Amigaworld.net News   Amigaworld.net News : Martial Arts Kanji Dictionary
   posted by Swoop on 20-Aug-2023 12:43:35 (768 reads)
Hi guys

I have had the above dictionary published on Amazon, yesterday.

It was produced on an Amiga5000, using Pagestream 4.1.5.6.

I started compiling my notes on an A1200 back in 1988, but serious work on it started in 1998.

539 pages, of pure work. Scanning the Kanji, using BME to remove stroke counts and then tracing them to a dr2d file. Which I could scale to whatever size I needed.
The chapter system within Pagestream is brilliant. One of the problems is DSI errors when using #textpage number, to cross reference everything.
I then had to print to a postscript file, convert to a pdf using AmiGS.
Then transfer to my iMac to upload to Amazon.

Essentially, it is the culmination of 25 years work.

Your book seems to be really interesting (I cannot order from France).

Huge work but nice work (and only using Amiga!)
