Tools for online editors
This page provides links to several vendors of software tools that online editors (and writers) may find useful. (There's more to come.)
I probably won't list the big, well-known tools like Word, FrameMaker, and Adobe Acrobat, but rather focus on less-known tools and add-ons. Please feel welcome to suggest your favorites.
- Blue Squirrel
- ClickBook, WebPrinter, WebSeeker, Grab-a-Site, others.
- FrameMaker tools and resources
- Various vendor sites providing information and tools.
- Help authoring tools
- Tools for developing help for Windows, Macintosh, and browser-based help.
- Miscellaneous tools for Windows systems
- HTML Indexer, Macro Magic, and FAR.
- Screen capture and graphics tools for Windows
- Just a few of the many tools available.
- Editing macros for Word and WordPerfect
- Some macros from Matthew Stevens.
- Typographic spaces - TrueType font
- WordPerfect for Windows does not provide for typographic spaces (fixed
spaces of various widths that are proportional of the base font size). This
font provides those spaces.
- Conversion programs for units of measurement
- Master Converter (shareware),
Conversion Buddy (freeware), Convert
(freeware). There are many others.
- Barcoding software
Lite was the cheapest barcode software I could find that included the
code type I needed. It claims to "easily add perfect bar codes to Word,
Access, WordPerfect, PageMaker, Quark, etc... any Windows application."
I haven't tried it, so I can't comment on how well it works.
