Before you begin
O
This manual is for
both the Amiga and
Atari versions of Page-
Stream2.2. All pictures are
from the Amiga version.
The terms are Atari or
other industry standard
terms instead of the unique
Amiga ones. Specifically,
dialog box is used instead
of requester; button and
text field are used instead
of gadget; and fi Ie selector
is used instead of file
requester.
O
Your registration
number can be
found on your half of the
registration card.

Installation and Startup 3
Installing PageStream 2.2 for Atari
4 PageStream2 User Manual
To install PageStream 2.2 on an Atari computer's hard drive:
1. Turn on your Atari computer.
Wait for the Desktop to appear.
2. Insert the PageStream program disk into drive A.
Double click on the disk A icon.
3. Copy the files.
Create a folder on your hard drive called PGSTREAM. Copy all of the files
from the floppy disk to it, except for the PGS2.INF file. Repeat for the
PGSFONTS disk.
Insert the CGFONTS I disk in a drive and copy all of its files to the FONTS
folder, which should already exist in the PGSTREAM folder. Repeat for the
CGFONTS2 disk.
4. Start PageStream.
When install ation is complete, you can start PageStream by double clicking
on the PGS2.PRG icon in the PGSTREAM directory.
To use PageStream 2.2 on an Atari computer's floppy drives:
1. Turn on your Atari computer.
When the Desktop appears, put your worki ng copies of the PageStream
program disk in drive A and the PGSFONTS disk in drive B.
2. Start PageStream.
Double click on the disk A icon and then double click on the PGS2. PRG pro-
gram icon to start PageStream. You will be prompted to switch di sks as
required.
Memory Notes
PageStream can be run from ST RAM or TT RAM, but not both. For example, if
your system has 4MB of ST RAM and 8MB of TT RAM, you can choose to run it in
4MB of ST RAM or 8MB of TT RAM. The entire 12 MB of RAM will not be available
to you because the memory is not continuous.
The SLM60S and 804 printers require that you use ST RAM in order to print to
them. SLM pri nters also require 4MB of ST RAM to print a page. You must have
the Diablo emulator loaded and use the DlAB804.PRT driver. (You can al so try
the SLM804.PRT driver, but this will not work with all SLM printers.)
Startup options (Amiga only)
Tool type Name Options
TOOLBOX leftl right
PageStream for Amiga can be run from the Workbench or command line shell.
If you run it from the Workbench, you can change its tooltypes to set startup
options, and if you start if from a shell you can use arguments for options. To
set a tool type, select the PageStream2 program icon and then choose the
Workbench's Information (AmigaDOS 2.0 or greater) or Info (AmigaDOS 1.3)
command. The Information dialog box will open. Select the tool type to change,
or click on Add to create a new one. The available tooltypes are:
Description Example
choose whether the toolbox should be on the left or right TOOLBOX=left
SCREEN customl workbench choose the Workbench or a custom screen SCREEN=custom
INTERLACE yesl no choose whether a custom screen should be interlaced INTERLACE=yes
COLORS 21 41 81 161 321 641 1281 256 choose the number of colors for a custom screen COLORS=16
O
Icons for saved
documents will be
created if PageStream is
started from the Work-
bench icon. They will not
be created if PageStream
is started from a shell.
O
High resolution
custom screens
provide twice as many
pixels as other screens, so
you should set Interlaced
to Yes if it is usable with
your monitor.
Argument Name Options
TOOLBOX
The INTERLACE and COLORS tool type can only be used if the SCREEN is set to
CUSTOM. Use the Workbench screen when you want PageStream to open on top
of your Workbench icons and programs. Use a custom screen when you want
PageStream to open on an uncluttered screen or when you want to control the
screen type. (The latter uses more memory.) If you want a high resolution
custom screen, set the INTERLACE tool type to YES (even if you have an AGA
computer). This may not be suitable for your monitor. If it is not, set it to NO.
Pre-AGA computers (ex: A500, A600, A2000 ... ) are limited to a maximum of
sixteen screen colors. AGA computers (ex: A1200, A4000) can use up to 256
screen colors. The more colors you use, the slower PageStream's display will
update, but the better color documents will look. PageStream2 always displays
bitmapped pictures in black and white, so the only advantage to more colors is
for text and drawings. Four colors is the best mode for most users.
If you prefer to use a command line shell, the arguments are:
Description Example
set the toolbox to the left (right is the default) -I
SCREEN w choose the Workbench (custom screen is the default) -w
INTERLACE n set non-interlaced mode (interlaced is the default) -n
COLORS 21 41 81 161 321 641 1281 256 set the number of colors (4 is the default) -16

It is absolutely
essential that the
PSFonts (Amiga) or
Fonts (Atari) directory be
in the left scroll ing list of
the Font Manager. Even
if you do not have any
fonts in this directory, it
must be added. It con-
tains fi les required for
fonts to work.
PageStream 2.2 comes with a number of fonts, and you can add more fonts as
long as they are compatible with PageStream 2.2. The types of fonts you may
come across are:
Description Supported by Page Stream 2.2
standard AmigaDOS font format (used by 2.04 and higher) Yes
original PageStream font format Yes
standard desktop publishing font format Yes
old font format; rare now No
standard Windows and Macintosh font format No
these programs use a rare format called Nimbus Q No
To use additional PostScript type 1 fonts, you must have a PFB and an AFM file
for each font. To use additional Soft-Logik DMF fonts, you must have a DMF
and a FM file for each font. (You can also use optional bitmapped screen fonts
for each. These will usually have file extensions with numbers.)
To add more fonts to PageStream:
1. Copy the fonts to any directory on your hard drive or disks.
2. Choose the Global/Path Settings command.
The Set Paths dialog box will open.
3. Click on the Font Manager or Manager button.
The Font Manager dialog box wi ll open.
4. Add or update the font path.
If you have not previously added this font directory to the Font Manager,
click on the Add button. A file selector wi ll open. Use it to open the direc-
tory containing the fonts, so that the font files are listed in the file selector.
DO NOT SELECT A FILE! THE FILE TEXT FIELD MUST BE BLANK! Click on Ok.
If you have previously added this font directory to the Font Manager, select
the directory name from the left scrolling list and then click on the Update
button.
5. Click on the Save Default or Default button.
This will ensure your new fonts are avai lable every time you start
PageStream.

This driver renders the page to an IFF ILBM picture.
Many more drivers than are listed here will be present in your Printers direc-
tory. The drivers listed here are the most common, but drivers for other printers
do exist.
Almost all printers are compatible with one of the provided drivers. A few
newer printers, such as the Fargo Primera, must be used with the Preference
driver (if you have an Amiga) because a custom driver does not exist. Other
newer printers, such as the Epson Stylus Color, can be used at a lower resolu-
tion with a custom driver, but require a Preference driver to be used at full
resolution. Soft-Logik Publishing provides a wide assortment of custom printer
drivers with PageStream 2.2, but does not provide AmigaDos Preference
drivers.
If you have a printer which is capable of printing in both PostScript and HP PCL
modes, you should choose the PostScript driver for faster printing.
If you are printing in color to a PostScript printer, or rendering a color IFF ILBM
file, you must type the word "color" without the quotes into the Special text
field in the Set Printer dialog box. Do not leave this in the field for black and
white printing.
Installation and Startup 9
Screen colors
10 PageStream2 User Manual
PageStream2 can be used in 2 to 256 colors, depending on your computer
model. If you have an Amiga computer, refer to page 5 for startup options. If
you have an Atari computer, the number of colors available will depend on
your selected screen mode. (Refer to your TOS manual for more information.)
PageStream allows you to set the colors for each of the available screen colors
in color modes from 2 to 16 colors. In color modes greater than 16 colors,
PageStream uses a fixed palette (Amiga) or your system palette (Atari), so you
cannot change the screen colors.
Changing screen colors in 2 to 16 color modes
Choose the Global/Change Screen Colors command to open the Screen Color
dialog box. Click on one of the screen color swatches and then adjust its red,
green and blue sliders to set its color. When you are done, click on Save
Default to make your changes permanent.
IMPORTANT: While you can change black and white to other colors, they
MUST ALWAYS be set to a gray level. (i.e., their RGB sliders must always be set
to equal positions.) If they are not set to a gray level, your document pages will
be black and you will not be able to use PageStream!
ATARI NOTE: The Atari version cannot save screen color defaults. If you wish
to use a different palette of screen colors, you must set it each time you use the
program. Note that screen colors are not reset when you exit the program.

The PageStream screen
When you create a document, PageStream opens a document window contain-
ing an empty page. The window will have a vertical and horizontal scroll bar to
change the part of the page shown in the window. You can change the magnifi-
cation of the page with the various View menu commands. The toolbox will be
displayed beside the document window.
Pages and master pages
PageStream2 documents can have up to 255 pages. While only one page may
be edited at once, you can view any page you wish. Pages can be inserted,
deleted or moved to reorder a document.
In addition to regular pages, each document has a master page which is used
for objects common to each page. A master page holds information which will
be repeated on all pages of a document. Double-sided documents have separate
left and right master pages. Master page objects are visible when you are view-
ing a normal page, but they cannot be edited unless you view the actual master
page. You can tum off the display of master page objects for any page with the
Layout/Show Master Page command.
Changing pages
You can change the page displayed in the document window with the toolbox.
The Previous Page and Next Page tools are used to flip normal pages. The Go
to Page tool allows you to enter the number of a page to edit. The Left and
Right Master Page tools will display the appropriate master page. If the docu-
ment is single sided, both tools will display the single master page.
Page numbering
PageStream allows you to number your pages automatically and to specify the
way in which pages are numbered. Pages are numbered consecutively, but you
can change the starting page number.
To set the starting page number: Choose Layout/Set Starting Page Number.
To insert a page number: Place the insertion point with the Text tool and then
choose Layout/ Insert Page Number.

Changing view magnifications
PageStream allows you to enlarge or reduce the magnification of the document
in its window. You may want to zoom in to make small changes, or zoom out
to see your page layout as a whole. Intermediate magnification levels are useful
for editing body text.
There are several ways to change view magnifications in PageStream:
Choose preset view magnification levels from the View menu.
Use the Magnify tool to zoom in or out. Click on the page with the Magnify
tool to increase the magnification; hold down a Shift key and click to reduce
the magnification.
Choose the View/Custom Scale command or the Custom Scale tool to
specify an exact view magnification.
Use the ViewNariable Zoom command to enlarge a specific area.
Rulers, grid and guides
PageStream has several features to help you layout your pages. The View/
Show Rulers command displays rulers at the top and left of the document
window in the default measurement system. You can change the measurement
system with the Prefs/Measuring System command. The View/ Show Grid
command displays the non-printing drawing grid, which is set with the Layout!
Set Grid command. If the Layout! Snap-to-Grid command is selected, the top
left corner of objects drawn, resized or moved will be snapped to the grid.
Guides are non-printing lines that help you align multiple objects. The View/
Show Guides command displays them. You can create guides by clicking on a
ruler at the desired position, and delete them by clicking on the same position.
If the Layout! Snap-to-Guides command is selected, the top left corner of
objects drawn, resized or moved will be snapped to the guides.
Screen redraws
PageStream will constantly attempt to maintain a clean screen display that
accurately represents your document. However, it is possible for an incorrect
redraw to occur after complex editing. (This is especially true when editing text
on a non-white background.) If this situation should occur, a complete screen
redraw can be manually forced by pressing the Esc key and then the "U" key,
or by clicking on one of the scroll bars.
------------------------------------------------------------
Toolbox
The toolbox allows you to change program modes and to draw and manipulate
objects. The toolbox has a drag bar so it can be moved anywhere on the screen.

Using objects
16 PageStream2 User Manual
A page is made up of objects. An object may be a picture, a drawing or a text
column; everything on a page is an object. The manner in which objects are
placed on a page is referred to as the layout.
There are four types of objects that you can place on a page in PageStream2:
text objects (text columns and frameless text objects)
bitmapped pictures
shapes and paths
EPS illustrations
Text objects are the most common type of object placed on a page. There are
two types of text objects: text column frames andframeless text objects. A text
column frame is a container in which text may be entered, and is often referred
to as simply a text frame or text column. Frameless text objects are used for
titles, headers, footers and other small blocks of type. They lack defined right
and bottom margins, so they do not have a fixed frame to hold text.
Text columns are normally used for the body text of a document and frameless
text objects are used for small blocks of text. Text frames can be linked so that
text will flow between them; frameless text objects cannot be linked.
Graphics are used to help layout a page and to illustrate your text. Bitmapped
pictures must be created with another program such as DeluxePaint, Brilliance
or Degas and then imported into PageStream. Shapes and paths can be created
with PageStream's built-in drawing tools, or imported from drawings created
with program such as EasyDraw or ProDraw. EPS illustrations are non-editable
graphics which can be printed only with PostScript printers.
Click and then move the mouse.
D
Click to end the shape.
Click to start a path.
Click to draw line segments.
Drag to shape curve segments.
Drawing shapes and paths
You can use PageStream's drawing tools to create simple shapes, such as lines
and boxes, or complex paths. You can change the color, fill style and line style
of shapes and paths after drawing them.
How to draw shapes
1. Select a shape tool from the toolbox.
Choose the Line, Box, Rounded Box, Ellipse or Arc tool. The mouse
pointer will change to a drawing crosshair.
2. Click to start the shape.
Position the mouse crosshair over the start point of the shape. Click the left
mouse button and then move the mouse in any direction to draw the shape.
3. Click to end the shape.
The shape will be created after you click the mouse button again.
How to draw paths
1. Select the Pen tool from the toolbox.
The mouse pointer will change to a drawing cross hair.
2. Start the path.
Position the mouse crosshair over the start point of the path. Click the left
mouse button to start the first line or curve.
3. Draw lines.
Move the mouse and then click the button again. The line segment will be
ended and the next segment will be started. Continue as required.
4. Draw curves.
Move the mouse to the end of the curve. Drag the mouse while holding
down the left mouse button to shape a curve. Release the button to end the
curve and to start the next line or curve. Continue as required.
5. End the path.
Click the left mouse button a second time over the last point to end the path.
To close a path, click twice when the mouse pointer is over the start point.

than one option is listed in the "As" scrolling li st, select how to import the
graphic. Click on Ok.
4. Place the graphic.
The mouse pointer will change to a picture frame comer. The picture frame
represents the top left comer of the graphic. If you want to place the graphic
at its actual size, click the left mouse button. To place it at another size,
press and hold the left mouse button; drag the mouse down and to the right
to define the size of the graphic and then release the mouse button. You can
hold down a Shift key while doing this to constrain it to its original aspect
ratio.
You can now move or scale the graphic as required.
Note that imported pictures can only be displayed in black and white in this
version of PageStream, and View/Show Pictures must be toggled on to see
them.
EPS files will be imported as uneditable EPS objects if imported with one of the
EPS modules. EPS objects can be printed only to PostScript printers, and can be
shown as boxes only unless they have an accompaning bitmap picture preview.
If the EPS file is stored in Adobe Illustrator 88/1.1 EPS or Art Expression EPS
format, it can be imported as an editable drawing that can be printed to any
type of printer.
O
If the object is
unfilled, you must
click on the path (outline)
of the object to select it.
If the object is filled, you
can click anywhere inside
the object.
Selecting objects
You can use the Object tool to select objects so that you can move, resize or
otherwise manipulate them. You can select one object and change it alone, or
you can select multiple objects and change them simultaneously.
Objects are placed on the page in a stack. The first object drawn will be at the
bottom of the stack. Subsequent objects will be on top of it in the order they are
drawn, unless you change the stack order. When you click on a stack of objects,
only the top one will be selected.

Moving and resizing objects
You can use the Object tool to move and resize objects. If snap-to-grid is off,
you can move and resize an object to any position or size. If snap-to-grid is on,
you can move and resize objects only in increments of the drawing grid.
How to move objects

2. Position the mouse pointer.
Position the pointer over a size handle. Hold down the left mouse button
and drag the object to a new size. Release the button to set the new size.
Working with groups
PageStream can combine objects into groups to freeze their relative positions
and to simplify manipulating them. A group of objects can be selected, moved
and scaled as one object. The appearance of the individual objects is
unchanged when they are grouped.
To create a group: Select the objects and choose the Object/Group command.
To add objects to an existing group: Select the group and the additional objects.
Choose the Object/Group command. The new group will be made up of the
original group and the additional objects. You could also ungroup the original
group and then group its objects with the new objects.
To edit individual objects from a group, you must first select the group and
then ungroup it to reduce it to its component objects.
To dissolve a group: Select the group and choose the Object/Ungroup command.
Groups are un grouped in the opposite order they were grouped; subgroups in a
group are not ungrouped when the parent group is ungrouped.
O
If any object in a
group is locked.
then the group will be
locked. If you unlock a
group with a locked
object. the group will be
unlocked. but the subob-
ject will still be locked if
the group is later
ungrouped.
Editing objects
The Object/Edit Coordinates command allows you to set the coordinates of
objects with great precision. It opens a dialog box with the coordinates
applicable to the selected object. You can edit the coordinates for individual
unlocked objects, but not for multiple objects simultaneously.
Locking obiects
When you do not want to accidentally move or change an object, you can lock
it. Locked objects cannot be edited in any manner in PageStream. If you
attempt to move or modify a locked object, a dialog box will open to alert you
that the object is locked.
To lock an object: Select the object(s) and choose the ObjectILock command.
To unlock an object: Select the object(s) and choose the ObjectlUnlock
command.
Reshaping obiects
The Reshape tool is used to edit path points. It is identical to the Object tool for
all object types except paths. When a path is selected, point handles will be
shown at each point and curve handles at each curve point, rather than size han-
dles around the path's bounding box.

22 PageStream2 User Manual
Copying and pasting objects
Once object(s) are selected for editing in Page Stream, you can cut or copy them
to move them elsewhere. Choose the Edit/Copy command to copy the selected
object(s) to the clipboard without modifying the original objects. Choose the
Edit/Cut command to copy them to the clipboard and to remove the original
objects from the document.
To paste copied objects back into a document, choose the Edit/Paste command.
The mouse pointer will change to a picture frame corner. If you want to place
the objects at their actual size, click the left mouse button. To place them at
another size, press and hold the left mouse button; drag the mouse to define the
size of the objects. You can hold down a Shift key while doing this to constrain
them to their original aspect ratio.
Note that PageStream uses its own internal clipboard and not the system
clipboard.
Text wrap
You can wrap text around objects to prevent the text from overwriting the
graphic. PageStream offers you a choice of methods for wrapping text around
objects.
To wrap text around an object: Select the object with the Object tool and then
choose the ObjectlText Wrap command. Select the icon representing how the
text should wrap around the object, and enter the desired horizontal and vertical
offsets of the text from the object.
PageStream will wrap text around the shape of objects, but because bitmapped
pictures are rectangular, text cannot be wrapped around the subject of a picture,
even if it is on a white background. To wrap text around a picture's subject,
draw a path around it, set the line style to none, and wrap the text around it
instead of the picture.
Setting object attributes
PageStream allows you to apply attributes to objects to change the way they
appear on screen and on paper. Attributes can be applied to single objects and
to multiple selected objects.
The attributes which you can apply to objects are:
Line style, line weight, line ends, dash pattern and color.
Fill style and color.
To change an attribute for existing objects: Select the objects to change with
the Object tool. Choose Object/Line Style to set a line attribute, or Object/Fill
Style to set a fill attribute.
To change an attribute for future objects: Choose the object tool and deselect
all objects by clicking in a blank area of the document. Choose Object/Line
Style to set a line attribute, or Object/Fill Style to set a fill attribute.
PageStream will display objects in color on screen as best it can, given the
number of available screen colors.

24 PageStream2 User Manual
You can type text directly into PageStream or you can import it from another
source such as a word processor or text editor. PageStream can import the text
from a word processor file and retain its text attributes. Once text is in Page-
Stream, regardless of how it is entered, you can modify it with PageStream's
range of attribute and formatting options.
When you use the Text tool, you can edit text in a text column frame and
change its attributes. When you use the Object tool, you can manipulate the
text frames as objects.
Creating a text column frame
Most text is entered into text column frames. Text columns can be created auto-
matically with the Create Columns command, or drawn with the Column tool.
How to create columns automatically
1. Select the Layout/Create Columns command.
The Create Columns dialog box will open.
2. Choose the column options.
Choose the number of columns to create and the gutter space between them.
You can also set their margins, the pages on which to create them, and
whether or not to link the columns from page to page.
l . Click on Ok.
This will close the dialog box and create the text column frames .
How to draw a text column frame
1. Select the Column tool from the toolbox.
The mouse pointer will change to a drawing crosshair.
2. Click to start the frame.

Click the left mouse button and then move the mouse in any direction to
draw the frame.
l. Click to end the column.
The text column frame will be created after you click the mouse button
again.
Text flows from the bottom of
one text frame to the top of the
next in a linked series.
EE
If there is too much text to

a text overset indicator will
be displayed at the bottom
left corner of the frame.
O
The View/Show
Column Links
command di spl ays a bar
at the top of each text
frame. The center number
in the bar is the number
of the current frame. The
left number is that of the
previous frame in the
series, and the right num-
ber is that of the next
frame.
Linking text column frames
When you type or import text into PageStream, it is part of an article, The text
column frame into which you enter text is the container which holds a text ar-
ticle, Articles can flow from page to page because text frames can be linked
together.
You can place more than one article on a page, For example, a newspaper
generally has half a dozen articles on the front page which are continued on
inside pages, Each article is entered into a linked series of text frames where
the first frame is on the front page and the other frames are on the inside pages,
If there are other text items accompanying an article, such as a caption, you
should create separate articles for them in independent text objects,
When text column frames are linked together, text will flow from the first to
the last. If you add text into a frame, text will move from the bottom of it to the
top of the next frame, If you delete text from a frame, text from the next frame
will move up to the bottom of that frame,
How to link text column frames
1. Begin text linking,
Choose the LayoutlLink Columns command, The mouse pointer will
change to an empty rectangle,
2. Select the text column frame to link from.
Click on the text frame from which to flow text. The mouse pointer will

Creating a frame less text object
PageStream provides an alternate method to place text on the page. Frameless
text objects are intended for short blocks of text such as titles, captions, headers
and footers. Unlike text frames, they do not have defined bottom or right
margins.
To create a frameless text object, you si mply click on a blank area of the page
with the Text tool and begin typing. You must press the Return key at the end
of each line as on a typewriter in order to begin a new line. Because there is no
right margin, PageStream cannot wordwrap the text for you.
The lack of right and bottom margins, and the fact that frameless text objects
cannot be linked together, are the key differences between frameless text
objects and text column frames. It is important to note that when you resize a
text column frame, the text in it reflows without changing the type size. When
you resize a frame less text object, the text in it resizes to match the object's
new size.
Typing text
After you have created a text object (text frame or frameless text object), you
can enter text in it by typing directly into it or by importing a text file created
by another program. You must select the Text tool before you can enter new
text or edit existing text. When the Text tool is selected, the mouse pointer will
change to the text cursor shape.
You must position the text insertion point before you can enter text. The inser-
tion point is a vertical line that indicates where the new text wi ll appear. As
you type each character, the insertion point will move to the right to make
room for the character.
How to type text
1. Choose the Text tool.
Choose the Text tool and place the insertion point in a text object to specify
where you want to type text.
2. Type text.
As you type, the characters will appear. If you cannot see the characters
well, it may be because the window is set to a low view magnification level.
If your text reaches the right margin of your text frame as you type with the
Text tool selected, it will wrap down to the next line automatically; you do not
need to press Return to end a line as you would on a typewriter. Use the Return
key only when you want to end a paragraph.
If you are entering text into a frame less text object, you must press Return at
the end of each line because there is no right margin.
Moving the insertion point
To move the insertion point with the mouse cursor, move the mouse so that the
mouse cursor is between the characters where you want to position the inser-
tion point. Click the mouse to place the insertion point at the mouse position.
To move one character left or right, press the left or right arrow key. To move
up or down one line, press the up or down arrow key. You can hold down
arrow keys to move the insertion point repeatedly. You can also use the left and
right arrow keys in conjunction with the Ctrl key to move the cursor to the start
or end of the line.
Correcting mistakes
You can erase characters anywhere in your text by positioning the insertion
point in it and pressing the Backspace or Del keys. The Backspace key deletes
the character to the left of the insertion point, and the Del key deletes the char-
acter to the right of the insertion point. If the insertion point is at the beginning
of a paragraph, pressing Backspace will erase the end of paragraph of the pre-
vious paragraph, joining the two paragraphs together. Similarly, if the insertion
point is at the end of a paragraph, pressing Del will erase the end of paragraph,
joining the two together.
If you backspace, and the remaining text before the insertion point should fit on
the previous line, this version of PageStream will not automatically move the
text to the previous line. The easiest way to force the text to be reformatted is
to select the paragraph and choose the TextlBatch Kern command. This will
ensure the text is properly kerned, as well as forcing it to be reformatted.

Typing special characters
PageStream allows you to enter many special characters that are not shown on
the keyboard. If you have an Amiga computer, the KeyShow program in your
Sys:Tools directory shows you how to type some of these special characters.
Run KeyShow and select the Alt key or the Alt and Shift keys to see which
characters are available using standard Amiga keystrokes.
PageStream offers additional ways to enter special characters. Each character
has a character identification number, and some of the common ones also have
mnemonic sequences. To enter a character by its character identification num-
ber, simply press Ctrl-D and then type the character number. To enter a charac-
ter by its mnemonic sequence, press Ctrl-C and then type the mnemonic. Refer
to Appendix A for a list of character identification numbers and mnemonics.
Note that Compugraphic fonts such as Times and Triumvirate generally have
more characters than can be printed to a PostScript printer. The standard key-
board and DTP characters can be printed to PostScript printers.
Importing text
You can import text created with other programs such as Final Writer, Word-
Perfect, ProWrite, Wordworth or 1st Word Plus, into a Page Stream text column
frame. While you can import text into a frameless text object, you should avoid
this because of the lack of a defined right margin.
How to import text

Choose Edit/Select All to select all the text.
Another way to select text is to place the insertion point at the beginning of the
text to select, and then to click elsewhere while holding down a Shift key. This
will select the text between the points. Shift click after the end of a selected
block to extend the block further.
To deselect text, click anywhere in the text. This will deselect the text and
reposition the insertion point.
Copying and pasting text
Once text is selected for editing in PageStream, you can cut or copy it to move
it elsewhere. Choose the Edit/Copy command to copy the text to the clipboard
without changing the selected text. Choose the Edit/Cut command to copy the
text to the clipboard and to remove the selected text from the article.
To paste copied text back into a text object, position the insertion point and
choose the EditlPaste command. Note that Page Stream uses its own internal
clipboard and not the system clipboard.
Finding text
You can search for and replace text strings with PageStream. Use the Edit!
Search Text command to find a text string, or the EditJReplace Text command
to replace one string with another.
If text is not selected before choosing the Search Text or Replace Text com-
mands, PageStream will search from the insertion point forward until it reaches
the end of the article. If text is selected, PageStream will search only the
selected text.

Style tags
A style tag is a named collection of attributes that you can apply to a block of
text without having to select each attribute manually. Style tags are used to
ensure uniformity and to save time when formatting text. While they can be
used in any type of document, their use is critical in long documents.
When you apply a style tag to a block of text, the style tag's defined attributes
will override most of the attributes already used by that text. For example, if
the text was formatted as Bookman Normal 12115 (12 point type with 15 point
fixed leading) and you applied the Body Text style to it that was defined as Tri-
umvirate Normal 10112, the existing attributes of the text would be overridden
by the style tag's attributes.
Style tags need not have every attribute defined in them. Only the attributes
defined in a style tag will override the existing attributes. For example, if the
Body Text style tag was simply Triumvirate 10, applying it to text with 15
point leading would retain the original leading amount.
To create a new style tag: Choose Textrrag to open the Tag dialog box. Type
the name for it into the text field. Click on the attributes to open dialog boxes
for the attributes you want to set. When you are done, click on Add to create
the style tag.
To modify an existing style tag: Choose Textrrag to open the Tag dialog box.
Select the tag to modify from the scrolling list. Click on the attributes to open
dialog boxes for the attributes you want to modify. When you are done, click
on Add to change the style tag.
Tabs
Pressing the Tab key allows you to indent text to a tab stop. To create a tab
stop, choose the View/Show Tabs command. A bar with dots indicating the
existing tab stops will appear at the top of each text object. Click on an existing
tab stop with the Text tool to remove it, or click on a blank area of the tab bar
to create a new one.
PageStream2 will indent the left edge of the tabbed text to the tab stops you
create. You cannot change the alignment, fill the tab, or set tabs numerically
with this version of PageStream.

You can print your PageStream documents on a large variety of printers, inclu-
ding dot matrix, inkjet and laser printers. You can also print your documents on
imagesetters and other PostScript devices such as film recorders.
Atari computers do not have a suitable system level printing system, so Page-
Stream uses custom printer drivers. Amiga computers do have a suitable sys-
tem level printing system (AmigaDos Preferences), but custom printer drivers
are also available. If you have a choice between a custom driver and an Amiga-
DOS driver, you should use the custom driver for greater speed and quality.
PageStream always uses a custom printer driver to print to PostScript printers;
you cannot print to a P03tScript printer with the Amiga Preferences PostScript
driver.
Printing on a desktop printer
Printing on a desktop printer is the same regardless of whether the printer is a
PostScript or non-PostScript printer, and whether you're using a custom or
Preferences driver.
To print on a desktop printer:
1. Choose the File/Print command.
The Print Document dialog box will open to allow you to choose a variety
of printing options.
2. Set the number of copies.
Enter the number of copies to print into the Copies text field.
3. Set which pages to print.
Choose All to print all the pages in the document, or enter the range of

Printing to disk for a service bureau's imagesetter
Most documents that are printed professionally by a commerci al printer are
reproduced from master copies printed on an imagesetter. Imagesetters such as
the Linotronic 330 can output pages on photosensitive paper or film at resolu-
tions up to 3386 dpi . The maximum resolution is dependent on the imagesetter,
but most imagesetters can print at 1200 and 2400 dpi . (Linotronic imagesetters
print at 1270 and 2540, while most other brands print at 1200 and 2400 dpi.)
Printing on an imagesetter is similar to printing on a desktop printer, except
that you will normally have to specify additional options. Crop and registration
marks are commonl y used for imagesetter printing; if you use them, you must
add one inch in both directions to the paper size.
To print on an imagesetter:
1. Choose the Prefs/Printer Settings command.
The Printer Settings dialog box will open. Load the PostScript printer driver
if it is not already loaded and choose Disk File.
2. Enter the film size.
When you are printing to an imagesetter, the first paper size text field is for
length, and the second is for roll width. You cannot set the roll width to be
greater than width of the imagesetter's roll. The maximum value for a 12"
roll is 11.7", and the maximum for an 18" roll is 17.7."
For example, if you are printing an 11x17" document with crop and regis-
tration marks, the required size will be 12x 18." If the imagesetter has a 12
inch roll, you should enter 18 in the first text field and 11.7" in the second.
If the page is small and either value will fit in the roll width text field, then
you can enter them in either order.
Click on Ok when you are done.
3. Choose the File/Print command.
The Print Document dialog box will open to allow you to choose a variety
of printing options.
4. Set which pages to print.
Choose All to print all the pages in the document, or enter the range of
pages to print in the From and To text fields .
5. Choose how to print the page.
If you are creating camera-ready copy with process colors, choose 4-Color
Separation, or if you are using spot colors, choose Mechanical ; otherwise,
choose No Separation.
Select Crop/Reg marks to print crop and registration marks. Check with
your service bureau before choosing the Mirror and Negative options.
6. Click on Print.
PageStream will open a file selector to enter a filename for the PostScript
file. Do not use the same name as your document! Use the document name
plus a ".Ps" extension. Click on Ok.
7. Take the file to the service bureau.
If you take your PostScript files to a service bureau on floppy disks, you
must ensure the service bureau can read the disks. All service bureaus,
regardless of whether they use Mac or Windows computers, should be able
to use a MS-DOS formatted disk.
Amiga computers with AmigaDos 2.1 or later can format and write to MS-
DOS (PC) disks. If you have an Amiga computer without at least AmigaDos
2.1 , you must upgrade your operating system to use MS-DOS disks. All Atari
computers can write to MS-DOS disks, and those with TOS 1.04 or later can
format MS-DOS disks.
If the resulting PostScript file is too large for a floppy disk, you will have to
compress it, send the file via modem, or buy a third party utility so that you can
use a larger capacity disk such as a Syquest cartridge or Iomega Zip disk.
Most service bureaus will be able to take your PostScript file and print it on
their image setter or printer. The instructions for printing a PostScript file to a
printer from Windows and Macintosh are listed here so that you can instruct
your service bureau how to print your PostScript file should they prove to be
incapable of doing this themselves.
Windows: Exit to MS-DOS or double click on the MS-DOS prompt icon. Type
"COPY FILENAME IB LPTl:" where FILENAME is the name of the PostScript file to
copy. (LPTl: is the most common port; change this if required.)
Macintosh: Double click on the LaserWriter Font Utility icon (it's included
with System 7), choose Utilities/Download PostScript File and then select the
PostScript file to download.

Important notes about PostScript printing
PostScript printers can fail to print a page if you use too many fonts on one
page. Type "auto-unload" in lowercase without the quotation marks into the
Special text field in Configure Printer to remove downloaded fonts from
memory after they are used. This allows you to download unlimited numbers of
fonts, but significantly slows down printing if you reuse the fonts more than
once. Type "page-unload" to unloads fonts only at the end of each page.
To create an EPS file instead of a PostScript disk file, type "eps" into the
Special text field. If you have to enter multiple commands into that field,
separate them with a comma.
Important notes about non-PostScript printing
EPS objects cannot be printed on non-PostScript printers. If an EPS object has a
bitmap preview, the low resolution preview will be printed instead; otherwise,
only the bounding box of the EPS object will be printed.
It may take some time before PageStream stops printing when you click on the
Stop button because PageStream checks the status of the button at rather long
intervals in order to speed up printing.
PageStream creates the entire page before sending it to the printer. If there is
not enough memory to create the entire page, it creates as much as it can and
then sends that band before creating the next band. This significantly slows
down printing. If you notice this occuring regularly, you should consider
adding extra memory to speed up printing. Note that a PostScript printer can
speed up printing more than adding memory and an accelerator to your
computer.

In this tutorial lesson, you will create an office newsletter. This is a good
example of how to create real-world documents with PageStream2. After com-
pleting this tutorial, you will be able to make your own newsletter, report, letter
and magazine layouts.
This tutorial was designed to be used with PageStream's default preferences. If
you have changed the default measurement system from inches, you should
restore it to inches prior to starting this tutorial.
Step 1: Starting a new document
Choose the File/New command to start a new document. The New Document
dialog box will open to set the page size.
1. Choose the FilelNew command.
The New Document dialog box will open so that you can set the page size.
2. Set the page size.
Page Size: Letter
Portrait, Single Sided
Choose Letter, Portrait and Single Sided Document. Click on Ok. Page-
Stream will open a document window containing a letter-size page.
Step 2: Setting ruler guides
Guides are non-printing dashed lines used to align the objects on the page. The
rulers must be visible to create guides, so if the rulers are not visible, choose
the View/Show Rulers command to tum them on. If the View/Show Guides
command is unchecked in the menu, choose it now. You should tum off
View/Show Grid if it is checked in the menu to keep the display uncluttered.
You need to create vertical guides at 1, 4. 125 (4 1/8), 4.375 (43/8) and 7.5
inches, and hori zontal guides at 1.25 (l 1/4),3,3.75 (3 3/4) and 10 inches. You
don't have to set the guides preci sely, because you will use them only as a
visual guide.
1. Create the vertical guides.
Position the mouse pointer over the horizontal ruler at 1". If that portion of
the ruler is cut off, scroll the page to the left. Click the left mouse button
when the pointer is on top of I" on the ruler. A vertical dashed line will
appear. If you create the guide in the wrong place, you can delete it by
clicking at the same place. Practice creating and deleting guides, and then
create the other three vertical guides.
2. Create the horizontal guides.
Position the mouse pointer over the vertical ruler at 1.25" and click the left
mouse button. Repeat for the other three horizontal guides.
Step 3: Changing view magnifications
Creating guides and many other chores are much easier when the view magnifi-
cation is higher than actual size. The top seven commands in the view menu are
used to set the view magnification. Try choosing different magnifications and
scrolling about the page with the scroll bars.
Another way to change the magnification quickly is with the Magnify tool.
When you click on the page with this tool, the magnification will be doubled. If
you hold down a Shift key whi le clicking the mouse button, the magnification
will be halved. Practice changing magnifications with the Magnify tool now.
When you are done practicing, choose the View/Show Full Width command
and scroll to the top of the page.

Step 4: Placing a graphic
PageStream allows you to import pictures and drawings created in other pro-
grams. For this newsletter, you will import a drawing created with an illustra-
tion program to use as a logo. Ensure that the Layout/Snap-to-Grid command is
checked in the menu and that LayoutiSnap-to-Guides is unchecked before
continuing.
1. Choose the File/Import Graphics command.
This will open a file selector to choose the file to import. Select the
BioTech.dr2d file (BIOTECH.DR2 on an Atari computer) in the Graphics
directory, and click on Ok.
2. Choose the import options.
The Choose Type dialog box will open. There are no options for importing
drawings, so click on Ok.
3. Place the graphic.
The mouse pointer will change to a picture frame comer. This represents the
top left comer of the graphic. Position the mouse pointer at X: 1", Y :0.5".
Positioning the mouse accurately is easy because small "hash" marks on the
rulers will move as you move the mouse. Align the hash marks with the I
inch tick mark on the horizontal ruler and with the 0.5 inch tick mark on the
vertical ruler.
Press and hold the left mouse button to begin placing the graphic. Drag the
mouse down to the right. Without releasing the mouse button, press and
hold a Shift key. Note that when you drag the mouse you will now be con-
strained to the graphic's original aspect ratio (the horizontal to vertical ratio
of its size). If you release the Shift key, you can scale the graphic to any
aspect ratio.
Keep holding down the Shift key and drag the mouse until the right edge of
it is at 7.5". This is harder to do because there won't be a tick mark this
time, but you don' t have to worry about the vertical size because the Shift
key will take care of it. Release the mouse button to place the graphic at this
size. If you make a mistake and place the graphic at the wrong position or
size, simply delete it by pressing the Del key and import it again.

Step 5: Setting the grid
Before continuing, you need to change the grid setting to allow for greater
precision.
1. Choose the Layout/Set Grid command.
The Define Grid Spacing dialog box will open.
2. Set the grid spacing.
Enter 0.125 into both of the User text fields. The left one sets the horizontal
grid spacing, and the right one sets the vertical spacing. Click on Ok.
Step 6: Drawing lines
Now you will draw a horizontal line, or rule, above the logo.
1. Choose the Line tool from the toolbox.
The mouse pointer will change to a drawing crosshair. Position the crosshair
at X:3", Y: 1.375" (l 3/8).
2. Click to start the line.
Click the left mouse button and then move the mouse to the right. Hold
down a Shift key to constrain the Line tool to drawing horizontal, vertical
and 45 degree lines. Move the crosshair to x:7.5" .
3. Click to end the line.
Click the mouse button again to end the line.
If you make a mistake, you can choose EditlUndo to try again, or you can
edit the line to move or resize it by choosing ObjectlEdit Coordinates.
Step 7: Changing the line weight
When you draw a line with PageStream, it will initially be O.5pt thick, unless
you have changed the default thickness after starting the program. The rule for
this newsletter should be 3 points thick, so you must change the thickness with
the Line Style dialog box.
1. Choose the Object tool from the toolbox.
The line will be selected automatically, because it was the last object drawn.
Objects must be selected before you can change their attributes.
2. Change the weight of the line.
Choose the ObjectlLine Style command. This will open a dialog box to
select line stroke attributes. Enter 3 into the Width text field, or click on the
fourth line thickness icon to select it automatically. Click on Ok .

Step 8: Saving your work.
It's a good idea to save your work regularly to avoid data loss in case of a
power failure or other problem.
1. Choose the File/Save command.
A file selector will open to specify a name and directory for your newsletter.
2. Enter a filename.
Choose a directory and type Biotech.Newsletter (BIOTECH.DOC on an Atari
computer) into the File text field.
3. Click on Ok.
PageStream will save the document.
Step 9: Creating a frame less text object
Now you will create a small block of text to place above the line you drew.
PageStream offers two choices for placing text on the page: text column frames
for large amounts of text or frameless text objects for small blocks. A frameless
text object is more suitable for this purpose.
1. Choose the Text tool from the toolbox.
The mouse pointer will change to a text cursor shape.
2. Click to create the frameless text object.
Click anywhere on a blank area of the page to create the text object. A small
vertical bar will appear where you clicked-this is the text insertion point
and shows where text will appear when you type.
3. Type the text.
Type the word "NEWS" in uppercase without the quotation marks. The text
will be very small because PageStream's default text attributes are set for
normal body type.
4. Select the text.
Choose the Edit/Select All command to select the text you just typed. You
must select text before you can change its attributes.
5. Set the font and type size.
Choose the Style/Font command to open the Set Font dialog box. Choose
Times from the left scrolling li st, Bold Italic from the middle list, and 64
from the right list. Click on Ok.

time you will set the text attributes before typing the text. PageStream allows
you to do it either way.
1. Choose the Text tool from the toolbox.
The mouse pointer will change to a text cursor shape.
2. Click to create the frameless text object.
Click anywhere on a blank area of the page to create the text object.
3. Set the font and type size.
Choose the Style/ Font command to open the Set Font dialog box. Select
Triumvirate Bold 42 and click on Ok.
4. Type the text.
Do not click on the page again before typing; if you do, the text attributes
you set will be lost. Type "MOTHER NATURE WINS" without quotation marks.

5. Change the tracking.
Large type should more tightly tracked (spaced) than small text. Select the
text with Edit/Select All and then choose the Format/ Line/Char Spacing
command. This will open the Change Line/Char Spacing dialog box.
Change the character spacing (tracking) to -3 and click on Ok. Note that we
could have done this before typing the text.
6. Move the text object.
Choose the Object tool and move the frameless text object so that its top left
coordinate is X:l", Y:3".

Step 12: Creating text column frames
Now you will create the text column frames which will hold the main text for
the newsletter. These are easy to place correctly because you have already
created the guides for them. Before you begin, choose the View/Show Full
Page command so that you can see the entire page.
1. Choose the Column tool from the toolbox.
The mouse pointer will change to a drawing cross hair.
2. Start the column frame.
Position the mouse pointer at X: 1", Y:3.75". This is the intersection of a
horizontal and vertical guide. Click the mouse to start drawing.
3. End the column frame.
Move the crosshair to X:4.125" , Y: 10". This is also a guide intersection.
Click the mouse to end drawing. Note how easy the guides made it to draw
this column frame.
4. Repeat for the second frame.
Draw another column from X:4.375", Y:3.75" to X:7.5", Y:lO" .
Step 13: Inserting a text file
Now you will insert a text file into the new columns. Importing text into
PageStream is similar to placing a graphic.
1. Choose the Text tool and click anywhere in the left column frame.
The insertion point will be placed in the top left comer of the text column.
Note that a frameless text object will be created if you click on a blank part
of the page, but not if you click in a text column.
2. Choose the File/Import Text command.
This will open a file selector to choose the file to insert. Select the
Lorem.TXT file in the Text directory and click on Ok.
3. Set the import options.
The Choose Type dialog box will open. Click on "Ascii Text" in the "Type"
scrolling list. (This is the only option, but will reveal options in the "As"
list.) The default "Paragraph has LF" option does not need to be changed, so
click on Ok. This will insert the text into the column.
EE
If there is too much text to
fit into a text column frame,
a text overset indicator will
be displayed at the bottom
left corner of the frame.

The text you inserted will be the same size and font as the headline because
PageStream defaults to the last used text attributes when you create a new
text column. Note the overset indicator at the bottom left comer of the text
column. This indicates that there is too much text to fit into the column.
4. Change the font and size.
Choose Edit/Select All and then choose Stylet Font. Change the attributes to
Times Normal 12.
5. Change the tracking and leading.
Choose Format/ Line/Char Spacing. The tracking (character spacing) will
be set to -3 because that was previously set. Change it to 0 now. The
leading (line spacing) will be set to 0, which is too tight for body text.
Change it to 2 and then click on Ok.

Step 14: Linking text frames
The text in the first text column frame will still be over set. You need to link the
first frame to the second so that the text will fill both of them.
1. Begin text linking.
Choose the Layout/Link Columns command. The mouse pointer will
change to an empty rectangle.
2. Select the text column frame to link from.
Click on the left text column frame. The mouse pointer will change to a
filled rectangle to indicate that text routing has been started.
3. Select the frame to link to.
Click on the right text column frame. Text from the left frame will flow into
the right frame.
4. End text linking.
Click again on the right frame to end text linking. There will still be too
much text to fit into the second frame, but don't worry about that for now.

Congratulations! You have finished the first page of the newsletter. Now is a
good time to save your document again (choose File/Save and then click on
Replace).
Step 15: Creating multiple text column frames
There will be three more pages in this newsletter. While you could draw the
text frames on each page, it is much easier to create them all at once with the
Create Columns command. Change to page two now by clicking on the Next
Page tool in the toolbox.
1. Choose the Layout/Create Columns command.
The Create Columns dialog box will open.
2. Set the column options.
Inside: lin, Outside: lin
Top: 1.25in. Bottom: lin
Columns: 2
Gutter: 0.25in
From: 2, To: 4
Link Columns: Yes
Enter the values as shown in the dialog box above. Click on Ok.
PageStream will create the text column frames on pages two through four.
The text from the first page will not automatically flow onto the second page
because the text frames are not linked together. The Link Columns checkbox in
the Create Columns dialog box ensured that the new frames would be linked
together, but they are not linked to the ones on the first page.
To link the frames from page one to the frames on page two, click on the Pre-
vious Page tool in the toolbox and then repeat what you learned in Step 13.
1. Begin text linking.
Change to page one by clicking on the Previous Page tool. Choose the
LayoutlLink Columns command.
2. Select the text column frame to link from.
Click on the right text column frame on page one.
3. Select the frame to link to.
Change to page two by clicking on the Next Page tool. Click on the left text
column frame on page two.
4. End text linking.
Click again on the same frame to end text linking.
Lessons 51
52 PageStream2 User Manual
Change to pages three and four to see the text that has flowed from page one
through to the rest of the text frames .
Step 16: Practicing what you have learned
There are several subtitles in the newsletter article which should be set in larger
type. These are single lines of text within the body of the article. You can select
this text with the Text tool by dragging from the start of the title to its end.
Then use what you learned in Step 12 to change the font and size. Pick a head-
line font and size that you like, and use the same attributes for the remaining
headlines.
The text doesn't entirely fill page four because a newsletter would normally
include additional graphics to illustrate its articles. If you have clip art that you
would like to practice with, import it in the same manner as learned in Step 4.
You can flow text around it with the ObjectfI'ext Wrap command.
When you are done practicing, you can print the newsletter with the File/Print
command. Refer to pages 33 to 36 for instructions on printing. Note that you
must choose a printer driver with the Prefs/Printer Settings command before
you print for the first time.

Text menu
This command inserts a "soft" hyphen at the insertion point. PageStream's

not wish to add all mis-hyphenated words to the hyphenations exception dic-
tionary. This command inserts a conditional hyphen. If the word falls at the
end of the line, PageStream will break it at the conditional hyphen position if
required.
This command is superior to simply entering a dash. If you edit previous text,
it is possible that a manually entered dash would no longer be at the end of the
line and you might not see the error. This command's conditional hyphen will
appear only when required.
If text is selected when you choose this command, you will be prompted to
remove manual and/or automatic hyphenation from the selected text.
Text menu
This command hyphenates selected text by using a combi nation of hyphena-
tion algorithms, hyphenation rul es and an exceptions dictionary. (Refer to the

PageStream does not automatically hyphenate text, so you must batch
hyphenate it
To hyphenate text, select the text and choose the Batch Hyphenate command.

a[451 ,f[901 Thi s wi ll print all pages with a screen angle of 45 degrees and a frequency of 901pi .
auto-unl oad,f[65,-,s,501,a[30,-,-,-1 Thi s will print page I with a frequency of 651pi and an angle
of 30 degrees. Page 2 will use the printer' s default frequency and angle defaults because of the
dash entry for default. Page 3 will not be printed because of the "s" (skip) entry. Page 4 will be
printed at 50lpi with the default screen angle. Subsequent pages will be printed as multiples of the
the entered values. i.e., Page 5 will be printed in the same manner as page I, page 6 as page 2, etc.

Entering special characters
The Amiga and Atari keyboards do not have a key for every character that you
may wish to type. AmigaDOS does provide additional characters with the Alt
key, but PageStream allows you to enter many more characters. PageStream
provides three ways to enter these characters:
Mnemonic equivalents: Hold down the Ctrl key while typing the "c" key.
Type the two character mnemonic equivalent of the character you wish to
enter.
Unicode value: Hold down the Ctrl key while typing the "d" key. Type the
three digit character ID.
Alt equivalents: PageStream supports all of the Amiga's Alt key sequences.
Note that Compugraphic fonts generally have more characters than can be
printed to a PostScript printer. In general, all normal keyboard characters in
Compugraphic font s can be printed, as well as most of those in these tables.
Some characters, such as the registration and copyright marks, cannot be
printed for resident PostScript printer fonts with this version of PageStream.
If a font does not use standard latin characters, you should create a font
specification sheet to view its characters. Use the FontSpec.template file
provided with PageStream to do this, or create your own.
The tables on the following pages show only those characters which cannot be
accessed directly from the keyboard.

Appendix C: Troubleshooting
Some text didn't print: Compugraphic fonts, such as the Times, Triumvirate
and Garamond fonts included with PageStream, cannot be printed at sizes
larger than approximately 60 points with this version of PageStream. (The
actual size limit varies with the resolution of your printer, the font design, and
the character shapes.) This is due to a limitation of the Compugraphic font
engine Soft-Logik licensed from Agfa, the creator of the Compugraphic font
system. The obvious workaround is to use a non-Compugraphic font when
printing large text. This problem only affects non-PostScript printers.
Compugraphic fonts don't show up on screen: If you choose Times, Tri-
umvirate or Garamond and you see only spaces when you type, you have not
correctly set your font paths with the Font Manager dialog box. Refer to the
sidebar on page seven for details.
Quotation marks don't show up: If you choose Times, Triumvirate or
Garamond and nothing happens when you enter a typographic quotation mark,
update the path containing the font with the Font Manager dialog box's Update
button.
Special characters don't print to PostScript: Some characters, such as
the registration mark and copyright symbol, cannot be printed to PostScript for
the standard PostScript fonts with this version of PageStream. Use the
equivalent characters in the Symbol font instead.
Pictures are black and white on screen: Pictures are shown only in black
and white with this version of PageStream.
Cannot edit imported drawings: You must ungroup them with the Group
command first.
Icons are not created (Amiga): Icons will not be created if PageStream is
run from a shell . You must run it from the Workbench to have it create project
icons.
There are only four colors on screen: You must set the number of colors
with a tooltype before starting PageStream. Refer to page five for details.
Cannot export graphics: You can only export graphics from a picture
window as a Degas fi le with this version of PageStream. No other export
options are offered.
