Pagemaker to Quark question



  • 1. Autocad drawing embedding on Page Maker document
    Hi everyone! I'm going to create a spare parts catalog with PM 7; the drawings are generated with Autocad 2002 and i'd like to embed the drawings into the PM7 document. Placing the drawings with the "Place" function lead to rasterize the drawings and will generate an heavy PM7 file (100Mb and more). I seen other dox where the autocad files was placed with the OLE object embedding. I did some test but: 1. The autocad drawing is placed with white border and there is no way to cut them away! How can I place exactly what I want? The white border overlap all the object on the PM7 dox and the drawing seem to be exactly the representation of the screen! 2. The placed object seem to be "dark" and the indication and other object placed in master pages are overlapped; this doesn't happen when i place Excel files, embedded as OLE object! Some ideas about? Thanx everyone! Francesco

  • 3. Difficulty upgrading from PM 5.0 to PM 7.0
    I just bought a new computer with Windows XP. To celebrate, I bought the upgrade to PM 7.0, which, I soon discovered from reading the box, will not install unless a version of 4.0 or later is on the computer. So, I tried to install my floppies of PM 5.0 onto the new computer only to get a message saying that the config.sys file could not be found. And the install process stopped. Does XP not include a config.sys file? Is a config.sys file really necessary to install PM 5.0 so I can then upgrade to PM 7.0? Any help on how to surmount this obstacle and proceed with the installation would be much appreciated. - Sid [To reply by e-mail, remove "his" from the e-mail address.]

I used that a few years ago, but given the current price gouging at Quark, I
doubt they are still offering it.

Greetings --

Cross-platform upgrade offers come and go. The place to look for special
offers is on the website of the product you want to purchase - in this case,
you would look at Often, you can get really good deals: PM to
Indesign, for example, or Illustrator to CorelDraw. AFAIK, you don't have to
give up your orignal license to do this.

1.Quark Question - newbie pulling his hair out!

Hi - I know that this is for photoshop but I can't seem to find a NG
specific to Quark Xpress - if anyone can help solve my problem and let
me get some sleep I'd be forever grateful ...

I've designed a leaflet in Quark V4 with 2 pages, page one prints
great but... for some reason if I change the dpi on the printer to
greater than 320 I lose the text on page 2! Not the photos - they
print fine, just the text and only the text on page 2! Page 1 is great
.. photos and text but if I change the dpi page 2 is knackered and
loses it's text!

I'm using an Epson 2100 printer, Photoshop V7 and QX V4.
Any help ... please .... I am at the point of talking to
myself...rescue me from this insanity ...
many thanks, Patrick

2.Opening PageMaker file with something other than Pagemaker

I've got a situation where I need to get some label artwork that I've 
designed in PM7 to a printer that doesn't have any version of PageMaker. 
I wouldn't necessarily expect them to as they print packaging materials.

I'm wondering if there is any other Adobe product will open a PM file? I 
know the printer has Illustrator. Will that work? Am I better off 
sending this to a PDF instead?


3.Pagemaker 7 to Pagemaker 5?

Hi everyone.  I'm having a bit of (well, a huge) problem...
I'm a graphic designer and a client specifically asked me to make her a
newsletter in pagemaker (she has pagemaker and wants to be able to edit
it).  I had never used Pagemaker before, but I was able to manage and
get the newsletter done.
Well, as I went to send her the newsletter today, she tried opening it
and couldn't.  She told me she was using PM5, and I am using PM7.
Is there anyway for me to convert this file to a PM5 file?  This is a
huge setback and I'm almost afraid of the answer to my question.  In
most Adobe products you can export to older versions, but PM7 doesn't
have that option.
Thanks in advance for your help!

4.A few questions on how to do things in Indesign vis-a-vis Pagemaker

5.A few questions on how to do things in Indesign vis-a-vis Pagemaker

Been using Pagemaker since version 1.0, and am now migrating work to 
InDesign 2.0 (haven't got CS/3.0 yet).

Anyhow, there's a few small procedures I'm trying to discover in 
InDesign that have me stuck, and I'm wondering whether anyone here can 
help. (Darn indexes ... it's OK to have a manual, but if you don't know 
what term to look up it makes it rather difficult!)

1. Is there a dialogue box or pallette that will immediately tell you 
what *percentage* an image is placed at in *relation to the original 
image size* (i.e. the size that was saved in Photoshop)? In Pagemaker 
this shows in the master palette at the bottom of the screen.

2. How do you select or move a single object within a group, without 
ungrouping the whole group?

3. Can you set preferences so you can select only objects totally 
encompassed by a marquee, rather than the default, which seems to be 
*any* object the marquee touches?

Any help would be much appreciated.
