FinalWord 1.x

FinalWord is a powerful word processor that started off as an adaptation of EMACS. It is a complicated program that uses manually embedded format codes, but it was targeted at professional writers where typesetting detail is important. Its strength is the ability to work with very long and complex documents. It supports headers, footers, table contents generation, index creation, footnotes, typestyle changes, outlining, tables and charts, multiple column layout. Final Word II adds support for Postscript and user-customizable print formatting commands.

FinalWord supported many early non-IBM PC hardware compatible DOS machines. There were versions for CP/M and the Atari ST.

In 1987 it was acquired by Borland and released as Borland Sprint.
