Last month we wrote about how you can update your TypePad blog using desktop clients like Microsoft Office Word 2007 and Windows Live Writer. Yesterday, our friends at Microsoft released a new version of Windows Live Writer that adds some great new features including:
- Support for TypePad Pages -- Now you can create and edit TypePad Pages directly in Windows Live Writer. This is great news for those of you (and us!) who like to work offline while traveling, or anywhere else where Internet access may be hard to come by.
- Inline Spell Check -- Those little red squiggles that tell you that "definitly" isn't a word. (It's d-e-f-i-n-i-t-e-l-y.)
- Table Editing -- Insert and edit tables in your pages and posts. Perfect for when you need to present columns of information.
- Support for Categories, Excerpts and Extended Entries -- Now you can set all of this information directly in Windows Live Writer. Say good-bye to the days of clicking "publish" in Windows Live Writer, then clicking over to TypePad to add that information separately.
You can read more about Windows Live Writer and download it (did we mention that it's free!) on the Windows Live Writer blog.
