FYI, There's all kinds of 'projects' on GitHub that attempt to use this as a word processor.
I'm sure there all under diff licenses and the stupid bit, to me, is that they all use the same 'trick'. I had figured this out (even before seeing anyone else's script) and wrote some script of my own that was using keyboard shortcuts to center and align text to the right, make Headings...
Anyways some of those projects (PLEASE DON'T TAKE MY POSTING THEM AS ENDORSEMENTS...just showing some of what's out there):
I modded this slightly to use some native fonts included with ChromeOS Flex:
I posted about 'WYSIWYG' Text editors in my online software post and mentioned this editor, didn't realize that it does, essentially the same thing:
This really makes me laugh 'Awfice'
, scroll down and look for the 'try it' buttons
Please don't do shit like he (the author is doing in his spreadsheet). The 'word processor' is just basically the URL above, he does add keyboard shortcuts to the 'presentation maker', but if you look closely at the 'presentation maker' it's basically using the contenteditable BS over and over again. The code used for the keyboard shortcuts is very similar to what I did.
I was thinking about an office (awfice) too... ran across this in my searchings:
scroll down, select try it. You can save it locally (on drive) it'll work from there...
It's kinda cool though.
