I haven't used PageMaker in 10 years, but now in retirement I am putting together a community newsletter with it. I get occasional errors and problems and am wondering if my version that was meant for XP will not work well with Windows 7, and whether the upgrade that is advertised on the Adobe Online site that I go to on the PageMaker help menu is an upgrade of the original upgrade and is compatible with the newer operating systems?
If you’re going to use old software use an old computer. Better yet, check out a new layout app.
InDesign will be overkill for you but scribus is opensource and free. Serif Page Plus is less than $100.
Far better than trying to get PM to work on a new machine.
