Publishing Made Easy with Serif PagePlus
Serif PagePlus Product Summary
If you are looking for a desktop publishing program, you may feel restricted with the number of choices available for personal and home use. There are quite a good number of desktop publishing applications, but they are mostly designed for use by professional graphic designers. For amateurs or those who are just attempting their first desktop projects, the options are restricted to Microsoft's Publisher, which is usually regarded as ideal for small businesses rather than individuals, and Serif PagePlus. Serif’s product is the only product in the market that caters to home users. Now on its 11th version, the application has managed to continue introducing a number of new features.
Serif PagePlus Features
First among these new features that Serif PagePlus is introducing in its 11th release is editing of PDF. Prior versions of PagePlus have already been able to save projects in PDF format, but as for editing them, the task used to be impossible as you may know that files in PDF format cannot be edited. This new feature of PagePlus 11 allows them to be imported for editing as long as the particular file slated for edit is not locked by the file’s creator.
As for PDF support, electronic forms can now be added by PagePlus to websites or e-mail. The manufacturer has a service restricted to registered users that lets them receive information collected from the electronic forms they made. With tables, PagePlus 11 allows cells to have rotated text. Moreover, you may now directly paste cell contents and even sets of cells to PagePlus from Excel.
For photos, you may now click on any photo and the context-sensitive toolbar gives you access to the Image Adjustments dialogue box, which allows you to choose adjustments you want to have for an image, for example scratch and dust removal, blur, shadows and highlights, and put them to its panel.
Serif PagePlus User Interface
The new features of the PagePlus 11 are provided in an overhauled interface which now has a set of tabs that allow docking. The tabs are easier to click on and offer often-used functions like character properties and object alignment.
Serif PagePlus Software Review
For prior users of PagePlus, the new version can be considered an upgrade, as it has new features which offer a wide variety of extensions. The PDF import is a plus for people who never thought editing a PDF file would be possible. The interface that was already fine in the previous versions has been revamped and is now more accessible. With the new templates, as well, you should have an easy time making materials with the Serif PagePlus.
