Kingsoft Writer 2012 8.1.0.3030

Part of an office suite, this application lets you create and edit text documents, and supports multiple formats, including MS Word ones
A good text editor should be installed on all computers, whether they are located at the office or in your own home. Kingsoft Writer is a program designed to help you create, view or edit Word documents.

Hassle-free installation and familiar GUI

The setup process runs quite seamlessly, without offering you to download products that are not actually vital for the app to fully function. The program comes with a nice interface, similar to most text editors out there on the market. However, this is a nice touch, considering that you can immediately get used to the new software.

Support for MS Word file extensions

Kingsoft Writer is part of a larger Office suit that includes multiple editors, called Kingsoft Office. The program is compatible with Microsoft Word and it can process documents in formats typical to this editor, such as DOC or DOCX. This gives you great flexibility when you need to receive or send files to other people who do not have this app installed on their computers.

Multi-tabbed environment and tweak options

It comes packed with a list of extensive features. Thus, you can change the writing style, the font style, size and color, as well as the emphasis options and text alignment.

Kingsoft Writer also lets you create lists (both numbered and bullet-point), insert tables and math equations, symbols, graphics and various objects. It is also possible to open multiple documents at the same time, as it supports opening multiple tabs. This feature lets you easily switch from one file to another, and thus allows you to multi-task.

Furthermore, the app comes with an integrated spell checker which works quite well and can come in handy whenever you are not sure about how certain words are correctly written.

Conclusion

The bottom line is that Kingsoft writer is a great tool that can be useful when creating text documents. While the program might not bring many new features to the table when compared to other similar apps, it stands out because it works seamlessly.

It does not affect the computer’s performance in any way, the response time is good and we did not come across any errors, crashes or hangs in our tests.
