RagTime 6.5 update
RagTime has announced an update to its business publishing software, RagTime 6.5. More than 150 new functions have been added, mainly for use with spreadsheets and text paragraphs. The layout functionality has also been enhanced, and offers the ability to run text along any kind of curve. The software is now claimed to operate up to six times faster on Intel-based Macs, with the most significant gains observed when opening complex documents, browsing lengthy text or updating graphs. Printing and PDF output has been optimized as well, especially when using Mac OS 10.5.
RagTime combines word processing, spreadsheet and page layout tools into a single package. Other features include color separations, unlimited master pages, footnote management and automatic generation of table of contents and indices. The professional version comes with components such as additional color profiles.
A preview of RagTime 6.5 is now available as a free download for registered owners of RagTime 6.
