Mac Write
With MacWrite you create documents that look the same on the screen as they'll look when you print them. Rather than working around a lot of commands embedded in your text, you always see what you've really got. You use the mouse to select text and remove,
copy, or move it. You can customize your documents with many fonts and styles, and you can control margins or line spacing with a single dick.
You can add MacPaint or MacDraw graphics to documents you create with MacWrite or vice versa. With Macintosh, words and pictures mix beautifully.

MacWrite was a word processor application released along with the first Apple Macintosh systems in 1984. It is important as the first such program that was widely available to the public to offer WYSIWYG operation, with multiple fonts and styles. Together with MacPaint, it was one of the two original "killer applications" that propelled the adoption and popularity of the GUI in general, and the Mac in particular.

MacWriteU Things changed in the later 1980s with the introduction of MacWrite II. The main changes for this release were an updated user interface, a number of new "style" capabilities, and the inclusion of Claris's file translator technology, XTND.
MacWrite II was the first really new version of the software. By 1989 Word already dominated the Mac with about 60% market share, but the introduction of MacWrite II changed things dramatically; by 1990 Word had dropped to about 45% of the market, and MacWrite about 30%. This seemed to demonstrate that it would be worth developing further, but Claris did not respond quickly with updated versions.
Mac Write Pro In the late 1980s Claris started a massive upgrade series to produce the "Pro" line of products.
