    No, not supposed to. Yes, there’s an inyan to be machmir.

    So when I open a new thread, I am not just being maykil on myself, but causing others to be maykil by replying. Does that make me a kal u’ mkalkel acheirim?

    Type with a shinuy. Hunt and peck instead of touch typing.

    Typing on a computer is not permanent , whereas typewriter might be different. Printing from a computer might not be a melochoh for chol hamoad just entering a command. The issur of chol hamoad is exertion.

    Typing on a computer followed by printing it out is no different than using a typewriter.

    Joseph, proof? Chal Hamoad a tircha or exertion is assur and must have permanence. Writing on a computer
    display has no permanence. Printing by entering a command involves no tircha and is not a direct malocho happening automatically, whereas typing on a typewriter has permanence and there is tircha involved.

    laskern: Are you saying that using a word processor is like a computer and not like a typewriter?

    laskern,

    Don’t listen to Joseph, he’s making up fake halacha again. Isn’t it interesting that he’s always machmir? Ask your LOR instead and you’ll see that Joseph is wrong as usual.

    See Beer Moshe 7,39 and 93 writing on a disk is automatic. On Chal Moad a pesik reshe is not assur and the writing is a code. Writing on a monitor display has no permanence.

    laskern: You didn’t answer the point about using a word processor. Is it like a computer or like a typewriter, according to your view?

    It’s a computer. See the RMA SA O’CH 545,7 writing must be permanent.

    A word processor automatically prints out the document as soon as you’re done typing the entire document.

    I talk about a software that is used on a computer.

    I’m asking you about a hardware word processor.

    That would be like a typewriter as described by you.
