Yes, I’m talking about StoryView. O4D can’t have two instances running, hence I need to use StoryView.

Here is a screenshot of StoryView, once Fences hides my desktop icons (a simple double-click anywhere on the desktop). It’s not totally distraction-free, but these are distractions (StoryView functions, launch bar to other apps) that are useful to me. (Paragraph formatting is done by StoryView automatically based on my preferences, so formatting does not distract me from writing - but this forum does :)

Ah yes, I seem to recall you having mentioned this before. I understand that an additional license is not needed for this.

I’m not sure what Write Bros’ official policy is on that. From a practical perspective you do need two different serial numbers (O4D on top of that has more digits) and they need to be activated online. But there is no harm in asking for an SV license, once one has splashed out on an O4D license…

OK, I’m not sure what the source of my problems was in the past. I did update my .Net framework recently though, so maybe that did the trick. In any case, WriteMonkey (v. now works perfectly on my system and I’m just lovin’ it.

And it does work with Dragon!! Can’t believe it… Besides the Markdown support, that is another major advantage over FocusWriter (which I still love, just a bit less :)

I’m confused.  What is “distracting” in Word, WordPad, etc.?  Personally, I like to be able to BOLD, Italic, etc.  I even used Word’s capabilities to change the toolbars, for example creating a “hanging indent” capability.  Maybe my brain just works differently.
