I am not sure if follow ups to posts here are possible, but I purchased
a copy of WordMage and although the application is fine, they forget
to mention that the program is a MacIntosh program that runs under
a MacOS emulator which they provide on Linux. Therefore none of the good
linux tools such as better X windows based GUIs are available and one needs to
learn all the Macintosh mouse and key combinations (yuk). I hope
vendor will "really" port to Linux.
