Please note folks: A PageFour license allows for EITHER multiple-PC usage by a single user, OR multiple-user usage on a single PC, but not both. The choice is yours!

If you're a creative writer, you've probably learned a long time ago how to shoehorn your needs into the business-focused environment of Microsoft Word. But what if you were able to switch to a different software package, a word processor dedicated to the needs of novelists, creative writers, and everyone else who doesn't need tables, pie charts, and graphs? It's here today, and it's called PageFour!

PageFour lets you organize your writing in a way that best fits your needs as a writer. In just a keystroke, access character summaries, plot outlines, chapters, and notes. If you work on multiple pieces of work at the same time, you're used to closing and opening separate documents - but with PageFour, you'll be able to work concurrently on projects in a way that's better than ever before!

Remember that time that you wrote the most brilliant paragraph that's ever seen the light of day...only to lose it forever when your power went out? Fear not, with PageFour, you can take Snapshot Copies of your work as you write, with automatic archives of your stuff every few days.

Hard to believe, but PageFour can even make you a better writer! With PageFour, you'll be able to scan your work for overused words and phrases, giving you the freedom to jazz up your manuscript and increase your chances of landing that golden book deal!

Thriftslut I was once ready to purchase Scrivener but a trial version indicated the PC version did not work well with dictation software.

Does anyone know if PageFour works seamlessly with Dragon Naturally Speaking?

RHays Does this app work as a portable app? I see uses for this on my jump drive to take around with me.

Darren No, 'fraid not. It needs to be installed on each PC on which it's run.

RHays I need to keep documentation on my servers and I like the organization it has built in... Do you have any plans to make it a portable app? I can live with it being on a PC, but it would be a great feature to have in this program...

Darren Not in the near future. You can change the Notebook location to a shared folder such as a Dropbox folder, though you would still need to install the software on whichever PCs you use to access the Notebooks.

lisba f Does this release of P4 work with Unicode?

judi bunner I'm happy to say I downloaded the trial version of this software and it does work with Dragon naturally speaking version 12.

Darren Not completely. The word processor handles Unicode, but not the user interface.

InsaneXade Can Page four work seamlessly with location hopping. Say set it to read from a SD card then (with both computers having pagefour) direct both computers to read the SD card, and reopening pagefour to allow total portability that way? I work from an SD card with a program that backs up the files in two different locations. Being able to swap from my computer to my notebook without having to fight with the program would really make this the tool of choice.

Darren You can set PageFour's data location to an SD card, but you'd need to ensure that the card was plugged in before launching PageFour, otherwise it will open to its default location and you'd need to 'reconnect' to the SD card. It will work, but human error (double clicking the PageFour icon while forgetting to plug in the SD card) would make it an awkward solution.

InsaneXade okay, thank you Darren. I'm pretty good about remembering to slide in my card :)

Col- Hectorz Hi,

can you clarify this PLS:

"With PageFour, you'll be able to scan your work for overused words and phrases..."
On the Home site it is said that it's only available if you have the “Smart-Edit” software Install on the PC.
Do I have to bye this 'extra' software to use that option?

Thanks for the free word processor,

Darren PageFour contains a small subset of the SmartEdit features. The separate SmartEdit product grew out of these initial features and morphed into a product in its own right, but the initial feature set is still in PageFour.

Evan Foley Tried downloading, it downloaded a web page, not a program. Now the site says 'too many downloads from this link', click on 'get it for free', which eventually leads back to 'too many downloads'. Unable to download 5 hours into a 24 hour promotion.

Karl M. @Evan Foley:

Try again with a different web browser. I just downloaded without issues.

You can download direct from the PageFour website - it's the same version:


The user interface is English only.

I thought this was rather amusing, and for a short while a perplexing behaviour...

The Installer for this app states version 1.86, after installation the "About Dialogue Box" states version 1.85 but after inputting the registration code and program restart the "About Dialogue Box" states version 1.86.

Quite a weird behaviour, one would think!!?? Hopefully the operation of the app isn't as weird too.
