What kind of software do writers and editors use to display and make changes to a piece of writing?

For books I write myself, I use Apple Pages. When the manuscript is ready for editing, I export it to Word format. I then take the edited document and do revisions in Word. For books I coauthor with someone else, Google Docs. Again, when it’s ready to go to the editor, I export it to Word. Google Docs is by any reasonable metric an astonishingly mediocre word processor. It’s limited—you could even say “crude”—and lacks any sort of user interface polish. However, for situations where multiple people are working on the same document together, it’s amazing. Nothing else I’ve used handles multiple authors as seamlessly or gracefully.

Write on PDF: All You Need to Know

And even in that context, many people still prefer Google Docs. Google Docs’s biggest advantage to Microsoft Office and other similar word processor programs is Google Docs’s online file sync. The advantage here is that you can edit and then import into other devices (e.g., iOS and Android) and never worry about losing your work. Most people still don’t use the web for anything save their email. But it’s important that we can continue to use a variety of applications as we move through our lives.
