    Is there an application for mac that does like the Publisher of MS? my intention is to do a booklet like a 20 pager or so. Publisher does this very well by assigning the proper paging and printing etc. Thanks

    Pages cannot do multiple pages. If you have a 10 pager booklet, the 2nd page falls on another sheet of paper. so that when you print, 1st page should not be beside the 2nd. quite difficult to explain.

    I have to admit. Publisher is one of the programs i really miss when i shifted. Perhaps even now. I guess because it is quite simple.

    What about trying Adobe InDesign or Pagemaker? :)

    maybe using the Section and Section Break feature of Pages '09 might help. There's this tutorial from MacBreak that shows this neat feature. Don't know how to post a link to their podcast, just try to look for their podcast in iTunes with the following subject:


    MacBreak 225: Pages '09: Head to Foot 7:26 [Jun9] Alex and Rich explore everything from head to foot (and not much in between) in Pages '09

    For multiple pages or publication layout, nothing beats Adobe's Indesign or Pagemaker (obsolete). Not even MS's Publisher comes close.

    I haven't tried Adobe indesign. I suck at photoshop kasi, which is why i dread any adobe product except acrobat reader :) In publisher, it's just like creating text boxes in word.

    Does MAC not have something equal to Microsoft Publisher? Because I can't find it on my computer but I installed all the programs on the "Microsoft Office/Snow Leopard" disc...
