What is PageStream Pro?

PageStream Professional includes numerous features unique to it plus TextFX, Borders 1 & 2, Gary's Effects, Paper Direct templates, and Home & Office forms.

In the past, selected objects could only be exported to a object oriented drawing format, but now the objects can also be rendered into a bitmap at any resolution and saved in any supported picture format. A specified page of a PDF file can now be placed on the page like an EPS graphic. Automatically adjust text width for justified text by slight amounts, so the white space in justified text can be more even between lines of a paragraph. For those PhotoShop-like effects, you can now apply a gradient or radial blend mask to pictures/EPS/PDF/ and Drawings. These objects will then appear to fade into the page beneath it. Of course, no update is complete without improvements to the drawing tools. Now individual paths can be joined in unique ways in what we call path math.Draw two intersecting objects, and create a single new path that is the outside trace of those objects, or a new object that represents the common region in both objects, a new object that removes any common region, or a new object that has the second objects area removed from the first object.

As with all of PageStream's features, you can combine these new features with existing features in a astronomical number of ways. Need a gradient blend from solid to transparent? No problem!

The previous release of PageStream Professional was a bundle of PageStream and a number of add ons. With this release, PageStream Professional now includes numerous features unique to it plus TextFX, Borders 1 & 2, Gary's Effects, Paper Direct templates, and Home & Office forms.

+ Place PDF Objects - A specific page of a PDF can now be placed onto a PageStream page just like an EPS graphic.

+ Export Objects as Bitmap - In the past, selected objects could only be exported to a object oriented drawing format, but now the objects can also be rendered into a bitmap at any resolution and saved in any supported picture format.

+ Automatically Adjust Text Width for Justified Text - By adjusting the text width by slight amounts, the white space in justified text can be more even between lines of text in a justified paragraph.

+ Gradient/Radial Blend Masks for Pictures/EPS/PDF/Drawings – These objects can be made to appear to fade into the page beneath it. Samples can be seen in the last issue of eDTP World.

+ Path Math: Union/Add/Unique/Subtract – Draw two intersecting objects, and create a single new path that is the outside trace of those objects (Add), or a new object that represents the common region in both objects (Union), a new object that removes any common region (Unique), or a new object that has the second objects area removed from the first object (Subtract).
