This was the word processor I used on the Beeb. I have a ProWord rom in my BBC B and a disc image for my Master 128. I also have HiWord for a 6502 second processor which I've never used.

ProWord was written by T. Hall, the chap who wrote 'Twin Kingdom Valley'. It's excellent as it's WYSIWYG - bold become bold, italic becomes italic etc. Coupled with a Star LC-10 it gave remarkable results - I did my A-level coursework with it incorporating diagrams etc. into my text. It was pretty amazing what it could do - the listings it came with and manual were excellent.

I thought it shat on Wordwise and View from a great height, but no-one else seems to have heard of it.
