AbiWord: Messes with Documents folder?

Submitted by justin on January 3, 2006 - 7:59pm

When I try to save something in PortableAbiWord, and I click on "My Documents" on the left of the open/save box, it brings me to the My Documents folder that you included with the AbiWord package. Then, after that, when I try to go to "Justin's Documents" in "Files Stored In This Computer" in My Computer, it defaults to this new directory that is included in the PortableAbiWord package. I have to System Restore to fix the problem. It does however, let me get to my real documents when I go to Start>My Documents. Maybe to fix this, one could rename the included folder to something Windows won't do anything special with, such as "Documents". Or, one could just eliminate that folder altogether and just have people save to their USB sticks.

I used PortableAbiWord this morning to type a paper at school. I must say I'm impressed. I like it a lot better than MS Word!

Thanks (for all of the wonderful work you're done) Mr. Haller!

Sorting in AbiWord

I like AbiWord quite a bit, but found that the lack of a "sort" feaure was irrating. I had to copy the text to another word processor, sort it, and copy it back. The feature request was first made in the late 1990s, but there only seems to be a slight few people who want it, so it doesn't become a big priority for them.

I've Scanned Portable Apps Suite Light with an online antivirus, and found this:



I heard about Trojan/Virus Issue, but I'm a Little afraid, Aniway. Is it normal?
