Charlotte, NC, United States (October 1, 1997) - Visual Components Inc has stopped marketing and reselling VisualWriter. Today, DBS Germany, the manufacturer of the product, took over technical support, updates, sales and maintenance.

Visual Components Inc had changed the original name of the product, TX Text Control to VisualWriter so that the product name would fit in better with their product range. The original product, TX Text Control, is available now in version 6.0 from DBS or The Imaging Source.
