Most such programs now have helpful instruments (tools) to make good texts. Some of the important instruments have a spelling & grammar checker, word count (this also counts letters and lines). Moreover, with such programs one can make attractive documents, add pictures into documents, make web pages, graphs etc. Also, they show synonyms (similar words) of words and some can read out the text. Many word processors, similar to many new programs, have configurable printing facilities.
