What is RagTime 3.2?

RagTime is a fully integrated office suite combinded with a DTP like approach. It is referred by the developer as an "Office Publishing Soloution" - hinting to the combination of Office and DTP. In fact was so important and popular during "Apple's lost decade" that an earlier version (called RagTime Classic) was bundled with every Macintosh for a while. Even some of RagTime's features later on made it into MacOS (especially the template system and the splitable windows).

Every kind of content is placed in frames. Contents are Text, Image, Spreadsheet and Chart. You can change the kind of content later on (of course, if you change a Text to be a Spreadsheet, the previous text is lost). Frames are graphical primitives such as boxes or circles.

Beeing a truly native Macintosh Application the software vastly supports AppleScript automation. The commercial releases featured FileMaker connectivity.

In comparison to traditional dtp/layout software RagTime also is:

  • A powerful word processor, imports a lot of text document formats (of that time period)
  • Powerful spreadsheet with a somewhat Excel a-like featurelevel
    (in fact, later Versions are fully compatible with Excel)
  • Charts - based on the spreadsheets you can create charts. Again quite poweful.
  • Simple Databse - intented for mailing purposes (personalized printouts)

While it originates from the "black&white macs" era, RagTime 3.2 fully supports color. Beeing a DTP software at the same time it features CMYK colors as well as cutting edges...

The private version is legally free to use for non commercial purposes.

Motorola 68K

Compatibility notes

It runs on most MacOS Versions from 7.x on 68k and PPC models. It runs well in the Rosetta Emulation environment of MacOS X (PPC only). However lack of a printer might affect its' use inside there ;)  [For OS X or Windows machines you should use 5.6 instead. It opens all RagTime 3 Documents perfectly]

Emulating this? It should run fine under: SheepShaver
