Frequently Asked Questions
What is Calmly Writer for?
Traditional text processors include dozens of options for formatting text, distracting you from what really matters: writing.
Calmly Writer is an editor designed to focus on what you want to tell, with a simple, unobtrusive and ease-to-use user interface.
What formats are supported?
Calmly Writer can open and save files in .cml format, which are in essence HTML files. The application also allows you to import plain text files. As Calmly can print, you can export to PDF installing a PDF-generator.
Calmly Desktop can also import and export markdown files.
We are currently working on expanding the import and export options.
