Make your page layouts with a simple and powerful tool

By Chris Larrage

On Thursday, April 10, 2014

Maybe not one of the most popular Adobe’s programs, but at least useful as all of them. This Adobe PageMaker allows creating page layouts with a professional quality. The last edition was released in 2004, so the software has been discontinued and that is the first impression it gives. It could include some new tools and functions with some updates, but since Adobe has focused on other software like InDesign, this Adobe PageMaker has almost fallen into oblivion. The application includes come interesting features for being software of 10 years ago.

The application allows its users to work with any kind of design and then convert it to PDF. This is great for doing some printing projects, creating some covers or whatever you need. The tools are simple; they do not need any learning process since they are intuitive enough nowadays that any kind of user would have no problem at all using this one. The performance is really good, without delays on the advanced filters thanks to its multithreading technology. I think this application is great for learning how to create simple designs, and that is the main reason is started using this without problems.

Pros

  • Simple way of working and designing
  • Good performance and good tools

Cons

  • Good performance and good tools

A Business-Oriented Application that allows you to create publications with a professional quality

By Reinalei Jamir

Adobe PageMaker is a fine application that started the whole computer publishing. This software allows you to create layouts with an expert quality. With several templates to decide from, you will always have something to get excited about while using this application. The software is also a business-oriented application. Using its new Data Merge feature, you can link to an external source and add data to your publications to generate modified publications. It can also convert your documents into PDF files. I just like the simplicity of the tools here. You do not need to be an expert since the tools are simple and uncomplicated to use.

This program also supports a broad collection of standard and commercial printers which make it sensible to use. I think Adobe PageMaker is good for learning how to create straightforward designs. With the many qualities and compensation of this software, the only flaw for me is the price. I find it a little pricey.

Pros

  • Can convert your documents into PDF files
  • The tools are easy to use Disadvantage

Cons

  • The price is quite expensive

What I like about this software is that I can put any designs I want using this program.

Review

Adobe PageMaker 7.0.2 is the ideal Adobe suite’s program for the layout of pages with professional quality. The program allows us to create every kind of documents with a high-quality for printers or electronic distribution. With it, we will have many possibilities for our creations, not only because of the templates it includes, but also because it is totally integrated with other programs of the suite, such as Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator.

Another important feature of Adobe PageMaker is the possibility to combine texts with data and graphics stored in databases or in spreadsheets. With all this, we will be able to customize our files to the maximum, depending on what we are going to produce. Thanks to the possibility to import and export text of Microsoft Office’s documents, Adobe PageMaker is the suitable program for designing professionals and not so professionals.

And of course, the software allows us to create and visualize files in Adobe’s PDF too. Thanks to this program, we will be able to add information related to the documents and change its security, as well as its compatibility with other versions and programs options. Another tool that we will use is the one that allows us to add watermarks and change the advanced settings of Acrobat Distiller program from Adobe PageMaker.

Apart from what has been already mentioned, we will have the option to include tags related to the accessibility of the document. As we said before, the program is completely integrated with other ones of Adobe suite. Thanks to this fact, we can place other PDF files created with Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator directly in our PageMaker files, in order to be able to work with them without any kind of problem. The way to do this is very simple. This last version of the software allows us to copy the files just by dragging and copying the original Photoshop or Illustrator file directly in Adobe PageMaker. There is also the option of the dialog box called “Place”, with which we can perform the same function, although the first one saves us more time.

But the program does not only have these functions. It includes a new conversion utility which will allow us to open and place documents from other programs with no relation to Adobe suite directly in PageMaker, for instance, QuarkXpress 3.3-4.1. We will also have the possibility to perform the same function with Microsoft programs, such as Microsoft Publisher 95-2000. In addition, we will be able to copy our Microsoft word documents in PageMaker directly for our own compositions layout or to add them to our PDF. It is clear that it is a great advantage to have the files always to our disposal in the format we want.

In addition, Adobe PageMaker also includes other novelties. We can develop any kind of composition depending on our necessities. With PageMaker, the production of completely outlined reports for newspapers, magazines, forms or any other type of documents is simplified thanks to the features previously mentioned, but also thanks to the possibility to add images to the documents.

Apart from that, Adobe PageMaker includes some templates and frames in order to make our layout task easier and to give more quality to our compositions. Everything gets done in a much faster way, since the program also has the option to apply master pages in our creations, to use types of different designs in the same document or to create several versions of it thanks to the possibility toproducelayers to configure it.

The software has a text editor included just in case we do not want to write or format our texts in the composition mode and we prefer to do it directly in the editor. Besides, it has a series of menus, palettes, and keyboard shortcuts to make its handing much easier.

But without a doubt whatsoever, one of the most important features of the program is its final high-quality in the documents. Adobe PageMaker offers support for the main printer brands. This allows us to print our files in almost any kind of device, from the first printer we had at home to the digital printers, and the commercial ones of high-end, for companies, or even for printing houses.

All this is also possible thanks to the great options that it offers in the printing environment PageMaker. We will be able to obtain a high-quality color thanks to its “Zoom Burst” option and the integrated possibility for the color distinction. With it, we can manage the color and, therefore, getprofessional qualityoutputs.

Apart from all these features related to printing, we also find the possibility to use the advanced printing options that Adobe PageMaker has. This way, we will be able to print our creations double-side, and the program includes a series of plugins to keep and create a series of documents in which include our creations.

PHP Nuke's opinion

This is an useful software for almost everybody. First, to professional level, it is great to do any printing related to our company, no matter what our necessities are. Its high-quality of printing will allow us to create exceptional documents thanks to the different options that it presents at the time to manage color, images, and data just before the printing.

We have to highlight that this softwaresped up our work thanks to the different improvements previously mentioned, what allow us to do our compositions in a much faster and efficient way. We can do any kind of document and incorporate data or texts of almost any format. This is a great aid to be able to have all our information at our creations disposal.

Apart from the fact that Adobe PageMaker is completely integrated with the rest of Adobe suite constituents (what allows us to include created elements with Illustrator or Photoshop), it also offers the possibility to import and export data, texts and images from other programs out of Adobe suite. We can include our spreadsheets, databases or documents of the Office pack in order to be able to create our PDF files, always keeping a high-quality. Thanks to this, we will be able to do reports in a much more complete way, adding almost any piece of information to it, with the possibility to edit it. All this, thanks to the multiple options that Adobe PageMaker offers us in the editing environment. In addition, we will be able to edit every document, from the texts, the images or the data that we can include, to the ones obtained from other programs or files.

Saying that Adobe PageMaker has an exceptional quality at professional level, it does not mean that it is exclusively for that end. In general, graphic design, composition and edition of documents programs tend to transgress of an excessive complication in its use and management, something that users with not so close relation with this sector find a little bit difficult when creatingtheir layouts and editions. With Adobe PageMaker this does not happen. The program presents us a very simple interface, really intuitive, what makes our work and the way of achieving it quite easy. Its performing is very simple; with hardly some clicks we can get our compositions in just a few moments. The possibility to drag the images or documents directly to our composition in order to place them in Adobe PageMaker is exceptional.

It is really easy to manage it; moreover, the composition mode allows us to edit everything in a simple and comfortable way. And if we do not get to manage it very well, we always have the option to use the editor mode in the menu to be able to do it from there, as well as the dialog box “Place” with which we can add the images if we do not want to drag them directly.

In addition, the wide variety of templates and frames that the software offers at our disposal makes indicating our compositions much easier. We cannot allege anymore the lack of creativity because, just looking at the templates, we will make our creativity run and we will do it in a simple and without complications way. It also includes a variety of menus, palettes and other complements that facilitate our work and that help us in the development of the documents. Without a doubt, Adobe PageMaker is the editing software for those who do not get on well with this sector and this kind of programs. It will get us out of trouble in a really easy and comfortable way, quickly and efficiently.

Additionally, Adobe PageMaker is a program that we should have if we are designing fans or just pure beginners, or people who need to create a design and do not know how to use other programs well. The great quality and its easy management make this program an ideal one for almost every user.
