Description from the packaging.

Word Publisher outshines other GEOS environment word processors because it gives you more. You can access more fonts...more typestyles...more features. With Word Publisher you can use up to nine fonts and six typestyles per page. The typestyle option includes boldface, italics, outlining, underlining and reversed print. You'll be amazed at how quickly you can learn to use Word Publisher to jazz up newsletters, memos, flyers, ads, and correspondence. Use either the cursor keys or a mouse to move around your document to select editing and formatting options such as center, right and full justification; single and double spacing; super and subscript; tabs; headers; footers; pagination; cut, copy, and paste; search and replace; word wrap and much more. And Word Publisher's composition mode allows for rapid entry of text - up to five times faster than other GEOS word processors. Once your document is complete, spell check it with the 100,000 word spellchecker that catches 99% of all spelling errors. Next, go to the View mode for a "what you see is what you get" display, then print directly to disk or printer in either a fast, draft, or quality output.

And that's not all! Word Publisher gives you a unique option for chaining files, so there's no limit to your document size. Plus, complete compatibility with GeoPaint and GeoFont allows you to import additional fonts or graphics into your documents. You can even place multiple graphics within the same line!

Make a stronger point with visual images!
