Importing Text

You can import ASCII text files in PageStream. If you wish to import text attributes, paragraph attributes and style tags, you may also import text files saved in the RTF (Rich Text Format) format. The vast majority of word processors can save in the RTF format. Check your word processor's documentation to learn about how to export text in the standard RTF text format. Other formats are also supported.
