      It is an alternative to google docs rather than MS Office Word because it is online. A great tool for collaborative work.

      birnle Mellel is almost the best choice for working with DOCX files without MS Word. As soon as it is able to export the comments to DOCX, it does everything that a writer needs for his editorial communication with a publishing house. Very long documents, very long and many footnotes, especially Hebrew text editing, sophisticated index features and writing helps, and many more features a writer really needs: Mellel has it all.

      Nisus Writer vs Microsoft Word opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      birnle Nisus Writer is a powerful stable long text editor you can rely on even with scientific booklength manuscripts with many long footnotes and right-to-left languages like Hebrew, tables, headers, footers, images, table of contents, bibliography, index, and more. I work with it since more than thirty years (Nisus 3). It is very well crafted piece of software.
