 ALDUS SHIPS PRESSWISE 1.0
 SEATTLE, May 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Aldus Corp. (NASDAQ: ALDC) today


announced shipment in the United States and Canada of Aldus PressWise 1.0, a professional page-imposition program that will assemble multipage PostScript files from Aldus PageMaker 4.2 and QuarkXPress 3.1, plus independent EPS files from most applications, into imposition forms to be printed, folded and bound in the correct page sequence.
 PressWise's page-handling and page-adjustment tools enable film- strippers and production artists to impose virtually any PageMaker or QuarkXPress file from the desktop. Users can, for example, merge the pages of multiple publications and sort them in a special "Page list" palette. Ready-made and custom imposition templates will automatically accommodate binding options and other parameters, then arrange the pages in the proper order and orientation for printing. Production professionals can also design their own library of templates to meet their imposition requirements. A reduced view of the imposition form provides visual feedback at all times.
 Aldus PressWise is designed for organizations that own or rely on electronic page-layout and imaging devices to create printed documents. Such businesses include commercial printers, service bureaus, in-plant printers and color prepress providers.
 "PressWise is designed to make imposition easy, accurate and fast," said Michael Reiher, PressWise's marketing manager. "We've received tremendous feedback about the product from our beta test sites. Many have reported cost and time savings of up to 40 percent with PressWise."
