I do a church newsletter in PageMaker 7.01 while booted into 9.2.2., and have always retyped the handwritten articles I received in PM's Story Editor.
Now, there is a new newsletter editor and she has retyped everything in Word and emailed the file to me. I have it saved as a .doc file in the OS 10.3.9 side of things on this dual-boot G4 MDD. If I can place or import it into PM 7 I won't have to retype everything and that would be a blessing.
The question is this: I know that PM does not play well with Word (5.1a on the 9.2.2 side of things; Office-Word 2004 on the 10.3.9 side of things), and that if Word is fired up before PM is fired up, the view on the screen goes haywire and the pallets are all black. In what format should I save the .doc file so that I can just import it into PM without having to open Word? Can't remember if PM 7 imports rtf or what.
Any help is most appreciated and thanks in advance.
I open all my Word files in text edit and save them as RTF files or even text files then place those. I hate Word files and will not place them. You might have problems importing the new Word files into PM 7 as there will be no filter.
I saved the .doc file as rtf and txt, but PM didn't want to Place either one. I ended up copy/pasting the entire Word file into a new PM file's Story Editor, then copy/pasting each article into my newsletter template. Went pretty quickly.
