PageMaker 6.0 Announced

Send Article to a Friend

PageMaker 6.0 Announced -- Adobe has announced PageMaker 6.0, a long-awaited update to its widely-used publishing application recently acquired in its purchase of Aldus. In addition to several new features targeted at its primary competitor, QuarkXPress, PageMaker 6.0 features the ability to export documents in Acrobat PDF format (with smart hyperlinks joining stories) and sets hearts aflutter amongst Web weenies everywhere with the ability to export HTML. But before you start saving your money, consider a few other added features: PageMaker 6.0 requires OLE, needs 20-30 MB of hard disk space for installation, has a RAM requirement of 8-10 MB, and though it will run on a 68030-based machine, it wants a 68040-based machine or Power Macintosh. PageMaker 6.0 should be available shortly at a suggested retail price of $895, and registered owners will be able to upgrade for $149. A CD-ROM version of the program will also be available, and it will include a version of Adobe's Type On Call. [GD]
