about FocusWriter · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

What I like about Focus Writer is that it is distraction-free but with an auto-hide menu which functions can be added to or not displayed but with the File, Edit, View (and so on) where you can still access all the features so nothing is lost.

It is fully customizable where you can create your own backgrounds, colours, fonts etc... And create your own themes of which you can do many. I like that the different Font types are displayed along with adjusting the font size and it gets previewed in the window.

I have a few of these distraction-free writing programs with each offering different or added features. And FocusWriter has been just 'one' of the best choices.

Taking the time to customize and become experienced with its features is what I suggest to get the most out of FocusWriter.

(I posted this as a comment as opposed to a Review as I have yet to still venture into all its other feature packed components).
