  ® Q. What are the plans for future development of Adobe PageMaker software? A. Widely credited with launching the desktop publishing revolution (together with the Apple Macintosh andAdobe PostScript® printers), Adobe PageMaker has enjoyed a long and venerable product life. When it wasfirst released 20 years ago, in 1985, it transformed the way designers work. Since then, it has introduced many innovative design and layout features, and served millions of design customers worldwide. However, it was firstcreated when coding standards were quite different and its role as a leading publishing tool has now passed toAdobe InDesign CS2, which offers a more extensive design toolset and a modern codebase that can adapt easily and swiftly to the needs of today’s designers. That’s why Adobe no longer plans to develop and release any fea-ture-based versions of Adobe PageMaker, nor do we plan to offer a version of PageMaker with native supportfor Mac OS X. While we continue to sell PageMaker 7.0 and to offer technical support and customer service forit, we encourage you to switch to Adobe InDesign CS2. As a loyal PageMaker customer, you’re entitled to specialpricing for this upgrade, and you’ll find a lot of support for making the transition. Q. Will Adobe continue to have maintenance releases or patches to Adobe PageMaker 7.0? A. At this time, Adobe has no plans to provide maintenance releases or patches for Adobe PageMaker 7.0, norto offer a version that natively supports Mac OS X (you can run PageMaker 7.0 in Classic mode on Mac OS X systems that support it). However, Adobe continues to monitor user experience in case issues should arise. Q. What are my options for upgrading from PageMaker to InDesign CS2? A. We highly recommend upgrading from Adobe PageMaker to Adobe InDesign CS2 PageMaker Upgrade, afull version of InDesign CS2 that’s been specially priced at $349 (U.S.) just for PageMaker users. We expect toship InDesign CS2 PageMaker Upgrade in May 2005 and are accepting pre-orders today on the Adobe Store( www.adobe.com/store ). Purchase the upgrade directly through the online Adobe store or from any AdobeAuthorized Reseller. To install the InDesign CS2 PageMaker Upgrade, you must have a valid serial numberfrom any previous version of PageMaker. Q. What are the main benefits of upgrading to InDesign CS2 over remaining with PageMaker? A. The question some PageMaker users ask is “Why switch when my product works?” The answer is simple:Adobe InDesign CS2 works significantly better. InDesign CS2 combines the best aspects of PageMaker withproductivity-enhancing features that take page design to a new level, so you can work smarter and faster thanever. Designed for the latest technologies, InDesign runs smoothly on Mac OS X, Windows 2000, and WindowsXP systems. InDesign CS2 integrates tightly with the other Adobe products you use every day, including AdobePhotoshop®, Illustrator®, GoLive®, and Acrobat® software, so you can move between these products efficiently to get your work done. It’s packed with innovative features that can handle any page design project from a one-page flyer to a complex book with a detailed index, including multiple undo/redo, flexible table creation, char-acter styles, and state-of-the-art printing controls. It also expands your creative toolkit with editable drop shad-ows, gradients, arrowheads, stroke styles, and more. InDesign CS2 is also a component of Adobe Creative Suite2, the complete design environment for print, Web, and mobile publishing. For details about Adobe CreativeSuite 2, visit www.adobe.com/creativesuite. Q. Are there other reasons to switch from PageMaker to InDesign CS2? A. Adobe InDesign CS2 delivers a number of features that appeal strongly to PageMaker users, including:ã Story Editor Enter, edit, and format text in the Story Editor, an integrated word-processing view thatworks similarly to one in PageMaker and helps you change and copy-fit text efficiently.

Why aren’t you updating it for InDesign CS2? A. Yes, Adobe previously offered PageMaker users a special version of InDesign CS called Adobe InDesignCS PageMaker Edition, also priced at $349 (U.S.), to support making the switch from PageMaker toInDesign. This special version included the following:ã Adobe InDesign CS software with all of the productivity-enhancing layout and design features it offered.ã The Adobe PageMaker Plug-in Pack  , a set of plug-ins that added popular PageMaker features toInDesign CS, such as the ability to open PageMaker 6.0 files, switch shortcuts in InDesign to match thosein PageMaker, basic imposition support, data merge, automated bullets, and more. (See the next questionfor more details about these features.)ã Comprehensive training materials produced specifically to help PageMaker users get to work quickly andexplore InDesign features more deeply.We are not updating this version for InDesign CS2. Instead, we’ve incorporated the “add-on” featuresoffered in the PageMaker Plug-in Pack directly into InDesign CS2. In other words, the basic imposition,data merge, and other features designed to ensure that PageMaker users have all of the functionality they need are now a standard part of InDesign CS2.

Numbered lists update automatically when changes are made.ã Data merge Create customized publications, such as catalogs, direct mail campaigns, business cards, formletters, and mailing labels by merging data from a spreadsheet or database into your InDesign CS2 layouts.ã Position tool Resize and move images and their frames or reposition content in relation to frames usingthe handy Position tool, which works similarly to the Crop tool in PageMaker.ã PageMaker compatible keyboard shortcuts Work at peak efficiency by switching the keyboard shortcutsin InDesign CS2 to match the shortcuts you’ve already learned for PageMaker.ã PageMaker toolbar Enjoy easy access to commonly used commands through a Windows-style toolbarsimilar to ones used in Acrobat and Microsoft Word.
