Guide Review - RagTime Solo
Home users can get a taste of what real page layout is all about without paying a penny. Within a frames-based environment text, graphics, spreadsheets, charts, and tables are combined to create complete documents. RagTime offers typographic controls, color separations, unlimited master pages, automatic generation of table of contents and index, and footnotes management along with spreadsheet calculations. The Inventory Window for viewing and working with all components of a document is a great feature. For those users who want to do page layout, this is an excellent free option.

Maybe... but it still does not offer any explanation of why this was pulled from this page and the English version page has been left intact.

Maybe the RagTime folks still believe that they went bankrupt because of the free RagTime 5 version. They do not want to acknowledge that they went bankrupt because the text engine of RagTime 5 was a piece of shit compared to what InDesign 1.5 was able to do (thanks to TeX, of course). RagTime went down for the same reason as Quark and FrameMaker: The text engine of InDesign was superior to all other DTP software at that time.

And they didn't request the removal of the English version? Or is that going to disappear, too? Oh I see, the English version isn't hosted on the internal MG server - 'tho' this page did have external links too (also removed).

Extraordinary, that RagTime GmbH actually requested that this ancient free software be removed. Sad
