that I would need in a Word Processor that is not offered. It allows the addition of fields such as file path, page numbers, date saved and options such as inserting tables, columns and hyperlinks and numerous other useful actions.

It has a spellchecker and Power Type which is a predictive text option and it can scan for overly used words, repetitions and overly long sentences. I have a few in this comment and it has spotted them.

It offers to save in Rich Text Format, Microsoft Word doc and docx, plain text and Encrypted Docs .cod, which makes the documents created here compatible with a lot of other software.

I tested its compatibility with a previously made document, using a LibreOffice .odt file and it had no problem opening it quickly and it looked the same as when created in LibreOffice. This level of compatibility is a big plus for me.

It has a default sound setting, reminiscent of the old typewriter. The sounds can be easily customized. The sound it makes when it thinks you have made a typing mistake is an annoying meow sound. Either it will help me to improve my typing or the sound will be changed if it gets too much.

I started typing this comment within the browser, and the page mysteriously skipped and lost the comments while I was still typing. I started again and realised that it would be a lot easier to write the comment using Atlantis Word Processor and paste it in, as the browser comment box is not extendable as I write. So I am hearing each letter keyed as if typed on a typewriter, including the end of line ping and not many meows which is good.

I had difficulty installing this program, as it would seem to be responding to my install request and then would not install and gave no indication of a problem. I tried numerous times and in the end rebooted my computer and it then worked. I am glad I gave this one last try.

When I registered Atlantis Word Processor 3.1.1 it showed as unregistered until I closed the program and reopened it. It now shows the registration email in Help/About.

Having had a little play with it today, I think this is a good Word Processor to use and at the very least would make a good backup. Having lately been experiencing hanging and crashing with LibreOffice, the speed and simplicity of Atlantis Word Processor 3.1.1 makes it an attractive option.

Just to let you know that I have opened and edited a Word document .doc and an .odt file created with LibreOffice, with no issues.

Having given this software a brief test, I have found it does everything so far that I would have used on Microsoft Word.

It seems to be a more than adequate word processor.

Every time I have a GOTD as indicates a .gcd file--I copy files to another folder! This used to be normal "instructions", being included...always? Anyhow--once, done, and, within that...new folder--the GOTD icon changes...color (to golden upon my computer on the Setup file)!! I...believe (not certain) that copying THEN-CONNECTS that file towards...GOTD: as results in it's "availability" response window...back, again. (I'd recently used prior Atlantis this...morning--not getting this upgrade to...work: since atlantis.exe was still being "used", and, hence...RESTARTED my computer!!! Install...worked, thusly.)

David Ulrich, You don't need to "copy" the folder but Extract All to a folder when you "open" a zip archive in windows explorer you have not yet put the contents into a folder and so if you try and run setup.exe from the opened zip it will not see the setup.gcd file as that was not yet extracted to a temporary folder.

GAOTD tell you to unzip the package, they mean Extract All the contents to a seperate folder, you should also right click on the downloaded ZIP file first, select properties and then opt to unblock the download to tell windows you knew where the file came from so don't add extra security layer on it and its contents.

I use Atlantis Word Processor daily for a journal-style entry from a template. It's small, fast, and simply gets the job done. It's a no-hassle powerhouse and I can't imagine not having it in my software arsenal. Very grateful to GOTD and AW for the availability of this excellent product.

I'm with kalmly below (comment #12) about the "ribbon" style toolbar. Some find it visually appealing and convenient, others visually obnoxious and cluttered. I'm with the latter group. MANY THANKS to Atlantis Word for the easy video on customization options (although the video is way too long -- 6 minutes? We get it after a few clicks).

Installed easily (safe mode) and registered quickly on Win8.

You can customize the toolbars in plenty of ways.

kalmly, it's not strictly an MS Word style ribbon it is their own multi function toolbar to reduce the screen realestate it takes up when idle go to tools menu, mouse over customise, select toolbar from flyout menu and in the customise toolbar panel just find the Command Rows value just over half way down and change the value to 1 to reduce the height to just a single rown. and hit OK the toolbar icons are all still there and drop down when you mouse over the toolbar specific areas. Alot easier that going through all the hard work and time building a custom toolbar as shown in thier first demo video.

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  14 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

kalmly, if screen hogging is your priority you could also select View menu, Toolbars, Autohide
To have the entire toolbar vanish when not in use and slide down when moused over, similar to how autohide task bar in windows itself. This is new in this giveaway compared to the previous giveaways.

I have just installed Atlantis (12.26 UK Time). The software downloaded, installed and registered without any problems at all. Couldn't have been any easier. It appears reading the comments below there may have been some issues earlier, but what ever it was, it seems to be sorted now.

Great stand-a-lone processor. I was on version 1 until now. Not sure about the "modern" gui but hey we move on! Well worth the download

Hi, Atlantis Word Processor is a decent piece of Software, small enough to keep any previous versions on different locations on PC. This latest version (3.1.1) went onto my external Drive (best practice is to create Folder beforehand and install Software there, to be sure all Content stays in one place) Registration couldn't have been easier!:) (for once..)

AWP 3.1.1 has pleasant and much more modern GUI than past versions, same fabulous list of Fonts, Word Count and the rest of Features to create simple or reach Text, whether it is 'ambitious' e-book piece, or something used when composing e-mails, e-cards a.s.o (copy/paste directly from Atlantis) Help is available on Atlantis website, just tap what you're looking for. Good, easy, friendly Tool! Thanks.

fran, going to an external drive does not allow all the content. There are instructions that Windows needs to operate that program and that will be installed on 'C' drive regardless of where the main program is located.

mike, thanks but I did not see a preference about the version (portable or not) and if Fran was to install the non-portable one the information would be of value.

Hi Guys, thanks for further info. Sorry if I mislead anyone. Folder on my external drive (the one I created and named today) contains 14 items: 6 Folders (Backup, Clip Library, Documents, Spellcheck, Temp, Templates) and 8 'loose' Files (in it - Atlantis(exe) itself. Size: 5.83 MB, Size on disk: 14.0 MB. Is that correct also for Portable version?? Or - where else on Disk this Program's Files/Folders might reside?

I really was under impression that this latest version was fully portable, so d/loaded it straight from here (GOTD page) and did what I did, checking that other two earlier versions of Atlantis appear to be indeed more 'scattered' on Drive C in Program Files. Thanks in advance for any suggestions. I prefer 'all things neat':) naturally ..

fran, if you have a true portable version it will be self-contained and you can copy it to a thumb drive, put it on another computer, and it will run. If it is not a portable some of the program becomes part of the basic instruction for Windows.

JustaPhotog, install the program normally, then activate the program with the retrieved license key and then go to Tools menu and select:

"Install to removable drive"

That is where the portable edition can be made.

Hi again. OK, when writing my first initial Comment I did not expect that installation that went so swimmingly easy can become 'as clear as mud' in the end..How come? Everything (it seems) points to 'portability' of this version of Atlantis.

To sum it up - I did not find any 2 DIFFERENT downloads of this Software anywhere, one being portable, one not (as sometimes offered on Software pages), but instead - user can MAKE IT 'fully portable', and that is explained in reply to Nigel in Comment 1 (link to help page with instructions how) After reading it carefully - I realized I couldn't do anything else with GIVEN download of Atlantis 3.1.1 from GOTD today. I created Folder on my USB flash drive and that's where it went. I intentionally didn't want to install it again on Drive C and explained above why. Perhaps calling my flash drive simply 'external Drive' confused matters?

Lastly - TK mentioned that 'installing this version will silently uninstall the previous giveaway version'..
Well, I have two previous versions of Atlantis, and both of them are still registered to 'Giveaway of the Day', today's one is registered to my e-mail address. All working fine.

fran, if you moved them to the alternate locations and or chose a different option when asked whether to install this for all users or not then that will let you keep the oposingly installed earlier version. But I had a previous versions of this and older 1.6.6.5 and then a 2.0.5 from the previous giveaway, When I installed todays it silently removed all traces of the 2.0.5 version.

Version 1.6.6 remains because I used different all users or current user settings when installing 2.0.5 I think, it was several months ago.

Neither of the previous giveaway versions I've had here required an email to register, both had a pre-registered main executable.

BTW I just re-installed the previous giveaway 2.0.5 and it did not uninstall the more recent version but it did take over the start menu shortcuts and replaced the 3.1.1 desktop icon.
But when I just re-installed 3.1.1 to a diferent folder this time it did not uninstall the re-installed 2.0.5 giveaway version from march 2017...

Where I used the portable install to removable drive option all the associated files and folders from the programdata or appdata as applicable are coppied into the removable drives folder to create the portable edition, if your other versions on other drives have all the folders and files found in the portable editions folder then they are seperate and unrelated to any installed edition and will not be touched when installing or uninstalling new updates or old versions.

There are clearly inconsistencies over what happens to the previously installed version depending upon unrelated installation settings that I cannot waste more time on reverse engineering what it is doing and why.

TK, thanks but I did not need the information. It wasn't I that was looking for it, rather I was telling Fran.

Same problem as with other giveaway programs lately. It registers but does not install. I've had this problem since upgrading to windows 10. Installs fine from the Atlantis homepage but then it won't accept the GAOTD registration key.
I'll try the 30 day trial and see if it is worth buying.

MisterC, It is usually caused by the Antivirus NOT being disabled during installation. Not just this program but many if not all GAOTD installations.

Alright I have an issue. Had a previous version installed I had downloaded from GOTD in March. Decided to uninstall that version before installing this version. When I went to install this new version the installer froze and won't install the new version but it takes me to the web page that says successfully installed which it isn't..Any suggestions?

Getting a little disillusioned with these giveaways as i cannot get the software loaded It looked and possibly is a fantastic piece off software if you could actually get it to install

Kevin Taylor,
You're luckier than me......Haven't even got the download link yet !

You're both luckier than I. I haven't even woken up properly and it's afternoon where I am.

I have an earlier version of this, installed as portable, and it is my go-to for a quick-loading word processor with all the functionality one normally needs.

Installed without problem in both the desktop and portable versions. Works well and I can see it being well used as I don't like Word and this offers all I need day to day. Thank you Atlantis and GAOTD.

I prefer to stay with my slightly older, but portable version.

Nigel, this version is not portable anymore? If so, I will stay with the previous one, too. :-)

Karel, their homepage (the first turning flier) says; it is "fully portable"

Nigel, the latest version of Atlantis Word Processor is portable:

Just direct the setup file of Atlantis Word Processor to a folder on a removable drive.
