Yes, it works, I can confirm that for Windows 7 32-bit. And without compatibility mode.

Which is taking advantage of a loophole to gain free use of software past the provided trial period. Surely an effective 60 days of usage is enough to decide whether Opus is for you or not?-tanis424 (September 04, 2009, 05:38 AM)
I've been tempted to give DOpus another try for its "file collections" feature, without which I'm finding it more and more impossible to live. But the current version is still 9.1, which means I cannot install the trial anymore, since my trial license (and the 60-day extension) expired sometime in November 2007, almost 2 years ago.-tranglos (September 02, 2009, 04:23 PM)

I've just been looking at a few more Windows editors.
I looked at (freeware) Metapad, TED Notepad (great little editor), Crimson Editor (nice), PSPad, Notetab Light, PFE, Editor2, ConTEXT, and briefly at (payware) Boxer.
Compare this with WordStar-style editors. You drop a Start Block marker with Control-K,B (^KB). You can use ^QF Find to locate a target point, or ^QM/^Q1 to go to a bookmark - and the Start Block marker is unaffected while you do so. When you've marked what you want, you drop an End Block marker with ^KK and the block is locked as a unit. You can still whizz around the file without affecting your marked area. It only becomes unmarked when you make a deliberate action to unmark it. That's a far more efficient way than Notepad-style for handling text. True, I believe Boxer and TED Notepad both have limited work-arounds, but not as good.
Do Windows editors really have to be so bad? So much worse than my favourite WordStar-style DOS editor, VDE, at handling text?
Of course, WordStar is One True True Way for writers: here's author Robert Sawyer's manifesto on the subject.-rjbull (January 16, 2009, 08:32 AM)
I'm not sure how much difference multilanguage versions would have made as producing them would have increased costs.-Dormouse (November 01, 2008, 08:50 AM)
