Z-Write Beta Available For OS X

Stone Table Software has released a beta version of their non-linear word processor for OS X, Z-Write. Z-Write allows users to store an unlimited number of documents as a single file, in theory making organization, editing, and revisions easier. According to Stone Table Software:

Stone Table Software is pleased to announce that Z-Write, the top-rated organizational word processor for writers, is now in beta-testing for Mac OS X.

Writers using Mac OS X are encouraged to test drive Z-Write 1.3 Beta B, available for free on the STS website. Beta B expires June 30, 2001. The Mac OS X native version of Z-Write is scheduled to ship by Macworld Expo this summer.

Z-Write is the worldis first non-linear word processor. Instead of the nightmare of managing hundreds of separate word processing files of notes, ideas, chapters, revisions, character bios, bibliography information, quotations, website locations, etc., Z-Write allows the writer to store unlimited documents in a single file!

With support for unlimited Sections of information, Z-Write makes finding and organizing the disparate snippets of text associated with large writing projects a snap. Users are free to organize information any way they want. Move, combine, and print out just the Sections needed. Manage multiple versions of chapters, export a completed book as linked HTML files or Rich Text Format, even view multiple Sections at the same time.

Unlike a personal information manager (PIM), Z-Write is real word processor, designed for handling huge novels and complicated research projects. Unlike "idea managers," Z-Write knows that ultimately your Sections need to be combined to create a uniform piece of writing.

Z-Write eschews the bloat of many of todayis word processors, offering simplicity and elegance. Streamlined for writing, it stays out of your way so you can actually get work done.

Z-Write is available for US$20. You can find more information at the Stone Table Software Web site.
