If I could give PagePlus X5 10 stars, I would.

I was using Quark XPress to lay out a book and pulling my hair out, even though Iv'e used it before. I searched the online help, books, in program help and could not find answers -- to a simple thing of how do you put in a page break. They have no such words in their index.

After that frustration, I looked to see if I could find another page layout program. I briefly peeked at InDesign, but honestly had no hopes for it. And, anyway, it's something like $700 (like Quark).

After about 2 weeks of on and off looking, I accidentally found Serif and PagePlus, which from their website is selling for $99. Once I downloaded it and started using it, it took me an entire week to get over the insanity I had worked up over Quark and having no other options and the incredible relief that here was a program that could do what Quark does at fraction of the price and: EASILY!!! It had page breaks! among all sorts of other things.

There's lots of things I love about it and I'll give a list, but will have to come back and add to it as I use it more and learn more.

First of all, GOD! it opens in a fraction of the time that Quark did!!! I can actually press on it and it opens. With Quark, I'd go away and make breakfast. Geeeees.

It has a very nice, user-friendly interface--all the tools are right out, easy to get to, and big enough so you don't have to search hard to find something. Everything is clear enough so, even if you know nothing about the program, you can start working with it.

So here goes a rather unorganized list . . .

This is really good desk top publishing software, It has great reviews on the internet and I really shopped around with different products before I finally bit the bullet and bought one -- this one.

As I'm on a budget I fought with Scribus first, (an Open Source DTP alternative) but decided the useability was too much of a problem. I didnt have the budget for InDesign, and wasnt interested anyway in paying so much for a set of features I will never even use anyone. I need to get up and runnign fast and not have to pay out for courses and class rooms in books because InDesigns price tag is only justified by feature bloat.

This has all of the features you need for professional publishing, at a fraction of the price of IDesign, and is great for amateurs as well as professionals. On forums I hear a lot designers say, it's not the "professional's choice" - the argument being that professionl print shops expect InDesign files and Indesign integrates well with other Adobe products. Its like saying that Adobe products are better because most peopel use Adboe. Great circular reasoning, but not an argument against this software.

This product has good tutorials, vidoes, and easy to learn common features. I learned it in one day, and could do things I'd wanted to do for ages but couldnt be bothered to read up on a manual to learn-- Its really amazing how quick you can learn it. Its obvious the developers really tested it against users.

I'm looking to use it for my marketing and communications job, as well as home use, and it has great resources, templates, for professional brochures, posters, creates pdfs, does color schemes, professional printing and is quick to understand, fast, and powerful software.

for me this is a no contest winner against InDesign.

We all know that Adobe CS is the gold standard when it comes to graphic design, but for those of us who need easy access to superior design software for less than an arm and a leg PagePlus X5 is it! I work in advertising/marketing, and so far this program has delivered on all counts.

It's been a month since I made the purchase and I've already been able to create dozens of flyers, logos, and publications using PagePlus. It's almost painful to think that I was getting by with MS Publisher for almost a year, now that I have this software. I am still discovering new functions, and while some sort of training manual or course may have been useful at the start, I have nonetheless found everything to be fairly intuitive if you just poke around enough. PagePlus X5 definitely gets a recommendation from me!

For the $, this is a great desktop publishing program. They make it difficult for the user to register, then obtaining an installation number is also harder. Once you get past the company's shameless sales attempts, it's a really easy to use program. Great for beginners to intermediate users.

Having used it for several weeks now, I think that PagePlus is excellent, and has great bang-for-the-buck.

Like another person who posted, I used Scribus for awhile. Even after I figured out how to use it and understood many of its quirks, I found it to be very tedious to use. For example, while it can do text wrapping around an image, getting it to leave space between the text and the image required a good deal of effort. Plus it doesn't do bulletted text.

In contrast, PagePlus has just about every feature I could ever want, and while it can be complex, it is fairly easy to use, once you know the correct tool or dialog to use. I don't like the fact that some tools have no equivalence in the menus, so you cannot figure out how to do some things without examining all the toolbar buttons. For example, I couldn't figure out how to control the wrapping of text around an image by looking thru all the menu items (you'd think it would be in the Format menu). You have to click the wrap-control button to bring up the control dialog.

The Help system in PagePlus is quite good, and is context sensitive. Also, the PDF manual is pretty good.

One problem I had was trying to register the software after I installed it. The key code you get on the packaging works fine to get the software properly installed and working. But they also want you to register it. If you try to do this from inside the program using the Registration Wizard, eventually you wind up on a screen that asks you for a "registration key." This is not the key code on the packaging. In fact, it is a number you DO NOT HAVE. You must register online first in order to get this code, which you then enter into this Registration Wizard screen.
