New
Creates a new PageStream document. Opens a dialog box allowing you to set the document name, the page size and orientation of the default master page, the margin and column guides, and the double-sided and facing pages modes.

See: Getting Started > Exploring PageStream > Creating a New Document

Open
Opens an existing PageStream document.

See: Getting Started > Exploring PageStream > Opening a Document

Open Recent
Opens a recent PageStream document.

See: Getting Started > Exploring PageStream > Opening a Document > Recent documents

Append
Appends an existing PageStream document to the current one in the active document window.

See: Getting Started > Exploring PageStream > Opening a Document > Appending a document

Close
Closes the document in the active document window.

Save
Saves the document in the active document window. This will open a file selector for you to choose a name if the document was not previously saved before.

See: Getting Started > Exploring PageStream > Saving a Document

Save As
Saves the document in the active document window under a different name.

See: Getting Started > Exploring PageStream > Saving a Document

Save As Template
Saves the document in the active document window as a template, which will open in an unnamed window, protecting the original document from being overwritten by saving it in PageStream.

See: Getting Started > Exploring PageStream > Saving a Document > Saving as a template

Revert
Reverts the document to its last saved status. This is the same as closing a document without saving it and then re-opening it.

See: Getting Started > Exploring PageStream > Saving a Document > Revert

Save as PDF
Opens the Save as PDF dialog box which provides control over the creation of a PDF file representation of the current document for use in distribution on the Internet and for electronic documentation.

See: Printing > Creating Documents for the World Wide Web > Saving a PageStream document as a PDF File

Collect for Output
Saves the document in the active document window in a new folder and under a possible new name, and copies all external graphic items to that same folder.

See: Printing > Printing on an Imagesetter > Using a Service Bureau > Collect for Output

Insert Text
Inserts a text file in the current text frame or text block. The insertion point needs to be positioned for this command to be available. Text filters will be used to import text from foreign text formats.

See: Text > Typing and Importing Text > Importing Text > How to import text

Place Graphic
Places a graphic in the document window. Graphic filters will be used to import graphics in PageStream. Graphics may be made external to save memory and drive space.

See: Objects > Graphics > Importing Graphics > How to import graphics

Export Text
Exports the selected text to a file. Text filters will be used to translate the text to foreign formats, but some attributes may be lost unless you use PageStream's native IFF CTXT format.

See: Text > Typing and Importing Text > Exporting Text > How to export text

Export Graphic
Exports the selected object(s) to a file. If a bitmap picture is selected, suitable graphic formats will be presented. If another PageStream object or several objects are selected, suitable drawing formats will be suggested. In the latter case, it is recommended to use PageStream's native IFF ILUS drawing format to avoid loss of attributes.

See: Objects > Graphics > Exporting Graphics > How to export graphics

Acquire
Places a graphic in the document window from an attached scanner. This option is dimmed when no Acquire modules are present.

See: Objects > Graphics > Importing Graphics > How to import graphics

Preferences
Opens the Preferences dialog box, allowing you to customize PageStream to your liking: autosave and autobackup options, revision control, undo options, typographic aids, default language, default font and size, default measurements, coordinates display, double click options, duplicate and nudge offsets, interface view options, zoom range, default folders to use, place graphic options, insert text options, automatic text frame options, toolbox formats, drag zoom options, default shape attributes, text frame transparency and toolbar configuration.

See: Getting Started > Customizing PageStream

System Preferences
Allows you to install font drawers, choose "send to editor" scripts, set the screen dpi, and on the Amiga select the screenmode used to run PageStream.

See: Getting Started > Customizing PageStream > Amiga System Preferences

Print Setup
Opens the Print Setup dialog box, allowing you to set up the printing options specific to the printer selected. Under MacOS, the system's print setup options for the connected printer will appear. Under AmigaOS & Linux, a custom print setup requester is presented. Under Windows, a mix of custom and system options will be presented. In these dialog boxes, you generally choose the printer port, whether you print to the printer or an external file, the printer resolution, the paper size and orientation, the dither method, etc.

See: Printing > Print Setup

Print
Opens the Print dialog box, allowing you to print the document in the active document window. In this dialog box, you choose the number of copies you want to print, the page range, the print method used (grayscale, color, color separations, process separations, spot separations), the scale used (actual size, thumbnails, scale to fit, custom %), tiling options, and other miscellaneous options (collate copies, reverse order, print blank pages, print pictures, printers' marks, emulsion down, negative).

See: Getting Started > Printing, Printing > Printing on a Desktop Printer, Printing > Printing on an Imagesetter and Printing > Printing Color Separations

Quit
Closes all document windows and quits PageStream. You will be prompted to save changes for every modified document.
