I meant to mention something about Mellel. This app uses some unconventional interface elements that are difficult to get comfy with, but I am beginning to use it more now because (1) it is fast, (2) it doesn’t make me jump through hoops every time I start it (like MS Word’s series of logins required to use the college’s license of MS), and (3) it has the potential of doing more things for me in the future (academic things that I don’t need right now). For the past year or so, I’ve used TextMaker 2018, and like the user interface over that of MS Word.
