Lost 'Fine Print - Replacement?

  Diemmess 10:26 05 Mar 2014

Have used Fine Print occasionally over several years and somehow lost its functionality. I cleared the remains and then failed to find what I thought was a free download to reinstall it. Found in PCA archives

Is this a freebie, limited time trial, or nearly £50 ?

As in the write up - trial.

wiz-king has said it is a Trial (as in the write-up) this usually means it is time limited then needs to be paid for.

or do you mean does anyone know of a free replacement?

sometimes your printer software will do similar, what printer do you have?

Thanks wiz-king, and lotvic. Sorry to overlook wiz-king's comment until I had posted asking for anyone's help.

I had found the clean site the Softonic was stuffed with malware. I have little sympathy with those who want good safe software without paying. Epson SX430 with no pretensions about compiling. Most of my printing is mono-laser For the little use I make of FP, it will not be replaced. Photobox would print a couple of year's prints without equalling the cost of FP !

Unless that is....... there is a good and cheap alternative?

Not sure what you mean by compiling.

Call it what you will, compiling won't do.

I mean let the software accept and place individual files in the best and most economical place on the paper sheet. The operator chooses the number of files per page

I can use say Photopaint to shuffle the files around and print as one sheet of A4. It works but it is slow and finicky.

Sorry but are you talking about photos or documents? W7 photo print will print multiple photos on one page. But a free DTP will do a lot, if not all, of what you want.
