Known Issues
196 - Wordwrap on dot commands should ignore right margin
Dot commands current word wrap at the .RM point, and should do so only at page edge

197 - Spell check should start at the current cursor position
Spell check currently starts at the top of the document

200 - Justify affects margin settings
When margins are added (.lm) and centering or right justify is on, the margin width is not calculated into the offset for display.

204 - Wordwrap wraps too soon
The current brute force word wrap work perfectly on the first line of a paragraph. After that, it wraps the line too soon.
It's as if the last character that should fit on the line actually pushed over the margin. In reality, it doesn't, and the line should wrap after the word, not before.

208 - Sometimes on first display, help menus are bad
Sometime on first display, the help menus show up in one column only. Pressing escape and bringing up the menu again displays okay.

Added since release

209 - ^OC and ^OJ crash (and bad behaviour)
Under Windows only, if you use ^OC or ^OJ:
- Type one line of text, ^OC, crash.
- Type two lines of text, leave/move the cursor to the top line, ^OC, crash.
- Type two lines of text, cursor to second line, ^OC, no crash.
- Typing more than three lines seems to make it crash proof. No matter what

    I have 567 fonts in Windows, and have had more. (I’m a designer among other things, and collect fonts.)

    This issue also bit Mozilla, as MS library code in Windows builds was tediously enumerating fonts, which did nasty things to Firefox load speed on Windows. Mozilla had an open ticket with MS about it. IIRC, the same issue bit Chrome. (I don’t recall the resolution, and would have to poke around in Bugzilla to see what was done.)

    If you want to do a build that skips the font list build, I’ll test it. It might be best to skip the enumeration on load, and only do it if an operation that uses font requires it.

    Hello, I just noticed that the latest post on the Forum was posted on 28 September last year. Is the development of Wordtsar still progressing?

      Yes, still active, though slowed down a bit. I use it everyday.

      What is slowing things down right now is a re-vamp of the core routines to make them thread safe. The current version has an issue where if (for example) you turn on line spacing:

      .ls 2

      The screen is immediately updated with the line spacing. However, the page count doesn’t increase, because WordTsar only updates the current view, not the document. So, I need to background thread the document formatting stuff.

      It’s not as easy as it sounds, since all GUI work under Windows must be done in the main process, not in threads. Figuring out font sizes (which is, of course, critical in layout) is considerred GUI work.

      I’m getting there, but need a bit of patience.

      I think what I’ll be doing is moving the current WordTsar binaries to a more public place, let more people download and use it as it currently stands.
