Title: Conversion from GST Pressworks .DTP files?
Post by: Redfox on October 15, 2012, 12:55:32 pm
Hello there,

until now I am using GST's "Pressworks" as DTP program but - for several reasons - want to change to Scribus.

As I have lots of documents created with Pressworks and saved in its own *.DTP file format I would like to know if there is any possibility to convert those Pressworks files into a format that Scribus can read.

Thanks and best regards from Cologne (GER)

Most likely not, unless the Pressworks file format has been published so someone can write a converter for it.

But my guess is that the Pressworks file format is proprietary.

the biggest problem will probably be, that pressworks does not seem to exist anymore...
