To mark IDC Herzliya’s 20th anniversary, we spent a day following Prof. Uriel Reichman, IDC’s founder and president, and Jonathan Davis, VP for External Relations, around its delightful campus.
A justifiable worry that you probably have is: What kind of format is my work going to be saved as and will other people be able to view my documents? The documents are saved as a DWD (Davka Word Documents) file and people who don’t own DavkaWriter can view your documents with the DavkaViewer. The DavkaViewer is available free of charge and can be downloaded from www.davkawriter.com/download.html. If you do not have access to the Internet, the DavkaWriter Platinum has it included on the installation disk for your convenience.
For those who have purchased earlier versions:
I know that most people who have purchased 3.2 are still debating whether to upgrade or not, especially because all of the features I have listed so far are already in 3.2. Well, here are some of the features you have been waiting for and I think these features will speak for themselves.
Today, more and more people have their own websites and yet they don’t know a thing about HTML. However, they still want to put their documents up on their website. DavkaWriter 4.0 has a fantastic export feature that allows you to export your Hebrew or English documents to HTML seamlessly.
Those that are heavy word processor users and that have to type up a variety of different types of documents using many different fonts, styles, etc. The power styles will allow you a fast and efficient solution that will do the job automatically. Also, an improved precise paragraph formatting feature will provide you with a handy dialog box where you can set all attributes.
4.0 has an enhanced print preview option that allows you the ability to display up to six pages at a time (side by side). The pages can also be viewed in Hebrew or English direction. Notice a mistake in your document while in preview mode? Now you can edit the document while in preview mode.
Printing labels and envelopes is now a simple task with the label and envelope printing feature. The feature gives the user a wide variety of Avery label templates. These templates will ensure that the text prints out exactly where on the label and envelope you want it.
The following were just some of the features that are packed into this program.
The DavkaWriter program is compatible with any PC that runs any of the following windows operating systems: 98, ME, NT, 2000 and XP. (Sorry Windows 95 users, 4.0 is a little too much for your system.) At least 64MB (Mega Bytes) of RAM is necessary, a CD-ROM drive and a printer (if you want to print out your documents).
I have given you but a glimpse of the features and capabilities this program has. To be quite honest, DavkaWriter Platinum is still practically the best Hebrew/English word processing program I have ever come across, and if you ask me, this program is still definitely worth looking into.
DavkaWriter Platinum can be purchased directly from Davka at www.davka.com or at your local Jewish bookstore.
