Lesson 1. Flyer > Starting PageMaker

Starting PageMaker

After verifying that the correct fonts are installed on your computer, you will start the PageMaker application.

  1. In addition to the commonly used fonts listed in the Introduction, make sure the following fonts are installed on your computer: Minion Display, Minion Display Italic, MyriaMM_215 LT 600 NO, and MyriaMM_700 BD 600 NO (from the Myriad multiple master family).

    Windows only

    Because of the way Windows handles fonts, Minion Display Italic does not appear in font menus in Windows applications. You must apply italic to Minion Display to use Minion Display Italic.


    Created primarily for text, the Minion family contains black weight, display, and swash fonts, expert sets, and a full range of ornaments. Myriad, a multiple master typeface, is a sans serif design. Myriad makes a good text face as well as providing flexibility for filling display needs in all sizes and media.

    Note

    Serifs are the small strokes at the top and bottom of a letter. Typefaces without serifs are generally called sans (without) serifs.


  2. Depending on the platform, start PageMaker as follows:

    • In Windows, choose Start > Programs > Adobe > Adobe PageMaker 6.5 (your menus may differ depending upon your installation).
