What version of Pagemaker? What happens when you try to open them?
Pagemaker 7 The message says ID can not support the format. Is there a plug-in I need? How do I install a new plug-in?
I just looked at the readable file list and it appears that PM support
has been dropped in CC. That said, if you are a CC subscriber, then you
have access to CS6 as well and that does open PM files.
You can install CS6 by loging into your account at creative.adobe.com
and clicking the download center link. Scroll to InDesign and click it.
Once on the InDesign page scroll down to the "in this version" section
and click the drop down. Select CS6 and you'll be able to download and
BTW, even at that, InDesign will only open PM 6, 6.5 and 7 files. Anything earlier and you're pretty much SOL.
Oh, and if you're expecting anything near perfection, you're likely to be very disappointed.
THanks! I'll try it.
There's a converter for older PM files. I know I used it quite a while ago. As you said, converting to Indesign isn't good at all, but it stille better than nothing.
The converter I mentionned is cross.exe. Works fine, but is limited. Bad structure in PM can result in "no conversion possible", but if it works it's ok.
