Atari Protext
« on: 09:07, 18 September 18 »
The clearing of the "Amstrad Cupboard From Hell" continues. This time a non CPC item.
Atari Protext 6.6 - 4 disks (Program disk, Dictionary disk, Thesaurus disc and Printer driver disk) - these are the original Arnor disks. No manuals. Might be working might not. Free to any member that could use them and has an Atari.

Cheers,

Peter

Please, please, please archive 'em properly: put the images up on archive.org or similar.
Protext was a lovely wordprocessor, and deserves to be available. I even know of a few (very few) people who use MS-DOS Protext in Dosbox to write articles.

I still would like to give it a try, you never know if it’s another version, or if there’s been an unnoticed error on previous dumps.

Hi!


I had to register just to post in this thread.


I have searched for an Atari ST version of Protext 6.6 for years. I'd be eternally grateful if I could have the images and I would even buy the disks if they were readable.

Hi Josh!


I’ll send you the disks images and pictures tonight.


The disks are actually in great condition and managed to read them without errors.


Cheers,
Rob

Protext is nice, but what was that WYSIWYT French text editor from the 90s? The one that came in several disks? I toyed with it at some point and it was very impressive...

Ah yes, I think that was the one. A seriously impressive app to be honest. Strange there's no more info online - couldn't find a vid to insert to this post, for instance!
