That's why I'm sticking with Pages and Mellel. Oh, and I'm so glad TextEdit can open .docx files because everyone around here is getting Vista and the new Office. If it weren't for TextEdit, I'd have people griping about my perfectly wonderful Macs.


Pages can also open the .docx files, and of course, it's now the default format for Word 2008.

If you find that TextEdit isn't handling more complex docx files, or you need to open an xlsx file, you might give NeoOffice a try. It's free and includes import filters for all the new MSOffice formats.

Hi: I am fairly new to Accordance, but Accordance 8 is simply beautiful. I have used Accordance 7 on my Intel Mac, along with Appleworks and Office Mac 2008. Maybe I am missing something, but I could always drop-drag hebrew, greek, or English into Appleworks, iWORKs, and Office. Had major problems with iWORKs so I removed it. Glad that iWORKS works for you. What is Mellel? Jonna from MIchigan

Mellel is a word processor on the Mac, and is the word processor on Mac that best handles unicode script, particularly right-to-left scripts. It also has some good integration with Bookends or Sente for bibliographic management.

I'm kind of a word processor junkie, and while Mellel certainly handles all of this very well, it lacks (imo) some of the graphical pop that you will find in some of the higher end word processors like Word '08 or Pages. FWIW, my go-to wp has been Pages for about a year now. I like it very much, although it is a hassle interacting with folks that use Word (which is, sadly, most of the known world).

Junkies unite.

Yes, I am a bit of the same, and have used Pages, Word, and Mellel each a good bit to evaluate them well enough over the past two or three years. Each has its own strengths and weaknesses, but I run into the same issue that overall, it seems to just be more practical to have Word. Mellel is better for Unicode Hebrew, but after my dissertation, I'm not sure if I'll use it again. And I'm especially intrigued now that Word has a reference manager. I may just simply go back to Word exclusively within the next year.
