5.0 out of 5 stars It's Not InDesign--and it Doesn't Have to Be February 23, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Disc
Let's get the obvious part out of the way first--

PagePlus X6 by Serif is not Adobe InDesign. But that doesn't change the fact that it's an outstanding piece of software, filled with enough features for even demanding print publication needs, and represents an outstanding value at its price point.

If you're an "Adobe-phile," who absolutely expects total interoperability between your print, photo, and digital graphic assets, then this isn't the program you're looking for. Move along.

But if you're looking for a robust page layout and desktop publishing program, without having to spend $1500+, PagePlus X6 is absolutely the way to go. Without question this is the best InDesign "replacement" you'll find on the market.

As a side note, after having done some research into design "trio" packages--document design, vector art, raster imaging and photo manipulation--I've come to the conclusion that the most indispensable Adobe program is still Photoshop. Everything else--Illustrator, InDesign, Dreamweaver, Premiere--has a less expensive analogue by a competing vendor, in some cases that's BETTER than the Adobe offering (CorelDraw and Vegas Video Pro, I'm looking at you).

However, I don't want this review to devolve into what PagePlus X6 is NOT, because that would be a disservice to just how robust this program is. But when it comes to the digital design market, all comparisons start and end with Adobe.

First of all, PagePlus incorporates all of the features a trained professional would expect in a page layout / document design / desktop publishing program--master pages, text flowing between different page areas, text and object styles, and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic for building books and book covers April 6, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Disc
I'm a professional illustrator and graphics artist who regularly works on books for large presses as well as self-publishing authors. PagePlus is an important part of my tool kit. It makes it easy to create simple -- or complex -- layouts and delivers a professional, quality PDF that publishers can use for printing a cover or the text of a book or other publication. (Since PDFs work across the Mac and PC platforms, the PDF has become the normal file delivered to a press that's printing coves and text.)

On my PC the software is very stable (which is not always true with graphics programs) and the various layout tools intuitive and easy to use by graphics programs standards (meaning there is a learning curve for beginners with this sort of software, but not too steep).

I've never run into a layout task PagePlus couldn't handle, and have found it does a few things InDesign can't do, like open a PDF so you can work with it (so for the reviewer who wrote that PagePlus isn't InDesign: No, and thank goodness).

Book text needs to be broken down by chapter and then put together by the BookPlus module in the program which stitches everything together into a single PDF, putting in the right page numbers in the process. This is especially important if you have pictures with your text, and also doesn't tax your computer memory and slow the layout work down.

Creating eBooks is a little tricky with X6, but once you get the hand of putting everything "inline" with the text, it works well at this task (a little online searching tells you how to do this -- currently the help file isn't quite right in the steps needed to get the output right).

Don't let the low price on this software fool you -- it's capable of professional work and even doing a few things that some higher priced software can not do.

4.0 out of 5 stars Substancial Improvement over Version 5 February 27, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Disc
Version 6 is a much improved page layout package over version 4. Again my only complaint with Serif is their constant new versions instead of upgrading existing software. However with the price point it doesn't seem unreasonable, annoying but not unreasonable. I use this software to layout my books and it does a very good job. I do recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars So far, wonderful! September 16, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
In an earlier review, (now deleted), I complained about delivery problems which have since been resolved. Now I am happy to report that I have the product successfully installed, and have begun using it in earnest. In brief, I am quite happy with this software, even impressed!

Prior to obtaining Serif PagePlus X6, I had used Microsoft Publisher 97, learned Adobe InDesign CS and CS2 and played with Scribus 1.4.1. Performance and features improved with time. Serif PPX6 is not exception to that rule. Since most people will naturally compare it with industry standard InDesign, I will contrast PPX6 only with Adobe's previous offering (IDCS).

The most obvious difference between PP and ID is the workspace and the user interface. Whereas InDesign, and perhaps most desktop publishers, use picas and points as the primary units of measure, PagePlus seems just as comfortable with inches or centimeters that non-specialists are more comfortable with. The tools palette is somewhat different, as are the other controls and keyboard shortcuts. While there is nothing awkward about PP, learning new ways of performing the same or similar task requires something of a learning curve. Thankfully, Serif implemented a well designed help system, and provides training and tutorial videos to assist new users adjust to the myriad of tools available in this package. Unfortunately, the videos are available only online, and aren't available if you don't have an Internet connection.

My first project is a calendar booklet with which to display and promote my artwork. PagePlus has an interactive calendar wizard/tool; InDesign doesn't even have a script for it. There is some confusion about how to load graphics into the Assets Manager.
