I'm a bit of a fan of distraction free word processors - currently i prefer q10, but there's a small issue for me - I tend to use a two screen setup for serious writing, either cause i have information in note form on a second word processor/notepad type programme, or for quick lookups of information on the internet.

I need to have the task bar accessible for these things, but for that, i'd need to have a word processor on a second screen, and have the random other stuff i do on the primary.

So, are there any full screen, customisable, distraction free word processors which i can switch/move across screens?

Notepad is not an option. I need customisable backgrounds and forgrounds, and ideally spellcheck.

So far, I found these work with dual screens. I have both installed but I always use Writemonkey because it comes with Markdown support:

For Writemonkey, pressing Esc takes it out of full-screen mode. Just move the window around to the other screen then press Esc again. Pressing F7 activates spell-check

+1 for WriteMonkey. I highly recommend. –  jcrawfordor Jun 8 '11 at 7:27
    
I just wish Writemonkey has the same horizontal cursor that Ommwriter has. For zen purposes and whatnot. –  Ellesa Jun 8 '11 at 7:29
    
writemonkey works perfectly for my needs. Sorry about the delay, but i was a little busy and couldn't check if it worked as i needed it to. –  Journeyman Geek Jun 10 '11 at 3:34
