Pagemaker 7.0 Error
  • Yes -- ho ho ho - I'm still using PM....


    I've been using 7.0 for some time with no problem.  Now today, when I
    start the program, I get this error message, and when I hit "continue"
    the program clears and does not start.


    Anyone have a thought as to how to fix the problem?


    Thanks in advance!  Merry Christmas.

    One of the plug-ins may have become corrupted.

    Try moving the Plug-in folder out of the PageMaker folder. If PageMaker
    then runs you can quit PageMaker and put the plug-in folder back, but
    take out all the files. Then slowly put back each plug-in one at a time
    restarting PageMaker until you find the one causing the problem -
    delete that plug-in.

    If that doesn't work you can try re-installing PageMaker and that wil
    replace all the files with fresh versions from the install CD.

    As in many other applications, PageMaker's plug-ins add functions to
    make things easier or automate complicated tasks. PageMaker comes with
    some and you can download more ... but many of them are fairly useless
    to most users.

    PageMaker's plug-ins are found in the Utilities -> Plug-ins menu.

    Some of the perhaps more useful ones to an average user are:

        Drop Cap        Creates a drop cap - a larger letter that
                        spans multiple lines of text

        Change Case     Changes the case (upper case, lower case,
                        etc.) of the selected text.

        Word Counter    Counts the words in the selected text.

        Keyline         Adds a border around the selected object
                        with user defineable style / thickness,
                        colour and distance from the object.

        Build Booklet   Takes a document with a series of A5 pages
                        (for example) and creates a new document
                        with A4 sized spreads - when printed
                        double-sided, sorted and folded / stapled
                        you end up with a booklet with the pages
                        in the same reading order as they were in
                        the A5 sized document.

    Personally I've only ever bothered with the last two of those.

    As well as Plug-ins there are Scripts, but these tend to be even more
    "useless" (or perhaps the word is "specialised for a particular use").
    These are seen and run via a palatte window you can display from Window
    -> Plug-in Palattes -> Show Scripts. Other than a cursory "play", I've
    never wasted time with any of these.

  • Thanks, Harry.  I'll give it a try.   Simple question - what do the
    plug-ins do?

  • Thanks again, Harry.  I'll take a look at the plug-ins -- some look like
    I could use them.


    Too bad the program is not being taught at the night schools anymore.  I
    also have InDesign that I needed for one job a couple of years ago.  I'm
    sure it's "far superior" to Pagemaker, but for my purposes it is an
    over-kill -- way too complicated.  I'll just stick to this one.
