Can you change the font, size, color, background or line length?

Writer is a tool for writing. All you can do with Writer is write.

It has no options and no settings, so there’s nothing to distract you, and you can start writing immediately. Having no settings is actually one of Writer’s most important features. It’s incredibly hard to make an app work well without them, but we’ve sweated the details to make Writer as close to typographic perfection as possible. For more on the decisions behind things like the font size, please read our article “Responsive Typography: The Basics”.

You’ll either love it or hate it that Writer has no settings. Most people using Writer love it. We hope you will too.

Update: Writer for Mac is now the first native text editor to use responsive design to change the font size. There’s no need for settings, just adjust the size of your window!
