Introduction
In all parts of society, documentation is increasing in volume and quality. In addition,
the number of people who are involved in creating this documentation is increasing
too. PagePlus 8 from Serif is designed for this evolution. It is designed to give any PC
user the ability to create strong, good-looking documents that really get the message
across. It does however offer a user the option of using any paper-based technology
from the simple matrix printer to the professional offset printing press. A document
may also be modified or created for the Internet. The sky is the limit.

Typical users
A typical user of PagePlus 8 cannot be narrowly defined. One typical user could be the
private user buying his first PC. Another typical user could be a professional who needs
an inexpensive, DTP application for high-end printing. The one user will love the
accessibility caused by the price and the high end printing features, the other that of
the user interface, the manual, the help system, and the wizards. Users of PagePro 8
work and play with Desktop Publishing, in their homes, their clubs, their schools and
their small and even large businesses.

Overview
To completely understand the scope of PagePlus 8, you have to remember how you
struggled yourself as a PC novice, and how great it is to print using an offset press, or
how great it is to publish colorful impressing websites. Maybe neither the expert user
nor novice user can truly appreciate what’s in it for the other user, but the person who
starts out as a novice, and finds himself creating his own documents from scratch for
the Internet or the offset press, in a matter of months, will surely be amazed. For the
novice or the busy expert, there’s a wealth of wizards making it possible to produce
impressing documents of all kinds with a few clicks, and the typing in of some
information in predefined fields. As a next step for the novice user, the Color Scheme
feature allows the user to change a whole set of colors in any design chosen from the
Page Wizard, with a single click. From then on, it’s a treasure hunt, and if anyone
looses the orientation, it’s back to the Companion for a basic understanding of Desk
Top Publishing or Internet Authoring.

                      out once and for all, and PagePlus 8 shifts and rotates the pages as

Installation
Installing PagePlus 8 gives you the first impression of how easy it is to use. The
package contains two CD ROMs and a printed manual. The manual, called
“Companion”, will give any user, the basics of DTP, Web Authoring, and PagePlus 8. A
much more detailed documentation of PagePlus 8 is found in the online help system.
The main CD, which must be installed first, is named “PagePlus 8”. To install it you
should just insert the CD, and wait shortly for the installer to run automatically. The
installer will ask you for a few settings, and you should leave them all at their defaults,
except the one asking about the use of American or European paper sizes. Change the
paper sizes to European, unless of cause American is desired. A restart of the PC may
be required. After installing the main CD, PagePlus 8 is ready to run, but since a lot of
the material for Wizards and ready to use material installs from the secondary CD, it
should be installed too. The secondary CD is called “Design CD” and installs even
easier than the main CD, since the few settings it asks for, should all be left at default.
Layout of a newsletter in 5 minutes
       Start PagePlus 8 from the Start menu and expect a Start-up Wizard to appear.
       Select the first option “Use a Page Wizard” and the “Choose a Wizard” window
        appears.
       Select the newsletter wizard “Bubble” by double clicking right on it.
This may be your first meeting with
the working interface of PagePlus 8.
The largest area is the work area,
called the “pasteboard”. Right now, it
has the first page of the “Bubble”
newsletter in the middle. To the left of
the pasteboard you see a toolbar for
creating and manipulating basic
PagePlus 8 objects. Some of the
toolbars above the pasteboard are
similar to those of other windows text
or graphics applications. They should
seem familiar from the beginning. To
the right of the pasteboard you find a
resizable area called the “Studio”.
                                          PagePlus 8 with the “Bubble” newsletter.
The studio has a number of tabs we
will try out as we go along. You may try clicking the different tabs before proceeding,
to see what they look like.
       Close the “ChangeBar”, we will get back to it later.
       Select the Wizard tab in the Studio, and try clicking each of the four options at
        the top.
       Select the Business Details option of the Wizard tab in the Studio.
       Enter your company address in the specified fields.
       Click “Contact Details” to get to the contact details fields, and fill them out
        too.
       Click the “Newsletter Setup” option and try each set-up. Please select the 3-
        column set-up.

Serif PagePlus 8



       In the “Newsletter Details” option, you specify Title, Issue and Date of the
        newsletter.
       In the “Color Scheme” option click on “Abacus” to see how the colors are
        changed.
       Find the best-suited color scheme, or return to the original “Snowball” color
        scheme.
This was all you had to do, to layout a newsletter. Providing and inserting content may
take longer than 5 minutes, but it is just as easy. Now you will make a few changes to
the newsletter to test drive some more functionality.
Making changes to the newsletter
Let’s remove a couple of pages, add footer, replace an illustration, and make some text
flow from page 1 to a new page you create. Select “Pages” in the studio, and resize the
studio to make it show the pages two by two.
       Select page 4 with a single click, and click the minus button to remove it.
       Remove page 3 in the same manner.
That was removing two pages in three steps. Now you will add footer.
       Double click the master page at the top of the studio to display it on the
        pasteboard.
       Make sure it says “Master 1” in the lower left corner. Notice the Master 1 page
        is blank.
       Select “Headers and Footers…” from the “Insert” menu.
       The Headers and Footers Wizard appears.
       Select “No” in the first window, which is asking if you want a header. Then click
        “Next”.
       Leave the “Yes” activated in the second window, which is asking if you want
        footer.
       In the third window type the footer text: “NOTICE: New phone no.: 12345678”.
Notice the “Page Number” button. You don’t use it because the newsletter has a page
number already, but here it is. You may try it, and then remove the part “<Page
Number>” from the Footer text field again.
       Select the position “Centered” and specify the size 0.8 cm. Click the “Next”
        button.
You may be using comma (,) for decimal point. PagePlus 8 accepts only period (.) as
decimal point.
       The last window says you are finished. Go backwards to review your selections,
        or finish.
After finishing the Header and Footer wizard, the footer is displayed at the bottom of
the page. It is however not correctly positioned before you have done so. To move and
position any object in PagePlus 8, you must select it by clicking it, and position the
cursor somewhere on the edge of the selected object, to have the cursor symbol
change to the “move” symbol ( ). When that happens, press and hold the mouse
button and move the mouse to move the object. The object is positioned when the
mouse button is released.

Serif PagePlus 8



       Select the new footer and position it, as just described, right under the blue
        margin frame.
       Double click page 1 in the Studio, to see the footer “in action”.

       Click the Zoom tool     in the View toolbar at the top, and click and pull a
        rectangle around the lower third of the page, to have a closer view of the
        footer.

       Click the “Fit Page” tool    to return to viewing the entire page.
That was the simplicity of Headers and Footers. You may change the text style of
headers and footers just as with any other text frame, of course. Let’s add an
illustration that you take from another wizard document.
       Select New from the File menu, to open the Start-up Wizard.
       Select “Use a page Wizard” and then select the first wizard “Ampersand”
You now have two documents open at the same time, and you may switch between
them by pressing the Tab key, while holding the Control key (Ctrl). If you do switch,
make sure you are in “Ampersand” when performing the next step.
       Click the portfolio tab of the studio, to open your personal portfolio.
       Select the large picture in the Ampersand document, and move it to the
        portfolio.
       A message box appears asking for a Design Name. Let’s call it “Feathers”.
The picture is taken out of the document, but not out of the wizard, so don’t worry. If
you want to copy an object to the portfolio, press down the control key before moving.
Try moving the picture back into the document, and notice how a copy is automatically
left in the portfolio.
       Close the Ampersand document without saving it. The newsletter reappears.
       Select the picture of the horse and carriage in page 1 of the newsletter.
       Press the Delete key on your keyboard to delete it.
       Drag and drop the “Feathers” picture from the Portfolio and onto the bottom
        story.
       Position the picture in the upper right corner of the story.
       Resize the picture to cover two columns. Use the lower left handle of the
        picture.
You may already have noticed that the picture covers part of the text. In this case, it is
not desirable, but it could be if the picture was set to be transparent. You will now
change the text wrapping settings of the picture to make the text flow around it.
       Click on the picture using the right hand mouse button. This opens a menu.
       Select “Wrap Setting…” from the menu just opened.
       Change the wrapping style to “square”,
This is all it takes to make the text wrap around the picture, but notice all the other
advanced settings, that will allow you to integrate text and graphics in any imaginable
way.

Serif PagePlus 8



       Click the OK button, to apply the changes and close the “Wrap Settings…”
        window.
Clearly some of the text has now been pushed out of the text frame by the larger
picture. In fact, all of the frames in the newsletter have excessive text, but since the
text is only there for the looks, it doesn’t matter. Let’s say however that in the story,
you have just illustrated with the picture “Feathers” it does matter, and you will do
something about it.
Flowing excessive text to a new frame
Let’s add a page, set it up like the other pages, and let the rest of the story flow into a
frame on this new page.
       Right click the text frame, and select “Update Object Default”.
Updating the object default saves its properties and applies them to all new objects
you create, of the same type. Size and position however, are not saved, let’s find and
remember those properties like this:

       Click the “ChangeBar” button        below to the right.
       Make a note the horizontal position and width of the text
        frame, as displayed in the ChangeBar.
       Select the uppermost text frame on page 2 and note its
        vertical position in the same way.
Now you are prepared to create new identical text frames in very
few steps.
       Open the Pages tab in the studio, and click on “+” to add a
        page.
       Click the “Next Page” button down to the left to view the
        new page on the Pasteboard.

       Click the “Standard Frame Tool”        on the toolbar to the left.
       Point at the page, press the mouse button, move the mouse, and release the
        mouse button.
       In the ChangeBar, Type the desired width and position you noted before.
        (Width: 14.91 cm. Vertical position 2.81 cm. Horizontal position: 10.80)
The height of a text frame is important too, but you will adjust that after flowing the
excessive text into the frame.
       Select the text frame with the Feathers picture on page 1.
       Click the little “ + “ button just below it, to pick up the flow of the excessive
        text.
Notice the cursor changes to the image of a jug. The jug changes when positioned over
different objects. When positioned over another text frame, it appears to be pouring
text out.
       Go to page 3, and “pour” the excessive text into the new frame by clicking on
        the frame.
       Select the frame and adjust its height using its middle lower handle.

You have now used the Page Wizard to start a newsletter in a flash. You have deleted
and created pages, created a new text frame, and connected it to an existing text
frame with flowing text. You deleted an illustration, inserted a new illustration and
made the text wrap around it. The newsletter still needs content to be finished, but
now we would like you to test-drive the Web Publishing mode of PagePlus 8. Save the
Newsletter if you want to continue working with it later.
Website layout in 5 minutes
Let’s use your new skills and extend the test drive into the PagePlus 8 Web Publishing
mode:
       Select “New” from the File
        menu and expect a Start-up
        Wizard to appear.
       Select the first option “Use a
        Page Wizard” and the “Choose
        a Wizard” window appears.
       Click on “Web Sites” at the
        bottom of the smaller left area
        of the window.
       Scroll down in the right area
        and select the wizard “Desert”.
       Wait for the Wizard to load, and
        then close the ChangeBar.          PagePlus 8 with the “Desert” website
You already tried filling in the business details and selecting a color scheme for the
newsletter, so let’s go to the Web Site Details in the Wizard tab in the studio.
       Enter the web site details. Remember to click “Additional Details”.
Assuming the number of pages fit the purpose of the website, the layout is now
finished. Adding content takes longer of course, unless it is already prepared and ready
to be inserted. To make a website visible on the Internet, you have to send it (upload
or publish it) to one of the Internet computers (Internet servers). This is very easy to
do, but you will need to have access to a file folder with an Internet address on the
Internet server, and the server will have to accept the FTP protocol (File Transfer
Protocol). You can find places on the Internet renting out file folders with addresses.
Some of them are small and very inexpensive. If you want to do so, search the
Internet for “Web hotel”. If you want to publish your website on a local network, it’s
even easier. In the following you will have a look at the publishing function, and you
will try to preview the website in a browser. A browser is a program displaying
websites. If you have Internet access on your PC, you have a browser. If you don’t
have Internet access, you may still very likely have a browser installed, so just go
ahead and try it.
       Select “Publish Site” and then “to Web….” from the “File” menu.
       In the small window appearing, select “All”.
       In the “Specify Account Details” window, you type the access information.
       When clicking OK, the transfer begins, if valid account details are entered.
       Click “Cancel” in the “Specify Account Details” window.

Transferring may take a while, depending on the size of the website, and the speed of
the connection, but a sound will alert you when the transfer is finished. Now let’s have
a short look at publishing to a local network.
       Select “Publish Site” and then “to Disk folder….” from the “File” menu.
       The Publish to Folder window appears.
       Specify which pages to publish, and in which folder to save the pages.
       If you want to try publishing the website locally click OK.
       If you want to continue the Test Drive without publishing, click Cancel.
The folder selected, may be a folder on your own PC, or a folder somewhere on your
local network. The path of the folder (i.e. P:\websites\salesdepartment\products) is
then used in the address field of the browser to point at the website. Now let’s
preview the website in a browser.
       Select “Preview Website in Browser…” in the File menu, and select “All”.
       Wait for the website to show in a browser. Try clicking the buttons.
Well, that’s all it takes to preview and test your website. You should select “All” to be
able to test the navigation between the pages. If you have links to other websites,
they can be tested as well, if you are connected to the Internet. Let’s try a little
creative refining now.
Creating a rollover button
Let’s make a roll over button out of a picture. A roll over button changes appearance
when the cursor “rolls” over it.
       Close the browser.
       Go to page 3, and move a copy of the first picture to the Portfolio for safety.
Remember to press the Ctrl key before selecting the picture, to leave a copy of the
moved picture on the page. Click the “Undo” button       at the top if you already
moved the picture without leaving a copy.
       Right-click the first picture. (Use the right mouse button).
       In the right-click menu, choose “Filter Effects…”
       Check the Filter Effect “Bevel and Emboss”, and set the depth around 500.
       Click OK, and return to the picture. Leave it selected.
       Select “Export as Picture…” in the File menu. A file saving window opens.
       Select your Documents folder. In “File type”, select “GIF”. As file name type
        “aaaNormal”.
       Make sure “selected Object(s)” and “Show Filter Options” are checked.
       In the Export Options, select “Optimized”. Click OK.
       After Exporting is finished, open the Attributes tab in the studio.
       Set the Shade/Tint at the bottom to about +60% to brighten the picture.
       Select “Export as Picture…” in the File menu.
       Name the brighter version of the picture “aaaOver”, and export it like before.

As you may have guessed, a roll over button is made out of two images. When
displayed by a browser, and correctly programmed, the bright image will show when
the mouse is over the button, the other when the mouse is not. PagePlus 8 will do the
programming, to your specification. Just do like this:
       Open the ChangeBar, and note the size of the picture (155 X 103)
       Delete the brightened picture to make room for the button.
       Select “Web Object” and “Rollover…” from the “Insert” menu.
       Click the “Set…” button.
       Type: ”http://www.soh.nsw.gov.au/” in the “URL address on the internet” field.
       Check the Rollover state “Over”.
       Click the “Browse…” button for the “Normal” rollover state.
       The Import Picture window opens.
       Click the file aaaNormal.gif in your documents folder, and click “Open”.
       Select the aaaOver.gif file for the “Over” rollover state in the same way.
       Click OK to finish setting up the rollover button.
       The cursor is now changed to a plus sign, with a small gray button next to it.
       Drag the rollover button out on the page while pressing the mouse button.
       Resize the button to 155 X 103 pixels. Look below to see the size.
       Position the button precisely now, and preview the website like before.
       Wait for the Website to show in the browser.
       Try moving the mouse over the button.
       Try clicking the button.
You have now created a beveled rollover button, that links to the Sydney Opera House
website.
Drop shadow, Transparency, and Hot Spot
Let’s add a drop shadow to one of the other pictures, and transparency to yet another
one.
       Right click the second picture on page 3, and select “Filter Effects…”
       Check the effect “Drop Shadow” and click OK.
That was almost too easy, and you may want to experiment with all the settings
available in the Drop Shadow filter, but the effect is fine with just the default settings.
       Right click the third picture and select “Transparency…”
       In the Transparency Window choose the type: “solid”.
       Set the transparency to 80% and click OK.
       Resize and reposition the picture to cover the upper half of the page.
Just let the picture slightly exceed the top and side edges of the page.
       Select “Send to Back” in the “Arrange” menu.

      The picture is now used as an addition to the background.
      Preview the page in the browser, to see the exciting effect.
If you want part of a picture, or just part of your page to be sensitive to mouse clicks,
and link to another page, you want to create a Hotspot covering that area. Try creating
a hotspot covering a building in a picture on page one.
      Go to page one.
      Use the zoom tool to get a closer view of the first
       picture.
      Click the “Hotspot” tool   to the left, and drag a
       rectangle around one of the buildings in the
       picture.
      When you release the mouse button the
       Hyperlinks windows is displayed.
      Select the type of hyperlink you want, enter the address, and click OK.
You can change the shape of the hotspot, it the area it should cover is not rectangular.
This is the end of the test drive. We hope that it is not the end of your friendship with
PagePlus 8. Help for further exploration is available in the online help, in the tutorials
on the Design CD, in the book “Companion”, and we at Draware A/S will be pleased to
assist you on your treasure hunt.
