RagTime 6 - simply productive
For more than ten years, the RagTime business publishing solution has enabled users to easily and professionally set up office and creative design documents. RagTime 6, introduced in 2006, made it even easier to use, while incorporating sophisticated design technologies like transparencies, PDF and HTML output.
RagTime is the perfect match of an office and a desktop publishing application: the software combines word processing, spreadsheet, diagrams, images, and graphics in a comfortable layout environment. RagTime is easy to use and covers all needs, from the “ad hoc” set up of simple forms to the database driven production of a multi-language technical catalog. RagTime is offered in identical versions for Mac and Windows, and is licensed for a main and a secondary computer. Thus full compatibility is guaranteed for mixed Windows and Mac installations.
