PageMaker 6.01 for Windows(R)
Updater ReadMe

Installation

To install these PageMaker enhancements, you must have
PageMaker(R) 6.0 already installed on your system and have
your serial number available. The serial number may appear
on the mailing label on the package containing the CD-ROM
(the number starts with "03" or "03W"). You can also locate
your serial number by first running PageMaker 6.0, then
choosing About PageMaker from the Help menu.

Standard Installation
To install PageMaker 6.01:

1.Be sure you have PageMaker 6.0 installed.
2.Close any open applications (including PageMaker 6.0)
and turn off all virus-detection and screen-saver
software. This frees up memory for installation and
prevents possible conflicts between the Updater
installer and other programs.
3.Insert the CD-ROM into your CD-ROM drive.
4.Using the Windows Explorer (Windows 95) or the File
Manager (Windows 3.1), open the PMUPDTR folder
and double-click Setup.exe.
5.Select the language version to install. (Match the
language version you specified when you first installed
PageMaker 6.0.)
6.Read the License Agreement statement. If you agree to
the terms, click Accept to continue.
7.Choose Complete to install all of the new or updated
components, or Custom to install specific items that you
select. The Updater installer automatically selects the
folder that contains PageMaker 6.0. Do not install the
updated components in a folder other than this. If you
do, PageMaker 6.0 will not be properly updated.
8.Follow the instructions that appear on-screen.

Note that some additional PostScript printer description
(PPD) files are shown in the Updater installer. More PPDs
may be found on the original PageMaker 6.0 Deluxe
CD-ROM.

If you have questions during installation, click the Help
button in the installation dialog boxes.

Network Installation
Just like installing PageMaker 6.0, network installation of
PageMaker 6.01 is a two-part procedure:

PART 1: The network administrator installs files on the
network server, either a network running copy of PageMaker
6.01 (Windows 95 only) or disk images.

PART 2: Individual PageMaker users install component
files - either just the files required to run the network
version of PageMaker or their own copies of PageMaker -
on their workstations from the disk images.

The procedures for installing the PageMaker 6.01 update are
similar to those for installing PageMaker 6.0. If you
encounter problems, refer to "Troubleshooting Installation"
on page 22 of the Adobe PageMaker 6.0 Getting Started
book, which shipped with PageMaker 6.0.

Note: If you are installing on Windows 3.1, you must have
Win32s v1.30av167 installed to run this updater. (The
Win32s component shipped on the PageMaker 6.0 CD.)

PART 1
To install PageMaker 6.01 on a network server:

1.Close any open applications (including PageMaker 6.0)
and turn off all virus-detection and screen-saver
software. This frees up memory for installation and
prevents possible conflicts between the Updater
installer and other programs.
2.In Windows, log into the network server on which you
want to install PageMaker. You must have Supervisor
or Administrator Rights to install software, and you
must map the server directly to a drive letter to install
PageMaker.
3.Insert the CD-ROM into the appropriate drive.
4.Choose Start > Run (or File > Run from the File
Manager), type d:\pm6updtr\setup /n (where d: is the
CD-ROM drive indicator), and then click OK. Note
that you must insert a space after the word "setup" and
before the forward slash.
5.When prompted, click the language version of
PageMaker you want to install. (It should match the
language version you specified when you first installed
PageMaker 6.0.)
6.Read the License Agreement statement. If you agree to
the terms, click Accept to continue.
7.Confirm that the Installer will install the updated
components to the PageMaker 6.0 Network directory,
which is different from the PM6 directory that contains
the PM6.exe file.
8.Click either the Install on Network Server option
(Windows 95 only) or the Install Disk Images option.
9.Follow the on-screen instructions, and then click OK
when a message confirms a successful installation.
10.Ensure that all network users complete the steps in Part
2 (below) before attempting to run PageMaker. If
PageMaker is run before the update is complete,
problems may be encountered.

PART 2
Follow the appropriate procedure at each workstation,
depending on your network installation.

To install PageMaker components to run PageMaker from
the network:

1.Make sure that the network administrator has performed
steps 1 through 10 above (in Part 1) and that you have a
PageMaker serial number.
2.Close any open applications (including PageMaker 6.0)
and turn off all virus-detection and screen-saver
software. This frees up memory for installation and
prevents possible conflicts between the Updater
installer and other programs.
3.In the Windows Explorer, log on and navigate to the
pm6updtr network server folder, and then double-click
Setup.exe.
4.Read the License Agreement statement. If you agree to
the terms, click Accept to continue.
5.Click the Install PageMaker 6.01 Updater User Files
option.
6.Follow the on-screen instructions, and then click OK
when a message confirms a successful installation.

To update a local copy of PageMaker from network disk
images:

1.Make sure that the network administrator has performed
steps 1 through 10 above (in Part 1) and that you have a
PageMaker serial number.
2.Close any open applications (including PageMaker 6.0)
and turn off all virus-detection and screen-saver
software. This frees up memory for installation and
prevents possible conflicts between the Updater
installer and other programs.
3.In File Manager (Windows 3.1) or Windows Explorer
(Windows 95), log on and navigate to the pm6updtr
network server folder or directory in which the
PageMaker disk images were installed, open the
Images folder or directory, and double-click the
Setup.exe file.
4.Read the License Agreement statement. If you agree to
the terms, click Accept to continue.
5.Choose Complete to install all of the new or updated
components, or Custom to install specific items that you
select.
6.Follow the on-screen instructions, and then click OK
when a message confirms a successful installation.

Fixes and additions to the PageMaker
application

The updated PageMaker application repairs some known
problems with PageMaker features or its interaction with
other software and hardware. The most severe problems that
this update resolves are described here:

Large image files now import much more quickly when
you've selected to store the entire image in the
publication.
The File > Acquire > Acquire Image command can now
access 16-bit TWAIN data sources.
Palettes remain the same size and in the same position
as when last used.
Text with spot colors applied now prints in the correct
point size in separations.
Improved RGB-to-CMYK conversion

RGB-to-CMYK conversions now closely match those
of Adobe Illustrator(R) 6.0, so that both PageMaker
and Illustrator output the same colors when printing and
creating Adobe PDF files.

Colors defined with the RGB model now print slightly
differently on a PostScript(R) device or when printing
to disk in Portable Document Format (PDF). If you
want to switch back to the RGB-to-CMYK conversion
of PageMaker 6.0, you must rename two files found in
< folder containing PageMaker
6.01>\RSRC\SwitchB\dfltcmsg. First, rename
DFLTCMSG.SWB to DFLTCMSG.NEW. Then,
rename DFLTCMSG.60 to DFLTCMSG.SWB.

Create Adobe PDF
The Create Adobe PDF command includes
improvements to how it outputs reader's spreads and
publications with custom paper sizes.

The Create Adobe PDF preferences file stores
preferences for the last four publications you
processed, as well as global settings for any other
publications. To change the default global settings,
follow these steps:
1.Create a new PageMaker publication and name it
"PDFMaker.PM6." (You can leave the publication
blank and store it in any convenient location.)
2.Choose File > Create Adobe PDF.
3.Select the options that you want to be global
settings. (Most settings in the Create Adobe PDF
and Control dialog boxes can be saved.)
4.Click Create.

Now, when you create a PDF file for a publication not
listed in the preferences file, the dialog boxes default to
the options selected in step 3.

To change the default settings at a later time, open the
PDFMaker publication (or create a new one) and
repeat steps 2-4 above.

To restore the Create Adobe PDF dialog box to its
original default settings, hold down the Ctrl key while
choosing File > Create Adobe PDF.


Updated filters and drivers

ODBC Drivers (Windows 95 only)
Updated drivers for dBASE(R), FoxPro(R), Microsoft
Access(R), and Paradox(R) (used by the ODBC filter and
plug-in) correctly record the selected directory in the
Windows Registry and can handle long filenames.

Adobe Postscript 4.1 Driver
This driver corrects the Windows 95 PostScript printing
problems documented on the Printing Alert card that came
with PageMaker 6.0. Several of the features of this driver
are either duplicated in or unavailable when printing from
PageMaker 6.01. If these features (N-up printing,
WaterMarks, etc.) are selected when printing from
PageMaker, a "Driver Settings Alert" message appears. The
PageMaker print job will continue without consequence
once the alert is dismissed. To disable the alert, do the
following: Right-click the driver in the Printer Control
Panel, select the Properties sheet, select the PostScript tab,
click Advanced, and then deselect the "Display alert for
applications incompatible with driver features" option.

Tagged Text Import and Export Filters
The updated Tagged Text Import Filter repairs a number of
problems with mishandled formatting and a problem with
text being lost on import in certain cases.

A known problem with the updated filter is that if you have
two paragraphs with different paragraph attributes and the
first paragraph ends with a single or double quote, then the
first paragraph will inherit the paragraph attributes from the
second paragraph.

Note: Before you export text with this filter, apply specific
leading values to the text, rather than Auto. (Autoleading can
cause an error when you import the text back into
PageMaker.)

Please mark the following corrections in Appendix D of
your copy of the Adobe PageMaker 6.0 User Guide:

The note on page 399 incorrectly describes the tag
required at the top of text files. The tag should be

<PMTags1.0 win>.

In the table on page 407, PageMaker Tags for Special
Characters and Other Information, the tag for the
non-breaking space should be

<!>.

In the description of importing inline graphics on page
408, the tag should be

<?### ### ### "pathname including filename">


Note the addition of a space after the ### fields and the
use of quotation marks, not brackets. For example:

<&200 200 0 "freshair:boatfpo.gif">





New PANTONE Hexachrome
Precision Transforms from Kodak

Important: Before you begin working with high-fidelity
color, consult with your printer or prepress professional.

Two new PANTONE Hexachrome Precision Transforms
(PTs) offer improved high-fidelity separations compared to
those supplied with PageMaker 6.0. These new PTs (four
different files) do not replace the previous versions.
Although we recommend that you delete the previous
versions, first complete any high-fidelity color projects you
are working on; if you remove the old PTs and open a
publication that used them, your output will change.

When these files are installed, two new options appear in
the Separations Printer pop-up menu in the CMS Setup
dialog box in PageMaker (Normal SID and High SID).
Which PT you select depends upon the press operating
conditions:

Normal SID (Solid Ink Density) produces the clearest,
sharpest images and closely matches the SID and dot
gain characteristics of the inks as printed in the
PANTONE Hexachrome Color Selector.
High SID has a slightly wider tolerance for heavy
inking (especially black) on press. It also produces
excellent separations with minimal loss of clarity and
sharpness in images.

Note: Consult with your printer or prepress professional
regarding the density and dot gain information below. All
values were measured on an X-Rite Model 418. If your
measurements of the Pantone Color Selector differ from
these, determine the percentage of difference and adjust the
other values accordingly. For example, if your black (K)
measures 1.57, that is a 10% reduction from the Pantone
Color Selector SID in the table below (1.74). Subtract 10%
from the High and Normal values to get the SID you must
match on your press.

New and updated plug-ins

When installed, the new and updated plug-ins appear in the
Utilities > PageMaker Plug-ins menu.

New Plug-ins
GLOBAL LINK OPTIONS: This plug-in lets you quickly
apply new Link Options settings to all linked text and
graphics in the current publication. For example, you can
specify whether to store each linked graphic outside the
publication, or specify to update placed graphic and text
files automatically. Note the following guidelines:

The plug-in changes the options for all linked files of
the type you select.
The plug-in may take several minutes to run on
publications that contain numerous linked files.
Text and graphic files can have independent settings.
You can store graphics outside the publication but not
text files.


CHANGE CASE: This plug-in changes the way selected text
is capitalized. For example, you can use this plug-in to do
the following:

Change all letters to either lower case or upper case.
Capitalize only the first letter of every sentence and
change all other letters to lower case.
Capitalize the first letter of every word.
Change (toggle) the case of every letter.

Note: Unlike the Case option in the Type Specs dialog box,
this plug-in changes the capitalization of the letters. In
contrast, the Case option applies capital letters to the text,
but leaves the actual capitalization as originally typed.

WORD COUNTER: This plug-in calculates the number of
characters, words, sentences, and paragraphs in the
publication or currently highlighted text. For an accurate
count:

The text must have a standard font applied. (Symbol
fonts reassign characters that the plug-in assumes
designate the end of a word or sentence, such as the
comma, colon, and period, and thus may skew the
count.)
The text cannot be threaded between a regular page and
a master page.
The text must be selected (highlighted) with the Text
tool to count that text only. If you select text blocks with
the Pointer tool or have no text selected, the resulting
count is for the entire publication.

Updated Plug-ins
HTML AUTHOR: This update provides three new features:

You can now specify up to 100 hyperlinks in a single
publication.
You can now select and launch a Web browser on your
system and quickly view the HTML files you produce
from PageMaker. First, in the Contents section of the
HTML Author dialog box, select the name of the
document you want to view, and then click the icon in
the lower left corner of the dialog box. In the Open
WWW Browser dialog box, click Browser to locate
and select the browser you want to use, for example,
Netscape, and then click Open. Thereafter, the
application icon for the selected browser appears in the
HTML Author dialog box until you specify a new
browser.
You can apply a graphic background to an HTML page
as you create it.

To apply a graphic background to an HTML page:

1.Choose Utilities > PageMaker Plug-ins.
2.Click the Contents tab in the HTML Author dialog box,
and either click New, or select the HTML file you want
to change, and then click Assign.
3.Click Background, and then specify the graphic you
want for a background. The graphic you select must be
a JPEG or GIF image. The image will be tiled from left
to right and top to bottom so that it fills the specified
HTML document.

To remove a background you've applied, select the HTML
document you want to change, and click the Clear option
rather than the Background option in the Assign section of
the HTML Author plug-in.



New and updated utilities

QUARK CONVERTER: This utility corrects a problem with
the previous version, in which the Converter could in some
cases prevent a computer from shutting down correctly.

ADOBE TABLE 2.52: To use this update, you must have
Adobe Table version 2.50 or 2.51 installed. The updated
utility corrects the following:

Adobe Table no longer displays an error message upon
launching when you have a large number of fonts
installed.
Adobe Table no longer crashes when exporting WMFs
larger than 22.75" x 22.75".
Adobe Table correctly indicates when selections
contain mixed settings.
You can now hide the rulers.
You can now set border line widths using the Hairline
and None options.
Comma-delimited import and export now works
correctly.
Hidden characters are no longer included in exported
graphics in Show P mode.

(See the PageMaker 6.0 ReadMe for information on known
problems with Adobe Table that this updated utility does not
correct.)

Note: To align numbers on the decimal point, you need to
both precede each number with a tab and apply the Decimal
Alignment option. See "To Align Numbers in a Column" on
page 264 of the Adobe PageMaker 6.0 User Guide.



Known problems

Adobe Technical Support has documented most known
problems installing and running PageMaker, as well as tips
on its usage. The PageMaker 6.0 Enhancement Pack
CD-ROM includes these technical notes. To view a list of
these notes, double-click Index.pdf (located in
techinfo\technote\). When you locate a technical note you
want to read, double-click its number.

Red X over Kodak CM icon or pop-up menus missing in
CMS Preferences dialog box
The Kodak Precision Color Management System (CMS)
requires certain DLLs and Precision Transforms (PTs) to
run. When one or more of the DLLs is missing or damaged,
Kodak CM is disabled in the Color Management System
Preferences dialog box. When one of the PTs is not installed
in the KPCMS folder, the corresponding Kodak Settings
pop-up menu does not appear.

To reinstall the Kodak Precision CMS:

1.Insert the PageMaker 6.0 Deluxe CD-ROM (or Disk 1
of the PageMaker 6.0 disk set) and run the PageMaker
Installer. (Note: This is your original PageMaker 6.0
CD-ROM or disk set, not the PageMaker Enhancement
Pack.)
2.Click the language version of PageMaker you have
installed.
3.Click Custom Install.
4.Select Kodak Precision CMS and, if you use Kodak
Photo CDs, hold down the Ctrl key and select Photo
CD Filter & Support Files, then click OK.
5.Select the Kodak Precision CMS Device Profiles, and
click OK.

Cannot place Kodak Photo CD images
If you get the error message "Do not know how to place file
<filename>. Select file type." when placing a Kodak Photo
CD image, you probably installed Photoshop after
PageMaker was already installed. The Photoshop 3.0.x
installer replaces the Photo CD DLL files used by
PageMaker 6.0 with older versions.

To reinstall the versions required by PageMaker 6.0:

1.Insert the PageMaker 6.0 Deluxe CD-ROM (or Disk 1
of the PageMaker 6.0 disk set) and run the PageMaker
Installer. (Note: This is your original PageMaker 6.0
CD-ROM or disk set, not the PageMaker Enhancement
Pack.)
2.Click the language version of PageMaker you have
installed.
3.Click Custom Install.
4.Select Photo CD Filter & Support Files from the list of
install options, then click Install.

Error occurs when installing PageMaker 6.0 on a
computer with the NexGen Nx586 processor
To avoid this problem, install the UPDTV120.EXE software
update, available from NexGen. (Technical Support:
