Transferring PPD files
PageMaker uses PostScript Printer Description (PPD) files when printing on a PostScript printer. PPD files, written by printer manufacturers, provide PageMaker with information about your PostScript printer, including a list of printer- resident fonts, paper sizes, optimized screens, and resolution capabilities.

PageMaker 7.0 includes only the following PPD files: General, Color General, and Acrobat Distiller. The best way to ensure that your PPD files are up-to-date is to obtain PPD files from your printer manufacturer. However, you can also use PPD files from previous versions of PageMaker. You must copy the PPD files from the previous version's folder to the following PageMaker 7.0 location:

C:\Program Files\Adobe\PageMaker 7.0\RSRC\

Installing fonts
PageMaker includes a number of fonts that you can add to your system. These fonts are located in two folders: Template Fonts and Extra Fonts. (Extra fonts are not included in the Educational version of PageMaker.) Template fonts are uÜ J Times New Roman Symbol Arial Arial Symbol

MUST READ: Critical Information for creating Adobe PDF files from PageMaker 7.0 for Windows
Before you can export Adobe PDF files from Adobe PageMaker 7.0 software, you must change a default setting in Acrobat® Distiller® 5.0. If you do not make this change, you may get an error message when exporting Adobe PDF files that says: "When you create a PostScript file you have to send the host fonts. Please go to the Acrobat Distiller printer properties, 'Adobe PDF Settings' page and turn OFF the option 'Do not send fonts to Distiller'". When you click OK in the error message dialog box, you will see two additional error messages that state "Saving the PostScript output failed." and "Could not print to the PostScript file". Click OK in both messages and then follow the instructions below to set up PageMaker to export Adobe PDF files.

Intel® Pentium® II processor or later
Microsoft Windows® 98SE, Windows NT® with Service Pack 5 or 6, Windows 2000, or Windows Millennium Edition
32 MB of RAM installed (48 MB of RAM or more recommended)
175 MB of available hard-disk space required for installation; 200 MB or more recommended

Note: If you have a partitioned hard drive and you're installing to a different drive from where Windows system files appear, the drive containing Windows system files must have at least 24 MB of hard-disk space available.

Video card with 800 x 600 resolution and 8- bit/256 colors (24-bit, high-resolution display recommended.
CD-ROM drive

General installation notes
If you're using Windows 2000, Adobe recommends that you log in as a user with administrative privileges before you install PageMaker 7.0. If you do not have administrative privileges, contact your system administrator for assistance.

PageMaker 7.0 uses the Microsoft Windows Installer services. On older systems such as Windows 98, this means that you may be required to reboot before installation proceeds so that the Windows Installer service can be initialized.

Installing Adobe PageMaker
Use the following procedure to install PageMaker from the Adobe PageMaker 7.0 Application CD. You cannot run PageMaker from the CD; you must instsed in the professionally designed templates included in PageMaker.

These font folders and fonts are copied automatically to the following location:

C:\Program Files\Adobe\PageMaker 7.0\Extras\Fonts

Use ATM, ATM Lite, or a different font manager to install the fonts on your system. For more information, see the ATM or system documentation.

Upgrading PANTONE® color libraries
By default, PageMaker 7.0 installs the original PANTONE color libraries. In addition, PageMaker installs a version of the revised PANTONE color libraries in the following location:

C:\Program Files\Adobe\PageMaker 7.0\RSRC\
[language folder]\Color\Additional Color Libraries\New

Although these new libraries include many enhancements, they may create printing workflow problems such as unwanted spot colors in the Colors palette, distinct shifts in color separations, and undesired color changes when printing. However, you can replace the existing PANTONE color libraries with the revised version. For more information, see the PANTONE_Readme.pdf file in the following location:

C:\Program Files\Adobe\PageMaker 7.0\RSRC\
[language folder]\Color\Additional Color Libraries

Upgrading from previous versions of PageMaker
In most cases, you can simply double-click PageMaker files from previous versions of PageMaker to automatically convert the files to PageMaker 7.0. You should also review the following sections to ensure a smooth conversion from previous versions of PageMaker to the newest version.

Using files customized with PageMaker 6.52 or earlier in PageMaker 7.0
We recommend that you retain your previous version of PageMaker until all of your publications are converted to version 7.0. PageMaker 6.6 stored several custom settings, such as tracking values and color libraries, in separate files, which you should also retain if you want to reuse those settings. You will need to move these files to the corresponding location in the PageMaker 7.0 folder structure.

To move custom settings:
Tracking values file, Trakvals.bin (move to PageMaker 7.0\RSRC\[language folder]).
Custom color libraries (.ACF files; move to PageMaker 7.0\RSRC\[language folder]\Color).
New or customized scripts (move to PageMaker 7.0\RSRC\[language folder]\Plugins\Scripts).
Customized PPDs (move to PageMaker 7.0\RSRC\[language folder]\PPD4).
Custom user dictionaries (.UDC files, including the default Aldusn.udc file; move to PageMaker 7.0\RSRC\Linguist\Prx\[language folder]).

Converting earlier PageMaker publications to PageMaker 7.0
You can convert a publication created PageMaker versions 4.0-6.5x simply by opening it in PageMaker 7.0 using the File > Open command.

To open PageMaker 4.0-6.5x publications, use either the File > Open command (to open one file at a time) or the Utilities > Plug-ins > Publication Converter command (to locate and open all or some of the PageMaker 4.0-6.5 publications on your system). With File > Open, PageMaker 4.0- 6.5 files are converted into untitled PageMaker 7.0 publications, and the original publications are preserved. With Utilities > Plug-ins > Publication Converter, you have the option of replacing the earlier files with the converted versions in order to save disk space.

In PageMaker 7.0, you can use File> Open to open a publication from a different platform if the file is saved in PageMaker 6.5 or 7.0 format. To open a PageMaker 5.0 or 6.0 for MacOS in PageMaker 7.0 for Windows, use the Cross- Platform PageMaker Converter.

For more information, see the Adobe PageMaker 7.0 User Guide, or see the WXPlConv.PDF in the following location:

C:\Program Files\Adobe\PageMaker 7.0\Extras\XPlatConv

Program Files\Adobe\PageMaker 7.0\Extras\XPlatConv\XPMConv.exe

Improving performance
Speed and performance are greatly influenced by the amount of available memory, the system configuration, how the PageMaker program was first installed, and the way in which your system uses available RAM. The following sections provide tips for improving performance and working more efficiently in PageMaker.

Memory size
PageMaker stores temporary files on your hard disk during a work session, so it is important to have plenty of space available on your hard disk while working with PageMaker. In addition, for virtual memory purposes for Windows, we recommend you have at least 50 MB of free disk space on your hard disk.

Printing efficiently
Use the correct PPD for your PostScript output device. Items in the PPD that can affect print performance include the amount of virtual memory (VM) available, permanently installed fonts, and color capability. If PageMaker has correct information about these attributes, it can send PostScript to the printer more efficiently. For more information, see "Transferring PPD files".

If color fidelity is not critical when printing proofs, disable color management to improve printing performance.

If printing to a non PostScript printer, check with your printer manufacturer to ensure that you are using the latest version of the printer driver for your device.

Using Adobe Type Manager
When you are using Adobe Type Manager® (ATM), and you plan to use large display sizes, beþsure to increase the size of the ATM font cache to at least 256K (the default) if your system has up to 10 MB of RAM, and to at least 512K ifþyour system has more than 10 MB of RAM. PageMaker 7.0 requires ATM (or ATM Lite) version 4.1 or later.

Use the Application CD to install ATM Lite 4.1 for Windows. ATM is not available for Windows 2000.

Color management performance
The Color Management System Preferences dialogþbox contains an option to embed source profilesþwith your file, which is important when transferring your publication to a computer other than the one on which it was created. If the other computer has the same device profiles installed, you do not need to select this option.

If left selected, this option causes a significant drop in performance. For optimal performance, select this option only when you save a PageMaker file for another computer, and deselect it immediately after.

Setting save options to smaller
In the PageMaker Preferences dialog box (File > Preferences > General), click Smaller to have PageMaker save your publication using the least amount of file space. With this option selected, PageMaker creates a new, compact version of your publication each time you save. Saving a publication takes longer and uses more RAM, but large publications are reduced considerably in size, which improves performance.
