As the world of self-publishing expands, more ease and media is required to the computer. Although at first it was enough to work the text, we saw the need to be able to make later images and graphics and finally, as could not be otherwise, the assembly of the pages, that is, the distribution of texts and images, etc. have been invented programs that help their realization. PageMaker is one of them. Initially it was developed for the Apple Macintosh and Laser Writer printer, but the version created for PCs and the new version 2.0 created for Apple Macintosh is already on the street.
The version created for PCs works in Microsoft's Windows environment. It supports graphics of different applications such as Windows Paint, PC Paint Brush and PC Paint. PageMaker PC offers other additional utilities such as automatic word division, etc. This package allows generating documents of 128 pages.
Version 2.0 PageMaker 2.0, created for Apple Macintosh, features more than 20 new features, many of them created to meet user demands. These include kerning, automatic word division, the possibility of viewing two pages at a time, the possibility of creating 128-page documents and their compatibility with documents created using published text works for compatible PCs.
On the other hand, for Apple Macintosh the sale price of version 2.0 PageMaker is 99.000 pts.
