Is there an editor designed specifically for writers of short prose? Currently I am using Microsoft Word and it is very heavy weight.
Large technical reports need indices, chapters, heavy formatting (provided by tools like Word and InDesign), and programmers desire all sorts of code hooks, definition lookups, and integration with other tools like Xcode or code control tools.
I want a tool for putting out prose and haven't found good solutions for this need.
Better for writers means:
- fast - especially on older macs without SSD or large amounts of RAM
- lightweight in feel as well as in visual impact
Ideally this tool should be available for both Mac OS X and/or on an iPod Touch.
