PageMaker's not alone

Send Article to a Friend

PageMaker's not alone -- Mark H. Anbinder writes to clarify his comments about PageMaker's capability of dragging objects between document windows in TidBITS #188. "Thanks to everyone who's commented that XPress has offered this feature for some time. As a long-time XPress user myself, I am aware of this but was attempting to focus on the fact that Aldus, in giving PageMaker the capability to handle multiple documents, had done it right. I never intended to suggest that no one else had done so, just that much of the rest of the market has not."
