    Nice program, pretty much appreciated. And an impressive demonstration of what Hollywood can do.

    Why the name change?

    I believe it was due to its limited handling/support of the features you might expect of a full DTP program, and that it cannot print directly from within the program. It has been programmed to create PDFs for export to any system within the PDF standard and OS's supported. So, a more suited name was selected by jPV. It works as intended and it's useful so I'll use it if I need to. More kudos to jPV as far as I'm concerned. 8-D

    In any case it's a FREE program so ... whatever name jPV chooses is OK with me. :-P

    However, jPV might want to add something more to this question posed, and my response. 8-)

    Why the name change?

    I felt a bit unsure about how to name the program to not give false expectations for users. I originally named it as RNODTP in the development phase, because its usablility and basic feature set were similar to a DTP program, but after all it's missing some features people could expect to see in a DTP program as pointed out by couple of my "helpers". Calling it something like "PDF creator/maker/etc" was on the table too, but then people easily would expect it to load/edit PDF files too, or it would have sounded more like a some sort of a converter program. So, a compromise was used finally.

    These were never intended to be uploaded to a public file repository, and I've asked them to be removed from that site, but it seems to be slow on that regard. In any case the initiative, and a donation to get started, for this program came from the AROS camp and that's why I gave them alpha/beta versions before the release.

    This is great. MorphOS was missing something like TurboPrint "Graphics publisher" and I believe RNOPublisher fills that gap just fine.
