Ratings and Reviews

DrDanCFT ,

Good concept. Needs a some improvement.

I was tired TextEdit needing mutiple clicks for just for a fast note. So a big positive, enough to be 4 stars and ongoing use. BUT even though you can change the menu, it appear to be only for the one use then back to default. So some way to make the menu changes stick. (maybe I’m missing something) Maybe the spell checker could be include in the menu bar in addition to the pull down menus. A help file or help forum would be nice. But definately worth the couple of dollars. It gets 90% of my use now.

Developer Response ,
