Winet 6.10 Released

This upgrade is free to all users on maintenance and those who bought Winet less than 12 months ago.

Merge printing is a total new concept in formatting legacy printing! This is the easiest method to specify the full formatting of a report using a PC word processor. It works similar to “mail merge” where a template document is created with fields.

A merge file is a template that can be created in any wysiwyg interactive word processor supporting the Rich Text Format (like MS Word). The data to be printed will replace the field indicators in the document. The merge template document may include graphics, forms and additional stationary data.
