PageMaker 7 Available Now

New version offers cross-application support, new PDF tools By Dave Nagel
Adobe today announced the immediate availability of PageMaker 7.0, the latest version of its page layout program. PageMaker 7.0 had not been expected to ship so soon, and it only recently went into the preorder stage.

Adobe is positioning version 7.0 as an "integrated business publishing solution." In addition to its traditional publishing base, the latest release is targeted toward educators, business professionals and small office/home office (SOHO) users.

New features in PageMaker 7.0 include the ability to create tagged Adobe PDF files and merge data. Also, according to Adobe, it includes an enhanced workflow, including improvements in integration with other Adobe products, such as Photoshop and Illustrator. (Version 7.0 supports native Photoshop and Illustrator files.)

Additionally, with version 7.0, PageMaker provides built-in PDF creation tools, enabling users to create tagged Adobe PDF files. With tagged Adobe PDF, text is automatically reflowed to provide better compatibility with a variety of viewing devices, such as PDAs and laptops that have small screens.

PageMaker 7.0 also allows for the reuse of content with support for Word files and updated support for Microsoft Publisher and QuarkXPress.

PageMaker 7.0 is also available as part of the Adobe Publishing Collection, which includes Adobe PageMaker 7.0, Photoshop 6.0, Illustrator 9.0 and Acrobat 5.0.

PageMaker 7.0 is available now to customers in the United States and Canada for $499 for the full product and $79 for upgrades from previous versions. PageMaker 7.0 is available to educators for the estimated street price of $289 for the full product and $79 for upgrades from previous versions. PageMaker 7.0 is planned for release in the following localized language versions in late Summer 2001: Dutch, French, French Canadian, German, Italian, Norwegian, Spanish and Swedish. Brazilian Portuguese, Danish, Finnish and Japanese versions are planned for release in the fall. PageMaker supports Mac OS 8.6 (with Apple Software Font Manager Update version 1.0), 9.1, OS X (Classic) and various flavors of Windows.
