Z-Write 1.2

March 19, 2001

SCOTTS VALLEY, CALIF. -- Stone Table Software is pleased to announce the
availability of Z-Write 1.2, a free update to their revolutionary
"non-linear" word processor for creative writers.

Z-Write 1.2 adds over forty improvements to the word processor, including
new features such as style sheets for quickly formatting text, HTML
templates which allow HTML export to be completely customized, import and
export of Palm DOC format files, a recent files menu, better word count
statistics, an automatic document backup system, and an autocorrect
dictionary, as well as many smaller innovations and bug fixes.

The user interface of Z-Write has been enhanced in subtle but effective
ways, such as allowing Sections to be dragged from one Z-Write document to
another, style commands have been simplified, and text files can be dropped
onto a document to be immediately imported as new Sections.

The update also adds powerful text utilities such as Indent, Unindent,
Strip HTML, and Remove Email Quotes.

With Stone Table Software's Cobweb HTML editor Z-Write users can easily
customize the HTML Z-Write generates. Rich Text Format documents can be
converted for use with Z-Write using the free RTF-to-Styled Text utility.

The 1.2 upgrade is free and may be downloaded from the STS website at


New users may download and use the full version with no limitations for
fourteen days. Cobweb and RTF-to-Styled Text are also available on the STS

* About Z-Write *

Z-Write is the world's 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 today's word processors, offering
simplicity and elegance. Streamlined for writing, it stays out of your way
so you can actually get work done.

you may never tackle another writing project without it," and gave Z-Write
an incredible rating of 4.5 "apples" (five is the max).

Z-Write was one of four programs highlighted on the July _MacAddict_ CD,

The Tucows website rated Z-Write with "5 Cows" and Applelinks.com gave
Z-Write "4 stars and a bullet." Users have consistently given Z-Write 4 or
more stars on Versiontracker.com.

* What Users Are Saying *

Where have you been all my life! I can't tell you how much
my work has been set back by exactly the sort of text-
management problems you describe... particularly since fiction,
at least for me, comes from an extremely non-linear place.
This truly is a wonderful find.
-- Connie Spencer

From my dabblings in fiction, to outlining my next computer
book or magazine article, Z-Write will help me better organize
and present my material in an environment that works the way
I do. Tools like this make it easier for the writer to put
words to page, and after all, that's what it's all about.
And the $20 price tag can't be beat -- more than fair for
such a swift, speedy, and powerful application.
--Alan S. Golub

Macs To Go Columnist, MacHome Magazine

Great Job! This is the coolest piece of software I
have ever downloaded off the web!
--Joel David Berry

I especially like the clean, uncluttered interface and the
provision of the right features but not too many of them.
-- Ian Greig

Thank you for Z-Write. At 20 bucks, it is the Bargain
of the Universe.
-- Edward Rashed

This is such a perfectly designed tool -- it perfectly
fits the way that I write and makes my creative projects
infinitely better organized. Thanks!
-- Corey Reid

You've hit the nail on the head with Z-Write. This program
is destined for greatness when designers find out how easily
it organizes project notes.
-- Chuck Dahmer

* Cost, Availability, and System Requirements *

Z-Write costs U.S. $20 for an individual license and is available for
