Writer maintenance

Writer will be undergoing required system maintenance on Saturday, March 7th, at 11 AM PST. Click here to see what time that is in your timezone.

The Writer website could be offline for up to 2 hours but will most likely be offline for a much shorter period. The updates are required to protect the security of the Writer service. There has been no breach of security or loss of data. This is a preemptive update to keep your writing safe.

Fortunately, Writer works offline! You can still write while you (or the Writer website) are offline with just a few differences. The main difference is that only documents you saved recently will be available to you offline. When Writer comes back online, your offline writing will be synchronized again with the Writer website as soon as you reconnect. Some other services like the thesaurus and exporting to other formats will also be unavailable during the maintenance period.

I know this may be inconvenient to some of you and I wish I could have provided more notice. Thanks for your understanding. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
