Hey
I've just been using this cool little program on my Amstrad PPC. However the spell checker doesn't function. Anyone know if there's are registered version lurking around? I don't imagine it's possible to register it still in 2021 lol

I think it became Laplink Editor and shipped with Laplink Pro but lacks the spell checker. I have a copy under the Lapwrite appellation. I will double check if it has the spell checker later today.

Edit: I have Lapwrite 2.0 which includes a dictionary. The dictionary takes 169K so it has fewer words than a spell checker with a current word processor. Academic writing is likely to result in many unknown words getting flagged.

The thesaurus and spell checker were a free upgrade so I was a bit surprised that the complete Lapwrite hadn't been reissued.

Until recently I'd only heard of laplink. So Lapwrite was a new one. But it was a great suggestion and it's a very handy wordprocessor. Certainly better than what comes bundled with the Amstrad PPC.

The Tandy 1100FD laptop came with MS-DOS 3.3, DeskMate 3.0, and its semi-WYSIWYG word processor and spell checker in ROM.

I'd love to get one just for the novelty of that, but a serious downside is that it doesn't have any external monitor output.
