After an exhaustive hunt and with great effort, the hidden afikoman was finally found. This is usually preceded with the lengthy negotiations and yearly challenges some families face on what reward best fits the beneficiate? Especially once kids get older, this task seems more difficult with each passing year. DavkaWriter 6 Platinum might be the perfect gift you are looking for not just now but all year round. Affordably priced and something that the whole family can enjoy, your post afikoman hunt might be finally resolved successfully.
If you have never used Davkawriter 6 Platinum, brace yourself for a simple easy to use interface. The program has a full array of options when it comes to your word processing needs. Don’t be fooled by the simple easy to use interface this pro-gram packs a lot of power!
As with previous versions, Davkawriter has full WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) editing capability. No more guessing what your document will end up looking like.
If you own Microsoft Word and similar programs, I am sure that users will agree with me that although they have slightly improved over the years, you still feel limited in their options and tools as to what you could do with the program. For instance, unlike Word, the word count in Davkawriter not only keeps track of the number of words in your document, but it also keeps track of the number of trop and nikkud present and what is included in the textbox, headers and footers.
Let’s face it; most people who do not type Hebrew on a daily basis are not familiar with the standard Hebrew keyboard. What adds to this dis-advantage is that with the standard Hebrew keyboard, the letters are not phonetically arranged making it frustrating and time consuming for users. With DavkaWriter Platinum, typing Hebrew is not a problem. Whether you are an experienced typist or a beginner, you have the option of changing the keyboard from a standard Hebrew keyboard or to a phonetically styled keyboard – whichever you prefer.
Many users find it challenging and distracting to switch from Hebrew to English fonts and vice versa when typing in programs such as Microsoft Word. DavkaWriter Platinum 6 has simplified this task by creating separate menus for the English and Hebrew fonts respectively. In this program, there is not only Hebrew and English support there is also extensive Yiddish support that allows you insert Yiddish-specific Hebrew characters. Also your graphic editing features have been widened by giving you the ability to add borders around the graphics. You can even insert watermarks onto the page. This will really enhance your document making it stick out in presentations.
The program comes packed with an extensive text library with a siddur, Mishnah , & Tanach. Now you can search these libraries with ease with “FIND FILES.” “FIND FILES” with DavkaWriter will search the library and provide you with a drop down list of all the text libraries installed.
What about HTML? DavkaWriter Platinum has a fantastic export feature that allows you to export your Hebrew or English documents to HTML seamlessly. What this means for people who are not familiar with HTML – no more breaking your head on trying to figure out HTML conversion This facet is great for amateurs who want to put up English and Hebrew on their website.
There are countless bonuses that are included that will make your investment worth even more than you bargained for. One bonus that we mentioned before and is included with the program is a collection of 250 photo and clip art images from the DavkaGraphics collection. These graphics really enhance the design of your documents (i.e. school re-ports, presentations, etc.). Another major bonus is that the entire Tanach with nikud and trop is included, along with the complete text of Mishnayos with nikud. Again, a really convenient perk that will make doing reports a pleasure. Just simply cut and paste the text into your document.
If you already have DavkaGraphics, you are probably satisfied with its features and don’t see the need to look any further, but here are some reasons why you should consider upgrading.
Navigating within the document has been improved with the New Navigate Menu. The Navi-gate menu is a convenient place to find all the bookmark, hyperlink, and chapter/table of contents commands. Plus, it adds some commands not previously available in a menu such as: Next Page, Previous Page, Forward, and Back. Next Page and Previous Page, which are good for high-speed visual scanning of a document’s contents, and. Forward and Back are useful when you’re following hyperlinks.
