PowerMaker is to become a fully developed Text/Word Processor and Presentation/Slide Show Manager. The name is derived from two commercial programs it tries to resemble as good as possible:
- PowerPoint 98 by Microsoft, and
- FrameMaker 4 by Frame Technology/Adobe
The basic concept to both is that a document consists of pages with content and content consists of graphical objects and text containers with paragraph formatting. The layout of pages is derived from layout page definitions (master pages). So if you know how to operate either one, you should repidly feel familiar.
