NCWorks in use

Document centred

NCWorks is 'document-centric'. This means that you do not need to know what program to use in order to create a certain piece of work. You just pick the document type from a configurable list (the document types offered can be altered for a particular curriculum area, e.g. English). You can switch between your open documents at any time with a keypress or a click on an icon. Similarly, you can go into RISCOS at any time with a keypress or a click on an icon.

Data interchange

All the NCWorks applications share a global clipboard making data transfer extremely easy. When in RISCOS, you can save out the contents of the clipboard in a variety of different formats.


All the NCWorks applications are designed to have a consistent look and feel. The button bars are laid out in the same way. Menus have similar structures.

Ease of use

Context sensitive help is displayed in all applications. As the mouse is moved, relevant help is continually displayed. If more detailed help and assistance is required an on-line manual can be retrieved at any time with a keypress or click on an icon.
