It's been over four years since the last release of Adobe PageMaker, and long-awaited version 7 is finally available! This page layout program now offers loads of new features, including a new simplified workflow with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, and added integration with popular business tools such as Microsoft Word, QuarkXPress, and more. PageMaker 7.0 also features integrated Portable Document Format (PDF) creation tools, as well as new data merge capabilities that use images and text exported from databases — enabling PageMaker 7.0 to assist in direct mail pieces, for example. PageMaker is ideal for educators, business professionals, small office/home office users, and anyone wanting to create professional-quality documents such as brochures, newsletters, flyers, business reports, and more. Adobe PageMaker 7.0 Classroom in a Book is a self-paced learning course in a hands-on workbook. It offers complete training based on real-life projects, organized by chapter. Practical, focused lessons are designed to fit into busy schedules and teach the ins and outs of PageMaker quickly and easily. This cross-platform book contains a CD-ROM with specially created files and images, so readers can work through the lessons and projects at their own pace.

You've added Adobe PageMaker7.0 to your digital studio (or plan to). Now pick up the fastest, easiest, most comprehensive way to master the award-winning page-layout program--Adobe PageMaker 7.0 Classroom in a Book. This bestselling, hands-on workbook and CD package delivers something no other guide can: Adobe's official training series, developed by the company's own experts and tested in its classrooms and labs.

Each chapter is a self-paced lesson, based on real-world design projects. And each project builds on the skills you learn in previous lessons. For example, you may start by creating a single-page, black-and-white flyer, then quickly progress to more challenging projects, such as designing professional-quality letterhead, an eight-page CD booklet, a sports catalog, a Web-based newsletter, and more. Along the way, you'll learn to take advantage of version 7.0's new features, including its seamless integration with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, its ability to merge text and images from database and spreadsheet programs, and the way it now allows you to view and create PDFs, as well as open and edit QuarkXPress documents.
