For writers who work online regularly, we bring a portable and lightweight application that aims to boost a writer’s productivity and focus by minimizing other distractions on your computer screen: FocusWriter.
Word Processor for Writers
It is a simple, distraction-free word processor that includes support for Rich Text and smart quotes. The application has been designed solely for text, but accommodates a tool bar, hidden from the general view to give access to most common word processing features. Once you begin writing the tool bar hides out-of-the-way and reappear only when you move your mouse to the edge of the screen. This is a prominent feature of the software.
At the bottom of the screen, another tool bar that allows you to view a live count of your words, as well as tabs for all the various documents kept open, is present. FocusWriter can be minized, restored down or maximized to full-screen, depends on one’s preference. Apart from all this, it includes themes button which allows you to create custom themes, with your own background and fonts. You even have the option to save the created themes, and export them to share it with your friends.
