Presentation Master

Regarding this relatively old program, I have some questions:
(1) How sophisticated are its structural drawing tools?  Can one fit text to
    curves and/or shapes?
(2) Does it support ECS modes like Productivity?  Can it automatically convert
    IFF pics to few colors on a page?
(3) Where can I find this program in the U.S.?  How much?

Finally, though this is not necessarily related to multimedia, are there any
Amiga programs that do what are listed above?

         MS-DOS is the worst text adventure game I have ever played:
             poor vocabulary, weak parser and a boring storyline.

Touchscreens. Companies?

Hi there.

I’m about to dwelve into a project which could benefit immensely from a
touchscreen. I was wondering if any of you have good experiences with
touchscreens, and if so what would you recommend?

Amiga TV

Does anyone know if there’s anything you can get for the Amiga that
allows you to use it as a TV receiver? I saw stuff like WatchIt! for IBM
and something on the Mac which I can’t remember the name of but I was
thinking how great it would be if they had it for the Amiga.

Where in the world is MediaPoint Int.?

Does anyone know whatever happened to the US rep company for MediaPoint?
The registration card addressed to Computer Video Solutions in Akron, PA
came back as ‘return to sender/address unknown’. The parent company is
located in Netherlands (at least I hope it still is), but they were
supposed to run a BBS here in the States with upgrades, XApps etc.
Any info will be very helpful. Thx!

Scala frozen mouse pointer

Has anyone ever encountered a frozen mouse pointer after accidentally
installing dongle with power on?
Well I did, and powering back up hasn’t resolved the problem. I also
tested the mouse on another machine, it works fine.
Anyone ever come across this problem.
Any info would be appreciated.

Multi-format and CD-32

I’m just about to buy a CD-32.  I understand that it will work with existing
"Multiformat" CD’s – is this true, and if so can anyone provide a list of good
multi-format titles? Also, is there an easy way to tell (from a catalogue
description) if a CD is multi-format?

Can My MultiSync Show Composite???

I have an NEC MultiSync II monitor for my Amiga 1200.  It has a 9 pin
plug for input (the same type plug as the Amiga mouse/joystick ports).  
It can scan down to 15 kHz.

So my question is:

Can I use it to view a composite signal.  Is there some sort of adapter I
can use to plug a phono type plug sending the composite signal, into the
9 pin plug.

I know that at first this question may not sound Amiga specific, but I
think the answer would be useful for many Amiga users, since so many
Amigas have the Ability to output a composite signal in one way or
another.  I want to know so I can use my DCTV with this monitor.

Thanks in advance.
