Sheesh, this thread is 9 years old.....oh, I get it. That's only 20 minutes in Amiga years.

Anyway, what's the point in commenting on such an old thread? if they haven't found a solution in 9 years, then they haven't been looking very hard.


also,
ZORRAM.

Print yes but if you use sophisticated packages you can f.e. export it in electronic formats

Sophisticated packages?

I had a look at the Pagestream website. Didn't see any mention of sophisticated packages. Can it export as Epub format?

God's Not Dead

P.S. I still use PageStream 3.1 when I need to. In fact we printed my son's birthday thank you letters using it in July this year!

God's Not Dead


lol. I hadn't heard that song before.

MEGA_RJ_MICAL likes to babel on like Nimrod, using his terminology which is actually Biblical.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nimrod

Calling God dead is admitting he exists and recognizes him as God. Calling him dead sounds dangerous considering all the stories of Godly immortality he may not know the history of like the story of Nimrod and the Tower of Babel with the location now on Google Maps.

https://www.reddit.com/r/Retconned/comments/8f5qox/tower_of_babel_is_now_on_google_maps/

Surely God is no more dead than the Amiga yet people here have enough faith, including Mega_RJ_MICAL, to show up waiting for the resurrection.

Beloved Friends in Amiga,

peddlers of agricultural rims disguising as seasoned white room engineers,
and [insert here whatever BigD does for a living, salad relationship specialist at BurgerMania or whatever]!

First of all. let's celebrate together yet another thread swiftly and surely steered into some dark swampland,
well beyond any possible point of return!

Second! This humble sod would never definitively deny the existence of any supreme being,
mythical creature,
possibility of realities that go beyond our mortal comprehension.
Never!

God might exist, my friends,
and be alive and well too.
But it is quite a certainty that if he does, and if his role is what the bible and other scriptures oh so dear to BigD and his fellows describe,
then he either really suck at his job, or he's one majestic, colossal asshole.

With this being said, let's admire the sheer intelligence exuding from this beautiful specimen,
this long distant relative of Adam and Eve, of Abel and Cain, of Matusalem,
as portrayed in the youtube video above.





/MEGA!

That was a missed opportunity at comedy oh 'Violent' one! BigD is a known brand of peanuts if you wanted to go there! You are what you eat etc.

As to you blasphemy and complaints about threads being derailed, I repeat:

Have you ever owned an Amiga yourself (putting aside for a second you pretend you worked for the Los Gatos Amiga Team)? If so what is YOUR favourite version of PageStream! Why don't YOU stay on topic?

DEEEENNNEEEEBBB!!!!!!

Friend BigD,

you really need to pause for a minute, take a breath,
stare at the horizon, become one with the cosmos,
one with this well-ordered eternity,

and bring into focus one elegant, final concept:



𝓷𝓸 𝓸𝓷𝓮 𝓯𝓾𝓬𝓴𝓲𝓷𝓰 𝓵𝓲𝓴𝓮𝓼 𝔂𝓸𝓾.



Probably not even God.
Sincerely,

/mega

Violent Ken strikes again! Sounds like a song!



And any thoughts or comments regarding you actually USING the Amiga rather than your hypocritical smack talk about forum derailment etc?

@Pagestream

So much vitriol. This is why I don't use Pagestream.

Back in the day when I would print something from the Amiga, Final Writer would be up to the task 90% of the time. Art Expression and a range of bitmap graphics applications for the remaining scenarios.

Today, on the rare occasion when I'm required to print something, I literally roll my eyes.

Don't get me wrong, I'm very grateful to Gutenburg, and still reserve a degree of reverence for the printed word, but it is 21C and digital is the way. As is audio and video as the preferred methods for information consumption.

Alive? Yes.
Well? Debatable.
I say it's in dire need of reinvention.

Anecdotal evidence on the other hand, is alive and well.
