You can't reliably open/paste text from Microsoft applications into PageMaker. I know exactly what is happening, I see it a bit, and the only solution is to replace those characters.
Are you aware of the ASCII Character Code table set - Firstly, are you on Mac or PC, this bit's for PC users. There is a huge array of 'hidden' characters on any typing application that will be produced from Windows using the ASCII Character table by holding down the Alt key and at the same time typing a number on the keypad; such as Alt+156 will give you the pounds character (£). You should be able to open a "Charset" file from C:Programs\Adobe\Pagemaker\Extras folder which will be the table of ASCII characters you can use. NOTE:: by default PM6.5 install the folder will be in C:\PM65\Extras.
Failing this, you will have to look up (or create, as I did) a character font list like Dingbats or Symbols or Wingdings to find the character you need.
Yes, you will have to manually fix any shortfalls in the text appearing on the page.
TIP:: When you have the MS Word document, save the file as TEXT ONLY and then from PageMaker "place" the text onto the page, it'll ask you to "Remove returns at ... end of every line" do NOT check this, no to remove returns = this method will give you the most accurate text imports, and none of the annoying MS Word type styles imported.

Why can't I ask a question without your prompt telling me that I'm using illegal characters? What are those anyway?


FixYa basically accepts only letters, numbers, and symbols that appear on most standard keyboards. It doesn't like accented letters, diacriticals, and the like. And it definitely does not like formatting characters used my many word processors. If you're copying and pasting from a word processor, use the "Paste as plain text" instead of "Paste."

I WANT TO CONVERT PMD TO PDF


A .pmd (PageMaker) document can usually be exported or "saved as" a .pdf (Picture Document Format) very easily. BUT, when you first installed PageMaker, did you also install the filter to handle that conversion?

From within PageMaker, use the "Print" option but instead of chosing a printer, choose the Adobe Distiller as your printer. If the distiller is not listed in your printers list, get your PageMaker installation disks and re-install the distiller. It should be listed under "Filters".

I need to open PMD documents and i am searching for a free software


Hello,

PMD files are associated with PageMaker application. And as far as the compatibility is concern, only associated application would be able to open that. Till date I haven't heard any other similar app to open a file that was created in pagemaker. You will need to install pagemaker only, that could be a trial version. What you can try... importing the file with the latest versions of adobe cs. I hope this will help you to get the resolve.

I just need to know how to use the diacritic/accent mark key on my Aspire 5610 keyboard.


Hi,

I'll be glad to help you out with this. Assuming you have XP, you have 2 choices. Either use the Character Map, or an ALT code.

To access the character map, click

Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Character Map



An ALT code is simply when you hold down the ALT key and press a series of numbers on the keypad to get different symbols. Here's a list of ALT Codes:

Hope this helped :)

Translate a pagemaker file into indesign


This is from Adobe InDesign (CS3) Help module:
Convert PageMaker documents InDesign can convert document and template files from Adobe PageMaker 6.0 and later. When you open a PageMaker file, InDesign converts the original file information to native InDesign information. InDesign files are saved with an .indd filename extension.
For more information, see the PageMaker Conversion Guide (PDF) at www.adobe.com/go/learn_pmconv. Before opening the document in InDesign, you may want to do the following:
  • If the PageMaker file or its linked graphics are located on a network server, floppy disk, or removable drive, it may not open as expected if an interruption in data transfer occurs. To prevent data transfer problems, copy documents and their links to the hard disk, preferably in the same folder where the PageMaker publication is stored, before opening them in InDesign.
  • You may want to use Save As in PageMaker to clear unnecessary hidden data.
  • To ensure that all links are maintained, copy all linked files to the same folder where the PageMaker publication is stored.
  • Make sure that all necessary fonts are available in InDesign.
  • Repair broken graphics links in the PageMaker publication.
  • If you have a problem converting a large PageMaker document, convert portions of the PageMaker file separately to isolate the problem.
If you cannot open a corrupt PageMaker document in PageMaker, try opening it in InDesign. InDesign can recover most documents that PageMaker cannot open.
