Greetings,

I've been assigned to search for the best softwares and plug-ins in "Text
editing and Writing" and "graphs and diagrams". I'd be grateful for any
piece of advice or suggestion or experience.

Best,
Majid.

Brooke,
thanks for the words, as you said Office pack(Word + Excel) would be typical
in text editing and graphs. but I am searching for others. actually, I am
about to know which text editing or graph softwares would have what
capabilities? and for example which softwares offer extra unique features? I
know its a bit holistic view and even evaluation of choosing one as the best
would be tricky and difficult. but in the end best softwares categorized in
different capabilities would be used in the process of Design. e.g. in some
stage of this process, some will be used in Presentation, some will be used
in Stylizing texts, some in "Copy & Paste"-ing different text into different
softwares - graphic/modeling ones, ...
is there any site/reference evaluating softwares based on
some specified criteria?

Majid.
