    Can Pagemaker go to Kindle?


      Windows XP Pro.  Pagemaker 7.


      i do the graphic layout for an online mag.  articles, pix, ads, charts, etc.  i incorporate from all different sources and put it in pagemaker 7, then export to pdf for publication.


      the publisher is talking with a guy that works to re-format publications/books to be read on the Kindle and has told her that in order to reformat and offer it for the Kindle reader, it needs to be exported as a word.doc.


      for the life of me, i can't figure out how one would export a desktop publishing document to what is basically an jazzed up typewriter. 


      BigJohnD and Buko, you're always there when i need you.  i bow down and ask your help again.


      and will we have to sacrifice more virgins?

          According to Amazon,

          Built-In PDF Reader: Your Kindle can now display PDF documents natively. Native PDF support allows you to carry and read all of your personal and professional documents on the go.

          I've never produced anything for Kindle, but my guess is:


          a) you may need to know the exact page size for Kindle

          b) your publisher won't have much in the way of editing facilities if you supply him with a ready-to-publish PDF.


          As for publications in Word, well, that's a non-starter IMHO.
