RE: MAC and PageMaker
I only use PageMaker for printing purposes and don't use
it a great deal. So, I couldn't attest to how easy it is
to learn. I can tell you that if you have a Mac PowerPC (usually any mac made after 96') you should not have a
problem working cross-platform. I currently use a Mac G4 as well as a Dell Dimension at work. I have never had a platform related problem when moving between the two. There are two rules that you will need to follow. 1. Make sure that you are using the same version of the
application on both platforms.
2. Always remember that the Mac can read the PC format but
the PC can't read the Mac. So always use PC formatted disks
no matter what computer you are on, and always remember to
include an extension to the file name when you are on a
I would add that you need to use the same fonts from the same company. Additionally, if the the documents are long, you are going to hate PageMaker. It is intended for layout work, not long structured documents.
All elements in PageMaker are intended to be messed with and bit fiddled, ergo it ideal for fussy layout work.
