    Awesome software, December 26, 2010

    This review is from: Serif PagePlus X5 (DVD-ROM)

    This is really good desk top publishing software, It has great reviews on the internet and I really shopped around with different products before I finally bit the bullet and bought one — this one.

    As I’m on a budget I fought with Scribus first, (an Open Source DTP alternative) but decided the useability was too much of a problem. I didnt have the budget for InDesign, and wasnt interested anyway in paying so much for a set of features I will never even use anyone. I need to get up and runnign fast and not have to pay out for courses and class rooms in books because InDesigns price tag is only justified by feature bloat.

    This has all of the features you need for professional publishing, at a fraction of the price of IDesign, and is great for amateurs as well as professionals. On forums I hear a lot designers say, it’s not the “professional’s choice” – the argument being that professionl print shops expect InDesign files and Indesign integrates well with other Adobe products. Its like saying that Adobe products are better because most peopel use Adboe. Great circular reasoning, but not an argument against this software.

    This product has good tutorials, vidoes, and easy to learn common features. I learned it in one day, and could do things I’d wanted to do for ages but couldnt be bothered to read up on a manual to learn– Its really amazing how quick you can learn it. Its obvious the developers really tested it against users.

    I’m looking to use it for my marketing and communications job, as well as home use, and it has great resources, templates, for professional brochures, posters, creates pdfs, does color schemes, professional printing and is quick to understand, fast, and powerful software.

    for me this is a no contest winner against InDesign. InDesign captures the premium market niche becuase, well, they’re marketing is effective. But the reality is, you have all you need here for professional work, at a fraction of the cost.

    About the only one drawback I’ve seen a reviewer say, is that there isnt a baseline for font that works across columns of text. Doesnt seem to be a handicap for me.

    I’d also like to see more advanced tutorials on their web, but hey, you can get the info you need from any book.

    I’m truly chuffed and pleased with this software.

    Its incomparably great value, why pay so much for software you can get that has all the key features, for a fraction of the price is is even easier to use?

    Sounds like a no brainer, it is. Go buy!

    no owner manual, January 4, 2011

    coyote (Texas) –
    This review is from: Serif PagePlus X5 (DVD-ROM)

    I’ve only started playing with this program… Like the previous reviewer, I looked around a lot before deciding on this product. I write a very small newsletter for a local group and needed something that worked better than the word document that I’d been using previously. I am very certain that this will work great based on my limited use thus far.

    However, unlike previous versions of Serif, this one lacks a user manual. In fact, it seems to be so intentional that in emails from Serif with a little tutorial in it, they advertise to sell me a “resource guide” of 352 pages in length for only $20 – a $20 discount. Price only valid this week of course.

    Do I need a “resource guide” to write the newsletter? I’m not sure yet. I’m struggling with a feature right now but most other parts seem pretty intuitive. The forums on Serif seem friendly and helpful and I will probably go there for assistance on the part that I’m stuck on.

    I guess what irks me is that a user guide should be included with the purchase! I get a huge guide for my cheap cell phone, a calculator, my car and my TV – all of which are far less complicated than this software is. I get that the economy is not wonderful, but cheaping out on a part of what makes the product usable is frustrating. I wouldn’t even mind it if it were a PDF version – so long as I had something written out beyond the not always clear help feature. That they have one for sale at all indicates the possibility of a need for one…

    Best DTP Software, February 3, 2011

    This review is from: Serif PagePlus X5 (DVD-ROM)

    This is probably the best DTP software available for the price. MS Publisher doesn’t even compare. The feature set is quite extensive and it handles larges documents quite well.

    I would recommend PagePlus X5 to anyone. You won’t regret your purchase.
