What Software Do I Need?
As I stated in my intro, I am a music teacher looking to publish a few music books. I am having some issues with organizing (which might be beyond the scope of this group, though I bet there are some here with suggestions that would really help me), and what software do I need to realize my project.
My book has text, graphics, photos, and music. I need to somehow bring this all together.
Here is the appropriate software that I already have:
Text: MS Word 2000, Word Perfect (old version, not sure which), Atlantis Word Processing (rtf format.) I wrote most of my text in Atlantis. It's a shareware program I found online...very good for writers. Atlantis.
Graphics: CorelDraw X4
Photo and Image Editing: Paint Shop Pro
I obviously need something to bring this all together. For now, I've been trying CorelDraw as I can create objects, paste them in, link them, etc. However, I'm thinking this is too limiting. It doesn't always work the way I want.
That's one problem. My other one is that I write on the fly. No, I don't pin down flies and write on them, but rather improvise as I go along. I work best that way. What I want to do is have the ability to write, paste it up to see how it looks, and then do some editing. I really need to SEE it as I work. So whatever I do, I will need the ability to edit. And that will mean I'll have to move all my elements around as I do so, like if I add more text, I'll need more room for it in my overall plan.
Any suggestions on the software and editing?
