WordMaster is a pretty ambitious program. It uses a 64-column text display, and can hold in memory several short documents at once, up to a total of over 29,000 characters.

WordMaster has all the text functions you could hope for: Insert, Delete, Margins, Block Copy, Underline, Search and Replace, Headers, Footers, Page Numbering and so on. Functions are controlled both by a screen menu and in-text control characters. Unusual features include seven user-definable characters, and graphics handling. Graphics can be cut out of pictures saved as screen strings, incorporated into the text, and printed out in mono or with shading representing colours.

WordMaster will work with Centronics or RS-232 printers, though not every printer will work with all the graphics facilities.

The package is well seeking out if for any reason you find you don't get on with the more established processing programs.

Overall Summary

Well worth seeking out if you need a word processor with some graphics functions.
