ZenWriter

ZenWriter a text editor for Windows that cuts out all the distraction and lets you focus on letting your thoughts flow. It’s a full screen, zen-like program that offers few formatting options but a whole lot of tranquility. If you find yourself, skipping between tabs in your browser checking up on email and Facebook when you’re meant to be writing, ZenWriter is the solution to your distracted mind.

Find a button for 'print' and 'save'. I know you want it simple, and I LOVE it that way, but I do want to print what I write. I 'm sure its in there, but for a simple program, you should have a simple way of doing these things that are more obvious.

ZenWriter saves you work automatically, you don't need to do that.
If you think that you lost your work then check “Unfiled Notes” folder in “Documents” menu :)

Printing functionality will be added in next update soon

I would like Zen Writer to quit calling upon the Internet every time I use it. If that goes on and if I can't find a way to stop it, I will unistall Zen Writer one and for all.

If you'll look into you your firewall logs, you'll see that ZenWriter simply pings this page:
http://beenokle.com/zenwriter/version.html

We don't need any of your personal info.
No more, no less. 10 seconds after launch, then every 10 minutes.

Ok. I'll add ability to disable automatic updates :)

Add the ability to darken day or brighten night. Some of the backgrounds washed completely away at day setting.

We really need a way to set paragraph spacing, either through spacing above or below the paragraph or by indenting the first line.

The problem is writers may write a couple thousand words at a sitting, and when we transfer the writing we will have an extra space between paragraphs we need to remove. It would be better if the paragraph style actually indented.

Recover the 1100 words that Zenwriter lost because it doesn't have a save button to make sure the work is saved

easily add music files - I know it can be done, but it would be good to do it from within the UI of the main program settings.

see an adjustable sound control for both music and typewriter clicks...You should be able to make the key clicks louder than the music so that the music is truly background.

Make it portable.

Some of us really like portable programs. Also, writing programs should have a place on the desktop in my opinion, some kind of a 'minimode' similar to a gadget. It sits on the desk and then you have an idea you maximize and you can get in fast....

Import function on bkg, sounds & music. also when it asks you if you want to quit, ask it if you wish to save (if it's not been saved since) Possibly also a auto quicksave feature?

Escape button should minimize the application. Also when minimizing pause the music.

Have an option to minimize on escape.

get the option for random background changing.

I like the possibility to add my own backgrounds. I would find it helpful, if there was also an option for random background changing after a set time [e.g. 15 min, 30 min, 45 min ...].

More options for editing text

Fun program, but give us more text-editing functionality. (Yes, I did find the bold, italic etc, but I want more. Stylesheets?) And let those who crave buttons to work with have an option to use buttons. (I really do NOT need them, but working...

This ZenWriter is simply wonderful!

The minimalist interface is just what I wanted; I have complex text processors if I need them. I liked, however, the thing that Ctrl-B, Ctrl-I, Ctrl-R,... -E etc. are working! even in the background, hidden, with no buttons or complicated...

Add an easier way to save the file and a way to adjust how bright the day theme is. It would be cool if there were certain backgrounds for the Day theme and Night theme.

Day theme can have day backgrounds and night theme can have night backgrounds. The original backgrounds would be included in both. Add more music choices too

Have the background images brighten or darken in step with the local time on the computer's clock. Very harmonious with the surroundings and more Zen than having an abrupt changeover switch. (Great program though, I love it).

It would be nice to at least be able to hit a button and copy the text to the clip bord. Better still, let me save it to a text file for use in other application once the writing is done. Highlight/copy/open/paste kinda buzz kills the whole deal at t

music

You should be able to change it from shuffle, replay or just normal play so it cycles through the songs, so it's not the same song over and over again.

Being able to resize would be nice. And being able to import your own music as well.
