Wordpad Features

It can print  and format text, including fonts, bold, italic, colored, and centered text, etc., but lacks functions such as a spell checker, thesaurus, and control over pagination. WordPad doesn’t  support footnotes or endnotes. WordPad can, however, render, read, and save many Rich Text Format (RTF) features that WordPad cannot create, such as tables, superscript, strikeout, subscript, “extra” colors, text background colors, numbered lists, left  or right indent, quasi-hypertext and URL linking, or various line spacing.

Among its advantages are low system-resource usage, speed and simplicity. Pasting from  or into an HTML document such as from email or the internet will typically automatically convert most or all of it to RTF (although this is partially browser-dependent). As such, it is well suited for taking notes, writing stories and letters, or for usage in various PCs, tablets, and smart phones. However, it is underpowered for work which relies heavily on graphics or typesetting such as most publishing-industry requirements for rendering final hard copy.
