Papyrus 5

Postby mzry » Fri Feb 24, 2017 10:03 am

I'd really like to get a hold of Papyrus 5 (or later) but cannot find a copy. I would be willing to pay for it if it were available for sale, if not does anyone have an english copy I could have?

Thanks all,

(ps if I'm not allowed to ask this, please don't shoot me down I'm not aware)

Is Papyrus 5 the last English version besides Papyrus X? I know there was a German v6 and v7.

Yes, I have Papryus X also, just was never able to find an English v6 or v7. As far as I know, 16/32 shut down last year.

16/32 Systems shutdown last year? What a pity. So Papyrus X is no longer sold?
If it's the case, I don't have any problem to share mine.

http://Www.papyrus.de and ask Uli if they still sell Atari version or maybe he is willing to give it for free? :)

Btw
Latest Windows and Mac vesrion of Papyrus is from 2011.!!! Uli promise for few times that english version is comming but nothing so far :(
It is understandable since Papyrus become probably BEST text procesor on the World (and Office suit) so now it is not only problem to translate user interface from german to english but also to implement gramar and other stuff in english...

Yeah, I have the installation CD to prove it :wink: I seem to remember that 16/32 made the translation themselves.

It would be uber cool if Uli allow to use Papyrus X on Atari for free!

Than we would have most powerful text processor on ancient computer :)

How is printing support on the Atari version? I've got a networked laser jet I'd love to be able to print things on.

Ha, I do have that installed, though all I have tested with it is the initial raw text test.

You have to use NVDI with the right driver ( A PCL laser jet driver in your case) and set NVDI to print to file.
You may also be able to print pdf and tiff files directly depending on your network printer.

I asked brother Ramps (Hendrik and Ulli):

My question:
since you do not sell anymore Papyrus for Atari ST, did you think to release it as a freeware?
It would be real waste not to use best text processor on vintage computer :) there are few of us that still use ST for nostalgic reasons.


Hendrik replay:
Hi Milan,

As for the Atari ST version, we couldn't officially make it free at the moment - we just don't know the right implications that would follow, especially as we also had distributors involved (HiSoft and 16/32 Soft if I remember). Maybe in the future? ;-)

Best regards,
Hendrik

Maybe more of us should ask them? Keep in mind that they are very busy because of upcoming ENGLISH version of Papyrus (first english version since 2011.!)

I would certainly like to get a copy, I know 16/32 shut down. Is HiSoft still around?

@wongck
The test worked fine. Been waiting to get my ct60e before I do more Falcon work... I have the HP LaserJet MFP m477fdn, which supports direct lpd and google print, so everything your program supports, I just need something more to test with :)

Papyrus is certainly a very nice program.
I was using it to test the PDF maker.
Both Atari works and Papyrus were the software that correctly sent VDI commands to the printer.

I bought Players when it first came out and upgrade to 8.23 over the years.

It is one of the best applications ever written. It knocks spots off Msword.

Even without grammar support an English version would we will worth having. A great shame they don't offer a new version.
