Howard Metcalfe has released a new version of Personal Ancestry Writer II, aka PAWriter, the free genealogy program for Macintosh users. Version 100 includes the following changes:
The appearance of the PAWriter application icon was improved.
The FrameMaker MML report features have been deleted. The Write MML menu item in the File menu and all its submenu items have been removed. FrameMaker for the Mac is an MacOS 9 application and has not been supported by Adobe Systems Incorporated for many years.
Most of the desktop publishing capabilities of FrameMaker now appear in Nisus Writer Pro (see the Nisus website at http://nisus.com/), and in some cases the capabilites in Nisus Writer Pro exceed those in FrameMaker. RTF files generated by PAWriter using the Write RTF menu item in the File menu are opened in Nisus Writer Pro by default (as well as being readable by other Mac word processors such as Microsoft Word, Pages, TextEdit, Tex-Edit, AppleWorks and Quick Look).
A bug in version 99 dated 1 July 2011 which affected the wallet window was fixed by removing the Close Wallet button. A wallet is still closed by clicking on the red close button in the upper left corner of the wallet window, by choosing Close Wallet from the Pictures menu or by pressing command-W.
PAWriter was compiled using Real Studio 2011 Release 2 — technical change only.
