Send Article to a Friend

BeLight Software’s desktop publishing software Swift Publisher has been updated to version 2.3.3. Starting with this version, Swift Publisher can automatically check for (and download) new updates automatically. Several bug fixes are also included in the release: object dimensions are more accurate when viewing pages at the 100-percent zoom level, page order when printing in Imposition mode is fixed, and several bugs with tool buttons under Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard are also corrected. If you already own version 2 of the software, you can download a much smaller update (instead of the full application installer) from BeLight. ($44.95 Standard Edition/$54.95 Retail Edition, free update, 40.4 MB full download, 8.3 MB update download)
