The times that Microsoft Word is the absolute standard in the market of word-processing software are already a number of years behind us. Although Microsoft Office in most companies still the standard, there are nowadays many (free) alternatives that will at least work just as well. AbleWord is one of these free word processing programs with an integrated PDF editor.
AbleWord (not to be confused with AbiWord) is a freeware text and PDF editor. Thus, it is actually a versatile word processor no matter in what format the document is saved. Also, an edited document is then saved directly as PDF-file. However, this is not a unique feature anymore since Microsoft this for some time in its word processor Microsoft Word has included.
The layout of the program is approximately the same as that of Word. It is therefore not difficult for this program to get the hang of. It contains all the basic functions of this paid competitor such as the use of headers and footers, customizing images, adding tables, and an integrated spelling checker.
All in all AbleWord just a very friendly word processor that does what it promises without trying to let you upgrade to a paid version or other tricks. On the other hand, distinguishes itself not by a special design or innovative features. Therefore, this program will be suitable for private individuals, but in particular also for small companies which are searching for a simple, free text editor.
