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.

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.

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.

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.

Whether for personal use or small business, Adobe PageMaker is an ideal software for creating professional-quality publications. You can create original publications or if you prefer, you have the option to use the pre-designed layouts available. With numerous templates to choose from, you’ll never have a dull moment in using this program. From doing simple documents to professional and unique publications, your options are limitless. I mainly use Adobe Pagemaker in creating customized brochures and flyers. I utilize the wide selection of design tools and graphics to personalize my work depending on my preferences. I also add beautiful images using clip-art illustrations or my personal pictures. Brochures and flyers are quite easy to make especially for basic advertising of products or services. On the other hand, you can also create other publications such as mailing labels, booklets, envelopes, newsletters, catalogs, magazines, pamphlets and many more. Its straightforward interface makes Adobe Pagemaker easy to use even for novice users. With this version, you can integrate graphics and text from spreadsheets. The program also supports a wide selection of standard and commercial printers which make it practical to use. With the many features and advantages of this program, the only downside for me is the price. I find it a little expensive.
- Easy to use even for beginners
- Wide selection of templates available
- Maybe a bit pricey for some

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.
- Simple way of working and designing
- Good performance and good tools
