Text87 Plus 4

Text87 Plus4 is an upgraded version of the original Text87 word processor for the Sinclair QL.

The Plus4 version is a complete re-write of the original software, incorporating the QTyp spelling checker, and requires at least 256K extra memory, plus a disk drive and a monitor (as it makes full use of the 512x256 screen resolution of the QL). Later patches were released to allow Text87 Plus4 to use even higher screen resolutions.

Text87 Plus4 also allows you to use multiple windows and multiple files at the same time - although to allow this, you have to specify the amount of extra room to be set aside for each document when loading (ie. the maximum amount of memory which your changes to the document will be allowed to use). It also introduces the ability to add Text Sections (for marking, formatting or extracting) and multiple layouts for each document.

A separate Text87 Plus4 Patch is available which allows you to patch the program to run in high colour displays. French, German and Italian versions were also produced.
