I never was able to get PageSream5 PPC to work on my µA1. But I just upgraded to a SAM460 and was overjoyed to discover that PageStream5 now works! It seems very stable, and I have been able to do almost everything that I've tried so far, except the spell checker. Has anyone else been able to get the spell checker to work with PageStream5?

This good news arrived a few minutes after delivery of my Sam460
motherboard. I wonder if "PageStream5 PPC" is the same as the PageStream
5.0.5.8 that I have been using with limited success on my AmigaOne in
OS4.1u2, or do I buy another version?

I was talking about the native, PPC version (not the 68k one); but it is possible that the 68k one might also work better with the SAM460 (through emulation).
Have you had any success with it yet?

I'm putting my 460 together real slow. The board is still in its wrapper,
and I'll get a case this weekend.

As I mentioned, I had some success with PgS 5.0.5.8. Previously I had really
good success with another 5.0.n.n,
but I don't remember for sure whether it was PPC or 68K. It quit working
with OS4 upgrade 2. It wouldn't do everything it was supposed to, such as
load jpegs (5.0.5.8 does), but it did everything I needed to.

In any event, I do have two PPS versions (5.0.3.3 and Pro5.0.3.3) kicking
around that won't work on my A1, and I'm looking forward to trying them on
the SAM460 as soon as I get it running, probably a week or a month from
now.

It was so long since I had read this that when I finally tried
PageStream5Pro on my SAM460ex today and was utterly astonished that all
kinds of things work that I didn't remember to try the spell checker. Maybe
tomorrow.

I wonder if it's safe to copy UserPrefs over.

I forgot to update my answer to this. I get some success with the spell
checker, but where I would expect it to look at the document and check all
the words, or else check the spelling of a word selected in the document, I
have found it necessary to type a word into the string requester. Then it
will give me an answer.
