FontasticWriter Plus (1990)

Fontastic, from David W Johnson, Pacific Tri Micro Inc / Wizardworks, Wizardware Group Inc, is a budget word processor. It promotes itself as having many fonts to choose from, making it sound like a graphical WYSIWYG, but it is really a text-based word processor with an external previewer application.

There is very little information out there on the web about "Wizardworks". Apparently it was a small-time publisher. Pacific Tri Micro products were published under other names as well.

"At last! A graphic word-processing program for planning, writing and perfecting text that will add creative "snap" to documents. Choose from a library of more than 25 type fonts in varying sizes to spruce up any letter or presentation. Fontastic Writer Plus also includes 24 pin and laser printer drivers that allow your documents to print out just like the pros's.

Fontastic Writer Plus uses pull-down menus and dialog boxes so it's easy to use! Editing is also easy, and includes search and replace, cut and paste, left/right justification, line or word centering, underlining, and an electronic dictionary that scans documents and corrects your mistakes.

You can also use Fontastic Writer Plus and its font library to update documents from Easy Working Writer " and Word Writer" to name a few. Simply type the commands in your old files and Fontastic Writer Plus does the rest."
