"Does everything you need."

December 22, 2012  |  By twoarrow

 |  Version: Serif PagePlus Starter Edition 2.02

Pros

Goodbye MS publisher and MS office. I switched over to Kingsoft office and needed a publishing program. There's very few out there but Serif has what you need. They do have a window that asks you to buy the upgrade but that's not a problem. Anymore when you download a program you must take your time and un-check what you don't want like other tool bars etc. This program does it all no matter what you have to make.

Cons

No Cons to report here.

Summary

Try it and you will see how easy it is.

"It looked like it was just what I wanted."

September 16, 2012  |  By trailerqueen57

 |  Version: Serif PagePlus Starter Edition 2.02

Pros

The program appeared to be exactly what I was looking for. I designed my first poster and was thrilled with how easy it was.

Cons

Because my HP printer did not have the required "large font" driver (and after searching HP for it found it wasn't available for my printer), I was unable to print my "masterpiece". SO I have since uninstalled it.

Summary

If you do not own or have access to a new HP printer, don't bother.

"Best publishing program of all time!"

September 04, 2012  |  By Lloyd_Hayes

 |  Version: Serif PagePlus Starter Edition 2.02

Pros

I can't even scratch the surface here. It out shines all other publishing programs.

Full Word Processor
Limited Photo Editor
Can utilize external word processors and photo editors
Pages can be completely customized
Unlimited pages
Publish to printer, press, or online to the web.
Has a checker to check document for it's comparability to the selected publishing options.
Reads and writes PDF files, including security features
Easy to use.

Cons

In reading PDF files, the text boxes sometimes don't line up properly.

Summary

This is another one of Serif's programs that I have used for about 15 years. I have also used a few other publishing programs and this one has always been in a class above them, plus it is cheaper. Use it for publishing your next book, document, poster, flat or folded post card, or website. It can replace many of the programs that you may have on your computer. It has a great word processor which checks document for spelling and grammar. It also has a limited photo editing program. It can also utilize your favorite word processor or photo editing program.

This is one program that your computer should not be without.

Sorry about the 2 duplicate updates. Blame it on a bad internet connection.

Update May 2014

I should have added that I have always had the pay version, and not the free version.

I wrote this review about a year ago and I still have not seen any programs that even approach program in quality. I've used MS-Publisher in the past, and it does not even come close to the features and ease of this program. It handles every pushing job that I can think of, including web page/site creation and publishing.

One drawback is that each annual update is getting more expensive.

(The download here looks like it might be a very old version. Serif comes out with a new version each year based on customer suggestions.)

"Awesome Publishing Program"

April 06, 2012  |  By GeektexDotNet

 |  Version: Serif PagePlus Starter Edition 2.02

Pros

Affordable
Simple to use
Many features

Cons

None at all.

Summary

I have the version you pay for and I have already made my money back times 20 doing designs for people such as Menus and ads. This program is so easy to use and there is pretty much no limit to what you can design. Will be purchasing there Webplus program next and upgrading to their Pageplus X6.
