A Tracking. IT Host Information. Prakash Thapa. Question 1. Notes of Adobe Pagemaker 7. Adobe PageMaker 7. In this program, we can create visiting cards, Wedding cards, news papers, magazines, books, ID cards etc. To Create New Document. To display current publication in Actual Size. To display current publication in Fit in Window. It is used to fill and change the fill color and stroke style, width and color of selected object. It is used to define the page size, page orientation, number of pages, page options, page margins, resolution output of current publication.
It is used to paste the copied object from current publication or different application. It is used to insert or import an object or image from specified application. It is used to define the number of columns and space between the columns of current publication. Whereas text blocks are threaded together somewhat automatically as you flow text, text frames must be threaded together manually. Once text frames are threaded, however, you can more easily redirect the flow of text through them than you can with text blocks.
Threaded frames also differ from threaded text blocks in that, when you delete a threaded frame, the text in the frame moves to the next frame in the thread.
It will display automatic text flow icon. Note:- Text fills the column to the bottom margin and then moves to the top of the next column or the next page.
PageMaker continues flowing text, adding pages as necessary until the entire story is placed. Change Case. It is used to change the case of selected sentences or paragraphs. Drop Cap. PageMaker lets you quickly add a drop cap--a large initial character--to one or more paragraphs at a time. The drop cap's baseline falls one or more lines below the baseline of the first line of a paragraph. To create the drop-cap effect, PageMaker resizes and subscripts the initial character in the paragraph, and shifts the baseline of the subscript character.
To wrap paragraph lines around the character, PageMaker also inserts tabs at the start of each line and line breaks at the end of each line that wraps around the drop-cap character. Line breaks prevent the tab at the start of each line from flowing back to the previous line. Text Wrap. One of the best ways to create visual impact in a publication is to wrap text around graphics. The right-most icon is not available unless you have customized the text wrap, as described later.
You can hold down Shift as you drag handles or segments, to constrain movement to vertical or horizontal. Masking is a way of covering part of an object so that only a portion of it appears through a shape drawn with the rectangle, ellipse, or polygon tool. The masking object can be behind the object being masked. In that case, if the masking object has a fill, the fill will show through the transparent areas of the object being masked.
Note: You cannot mask a frame or use a frame as a masking object. It is used to release or separate the masked object or image. Lock Position. You can lock individual objects in place in order to help preserve the design of your pages through all stages of production.
You can change the attributes of a locked object, provided the change does not affect the object's size or position. For example, you can change a color or fill applied to a locked object, but not its degree of rotation or its skewing angle.
You cannot cut or delete a locked object without unlocking it first, but you can copy a locked object; it will be pasted as an unlocked object. Although the position of a locked text block is fixed, the bottom windowshade handle expands downward or retracts upward if text is added, deleted, or resized. Text continues to flow through locked text objects, moving inline graphics that are in that text object; only the size and baseline shift of an inline graphic are locked.
Align Objects. You can align objects in relation to one another, and then evenly distribute the spaces between the objects. Align or distribute objects based on a common edge or based on the centers of objects. For example, select the align-right icon to move objects horizontally so that their right edges line up with the right edge of the rightmost object. To align objects to a grid, use rulers and guides.
It is used to define or set the frame properties of selected object. Polygon Setting. It is used to change the polygon settings of selected polygon.
Rounded Corners. It is used to change the sides of selected rectangle. To Define New Color. PageMaker supports TWAIN, a cross-platform interface in which you can create a TIFF image using a device such as a scanner, video-capture board, or digital camera attached to your computer and import the image into your publication without leaving PageMaker.
Also, make sure that your scanning software application is inactive, since the next step in the procedure activates it. The name of the button varies with the device; in most cases it is OK, Scan, or Acquire.
If your device requires physical operation a hand scanner, for example , it is ready for you to begin creating the image at this point. Otherwise, the image software acquires the image and saves it to your hard drive. If you are in layout view and do not have an insertion point in a text block, the pointer changes to a loaded TIFF icon when the image is complete.
Otherwise, the image imports as an inline graphic. To size the image as you place it, drag the mouse and then release the mouse button. This section describes how to export graphics for general purposes, but note that PageMaker includes export features designed for special publishing tasks:. However, if you export images individually as described in this section, you have more control over GIF89 and JPEG export options such as color palette the colors included in the image for display purposes and compression quality.
See Preseparating bitmap images for more information on saving in the DCS format. Deselect the option if you want to keep file size to a minimum, if a high-fidelity profile is specified for your separations printer, or if the source image is auto-relinked to the presep-arated image and won't be re-imported elsewhere. For TIFF image. To ensure best PageMaker printing, make sure that the option is not selected. For JPEG image. The higher the image quality, the lower the amount of compression.
The loss of image detail caused by higher compression is permanent; you cannot resave an image with a higher level of image quality to restore the lost detail. Therefore, always preserve the original image.
If you select the Image option for images resized within PageMaker, the images may revert to their original dimensions. See Image compression and color on the Web for details on your choices. If you choose the Image option for images resized within PageMaker, the images may revert to their original dimensions. The text is included along the bottom of the exported image, overlaying the image.
Interlacing improves the speed at which GIF images display and download over the Web. Email This BlogThis! Share to Twitter Share to Facebook. Labels: Learn Computer. Newer Post Older Post Home. Thank you so much for visit. Contents Notes of Adobe Pagemaker 7. Powered by Blogger. Search results.
Adobe Pagemaker 7. It's made for designing things for print, from flyers and posters to reports, and will export creations as PDF files too. Like much of Adobe's output it is a feature rich program, but is quite inaccessible for the beginner. It does feature templates to work from, and that is recommended as a way to learn what you can do with it. It was designed for small businesses and professionals, and while it's adequate as a desktop publisher, the next generation of programs are more suited to today's world. If you were happy using desktop publishing programs, you'll be pleased that Pagemaker is still available.
Page Maker 7.0 Notes
Ported to PCs running Windows 1. A key component that led to PageMaker's success was its native support for Adobe Systems ' PostScript page description language. The program remained a major force in the high-end DTP market through the early s, but new features were slow in coming. By the mids, it faced increasing competition from QuarkXPress on the Mac, and to a lesser degree, Ventura on the PC, and by the end of the decade it was no longer a major force. Quark proposed buying the product and cancelling it, but instead, in Adobe released their "Quark Killer", Adobe InDesign.
