There are two optional ways to install the progam:
1) Use the Grunch program to install the program automatically. It will also
allow Ambient to recognise RNOPublisher document files and open them with
the program when double-clicked (installs own document filetype).
2) Install it manually by copying the whole directory anywhere you want, and
configure Ambient to recognise RNOPublisher documents by copying the
provided filetype to the corresponding path in your SYS: partition and
modifying the command path in the x-rnopublisher file to point to where
the program is located.


- Remember to click the "Apply changes" button after any modifications to
- Double-clicking an object moves it one step forward in the layer stack.
- Move several objects at once by multi-selecting them from the object list.
- Document title + author fields are saved to both RNOPublisher and PDF files.
- Auto saving only works on a document that has been created and saved.
- Templates are stored in the Templates directory in the program directory,
and users can modify them or create new ones from them.
- Qualifier keys when handling objects with the mouse:
Shift . . - Constrains object movement/resizing to vertical direction
Ctrl . . . - Constrains object movement/resizing to horizontal direction

Je suis en train de le tester et si, comme le dit Highlander, l'interface est déconcertante au premier abord, le logiciel semble assez puissant pour pouvoir créer des docs et autres types de documents PDF ! Bravo jPV !
