Total Training for Adobe PageMaker 7
Remembering Total Training CDs
This week's feature is the Total Training series: "Total Training for Adobe PageMaker 7" hosted by Deke McClelland.
Thoughts About the Training
This 3-disk collection came out in 2002. I probably purchased around the same time. Adobe discontinued support of PageMaker in 2004 as they were encouraging users to migrate to Adobe Indesign.
PageMaker only works on macOS 9 - it was never ported to Mac OS X.
This training is CD-Rom disk training. It will not work in the latest macOS computers because the CD-disks were burned using HFS format. You will need to use a computer that has MacOS 10.14 or older.
As I recall, these were purchased as a set at a discount - I don't recall how much I paid for them. I am thinking about $99.
Someone on Amazon.com Marketspace is selling one of the courses but doesn't list a price. Another person on Walmart.com has Disk3 for sale for $40.95 - which is way over price for a training program on a legacy product.
