I edit a small church magazine, using MS Publisher. One of our advertisers has sent me a new advert (as a PDF) it's designed in Quark. Publisher doesn't recognise it/can't handle it. Advice , please. Is the simplest solution to ask him to re-send NOT as a pdf? But would Publisher be able to deal with it then?
Thanks for that Woolwell. Unfortunately I'm still using Publisher 2000 - I should have said - but I'll see if it will perform in same way. The only editing needed will be the correction of a spelling , and re-sizing, but Publisher will cope with the re-sizing if I can get it to recognise the thing in the first place.
Publisher 2000 is of course quite an old program now. It may be time to upgrade or perhaps move to Serif PagePlus which I find is better and handles pdf quite well. You can get some of the older versions of PagePlus quite reasonably.
thanks Woolwell ; point taken; it's just laziness on my part really: for the sake of two A3 pages once a month (and a job that I might be able to hand over to someone else later this year).......... But you're right! Maybe I will bite the bullet - and I have access to a copy of PagePlus. Meanwhile i've sent a mesage to the advertiser explaining the situation and I'm waiting for him to respond.
