Transform Ventura to RTF through a point and click interface!
TagWrite is a product of the ZANDAR Corporation. TagWrite RTF to Ventura transformer was originally commissioned by the Corel Corporation of Canada, the owners and publishers of Ventura. The Ventura to RTF EXPORT filter is available only from ZANDAR Corporation. To our knowledge, this is the only Ventura conversion tool available. You can order at email@example.com or see the information at the end of this data sheet.
We support up to Ventura version 7.
Versions up to Ventura 7 will have a .chp directory. There will be a file (usually with a .txt suffix, but it can be .wp or .doc.) That file will contain the text of your document and markup tags that look like this:
@TAGNAME = text, blah, blah, blah
If your data file contains tags like this, then the TagWrite Ventura Transformer can be used.
Transform Ventura to RTF
Contact ZANDAR to discuss projects with larger page counts.
For projects with a relatively small page count, the commercial Ventura Transformer with its Wizard can meet your needs.
Through a point and click Wizard interface you can transform from Ventura format into fully formatted and styled Rich Text Format including fully styled tables.
What is RTF?
"RTF" stands for Rich Text Format. RTF is the document interchange standard established by Microsoft Corporation. All Microsoft document processing products permit files to be saved or imported as RTF. FrameMaker imports RTF.
The Ventura<>RTF Transformer functions with a sophisticated but very simple Wizard. Everything is fully menu driven. It is suitable for projects of smaller and modest size.
You select a Ventura style (.STY) sheet, and the Ventura tagnames are displayed in one column.
You select a Microsoft Word RTF document that contains all the styles and their attributes which you want to equate with the Ventura tagnames. A list of the Microsoft Word style names appear on screen.
You point and click to match the Ventura tagnames with the RTF style names.
When finished, select OK, and the application is built for you--automatically.
You then can select files to run through the application and re-use the application as many times as necessary.
You can build as many transformation applications as necessary.
- Supports Ventura from the first release to the Version 7.
- Tables (with internals table styles) and footnotes supported automatically from Ventura To RTF and from RTF To Ventura. No user setup is required.
- All paragraph level styles. All occurrences of bold, italic, underline, double underline, strikeover, quote marks, superscript, subscript, em\en dashes, hyphens, hidden text, non-breaking space, bullets, date-time, index markers, empty box, filled box.
- Graphic anchors are noted in the output document. Actual graphics must be placed manually.
- Limitations: Equations, bold, italic,underline is supported but in-line font family/size changes, and color changes not supported. Remember that Ventura did not store graphics inside the data file. The data file contains only graphic anchors. The graphics themselves were stored separately. The TagWrite Transformer passes through the graphic anchor information; however, graphics typically need to be manually placed from within the Word environment.
Procedure to Use the Application
The Ventura .STY file contains all the style names in your Ventura document. The TagWriteVentura<>RTF Wizard reads your Ventura .STY file. .You simply point the Wizard to the location of your .STY file. (If you do not have a .STY file for your Ventura documents, then you can build one using any version of Ventura)
You must have a "master" document in Microsoft Word For Windows. This "master" document will contain all of the style names with their attributes. If you already have a Microsoft Word document with the complete list of defined style names, then it will serve as the "master". You simply save it from within Word as Rich Text Format, and select it from within theVentura<>RTF to display the list of Word style names.
Ventura source documents must be available in .TXT (ASCII) format. TheVentura<>RTF transformer cannot process Ventura files saved in a proprietary word processing format.
Skill Level Required
No special skill. You must know the location of your Ventura Chapter files and the location of the RTF file containing the styles you want to transform.
