Titan Icon. "A freestanding executable file created by Codewalker which allows people to access the character creation module of City of Heroes and to be able to enter and view the maps of City of Heroes."

City of Heroes as some might know was a MMORPG that let players play as heroes and villeins. It is not worthy for many things amongst them being a very robust character creation tool with a vast array of costume options. While it's from a game that's over 10 years old and it shows should be useful for creating replicas of beloved characters and designing and inspiring new ones.

I'm getting a lot of productive use out of Draft which is a paid (but inexpensive) minimalist markdown editor. I like the ability to mark drafts and scan back through them seeing the differences, sometimes I resurrect portions of text I had already deleted. I like that I can use it as easily on my tablet and computer, even on my phone. I like that it's continuous save like Google docs, but that the "save" key combo actually creates a marked draft revision. It handles disconnect by becoming read only until the line is back up, but doesn't lose changes. You can create directories for books and add files for chapters. It's simple and reliable and because it costs, you are the customer, not the product.

If you use Jarte (a simple word processor with minimal distraction features) for writing... I have good and bad news.
First, the good: Jarte Plus, a version with a few extra features, is now free. In fact, only the "Plus" version is available for download from the official site.
Then, the bad: that happened because the company is essentially dropping the product. Support is no longer available, and no further development of the product is planned.
The lateste (last?) version available is 6.2, which is just shy of two years old.

Don't call me "Shirley." You will surely make me surly.

If you're an existing customer, then it might be worth checking out if the company wants to follow the Blender route, and Open-Source the software.
