Byline 1.0

Released in 1988 by SkiSoft, Inc / Ashton-Tate
For DOS

Image Quality: Unmodified

Byline was an early desktop publishing program targeted squarely at
DOS users. The box proudly proclaims: "Because Byline works the way
you do, you don't waste time with a mouse or a new graphics
environment." It does not support mice at all. It has a WYSIWYG
preview, but the interface is not interactive.

Byline might be thought of as a "middle ground" publishing program,
with more functionality than a typical low-end budget oriented
publishing program, but still targeted at lower-end business and home
users.

It supports multiple typefaces, columns, rulers, borders, headlines,
automatic kerning, bullets, and graphic sizing and scaling. It works
with dot-matrix printers as well as laser printers.

It did gain a following among DOS users, but was eventually overtaken
by mouse/GUI based publishing tools such as PageMaker and Ventura
Publisher.

Reportedly, Byline was written in the Forth programming language.

Requires 384K RAM, Dual 360k floppy or hard drive. Supports CGA,
Hercules, EGA, AT&T 6300, Toshiba 3100, and Wyse WY-700 video.
Supports HP LaserJet, Apple LaserWriter, and Postscript printers.

Note: The setup program may have problems adding the C:\BYLINE folder
to the path.

Note: This copy was marked as an "evaluation copy", but appears to be
the full, normal product.

Archive includes five 360k 5.25" floppy disk images.
