Full-featured APPLE GUIDE AUTHORING TOOL Now Mac OS 8 Savvy
TORONTO – June 9, 1998 – Lakewood Software today released AG Author 1.1, an
update to our full-featured authoring tool for designing Apple Guide help
The update improves AG Author’s compatibility with Mac OS 8.x.
Released in 1997, AG Author continues to be the only Apple Guide authoring
tool that supports virtually every Apple Guide parameter. AG Author has been
favorably reviewed in MacTech Magazine (June/97) and received a four-star
rating in MacUser UK Magazine (August/97).
AG Author includes support for all Apple Guide syntax (except Mixin
parameters), the library-style management of Apple Guide media, and a fully
customizable project template.
AG Author can be used to create all types of guide files, including Full
Access, Single List, and Presentation type guide files. Multiple projects can
be open for editing simultaneously.
In addition to the above features, the defaults for virtually any element of
an Apple Guide project can be customized using the AG Author project template.
As well as setting the defaults for project globals, developers can maintain a
default definition library of Apple Guide elements that are automatically
available to all new projects.
Other features include: a WYSIWYG List Manager, flexible compile options, a
find & replace tool for scripts, and integrated support for styled, colored,
and hot text.
