Windows Live Writer, http://get.live.com/writer/overview has more and better features than Blogdesk for writing off line.
More importantly for WordPress bloggers, it allows an easy upload of posts using different fonts and sizes than that puny, dull black script they give us as a default.
You’ve probably found out that you cannot always cut and paste from Microsoft Word.
It simply doesn’t work right.
I have yet to try Open Office, but I plan to stick with Live Writer.
Try it, especially if you: 1.Write off line, 2. Use WordPress, and 3. Like to experiment with fonts and photos.
