Software Description

KWord is a Free LGPL-licensed word processor, part of the KOffice suite. The text-layout scheme in KWord is based on frames, making it similar to FrameMaker by Adobe. These can be placed anywhere on the page, and can incorporate text, graphics and embedded objects. Each new page is a new frame, but the text is able to flow through KWord's ability to link frames together. The use of frames means that complex graphical layouts can be achieved relatively easily in KWord.
