Recently, a major new area of application has emerged for personal computers. This application area isdesktop publishing or DTP. This market is expected to be one of the most rapidlygrowing and lucratrative of all personal computerapplications. It is possiblethataf all personal computer applicationstodate, DTP requiresthe mostsophisticated interconnection of hardware and software. Top rated sofware for DTP like Pagemaker by Aldus and Ventura Publisher by Xerox import files and images that can be created on other machines by software beyond the control of the DTP package. Xerox Ventura Publisher Version 1.1,forexample, can importfromten(10)differenttextformats, nine (9)different line-art formats and three (3) image formats. Users who are willing to conform to one of these acceptable formats can have their software output integrated intothe printed page. Additionally, many DTP systems employ an input scanner for scanning pictures or diagrams etc. Whatwe will examine are some of the systems issues relating to the whole DTP system.
