Before you begin

  1. Before launching PageMaker, return all settings to their defaults. See "Restoring default settings" in Lesson 1.

  2. Make sure that the AGaramond, AGaramond Bold, AGaramond Bold Italic, Minion, Minion Semibold, Minion Semibold Italic fonts, the Myriad Multiple Master font family, Zapf Chancery, and Zapf Dingbats fonts are installed on your system.

  3. Make sure that Acrobat Reader, Acrobat Distiller, and an Acrobat Reader-compatible Web browser are installed. Also, make sure you have enough RAM to run PageMaker, Distiller and Reader at the same time. You will use Reader and Distiller for the PDF section of the lesson.

  4. Note

    The RAM requirements above apply only when creating online documents. Viewing them requires much less RAM. HTML documents require only a Web browser to view them, and PDF documents require only Acrobat Reader.

  5. Start the Adobe PageMaker application.

  6. Open 09Begin.t65 in the 09Project folder. If the publication window does not already fill the screen, click the Maximize button. Save the publication as 09Work.p65 in the 09Project folder.

    What you see is the newsletter as it was originally printed. The publisher wants to make back issues of the newsletter accessible via the Web, rather than storing them and mailing them to readers. Of course, the design of the newsletter is not optimal for on-screen viewing, so it would be best to redesign the publications for the screen. The publishers, however, do not have the time or the resources to redesign several years of back issues. Instead, they will use features in PageMaker to make the newsletter easier to read on-screen in either PDF or HTML.

  7. Set up the palettes you will need for this lesson. If the Hyperlinks, Styles, and Colors palettes are not visible, choose Window > Show Hyperlinks and Window > Show Colors. Drag the tab of the Hyperlinks palette onto the already combined Styles and Colors palette to combine all three. Close any other open palettes.

To prepare this publication for online distribution, you will first add hyperlinks to the publication to allow online navigation through the publication. After that, you will learn how to create HTML and PDF versions of the publication, so you can compare them and evaluate the production requirements of each format.
