Jarte Plus

Have you looked at Jarte? I started with the free version and then went for the paid version ($20). For me a great way to input text. Minimal distracting stuff at the top and easy to setup just the way you want it. Default output is RTF which can be read by an other decent word processor.

I have MS Word, Libre, Open Office, Scrivner and several other programs but none works for me like Jarte Plus.

Since I do software development I have my own Subversion server and I use TortoiseSVN for access from Windows File Explorer. When I first moved my writing projects under Subversion control I was pleasantly surprised to find that TortoiseSVN will show load differences into LibreOffice (and presumably OpenOffice) as file comparisons. A very neat way to discover what you've changed between versions of a file, and with the commit log it's a neat way to track what you've been doing. ... Just in case you're interested.
