PM's on screen previews suck. Sorry, but that's just the way it is.
If you want accurate previews in a pagelayout you'll need to move to
There's about a thousand other reasons to do so, also...not the least of
which is that PM is a dead end application that will never see one
minute of development.
Thanks for the reply. I agree that InDesign would be a much more up to date desktop application, but my 2 or 3 greeting card designs per year don't justify even a $200. replacement/upgrade expense.
I have also used it occasionally to print 2 images on a page as I have many templates saved so that I just have to place the photos.
I spent most of yesterday improvising ways in PhotoShop to produce my cards and by supper time was able to create a card in about 30 minutes. I think PhotoShop will do what I want. What I will miss is Distiller that I use to make Acrobat cards that I e-mail to friends whose addresses I don't have.
kAs an anecdote, many years ago when I took a course on PageMaker (to get a cheap student version paid by my employer) I did my final project on CorelDraw !!
Thanks again & Season's Greetings
Photoshop saves as PDF natively.
Thanks,I forgot about that. I use "contacts" to when I send out "proofs".
I don't want to change this to a PhotoShop topic, but most of my time doing my card on PhotoShop was spent on trying to put text to a "path". As I needed the text to be upside down, I finally succeeded by rotating the entire page.
Warping text also worked for me, but I still didn't succeed in putting text on a custom made path.
