This paper outlines the phototypesetting systems which are able to output complete pages: both kan-ji text and graphics. Full pagenation systems are used in many applications: news papers, parts lists, reference books for students, etc.. But it is nessesary for the systems to improve cost-effectiveness to be used in all applications instead of paste-up systems. “Batch method” is used to compose and layout much volume of text and graphics for books, parts lists, etc., and “Interactive method” is used to make up complex commercial applications. Both CRT and Laser setters are now used to output text and graphics, but laser setters may be mainly used in near future.
