You could go to a computer that has PageMaker. If you have ID or Quark you could see if they can open the file for you. You could go to a print shop and see if they still support Pagemaker files. A local high school or community college might have an old computer with PageMaker on it, but thats pretty doubtful these days.
i was also looking for same info as how can i convert .pmd doc to .pdf ..... it is not going well with page maker export i have used it.
I am having an issue that fits into this title but is a little different than
the original question. When trying to convert a PMD file to PDF (with Acrobat 9 standard installed) if I use the adobe button on the PageMaker toolbar I receive an error but if I do a print and select Adobe PDF as the printer it works. Anyone know why that button doesn't work with Adobe 9? The button did work with version 8.
It has been awhile since Adobe "retired" PageMaker.
It is no longer an Adobe supported application; so Acrobat 9 PDFMaker does not have it listed as a supported application/file format.
The migration path was to InDesign.
As with any application that can be sent to a "printer" via File > Print
If PageMaker is installed, its file can be sent to Adobe Printer for processing by Distiller.
But, again, no PDFMaker.
Thanks CtDave that is what I guessed might be the case but I feel better having that confirmed.
Have a good day.
