Swift Publisher adds 20 new designs and a master pages option as part of an update released by BeLight Software. Swift Publisher 2.0, which also adds support for tables and improved image-handling, is a free update for existing users of the page layout application for designing flyers, newsletters, and brochures.
The master pages feature lets Swift Publisher users create a common background for multiple pages. The feature can be used for tasks page numbering, creating headers, and adding background pictures.
Other additions in Swift Publisher 2.0 include an imposition option in the print dialog for automatically arranging brochure pages, a text-to-curve feature for transforming a document into a vector image, a preview panel for pages, and integration with Art Text. That’s a BeLight application for creating textual graphics, logos, icons, and buttons.
Swift Publisher 2.0 works on both PowerPC and Intel-based Macs running OS X 10.3 or later. Pricing starts at $44.95 for new users.
