====""AbiWord""====

~**Abiword** is the default word processor in many versions on Puppy. It is part of the [[GnomeOffice GNOME Office]] suite of programs. Not to be be confused with simpler [[TextEditors text editors]] like [[Geany Geany]].
~LibreOffice may be more suitable if you require an advanced office suite.

~""AbiWord"" is capable of many wordprocessing tasks. It can open most industry standard document types, such as OpenOffice, MS Word, ""WordPerfect"", Rich Text Format and HTML. It can save most formats, but can not save in MS Word binary .doc format.

==Installation==

~""AbiWord"" is included in most Puppies, however. **it has a missing library**. Correct this by downloading and installing the [[http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=53725 libaspell15-0.60.6-10.pet package]], more info in the [[http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=77122 forum thread]].

~//Puppy Menu > Document > Document/Publishing > ""AbiWord""//
~or
~Clicking on Write on the Desktop (when set as default word processor)

==Limitations==
~Abiword is okay for small documents but becomes [[http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=435117&search_id=1181345566#435117 unreliable after documents get bigger than about fifteen pages]].
~It may also [[http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=01727 problems exporting PDFs]]
