PolyEdit Lite

PolyEdit Lite omits some advanced features of the regular commercial version, PolyEdit 5.4. However, for personal individual use, it has virtually all the features a writer would need, making it quite possibly the most powerful personal word processor in the Windows environment.

What works

The app runs on Wine quite well, apparently, as long as the features requested by the user are contained in the program's code. Features that rely on Windows' services do not work.

What does not

• PDF export, for it requires the user to assign a printer through Windows' hardware control panel. In particular, the doPDF v7 virtual printer, which produces the smallest PDF files, is not available for use.

• Spelling dictionaries cannot be installed in Wine.


What was not tested

I have not tested all the program features in Wine but it seems clear that only the self-contained features work under Wine at the moment.

Additional Comments

There is no comparable word processor in the Linux environment to PolyEdit Lite. AbiWord falls short of PolyEdit Lite. LibreOffice Writer is excellent but is a much larger and more complex program not always suitable for personal writing tasks. PolyEdit Lite fills the niche nicely.
