Product history[]

Aldus Type Twister for Windows

Type Twister was originally developed for Aldus by the Pixellite Group, the developers of Instant Artist and The Print Shop. After Aldus merged into Adobe in August 1994,[1] Adobe Type Twister replaced Adobe TypeAlign, but it too was eventually discontinued as similar features were integrated into Adobe Illustrator.
