Hi Deron:

The last, at last.
- - - - - - - - - - - -
*** Interface-based Table of Contents/Edit/Generate ***
All of the Generate topics have incomplete sentences. They could be left
that way but it looks as if you planned to complete them later as there
is a space between the last character and the period.

*** Interface-based Table of Contents/Toolbox ***
The image showing and describing the toolbox doesn't show the Table
tool.

*** Lesson 2/Step 7: Positioning the text block/4. Aligning multiple
objects. ***
I like the changes to the aligning exercise, but the last line has the
words "object" & "objects" next to each other. I suggest dropping the
one with the 's'.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Well I guess I've made it through the PgS manual. And I've got to say,
that it is a great document, far superior to the PDF version. I think
that this would make a massive document if produced in printed form. I'm
quite happy to use it in this form.
I still think it's amazing that a program can be written that has such
complexity, a long way from the days when I was writing code, compiling
and burning it on one 2K-word Eprom.

Congratulations and thanks for all the hard work. You make me feel guilty for not giving you a hand.

Although the HTML version has the undoubted benefits of hyperlinks, I still hope that Charlot Cobben of designburo has not lost heart and given up on a paper copy.

I heartily agree!

Many thanks,

Cheerio,

I must have missed this email. Thanks to you and Roy, and everyone else who
contributed! I would hardly consider this project _done_! The trick is does
it provide the kind of reference that people need when they are seeking an
answer.

I still hope to include another tutorial or two. Not to mention bringing
back some of the fundamentals and glossary terms from the 3.0 manual. Just
no time for that now. I'm sure others can, and will, think of more to add
as time goes!

Me too. I'm still ready to buy one.

Thanks. I've finished the sentences. A bit lame, but all three are similar
in function.

Thanks. Also missing lasso tool.

Opps. Thanks!

Funny, I was just talking to my wife today marveling at how I used to
wrangle code into 16k overlays on Apple IIs for a living Smile Now only the
lowest of PageStream import filters would even fit in that space. We have
been discussing changes to some of PageStream Library APIs for things like
32bit Unicode support (PageStream documents work with 32bit already, but we
pass 16 bits back and forth. Who would have ever thought...), and also
increasing file length and positions from 32bits to 64bits (depending on
the OS. Right now Amiga is still 32bit, but it is coming for Windows, and
already here for Linux). I can't see PageStream easily supporting >4gb
documents since it is still using IFF format which the FORM wrapper at the
top is still going to limit us to 32bits. I think file linking is what we
will have to do (placing chapters/pages/objects in files), or move on to
another (perhaps similar) file format. Luckily this problem is not before
us today. I have time to think about it Smile

Thanks for all your help!!
