Plus Publishers Assistant
Publisher's Assistant serves as a reliable tool for saving Win*Star
chart wheels in a variety of graphic file formats. Wheels can be
easily re-sized for cut & paste or file insertion using your favourite
word processor or publishing program. Publisher's Assistant
can be operated without Win*Star. Either way, it accesses your Current
Charts files, and their associated chart forms.
Publisher's Assistant consists of a simple menu which displays
the highlighted chart wheel in its standard size. You type in the
new desired size for an existing wheel and it re-sizes the wheel
accordingly. For example, perhaps you want to include a chart wheel
in an article you're writing. A full-sized 8"x 8" wheel
(one that would fill an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper) would be way
too large; you'd like one half the size. Just type 4" in the
menu's "width" field, click the "adjust to width"
feature, and the wheel will automatically reduce to a 4" square
wheel -- perfect for insertion on a magazine page. See for yourself!
Wheel Options are included for saving the Win*Star chart wheels
in 18 different graphic formats, with shortcut buttons for .BMP
and .Meta(file) formats. Entire chart wheels can also be placed
on your clipboard for instant copy & paste transfer. It couldn't
You can use this simple program to create resized charts for use
in desktop publishing.
This wheel is sized down from 8" to 5". In this demo
screen representation you're seeing a .gif file, which can't appear
as clear as the .metafile which would actually be used for printing.
The program offers a one-click copy of any re-sized image in both
.bmp and .metafile formats.
