Word Processing For VIC-20

United Microware Industries has introduced Wordcraft 20, a personal word-processor for VIC-20 users – a fully featured cartridge program with 8K of RAM (Random Access Memory). Wordcraft 20 is available from UMI dealers for $269.95.

With Wordcraft 20, documents are displayed on the screen and printed exactly as typed, so editing is visually simplified. And automatic four-direction scrolling permits com­plete viewing of its 99-character by 66-line page capacity.

Characters, words, and large copy blocks can be deleted, inserted, moved, and copied, and up to 40 pages can be stored on a diskette or tape.

A writer can "personalize" business letters using Wordcraft 20's mailing list files, and if electronic mail (computer to computer) is sent, it can be made unreadable to anyone without the keyword.

Wordcraft 20 supports the Commodore 1515 printer as well as a variety of serial printers.

More Wordcraft 20 features are:

  • Page width and length alteration any time
  • New page control
  • Automatic line centering
  • Justified or ragged margins
  • Tab stops
  • Decimal tabs
  • Multistep indentation for outlines
  • Text highlighting
  • Hard and soft hyphens
  • Search and replace
  • Mailing list files
  • Paragraph merging
