[SIGCIS-Members] identifying a word processor

I'm trying to suss out which word processor might have been set to
deliver up the warning message, "The paragraph is going to be too
long; you should press the Return button."

It would have been on a Mac, c. 1990.

I've been unable to reproduce this with ClarisWorks or MS Word 4,5, or 5.1.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Matt
