Adobe PageMaker 7 box

Adobe PageMaker 7.0

Adobe PageMaker (formerly Aldus PageMaker) is a desktop publishing application that was first developed by Aldus Corporation.

Product historyEdit

On August 31, 1994, Aldus was acquired by Adobe Systems, which released its own first version as Adobe PageMaker 6 in 1995. PageMaker 6.5 was announced at Seyboard SF '96 and shipped at the end of the year.[1]

Adobe PageMaker 7 was last major version. Adobe introduced Adobe InDesign as a modern replacement for desktop publishing. A "PageMaker Edition" of InDesign CS was released in January 2004 with additional features and plug-ins to help users migrate. Adobe stopped selling PageMaker 7 at the end of March 2006, with Adobe InDesign CS2 (which had the migration features built-in) as an alternative.
