Many nifty little improvements of late.  Here’s one this week:

This version introduces a new Spotlight feature. The Spotlight is a view mode dimming out everything except the fragment of document you are working on:

The only thing which keeps Atlantis from being the best word processor available for any platform is the lack of comments. I use it for first drafts but then have to switch for revisions. It’s frustrating because they’ve a lot of bells and whistles which are far less useful.

Small, quick and plenty of features. A very good replacement for MS Word, but unfortunately not for general technical writing.

a) Equations written with the new MS editor: they cannot be seen in a docx using Atlantis and are deleted after saving it;
b) Classic (OLE MS Equation 3.0)  equations: they are turned into simple images and cannot be edited afterwards.

Other good MS Word replacements are able to manage equations of type b): WPS (Kingsoft) Writer and Textmaker come to mind. I hope to be wrong, but I do not know any replacement that is able to manage equations of type a).

You are correct Atlantis is not a replacement for MS Word and some others, it’s not meant to be in my opinion. To me it is best as a straight forward word processor (manipulator). I also have MS Word for only one reason; it handles the copy and paste formatting from email like no one else can (I’ve tried Kingsoft, Libre office, etc).

Atlantis is currently on Bits du Jour, and should be tomorrow as well:
