Customer Reviews

I want to like it.

A big clue should have been their website, which is neither up-to-date nor detail-oriented (lots of errors, dead links, expired promotions. Indicating that quality and a thorough approach is not a priority...)

This app is not nearly as detailed as the original Pages and is not for the poweruser of current Pages.. There are careless typos in the menus. Adjustments in spacing etc. use sliders, with no option of setting a precise number. Templates open in European A4 format and clicking “Letter” or Legal” does not automatically reconfigure the columns, artwork etc.

It is less intuitive and more reliant on experimentation than Pages. (Example: open the menu of all pages, click the page you want to delete and click the “minus” sign - a warning message is displayed: “this choice is irrevocable”. WRONG CHOICE - the page that is deleted is the current page in the work area. Really!?) When the program crashes, the recovery is not current and requires lots of re-do. Moral: Save as you go (Apple has thoroughly spoiled me by making this nearly obsolete…)

I regret not simply purchasing a $$ newsletter template pack for Pages. I have plenty of my own images/artwork so the royalty-free clipart isn’t a draw for me, either.

Not the same as MS Publisher, but it’s a nice little program

I tried Publisher Lite and thought it might be what I needed to do newsletters. I upgraded to Publisher Plus and was very frustrated. It doesn’t work the same way as either of these apps, and I decided it was over rated. I didn’t do much with it for about a year, just postcards and flyers. However, after a extremely frustrating experience creating a newsletter in MS Word, I decided to give it another shot. Publisher Plus DOES do what is necessary to make a nice looking newsletter, once I figured out how to get multiple columns and add/remove pages. Its pretty flexible, particularly for such an inexpensive program.

Excellent inexpensive program

After a long search, I am thankful to have finally found an inexpensive and powerful desktop publishing and graphics layout program for my Mac. Certainly, you could spend a few hundred bucks for a more powerful program, but this one certainly meets my needs for flyers, brochures, business cards, signs, posters, etc. Powerful and easy to use. Whew!
