    Sorry, because of QT i have to switch to Abiword. I will not support QT in any way because of their lousy license-politics.

      There’s nothing I can do about that. Sorry to lose you.

    License politics? QT has been GPL since 2005:

    Hello, this is stupid question, but someone needs to ask it. How to install this on Ubuntu? Thanks!

      Hi Arnel,

      You can compile from source, or if you’re running 19.10, you can place the binary somewhere and run that from the command line.

      There is no installation process at this time… probably when we get out of alpha.

        For those of us who are absolute n00bs … and who haven’t yet figured out how to run the binary from the command line … how do we do that? 🙂

          I’m assuming your talking the Linux release? Try the latest 0.3.276 release AppImage file. You Linux needs to support AppImage… most do.

    I am a little confused — WordTsar opens with a blank document in edit mode — no opening menu (as in traditional WordStar), no command to open an existing document. How can one return to a saved document to continue editing?

      ^KR will open/read a new file. I’ll either have an opening screen that will ask, or maybe just add a menu bar.

    Won’t launch properly under MacOS Big Sur 11.3
