Free Desktop Publishing Software Download - PagePlus
A kid came round today telling me the Head of ICT said she could have a copy of Publisher to install at home! Honestly, does copyright not mean anything to teachers?
Anyway, it was the first time I had a request for Publisher. Usually it is for Office and I point them to OpenOffice. However, it diesn't reakky come with a DTP application. There is Draw, but it can't open .pub files.
So, does anyone know of any Free DTP software that will support .pub documents?
Yeah I did notice that one, but I was looking for a specific freeware app. that provides free support and updates. After all Page Plus 5 is rather ancient now.
Only decent free/up to date DTP is Scribus, but since the .pub format is proprietary there are no apps as far as I know that will import it - even paid for ones. MS don't even have a Publisher viewer available compared to the Excel/Word/Powerpoint ones...

Scribus is as close as you can get with a publisher clone, as for opening publisher files, I dont think anyone has managed to port it yet. When they do, I will be happy as it means we can finally open old publisher files and the kids can have there work back!
