For anyone interested, Mellel announced a 40% off Black Friday deal yesterday evening. (Link goes right to Store page... what they sent me to from the email announcement I received.)

Scrivener is in the process of giving me a free upgrade to v3 since I purchased v2 right before v3 hit (I couldn't take it any longer, I had to have it). LibreOffice is going to be more of an office suite, so you'll have all the stuff the whole Office suite has.If you're wanting just a simple, powerful word processor with good language support, try Nisus Writer Pro. They also offer 50% off if you're an academic user.While I use Nota Bene for academic documents now, I still keep Nisus Writer Pro around for my everyday use, and I have successfully done many a paper in Nisus Writer Pro. It's powerful, simple, and will make you forget Word even exists. If you email the company and get Dave, tell him Nathan Parker sent you to him. He'll remember me and glad to see another person get Nisus.
Dear Nathan Parker,
I am just experiencing a little bit of Nisus Writer Pro and I am a bit perplex. On one hand it is very attractive by its simplicity (the videos tutorial are good) but It crashed also already once on the MacBook 12 yesterday and now on the Imac (both last version of High Sierra) where I am exploring it right now. If this is not a recurrent problem, I will be very pleased with this (though I have still to experience what kind of Hebrew font it can manage). Actively wait and see…

Sadly enough, because the processor seems very user friendly, I will not buy the Nisus Writer Pro, it crashes regularly like you mentioned Michel. I did buy Mellel yesterday night because of the opportunity of the special discount, and will have to follow the hard path of learning a fully new environment if I understood correctly what has been said. I was also a bit surprised by the not very well organised website of Nisus.

One thing is for sure, Mellel will not crash. I've had a file open for over two months, and it only closed when the power went out. But it autosaved my work, so I didn't lose a thing.
In case you haven't already, to get started quickly, click Window > Palettes > Toggle Palettes, and in the Palettes Window choose top left Attributes, and Character near the top right. Then you will see your Fonts, etc.
Then, right click in the top toolbar in an empty space and Customize Toolbar, and drag your preferred items into it, including Toggle Palettes.
The hardest part is figuring out styles, etc., something that others on the Forum are probably better at than me.
