My situation is similar to Mimi's. I want to buy DTP software and I would prefer Indesign as I have done a short course on it and really like it. The other thing about Indesign is that there is so much backup in the form of forums, intructional manuals etc. That means an answer to any problem can be almost immediately found. But I really cannot justify the cost of Indesign, particularly when associated programs are considered like Photoshop.
I have downloaded the free version of Serif Pageplus and the manual for X3 and I must say that I am not all that enamoured with it. Do you think George that it might be because I have the free version?
I am still making up my mind which way to go but over the years I have come to learn the cheapest way is often not the best.
By the way how does one get X2 as there seems to be no mention of it on the Serif website?
