Lotus announced Word Pro as the successor to Ami Pro. Word Pro is
scheduled to ship sometime in the summer of 1995. Details about
its exact capabilities are still very sketchy, so I have no way of
knowing how it will handle typographic symbols.
I would expect many Ami Pro users to stick with what they have
rather than switching right over to Word Pro, particularly if Word
Pro turns out to be drastically different from Ami Pro. But for
those who are unsure of which way they will go, I offer this
- If Word Pro provides capabilities equivalent to those of
TYPOMARKS and you let me know within 3 months of its ship date
that you have switched to Word Pro, I will refund the license fee
you paid for TYPOMARKS.
- If Word Pro does not provide equivalent capabilities, and
unless technically infeasible, I will create a Word Pro
capability equivalent to that of TYPOMARKS, distribute it as
shareware, and waive the license fee for anybody who has already
licensed the equivalent TYPOMARKS macro(s).
