Description

Press release announcing shipment of an enhanced MultiMate Advantage Word Processor with the option of document or page orientation, an optional, pull-down menu interface consistent with those found in Ashton-Tate's dBASE III PLUS, Framework II and RapidFile, a merge with dBASE files without leaving MultiMate; an extensive, continual undo/delete function to retrieve deleted text (limited only by disk space), increased laser support that allows up to 26 fonts within a document and up to 18
soft (down-loadable) fonts, and higher performance. The new, direct dBASE merge feature makes MultiMate Advantage II a convenient word processing companion for dBASE users. dBASE merge allows users to select and merge with existing dBASE records to generate personalized form letters. Other product highlights include a "hot start" menu bypass, sixfunction math, auto-hyphenation, sorting within a document, single-key execution, and an FFTDCA conversion feature for FFTDCA-formatted files. Donated by Ed Esber. 6 scanned pages.
