Sinclair QL Front Page by GAP Software Sinclair QL Front Page by GAP Software

Front Page was the very first DTP package for the QL.

Running in just 128K on a standard machine it got around memory restrictions by storing different sections of the page on microdrive and swapping these according to which part the user was working on. This made operation slow and somewhat hazardous!

Front Page handled standard text and basic graphics and including a routine to print out on Epson compatibles. The program was written in SuperBasic and compiled with QLiberator.

Enhanced versions followed for use with expanded memory culminating in 1988 with Front Page Extra 3. By this time there was competition from other software houses including DP and Sector Software and GAP no longer had the market to itself.
