iCalamus for Mac offers an easy approach to DTP and is an excellent choice for creating simple posters to complex magazines, scientific works and for book publishing. The tool is the multi-lingual, frame-oriented desktop publishing solution for macOS.

Working with precise measurement units is a breeze. Out of the box, iCalamus offers flexible masking options with many predefined, dynamically changeable frame shapes. Users may build virtual copies for multiple document elements and change them afterwards with just a few mouse clicks.

iCalamus for macOS can import all image and text formats which are supported by OS X. Easily grab text content from large PDF documents for further text processing. Images from digital cameras, scanners or iPhoto libraries can be imported, as well as complete web pages. Print output supports all printers, and the app can optionally output documents in various PDF formats (e.g. PDF-X, encrypted PDF, PDF Fax).

Note: Limited functionality in the unregistered version. Requires 64-bit processor.
