5.0 out of 5 stars Great product - overpowering sales team 2 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase
I have been a Serif customer since version 3 of PagePlus, currently version 16 (X6), and it has become a main part of my arsenal of applications when publishing documents either electronically or printed.

The features this version brings include the .ePub format, which is something I wanted to play with and see if my musings would be published and improved pdf support, which has always been good. I even use it for mocking up designs.

There is one BIG negative though! I have had several years of trouble free customer service from Serif, upgrading every couple of versions using their cheaper upgrade route, but from version 12 (X2) something happened to disturb myself and all the people I have recommended use this product, that is the Serif sales team.

I have obviously registered this product in the past only to have phone call after phone call pushing me to upgrade, buy more products Serif sell, which are great products, but on several occasions I have had to cut off the sales caller as they will not take no for an answer when I tell them I do not want to upgrade this time or buy something I do not need.

Sorry for the rant, I am glad Amazon sell this product, because it is really excellent, but the pushy sales team at Serif have pushed me to the point where I will never deal with them direct again. So far no phone calls after buying and registering this version from the Serif sales team, finger crossed I have finally got rid of them.

By Keith_Joseph HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
PagePlus X6 is a DeskTop Publishing program for producing things like brochures and magazines/newsletters, posters and flyers, menus and invitation/business cards, and business stationary. Serif PagePlus X6 is geared up for both paper printing and producing PC file output for eBooks [Kindle/iPad], pdf, eMagazines/eBrochures, and HTML web-pages. It can also create pdf questionaire forms for collecting customer information or surveys.

The original version of UK based Serif's PagePlus was released in 1991, the first commercial DTP package for Windows selling for under £100. Now Serif have over 6 million customers and their software is popular with voluntary and low-income organisations, and only the lack of Apple Mac support is cited as preventing it gaining wider acceptance within professional circles. Main competitors for PagePlus X6 are QuarkXPress, Adobe Indesign, and Microsoft's Publisher 2010. Serif's key advantage over these is that it is almost as powerful as Indesign/QuarkExpress, while being far easier to use and 10 times cheaper to buy. Although revamped Microsoft Publisher 2010 is as cheap, easier to use, and classier than PagePlus X6, Publisher 2010 lacks PagePlus's complete integrated package of a powerful photo-editor, graphics creation tools, PDF editor, and logo creator, all of which will probably be required by those serious about graphic design. To help get new users started, Serif offer on-line videos & FAQ, pdf and optional printed manuals, in-program help and guided assistance, local UK customer support and on-line community forums.

The hundreds of supplied design templates and logos are really just to get you started though, so to produce excellent professional output you will also have to get to grips with many of PagePlus X6's tools.

I had never tried Serif's products before but some positive reviews, and an affordable price tag, brought me to download their starter version of PagePlus . I then purchased PagePlus X6 after just a week of using the starter version. I come from several years of working experience with an old version of Adobe Indesign which for my needs is too complicated and certainly too expensive.

I am very satisfied with the product, having created a ready for print booklet after just one day of use. PagePlus comes loaded with lots of examples and templates, extra fonts that embed correctly in pdfs, and has enough photo-retouching and vector-drawing tools to suit the needs of any small business, self publisher or professional user. The PDF manual that comes with the software is well organized and clearly written.

I registered the software with a phone call (this seems to upset some users but I think it is a nice way to create customer awareness, and the fact that they offered other products at a much lower price than listed online certainly helped).

One area where Serif shines is the level of training material -- you can find books, free PDF guides, videos and a dedicated forum on their site. Info is easy to locate.

Is there room for improvement? As the software is now, it perfectly fits my needs. There may be some advanced typography options still missing (the possibility to align text to baseline grid for example, and an intuitive, one-click way to turn alpha channels into wrapping outlines ) but frankly this would be nit-picking. PagePlus is value for money, well-designed software with an easy to grasp interface and tons of stuff. If you design brochures, leaflets, business cards, PDF manuals -- look no further than PagePlus X6 and don't waste your money on more expensive applications.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent DTP Package 15 Jun. 2012
By Bob TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Please note that I purchased this direct from Serif as an upgrade package and received the CD and printed manual, please check what you are buying as there are a variety of packages. Also Serif have changed their upgrade policy, at one time you could get an upgrade if you had purchased any previous version, their policy now is to only give an upgrade price if you have bought the previous version. However if you want an upgrade price talk to them as the policy seems to be "adaptable".
One of the things I like about Serif software and I have been buying them since the first version is the printed manual, although online support is good I do not think there is any substitute for looking through a manual.
It is a very comprehensive DTP package and there is very little that it will not do, I don't always get the latest version but I got this for its support for ebook publishing as it has both ePub and .mobi (Kindle) versions, although for Kindle you have to download and install the "KindleGen" programme for it to work.
I also often use this to edit PDF files as it will open PDF files and allow modification and publishing (So long as if they are password protected you have the password) It is a far cheaper option than "Acrobat" and works as well if not better.
There are a number of new features in this version but there may not be enough to upgrade unless you do ebook publishing.
Other New Features some of which are quite specialist include-
* A different slightly uncluttered design page which hides items until you want them, I found this quite difficult to get used to.
* Multiple Table of Contents
* New indexing features
* Business user details per publication, this allows the easy creation of similar documents for different clients.
