Writer v1.9 is here, and it's really neat!

Writer v1.9 is here, and it's really neat! 8/17/2019   Hello, everyone! Tectra Writer v1.9 is here! This update makes some notable improvements and fixes a  huge   bug that has plagued Writer since its launch. Keep reading to learn more! What's new: Look up words:  Need to look up some specific text in your document? Just highlight it and press the lookup button or CTRL+L! This will search Google for your selection. Check for plagiarism:  This feature allows you to check the current document for plagiarism. Pretty handy! Find and replace:  I've been needing to add these features for a while. They are here now and they work as intended. This was definitely a worthwhile addition to Writer! Bug fixes:  This update fixes quite a few bugs. Most notably, the infamous printing bug. In previous releases, Writer wouldn't wrap text when it printed a document. Fear not, that bug has been brutally squashed alongside a few others! That's about all that's new in version 1.9.

New update for the Lynx Legacy Editor

New update for the Lynx Legacy Editor 8/16/2019   Lynx for Windows has received a new update! Wait a minute... that's not its name anymore! Yes, Lynx for Windows is now the Lynx Legacy Editor. I want to clarify this to keep confusion with the Online Editor at a minimum. Anyway, here is what's new with the Lynx Legacy Editor in version 2.5! Higher quality drawings:  Lynx now draws graphics at a much higher quality. It is much more comparable in quality to the Online Editor than before thanks to this update! Name change:  As previously mentioned, Lynx for Windows is now the Lynx Legacy Editor! Bug fixes:  We have found and squashed some bugs in this update. Hooray! Before I end this post, I would like to mention that I probably won't be releasing any updates to the Legacy Editor for a long time. I want to focus on the Online Editor instead. I hope that you all understand. Thanks for reading and have a great day!

The next generation of Lynx is here!

The next generation of Lynx is here! 8/8/2019   The release of Lynx for Windows was a turning point for Tectra. It was the beginning of a new era. However, it is with a heavy heart that I announce that Lynx for Windows has been replaced. The good news is that its successor, the Lynx Online Editor, runs completely in your browser. No downloads required! It also introduces several neat features. Before I go any further, I would like to clarify that Lynx for Windows is still in development. However, it will be receiving updates much less frequently. That aside, there are several reasons why the Lynx Online Editor is a good replacement for Lynx for Windows. For one, it doesn't require any downloads. Second, it works on mobile devices and computers alike. Finally, you don't have to worry about downloading updates. At the time of writing this, I can think of several more advantages to using the online editor. However, I think I'll end the list here. In conclusion, it is sad to se

Run Lynx... in your browser?!

Run Lynx... in your browser?! 8/6/2019   Lynx for Windows is awesome, but it has some problems. It only works on Windows, it can be a bit finicky, and you have to download it to use it. Wouldn’t it be cool if it could run in your browser? Now it can! The Lynx Online Editor is a project that I have been working on for a while. It can run on your laptop, tablet, and cell phone. It also gets rid of some of the annoyances of Lynx for Windows, which is nice. You can click on the button below to try out the Online Editor. Enjoy! CHECK IT OUT
