PFS:Write 2.x

PFS:Write, originally from Software Publishing Corporation and later sold to Spinnaker Software, was an early and easy to use word processor for the IBM PC and Apple II. It was also licensed by IBM as IBM Writing Assistant. It can exchange data between PFS:Graph, PFS:File, and PFS:Report. SPC later replaced PFS:Write with Professional Write. Early versions had no built in spell checker, and were instead used with PFS:Proof.


Release notes

PFS:Write 2 from Spinnaker Software is a DOS based word processor/desktop publishing program with a graphical WYSIWYG mode. It includes Ancier Technology's Publisher's Powerpak printing system and Antech's FastFonts.

Around 1990, Software Publishing Corporation sold the PFS: series rights to Spinnaker. However, this releases seems to have little in common with SPC's original 1980s PFS:Write.

It is hard to tell. Other than the name, this may not be directly related to the original 1980s PFS:Write.

Note: The 1980s releases use "A" "B" and "C" as version numbers.
