How Can I get a Page on my Aldus Pagemaker 3.0

Nov 11, 2011 8:07 AM

I want to install Aldus Pagemaker 3.0 on my Apple Powerbook 1400, so I can use some files that I created in the 1990's on Aldus Pagemaker 3.0.

I have Pagemaker 4.2 on another computer, but it distorts the diagrams from the 3.0 files.

So I purchased Pagemaker 3.0 on eBay. I received 5 disks:  Install Disk, Program Disk, Utilities & APDS, Templates, & Getting Started.


When I installed Aldus Pagemaker 3.0 on my Powerbook 1400 it tells me the installation was successful.

But when I click on the Pagemaker icon a window opens with the logo for  "Aldus Pagemaker, Version 3.0." 

At the top of the screen it shows the dropdowns.

When I click on "open new" it takes me to page setup.

I cannot get a page to appear so I can type on it.

How can I open a page?

    The chances of you finding anyone that can help you with something that’s about 20 years old are not very good.




    I certainly can’t help, but I just wanted you to be aware that PM is totally dead and hasn’t been touched by Adobe for about 10 years. Most users have move to InDesign.

    At a guess finish the page setup.
