WPTools V5.0 Release 1 is available for registered customers. (The upgrade is free for all who ordered WPTools 4 after 15. Oct 2003). WPTools 5 is based on a new “RTF engine” which is much more powerful and versatile than the old. So it supports nested tables and row merging, WYSIWYG header+footer editing (in page layout view) – double or multi column page layout view and filling signs for tabstop.
Very impressive is the multi view capability: multiple editors can edit the same text!
WPTools 5 includes strong RTF and HTM/CSS capabilities. Internally it works with datastructures which mimic HTML and cascading style sheets.
Text can wrap on both sides of floating images!
For now, new WPTools customers will get V4 and V5.
