What was the point you were trying to make? If there was one, it seems to have got lost in an incoherent rant!

I thought Hewson’s article was interesting, though he seems to be surprisingly uncritical of Word 2013 as an editing tool. I have read reviews of it that suggest that in some respects it is less suited to that role than older versions of Word.

Like Hewson, I now use Scrivener for Windows but I think it is only fair to put in a plug for yWriter, which has much of the same functionality and some useful extra functions (at least for writers of fiction) and, particularly important for impoverished writers, is freeware.
