Papyrus Author overview

Papyrus Author provides a powerful word-processor for desktop publishing, with PDF export, integrated spreadsheets, and a relational database using an intuitive user interface for instant searches. You can even use Papyrus from a USB memory stick. This means that you can take your Papyrus (and your data) with you - remove the memory stick, and leave the system 'untouched'.

Note: The downloadable Demo is German version.

Way too complicated with limited help. I tried it for three days to create a character database and input forms plus a link to document - too long and too complicated. Wasted three days of my time and cancelled subscription for the Pro version. I'm going back to Scrivenor.

An english version of this application has been in progress for more than 4 years at least (probably more). Posting a german version without indicating that it is the german version is bad form...

I am of the mind that the English language version of Papyrus is languishing somewhere in the Spree (river that runs through Berlin). Here's what the dev's website states: The English version of award-winning word processor Papyrus Author can be expected Q1/2013 - Q2/2013. And today is just 9 days away from the end of Q2/2013. (hint-hint, nudge-nudge) When I contacted the dev nearly a year ago, he indicated that the timeline then was for the end of 2012 pending a finished translation. Other apps have caught up and passed Papyrus. As Milton once observed, "They also serve who only stand and wait."

I was intrigued by Papyrus and very happy with its options to use PDF as editable documents. But no development seems to be going on here.... Abandonware?

It has to be better than text editor. If I wasn't temporarily out of cash I would buy the program.

Of course it's better than TextEdit, TextEdit is a basic editor that will suffice for things like essays. This is for newsletters, bulletins, and the like, I'm guessing.

Papyrus is much more powerful than Pages for those comparing to iWork. It's not template based. It's a full-fledged word processor and database suite. This is definitely a great example of excellent German Mac software! Papyrus has been around for a very long time and there is a Mac and Windows version (for those who would like to use it or exchange files between platforms). Unfortunately, it's just lesser known.

I wonder what "junk" they left out of their program. It does look great though.

Anyone using Devonthink might be interested to know that this app allows for the creation of editable pdfs, thus reducing the 'Tower of Babel' effect so much a feature of so many of my favorite apps not playing nice together.
