Adobe's DTP software, HomePublisher was yet another acquisition gained from the Aldus line-up to be absorbed into Adobe's growing stock inventory (Aldus in turn, had acquired this from Silicon Beach Software).

Previously marketed by Aldus, HomePublisher was initially known as "Personal Press", then "HomePublisher", reaching version 2.0.2 before being acquired by Adobe:

Meant for the home and small business sector, HomePublisher was still a very complex software that required learning tasks that you'd find in the major commercial DTP packages of the period such as PageMaker and QuarkXPress.

Abobe HomePublisher then languished and was shelved as a product at version 2.1

Architecture: 68k PPC

68k & PPC (FAT)

PDF manual uploaded separately.

Version 2.0.2 is 68k native, only. It will run under SSW 6.0.3 to Mac OS 9.2.2

Version 2.1 is both 68k & PPC native. Untested on earlier OS's by myself, runs fine in Mac OS 9.x
