Mountain View, California-based Macintosh and PC-DOS-compatible software developer T/Maker Co has announced that it will release Windows Scrapbook+, the first scrapbook to run under Windows on MS-DOS micros. The company claims it is also the first scrapbook in either the Windows or Macintosh world to store and view encapsulated PostScript files. Scrapbook+ brings capabilities to Windows that aren’t found on the Macintosh, claims Heidi Roizen, T/Maker’s president and chief executive. The standard scrapbooks, even the advanced scrapbooks, on the Macintosh are limited in terms of what they store, how they view and how quickly they can retrieve. Windows Scrapbook+ sets a new standard for storing and viewing graphics. It’s a necessity for anybody doing any desktop publishing or presentations under Windows, Windows Scrapbook+ acts as a visual database for storing and viewing EPS files, metafiles, sylk files, standard bitmaps, and ASCII and Windows Write text. It manages images and text in the Scrapbook through the use of thumbnail sketches. Thumbnail sketches are miniature versions of full-size images in Scrapbook+. Up to a full screen of thumbnails can be viewed and used as an electronic catalogue for visually locating images. Scrapbook+ entries can also be labelled and found through the use of keyword searches. AutoPaste and AutoCapture are two important capabilities. AutoPaste will automatically paste copied or cut images or text from an underlying application into Windows Scrapbook+. AutoCapture enables the user to capture the full screen to the scrapbook. Other capabilities of the product include the ability to create and open multiple scrapbook files, block or net selections, and batch importing and exporting of different file types such as bitmap, EPS or Sylk. Windows Scrapbook+ will retail for an introductory $129.95 and will begin shipping on December 1.
