How WRITER'S BLOCKS Works
know it is far more effective to organize a document's information
before we actually begin to write. But programs that only display information in a linear fashion provide
little support to the organization process.
Blocks' unique design - part word processor, part spreadsheet - solves
this dilemma. The program manages information in a series of sizable
blocks that can be arranged in columns representing separate topics.
When compared to traditional word processors, Writer's Blocks allows
you to more quickly capture, visually organize, and evaluate far more
information, both under a given category (down), and in different
categories (across). Whether you write complex documents or just work
with large amounts of related text information, Writer's Blocks will
revolutionize the way you work!
