I have been in touch with Inso twice regarding Adobe File Utilities, the
software Inso purchased from Adobe (part of which, Word for Word, Adobe
purchased with Frame Technologies who originally purchased it from

Inso's first response (dated March 4, 1997):

Their second response (dated July 28, 1997):

... at this time [Inso is] still at a stand still on the software Adobe

The best thing I can say is that they have responded within a reasonable
period of time to my queries.
