Value for money and loaded with features,
This review is from: PagePlus X4 (PC CD) (CD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As with most of these types of application, the first thing you're presented with is a list of templates to create a document from. If these aren't enough, there are plenty more on the second DVD. This should be enough for most people to get a start! You can change the "skin" to suit your own personal preference.
This is a pretty low cost application, but that isn't reflected in the features and general stability. I was most impressed with the ability to import PDF files and then edit them. I imported a 511 page document that had text and pictures, plus headers and footers and it did this without a problem. You can also insert objects from other apps (Such as MS office) and then launch the other app to edit by clicking on the area. So you can insert a word document, say, and then click on the area to edit it.
In general, the word processing features are pretty good - and you can link text to graphics objects so they move around as one, which is very useful.
As I tend to do a lot of mainly word processing, I found the "story" feature quite useful, as you can arrange separate documents for each chapter as a book.
I had no problems with any crashes or glitches. If you're looking for an app that'll do word processing as well as desktop publishing, this is good value for money.
