AbiWord is a word processing software that works with most current text formats (RTF, DOC, HTML, ODT, etc.)

The application includes all the necessary tools for formatting the text: font style (bold, underline, italics, colors, size etc.), alignment, spell checker, unlimited undo re-number control multi-columns (two and three), search function, page numbering, import images, etc.

AbiWord is very light, so it is very fast and requires few resources. Even those who have an old computer have the possibility to use it. Its intuitive and user-friendly interface greatly facilitates its handling.

With this application some tasks like backup a file, can be automated to avoid loss of time and data. A spell checker is also available. Customizing the toolbar is also on the program and even more.
