Sϵv϶n is a formatted text editor/simple word processor. Sϵv϶n has particular support for technical writers writing documentation for OS X applications. In general, with its many features, Sϵv϶n is a capable application lying in the region between basic text editors and powerful word processors.

◆ Native file formats are RTF and RTFD.

◆ Can read and write Word 97, 2003 & 2007, OpenDocument and HTML formats.

◆ Uses the modern document model (versions, etc.) with a special “Save As” feature for pre-Lion aficionados.

◆ Features to assist in producing application support documentation.

◆ True highlighter pen. Ink colours darken and mix like real highlighters.

◆ Live word counting.

◆ Correctly handles RTFD (rich text with graphics) documents under control of Subversion (svn) or Git version control (VCS); other applications often tend to break version control.

◆ And more…

What's New in Version 2.0

Version 2.0 contains major enhancements and UI improvements, including:

◆ Enhanced Version Control System (VCS) Support

• Git is now seamlessly supported, joining both Subversion 1.7+ and Subversion 1.6.

• Multiple VCS Installation & Xcode 5 Stub Support.

If there are multiple versions of Subersion or Git installed then Sϵv϶n will prompt on first run for the version of each that should be used. The chosen version can be changed at any time in Preferences. Sϵv϶n also seamlessly handles Xcode 5 stubs.

• Integration between OS X Versions and VCS.

OS X Versions can move “backwards”, VCS revisions go “forward”. “Revert To...” a version from an earlier VCS revision and the current working copy is correctly modified to match that revision without manual VCS commands.

◆ UI Improvements

• Full screen editing.

Editing windows can now go full screen for when distractions from the text need to be minimal.

• Enhanced window management under OS X Mavericks.

Automatic support for Mavericks’ new handling of multiple screens, spaces, and window dragging in Mission Control.
