    What has caused it to freeze for you? :-?

    Maybe we should all know of each and every freeze so that as many bugs can be removed, and is Deron and Frank already aware of these issues/freezes you have encountered? :-?

    I should also like to thank you, and your son, for all your work with Deron and Frank to get it to where it currently is right now.

    I also would like to know if you are still working on the PageStream icon/tool/gadget set and trying to improve their appearance, as some of them still need an overhaul, one in point is the "Save as PDF" as it doesn't have anything on the icon that indicates it is specifically for PDF saving as there is no usual PDF logo or graphic on it at all, and who uses a floppy disk these days anyway? :-?

    My comment about it being 'very limited' was based on encountering the "freeze" and not being able to find a way around it in a timely manner and so wanted other intended buyers to be aware of this pitfall, as I didn't want even MorphOS users getting stuck with PageeStream and us get to the situation that v5.0.5.8 was in for 15 years with no way forward ... until now! ;-)

    My concern was that if it wasn't fixed or bypassed somehow (which I have since found a way to do for now) then it definitely would be 'very limited' as "Create Text Frames" is a very important menu option, and one that cannot simply be ignored or overlooked in day-to-day use with PageStream. :-)

    Christoph, I am glad you have said something now as the silence has been 'deafening' and as you have more insight into its day-to-day use than anyone else in the MorphOS community then it is your professional use of it that should have a voice and speak up for us to know more of your findings, and what other issues there are, however minor, so that we can be aware of what might happen if we use a certain feature that is still being worked on by Frank and Deron.

    I agree with that, but that is when it gets to where it is running stably with no apparent "freezing" or other "lockups" occuring. 8-D

    You first .... if you're OK with that? :-? ... Monsieur PageStream. 8-D
