Description TextMaker 2002. The Only Desktop-Class Word Processor for Windows CE.

Have you ever tried editing a Microsoft Word document on your Handheld PC? After all, your Handheld PC comes with Pocket Word which is promoted by Microsoft as the mobile counterpart to Microsoft Word. If you in fact tried, you probably had an unpleasant surprise: Not only are they as limited as the "WordPad" program that comes with Windows for free, they are also very good at silently removing nearly all the formatting from your Microsoft Word files...

SoftMaker offers something better: TextMaker 2002, the only word processor for Windows CE devices that actually deserves to be called a word processor.

TextMaker for Windows CE offers the full feature set and convenience of Windows word processors such as Microsoft Word XP: Comprehensive formatting capabilities. Paragraph and character stylesheets. Headers and footers. An outliner that lets you rearrange documents quickly. Real tables with repeating headers, joint cells, borders and shading. A complete forms editor that lets you easily create forms with checkboxes, lists, and input fields. And much, much more!

What's more: TextMaker reads and writes all Microsoft Word files seamlessly. Finally, you can work on important documents on your Handheld PC and be certain that all formatting and content is preserved.

TextMaker for Windows CE has been created as the mobile equivalent of Microsoft Word 2003. It has the same AutoShapes drawing layer built in, allows you to use all Unicode characters in your Word documents, and even supports Word's Track Changes feature that lets you accept/reject modifications quickly.

No matter whether you create new documents on the road or just edit and review existing files: TextMaker 2006 for Windows CE is your new companion for mobile word processing.

Imagine that: Mobile word processing on your Handheld PC just like with Microsoft Word on the desktop!

There is no other word processor for Windows CE HPC devices that is as powerful or compatible with desktop Microsoft Word than Textmaker CE.

Originally sold as Textmaker 2002, it has evolved over the years. There have been releases such as Textmaker 2003, 2006, 2008, 2012, and up to the newest versions. The original software came with Textmaker and Planmaker. A Word clone and an Excel clone. Newer versions also include PowerPoint type clones. One version even came with an email program that supports both Pop3 and IMAP.

You are encouraged to visit the manufacturers website at www.softmaker.com for detailed information on various products.

This software is the Textmaker trial version which will last for 30 days, after which you will be required to purchase to continue use.
