Ragtime Solo - Desktop Publishing Software

Notes from Clif

Ragtime is a truely worthy alternative to MSWord and Excel. It weighs in at only 49mb installed but packs quite a punch. When I had MS office software loaded it lagged and chugged. This program just zips. It does everything a desktop publishing program needs to do, all inside one interface. Ragtime Solo can import and export Word 97 and can also export to html.

Up to now, you haven't used layout programs, because you couldn't afford to do without spreadsheet calculations or text processing. Now you can give your work that final polish. With Ragtime, you have a single convenient layout environment in which you can process text, tables, drawings, pictures and graphs. The intuitive user interface simplifies your quick access to all of Ragtime's functions.
