A memo can become a letter with just a few clicks of the mouse.
Screen fonts are set independently from printed fonts, so a writer can edit with large characters and print with normal size characters. The program interface is simple enough that using most features is fairly obvious, even to users with a minimal amount of Windows experience.
Document management is transparent, which is another way of saying that the writer doesnt have to worry about filenames. The program automatically stores documents in folders and drawers and automatically lists them in a folder's index. Finding documents later is a snap.
Folders have names which match the type of document contained in the folders. The free versions of Yeah Write have folders for a diary, a journal, general purpose documents, personal letters, business letters, memos, and notes.
Registered and retail versions also have folders for an address book, e-mail messages (send only), faxes (send only), business letters with return addresses, envelopes, phone messages, text, and to do lists.
With each folder, a writer can create a document by clicking on in the index and filling in the blanks in the document window. YW saves a document automatically when the writer exits the program or stops typing for a few seconds.
In addition to standard paragraphs, YW supports bullets, check boxes, indented paragraphs, hanging indented paragraphs, paragraphs indented left and right, numbered lists, outlines, headings, and titles. Outlines are only available in the registered version.
The free versions generally have fewer available style levels. The registered and retail versions support additional options for displaying bullets and numbered lists.
