The Complete Office Package
No computer is properly complete without its own Office package. Office
assists in the compilation of texts of all kinds, in the completion of
spreadsheet calculations and in the preparation of expressive
presentations. In these tasks, Microsoft Office is the generally
accepted standard, as its formats are established and the functions it
offers are continually required. However: many users are unable to
afford the Office suite.
This is where the Ashampoo Office 2008
steps in. The program only occupies a limited amount of storage space
on the hard drive, is very stable and still offers all of those Office
functions which genuinely need to be used in private or in business
environments. A fair price that all users can afford without problem
also ensures that the Ashampoo Office 2008 is rapidly winning new
friends. Its simple menu prompting and ease of use allows users of
other Office solutions a problem-free switchover.
It goes without
saying that the most important thing is the fact that reading and
writing in the original Word, Excel and PowerPoint files without losses
of content or in terms of formatting presents no problem for the
Ashampoo Office 2008. That means that every user of the Ashampoo Office
is able to open, modify and then save a Word file in exactly the same
way as if the work had been done in Word itself.
2008 is supplied with the word processing tool Ashampoo TextMaker, the
spreadsheet program Ashampoo PlanMaker and – brand new in the current
version – the presentations software Ashampoo Presentations.
Ashampoo TextMaker, PlanMaker and Presentations
As a word processing program, Ashampoo TextMaker is able to cope both
with long and short texts. The program is able to lay out a table of
contents, an index and tables, can import graphics and is also able to
place 3D texts. Thanks to the integrated addresses database, drafting
serial letters presents no problem. Web pages are also easy to create
using the program. The program has also won considerable praise thanks
to its very high quality spell check system.
PlanMaker, number games of all kind no longer present any problems. The
spreadsheets offer countless formulae which are a great help with
automatic calculations. Its implementation of highlighted columns of
figures in expressive 2D and 3D diagrams is particularly effective.
Ashampoo Presentations is a new product. The presentations program
brings images and texts together, and using the pre-sets, can easily
generate a visual presentation which can then be played back on the PC
monitor and can also easily be exported or printed out.
Ashampoo Office 2008: Now with PDF Export and Mailing Assistant
Lots of things have changed in the new Ashampoo Office 2008. And it
isn’t just down to the presentation program Ashampoo Presentations,
which is a completely new addition to Office.
A particular wish
of users was PDF export, something which is now available in all three
programs. This means exporting content so that users can open it and
print it out is no longer a problem, as long as s/he has installed the
free Adobe Reader on their computer.
The object-based exchange of
data between the three Office applications is also brand new. This
means PlanMaker tables can be easily integrated into an Ashampoo
TextMaker document, for instance. A single mouse click on the object is
enough at any time to be able to work on it in the original
One great extra is the new mailing assistant which
is immediately available in Ashampoo TextMaker 2008. This helps in the
printing of envelopes and spares its owner the annoying sizing and
positioning of address fields.
Ashampoo Office 2008: Take it with you on a USB stick
Ashampoo Office 2008 has one decisive advantage over other office
suites. You can install it on a USB stick and take it with you wherever
you go. If you want to use another computer in the office, your laptop
at home, the PC in the hotel lobby or the Internet cafe terminal, it's
enough to just plug in the USB stick and continue your office work
seamlessly. Installation unnecessary.
Many users are already
using this feature to always carry their most important documents and
the work environment they are used to with them.
