Awesome fullscreen text editor WriteMonkey adds more features in v0.9.9
To use a cliche, the best just got a bit better. WriteMonkey, one of the very best full-screen freeware text editors for Windows, has now been released as 0.9.9 Final. This final version was preceded by no less than three release preview versions, so I expect it to be quite bug-free (also, I have been writing all of my posts using WriteMonkey for the past few months, and it has yet to crash once).
Besides the usual soothing full-screen text-only view, 0.9.9 introduces several new features. Here are just two:
Export templates: You can now write your texts with Markdown or Textile, and define export templates using CSS. You can then easily export your documents into DOC or HTML files, formatted for users to view. This means you can write a novel on WriteMonkey and easily print it in wide-margin, double-space format for proofreading/reviewing, or create web pages, or do anything else CSS lets you do.
Typewriter scrolling is a feature dubbed "experimental" which keeps your current writing position constant. This means you don't have to keep looking down towards the bottom of the screen while you write: you can just place your cursor somewhere near the middle of the screen, and that line will always be the last line. I am using this feature right now, and it's pretty nice!
There have been quite a few other additions, all of which you can see on the release notes. If you haven't tried WriteMonkey yet and you do any sort of writing (heck, even emails), you should definitely grab it for a spin!
