This could be a couple of things, but primarily what jumps out is the file is corrupt. This might be unrecoverable. I would strongly suggest to first try someone who may have a copy of PM7 to try and open it. (Also, Indesign will open PM files, but not save them as pagemaker files, they will become Indd files).
The other thing could be that the file has embedded images that take up a lot of memory and this is leaving the computer short to run, where the application fails and crashes. Try shutting everything down and leaving just PM running to give it maximum memory access. I've encountered this before with a file that contained a very complex vector art file with lots of paths. If you have no other option, remove all the images that the file is using so it only renders screen dump images and does not have the originals to work from. If the images are embedded in the file; while PM is running, but the file is NOT open, set PM's preferences so that the display properties (under Edit/Properties) is set to "Grey Out". this will put grey boxes in place where all your images should be and you will be able to delete the offending image then.
Good luck, Please let us know how you go.

Huge files of page maker 6.5 was kept in local drive F, when i tried to open the said files it does not open and show that this format cannot open with this application.


Try re-creating the preferences of your pagemaker software by following the mentioned steps: (Steps are mentioned considering you have Windows XP installed)

1. Close PageMaker id its running

2. Open the Program Files/Adobe/PageMaker 6.5/Rsrc/Usenglsh folder.

3. Rename thefollowing files (for example, to Pm70old.cnf):

-- Pm70.cnf

-- Pm70filt.cnf

-- Pm70ppd.cnf

-- PStyles.cnf files

4. Start PageMaker. It will re-create preferences files.

If the problem continues, the preferences files is not the cause. To restore custom settings, delete the new preferences files and restore the original names of the previous preferences files.

See if this works and reply back.

Huge black spot over my pagemaker files


I installed version 6.5 of PageMaker as I was having problems with the 7 version. I am going to give you a link and suggest you try the following. Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe open your PM files and delete them all. unzip the files and put them all into the folder. Rename the folder PM65. In the folder open the application icon and it should load. the file is of course PM65.rar. The website is completely safe. It is my own web. Good Luck

Im using adobe pagemaker 7 and when i tried to insert a picture, it wont and says bad index 8901 or invalid content. please help me find a solution


That sounds like a problem with the source file rather than PM.
Open the image in a regular graphics program and save it under a different file name and as a JPG/JPEG format. Then try and import to PM.

Can we make a jpg file in pagemaker 6.5 ? How


Can't be done in PageMaker 6.5, or in any version of PM. PageMaker is a page layout program. One thing you CAN do is, print the file to EPS, and open/rasterize in Photoshop. Then you can save as a JPG.

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.

File conversion problem


That is a page layout document created by Adobe PageMaker 5. If you do not have Adobe PageMaker 5 installed on your machine, you will not be able to open it. If you do, open the program and then select OPEN from the menu and navigate to the PM5 file.

Good luck...
