I have never wanted to do that so I just did.  I couldn't let this room die, it means so much to the kids in the orphanarium.

There was a brief period during which lots of people had computers, but Al Gore had not yet invented the Internet.  During this in-between moment in history, people composed newsletters and such on their own computers, then printed them onto slices of dead tree and mailed them out to people, who allegedly read them.   This was called "Desk Top Publishing" and apparently we had a room to talk about it at some point.  Since it is a directory room, it was immune to THE DREADED AUTO-PURGER (which is not nearly as aggressive as he used to be).

So let's talk about DTP... I'm using InDesign these days, but is anyone still hanging on to Quark?

It could be worse. You could be using Ventura or PageMaker.

I liked PageMaker!  It was great ... until Adobe bought the product and subsequently drove it into the ground.

But nothing beat The Print Shop!  (Which, apparently, is still around.  Weird.)

Ah, that is what I thought, but was afraid to ask.  Desk top publishing.  I know something about it, but could never afford it (Sinclair / Timex / Apple I - et all).  Fired in to programming before all that took off.  I do know a teacher that still longs for a free upgrade to Quark for himself and his collaborator (both Mac users), so if anybody has any ideas, feel free to fling forth.

I don't think he would do Scribus, but I did not put that forth yet.  Older than me, so might not like the learning curve involved.
