The Office Publisher 1.x

The Office Publisher is a powerful high-end, yet friendly, WYSIWYG desktop publishing program created by the large Canadian publishing company Print Three and sold under its spin-off, Laser Friendly. It was originally targeted at Print Three customers so they could create content on their own computers and then submit large publishing print jobs.

Unlike other publishing tools of the time it featured a form designer and a built in bitmap editor. It is built on top of the Digital Research GEM GUI environment, which enables it to automatically use any display, pointing, or printing device supported by GEM. It includes a GEM runtime so no additional software purchase is necessary.

It supports styles, forms, tables, libraries, long documents, built in help, word processor document import, and graphics image import.
