RagTime documents can be exported to PDF. By default, Adobe Distiiler is utilized both on Windows and Mac OS X. Distiller is the best choice for the printing industry, but comes with an additional price tag. However, there are cost-free alternatives, if the PDF is to be used on the monitor, in the web, or to be printed on a desktop printer only. Mac OS X has its own built-in PostScript to PDF converter. And for Windows GhostScript distributed with the GNU General Public License can be used. The later is no part of RagTime, but has to be installed separately.
First time you start RagTime, you'll be asked to have a look at the "First Steps in RagTime" document. This document shows you how to work with frames, spreadsheet and layout. However, if you are a real RagTime pro, you'll note this is a really tricky SlideTime document. Try to hack it!
