As a long-time user of Interleaf 5.something (four painful Interleaf years -
like a lifetime of using Frame) I can second what Cathy writes.
Besides, even if there was Interleaf technical support, Interleaf is so
complicated that you would never be able to formulate a question.
You would have to say: "Every time I select the IXmokDual3 filter I get the
message: Attention 53834623 in Ixmok to Leaf - Cancel?
The Interleaf tech would say: What?
Interleaf may not have any tech support, but they have a huge sales force!
Have a great weekend, OK?
