The contradiction is on plain text and text formatting. Plain text is not formatted. You can always learn Markdown and then even use Sublime Text to handle your texts, but I believe you'll be happier with something like VoodooPad perhaps?
100% OS X;
You can have your documents in tabs;
You can create rich text documents, where you're allowed to format your ...
For a much more advanced tool, you can use Wordstat:
non-free but 30-day trial
tons of features, including frequency analysis on keywords, phrases, derived categories or concepts, or user-defined codes entered manually within a text:
I think that it would be a good idea to take a look at using Markdown or ReStructuredText + Pandoc - You can use markdown/rst just like you do on SO and then convert it to any of a number of document formats, including ODT and MS .docx while the extended markdown is very flexible and powerful.
Pandoc input and output formats:
Input formats: docbook, ...
Since you want to produce a document where all the text is in the same direction, rotating the text in the word processor is not a good approach. You'll be limited to cumbersome interfaces designed for a one-off image-like object.
Produce the text normally and rotate the output from the word processor. Make sure to select the correct page size, with the ...
A friend and I have created Chordastic that can help you. It has a feature that repeats the chords on the same lyrics while you enter the chord.
This way you could
load the file using the text editor or song import (if it's Chordpro file),
put the chords only at the first verse and
watch the rest of the chords filled by automatically.
The software is free ...
Pages from Apple - $9.99
It has an extremely usable touch based interface. Supports Word import/export, uses iCloud, ad-free. Rich text formatting, images, tables, stores files locally and syncs them when internet is available.
The downsides are lack of Open Document format support and other cloud storages besides iCloud.
iCloud Word support
export: Go ...

The trick that you can use is to edit your text on your phone in "plain text" using one of the mark up languages that includes support for mathematical mark-up examples include ReStructuredText and markdown, there are cheat sheets galore on the net for both. Saving them to a location that you can access from your computer and using a tool to generate the ...
Almost all modern word processors have this as an option. For some examples:
In Google Docs - Select View and un-tick Page Layout
Word 2010 - On the View tab select Web Layout
LibreOffice Writer - View - Web Layout
All produce the required results - i.e. no page breaks.
I've used CutePDF Writer (free) (http://www.cutepdf.com/Products/CutePDF/writer.asp) for years, as I've found it to produce consistently good results with small file sizes. Highly recommend it if you haven't tried it. Using CutePDF, I too was able to get a smaller PDF file than the one in your document upload (366KB).
Consider using the LEADTOOLS ePrint virtual printer driver and file converter (https://www.eprintdriver.com/). You can select one or more Word files and "print" them to a virtual PDF printer. Using this, I was able to obtain a PDF output of size smaller than your PDF output.
If you are a programmer creating your own application, you could also consider ...
LaTeX is a document preparation system. Strictly speaking, LaTeX is a markup language built on top of the TeX typesetting system; more generally “LaTeX” can mean a set of tools built around the typesetting system.
With LaTeX, you don't (usually) interact with a WYSIWYG editor. Instead, you type text with macro calls, like this:
pandoc has already been mentioned... it is also my favorite tool for this kind of task.
But missing in the previous answer was the following important fact about Pandoc:
command line parameter: --reference-odt=...
for example: --reference-odt=myref.odt
Pandoc will read the styles defined in myref.odt and apply them to the ODT output document it generates....
Word processors are different from HTML editors.
Typically word processors are a kind of general-purpose software which you can compose letters, reports, even writing books can be done by word processors. They also provide extensive feature to format documents.
HTML editors are text-editors that can handle HTML files, and those are frequently used by web ...
Another WYSIWYG HTML builder is BlueGriffon. Similar to Kompozer but I found it a little easier to use. BlueGriffon is still under development and the latest version was released in November, 2017. There are nice tutorials for both on the internet.
SageMath provides a Jupyter Kernel which allows you to create notebooks that mix text, (in markdown), and actual sage code, (including the results of running the code & rendering the markdown). See here or here for more.
While the display of latex or MathJax is still using the same syntax you can see the results immediately, just press ctrl-enter to ...
There are a few solutions that try to offer the full LibreOffice experience on Android / iOS, but those are usually very big and a bit clunky to use.
As a lightweight solution on both iOS and Android I'd recommend to check out our app: https://opendocument.app/ - let me know if you have any questions.
You can use Google Docs. It is free for personal use.
You can upload a Microsoft Word document from your device (File -> Open -> Upload) and edit it then download it as a Microsoft Word document (File -> Download -> Microsoft Word). You can also download it as a PDF file or EPUB document. If you want to email it, you can do that too.
If you are strictly interested specifically in WordStar clones, there’s WordTsar. If other “simple” programs are acceptable, you might want to consider a Markdown editor like Typora. I’ve used Typora on Windows, and find it useful, though limited; if you need control over e.g., the font and margins, Typora isn’t for you.
I can’t speak to WordTsar; when I was ...
MS Word will already do this for you. I can confirm that I just tested the answer to this question, and it works.
Go to the Insert tab, then click on Object (it is in the text sub-category over near the far right). You will then see the following screenshot:
Browse to the file, and check the "Link to file" box. You can either update the source file (I ...
One option to look at is Sphinx which can output multiple formats of documentation.
Text is stored as reStructured text which is plain text so easily version controlled.

Here's how to do it in Python 3. This program has all the requested features except for color highlighting, because the Win32 console only supports color as of the Threshold 2 Update for Windows 10. Most of the complexity of the program is for handling the case of multiple suggestions.
import sys, re, collections
context_size = 30

LibreOffice suite's Writer can import several images by just dropping them from Windows Explorer. (I have not installed OpenOffice on this computer, but it probably will work similarly) But dropping them inside the application is just a part of the process. In this case all the photos will be stacked one on top of each other and you need to manually arrange ...
