I used to be a RagTime user and before Apple Pages came of age. It was one of the best solutions for my brochures, postcards, letters and such.
Since Pages has added so many capabilities, I find that I never use RagTime.... ever.... at all. Perhaps never again. The only reason that I keep it is to open older documents. One day I will delete RagTime all together.

Maybe a good application, but too expensive for what it is. You can buy MS Office with a publication application for much less.
Who would afford for it?

Since Ragtime Solo seems to be discontinued, previous Solo users might want to take a look a Scribus-Aqua, another free page layout product.

This product was pretty good before Apple Pages was introduced. I converted to Pages and never looked back. Ragtime is overpriced for it's feature set. Support is timely but not very good. It may just be a language communications issue. Just get iWork and get on with it!

Not a single reply from the developer.

My Chinese input problem is still there, I tried using an Open sourced IM called "OpenVanilla" but still doesn't work.

I have to come to the consclusion that to the Chinese market, this software is useless.

Chinese input doesn't work in 5.x and now the 6.0 beta 3 doesn't do it either.

In RT 5.x, you cannot type Chinese at all, simply won't accept it.

In RT 6.0 beta 3, you can type chinese after pressing the 'Enter' key, but if you want to select a character from the OSX IM dropdown list with the arrow key, nothing happens, so you cannot select the right character from the IM dropdown menu.

I've emailed Ragtime just now and lets see what they say about this.

Without the input problem solved, I cann use this software at all.

I will post review once this is solved.

Crashes on start-up using Tiger. This is a well-known issue and should be acknowledged by the developer.

Perfect piece of software. MS Office killer...

If you find Office v X too expensive (and why wouldn't you?), this is an excellent alternative. And it imports and exports to and from Word and Excel. This is a final candidate, so the final version will even be better.

Well done - a great application for daily use. A good reason to say good bye to M$ Office
