     complete attention. The Buttons #2 plugin will give you access to

     infinitely configurable to create graphics that stand out like a laser 
     with brand new batteries. Plug it in now and it will be filling your

     2. Presentation Wizard 6 Revision 2 (Second Notification)

     Presentation Wizard 6 has been updated. This release:

     - Adds a Clickable Image option to the Button object. Create large 
       clickable pictures that behave like clickable graphics at web pages.
       Clickable Image buttons can change pages, open documents, access
       web sites and do all sorts of other things, just like conventional
       buttons. See the discussion of Button objects in the Manual for

     - Adds controls to the Display Text editor to adjust the character 
       spacing and line spacing for Display Text objects. Squeeze your text
       into tighter spaces when things get crowded.

     - Adds an option to the Header editor to enable a pointing cursor for
       clickable objects in a Presentation Wizard document, these being 
       enabled buttons, check boxes and radio buttons. With the Pointing 
       Cursor option enabled, your moue cursor will change to a pointing
       finger when it passes over a clickable object in a Presentation 
       Wizard document.

     - Fixes several potential memory leaks in the Button object editor.

     - Fixes a bug in the JPEG import library that could crash the 
       application when the JPEG library was confronted with certain 
       pathological data.

     - Addresses a number of minor issues that crept into the initial 
       version 6 release.

     - Addresses a number of GDI and performance issues that software 
       developers never really stop meddling with.      

     - Updates the documentation.
