For System 6.x - System 7.0 - 7.6
Guides on emulating older applications

You're a commercial printer, service bureau, color trade shop, or publisher. You work with Aldus PageMaker or QuarkXPress files every day and output them to high-resolution PostScript devices. More important, you know that to stay competitive in this business means offering new services as well as quality production. It also means you need Aldus PressWise, the newest generation of production imposition software for the Macintosh.
Designed for the production professional, Aldus PressWise makes imposition easy, accurate, and fast-just what you'd expect electronic imposition to be. Moreover, PressWise accepts the kind of pages you already receive: composite, pre-separated, or OPI-compatible PostScript files from Aldus PageMaker 4.2 and QuarkXPress 3.1, plus independent EPS files created from almost any application.
Whether you're creating simple printer spreads, producing full 32-page signatures, or just optimizing the layout of PostScript pages for a printer, PressWise is the right tool for the job.

The archive contains the installer for the demo only. If you can get the full installer feel free to add it for archival. Two floppy disks in DiskCopy 4.2 format, compressed in pre-5.x stuffit friendly format.

Indeed, nevertheless, i would like to see the non-demo of this version, sometime.

I believe I posted the updated Adobe PressWise 2.5.x with dongle emu. This trial is next to useless.

I ran Adobe 2.5.x on a PowerPC Clone, and could write a 25GB imposed PS file, ready for downloading, in only a few minutes (SCSI 2 LVD - FAST & ULTRA WIDE). Ridiculous overkill for speed, but paid for itself rapidly in time saved.
