My friend is using PageMaker Pro and is very used to it and doesn't want to change it or buy something else. He recently bought a 16:9 widescreen monitor but when he uses PageMkaer Pro and tried to compose A4 pages, the pages appear on the screen as square pages rather than A4 rectangles and this makes it very difficult to edit and know how they will be printed.
Is there any way around this? Is this a known problem?
Pagemaker Pro? Which version is that?
They stopped developing pagemaker way over a decade ago. I wouldn't imagine that they had even concieved of a 16:9 monitor back then. But that is an educated guess.
Could also be user error with the new machine/monitor. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen a widescreen high res monitor set to run on 1024x768.
