» WordSmith 2.0 Previe... FineType
As noted by a recent and ongoing VisorCentral poll, WordSmith 2.0 was one of the most popular PCEXPO items. WordSmith 2.0 includes many improvements, but the coolest one is FineType. FineType brings a proprietary font
technology, similar to Microsoft's Cleartype to any color palm (Visor Prism, Palm m505, Sony n710c etc...). This kind of font technology utilizes anti-aliasing – which is making the side pixels lighter color, so they help smooth things out, and Sub pixels. Sub pixels work by only using 1/3 of the pixel. You can get 3 times the horizontal resolution because of this. See this page for more info on how this work. As an added bonus, WordSmith 2.0 is a free upgrade to all registered users. It will be available by the end of July.
WordSmith 2.0 includes many new features. Some of the most prolific are:
Full Bookmark support: Create, Count, hide, Show, and go to WordSmith will now preserve most page layout features
Ability to create and view footnotes
A enhanced find and replace
New security settings let you set a different password for each document
Everything that was in WordSmith 1.1, and more.
