Printing and ePublication features
Besides the traditional printing features, Atlantis offers a whole array of advanced printing capabilities.
Documents can be printed with a specific zooming factor even when the document page size and the actual paper format do not match.
Multiple-page documents can be printed on one single sheet of paper.
Documents can be printed in two-sided mode on any printer, even on printers which do not have such built-in capability. This will save paper and print more compact versions of your documents.
You can even create and print various types of booklets, including pocket-size booklets.
Finally, instead of printing your documents, you can save them to the PDF or eBook format and publish them in electronic form.
Losing hours of hard work through computer breakdowns is always most unpleasant. Sometimes, the lost documents cannot even be re-created.
To protect you against such mishaps, Atlantis has a Safeguard feature. Atlantis protects your documents against system failures and accidental shutdowns by creating Safe Copies of them at regular intervals.
In addition to this, Atlantis has a Backup Files feature. When this feature is enabled, Atlantis creates automatic and regular backups of all open documents. Successive versions of each document are saved to a special folder. In this way, you will always be able to go back to earlier versions of any document, for example when you made undesirable changes to a document, and saved it.
The Atlantis Control Board brings together all the word processing tools and commands required to design and manage most document components. It is a very convenient set of tabbed panels, each panel offering a separate overview of the document Headings, Bookmarks, Sections, Styles, and Lists. What's more, each panel has its own dedicated toolbar with all the commands necessary to deal with the corresponding document characteristic.
So you will use the Atlantis Control Board to perform traditional word processing operations on your documents in the most practical way.
But the Atlantis Control Board has other capabilities unheard-of in other word processors. As you might know, lists created in other software often get wrong numbering. This can easily be fixed in Atlantis, using specific commands from the Lists panel of the Control Board. The Atlantis Control Board will also display all the properties of the document sections, including some that are not shown in other word processors. This is not just a gimmick. You will be able to better understand how headers and footers, section breaks, etc, are inter-related and can be managed.
The advanced spellchecker of Atlantis will detect and report any potential misspellings in your documents. Spellchecking can be run either at your request after typing, or, most conveniently, As-You-Type.
Extremely fast and powerful, the Atlantis spellchecker has support for the British and American English dialects, and for a great variety of other languages. It will automatically check hyphenated compounds, abbreviations and collocations, make appropriate suggestions whenever a misspelling or mistype is detected. Do not doubt it. The Atlantis spellchecker will prove to be invaluable in the creation of error-free documents.
The Atlantis AutoCorrect feature will automatically take care of punctuation signs, typical misspellings, common syntax mistakes.
The Overused Words feature will help creative writers avoid repetitions and clichés.
Finally, Atlantis has tools for fully automatic or semi-automatic hyphenation of the document end-of-lines.
Atlantis features a typing assist - Power Type. Working in close cooperation with the Atlantis spellcheckers, Power Type collects statistical information about text that you type, creating an ordered database of the words that you use most. When you start typing the same words again, a small window pops up with a warning sound, displaying a list of words beginning with the same characters. Very often, you will only have to press Enter to insert the suggestion highlighted by Power Type. In other instances, you will need to select the appropriate word from the list first, then press Enter to insert the highlighted word.
If you are a beginner or slow typist, the Atlantis Power Type will help you type documents in less time with less effort. But Power Type will also prove useful to advanced users: Power Type can be configured to suggest not only individual words but entire collocations and phrases. Users can register custom sets of phrases and collocations with Power Type. The Power Type suggestions will be all the more appropriate.
