G4 Mac wanting to upgrade Pagemaker????


Established Member
Hi have a G4 Tower Mac running 9.2 AND OSX 10.2.

Have files and programme Pagemaker 7 which are invaluable to me but I have to open 9.2 to use this.
I want to use OSX Tiger etc but don't see the point as I still need my historical Pagemaker files.
Unfortunately Adobe seem to have ditched loyal Pagemaker users and have no upgrade path to OSX and upwards.
It is a nuisance going back the way everytime I HAVE to use Pagemaker......anyone any sensible solution?

I want to go to an IMac but again I am prevented by the fact I can't use my old -required - historical Pagemaker files!:lesson::lesson::thumbsdow:thumbsdow

I have Pagemaker 6.0 running on OS 9.2 on my G4 Mac Mini 1.42 (PPC).

If you download the trial version of InDesign (as I did), you will discover that there is no problem in opening your legacy Pagemaker files.

You can upgrade for around £165 direct from Adobe.
