In reply to stewy:

Yes I have noticed the great improvements in the newer EasiWriter updates.

I also did consider those great ideas you mentioned too, but I fear that it will be very fiddly in the nature of the embedded !Draw graphics of borders and ruled lines (to create an "exercise book" style of page for school children) under the text frames on every single page.

The text frame was very fiddly in lining up the large sized typed text over the ruled lines of !Draw graphics.

It was the way my friend wanted the pages to look and so was the way that I first set it up some 7 or so years ago.

You can see part of the Publisher page layout that I mean in my User Gallery on page 12 here...


This sample does not show the borders around the page.

The borders were 12 different designs taken from an Acorn BitFolio7 (can't remember the name from memory, the clip art book's at work), I used one border design for each 10 pages.

Anyway, do you know if EasiWriter can handle big 70 pages of text and graphics like Publisher?

The latest EasiWriter I assume should?

Thanks, Steve
