Default Examples of PagePlus & Ragtime Solo?

Can anyone point me to sample documents created with either of these applications? I'd like to get an idea of the range of "looks" that can be achieved.

To be honest, the end product will be indistinguishable from one created in any otheer layout program - depending on the skill of the designer. If you ask in the Serif Forums at http://www.serif.com/forums/default.asp you'll get more answers.

We rarely know what software was used to produce any document. As far as “looks” go, that is more a function of design, color and type choices, illustrations, and so on than on the tools used to create the pages.

These programs may have some limitations that their better-known or more “professional” programs do not (or maybe not any important ones). But if you know what you want to produce, understand publishing and design standards, and learn to use the software, you should be able to produce good pages with either of them.

So long as you make PDFs from the files the jobs should be acceptable to most commercial printers as well.

I've attached a PDF of a dummy newsletter made with a PagePlus 11 template.
