    Excellent, I just bought and install the software, could not resist. And this is the first tutorial that I come? across. This is wonderful.

    Thanks.

    I’m going to make a couple of assumptions Loni; one that you’d like a grid-style layout, and secondly that you’d probably like two columns of images in a portrait page. Select File > Layout Guides and set 6 rows and 2 columns, with your choice of page margins and the row/column gaps. That’ll give you the foundation for a neat layout, then you can import a? picture, add a text label, and copy/paste into each of the other 11 spots for efficiency, replacing each picture and label. HTH.

    @LoniHart Loni those settings should work fine, but it’s worth trying alternate settings as an experiment, e.g. using the Web Compact profile. I’ve not heard of others? being unable to open PPX5 PDFs before, and at the Acrobat 5.0 level of compatibility it should open *everywhere*. Let us know how that goes. Thanks, Dale @ Serif.

    Wonderful explicit tutorial -Thanks. Question: I have 12 pictures I want on? 1 page with a label (text t box) under each with the same constraints. How would I set this up ?

    Hi Dale, RE PDF readability issues. You asked what profile I was using ‘Default ‘and set compatibility to ‘ Adobe 5.0’ Should I? change?

    Thanks

  8. SerifSoftware says:

    Hi Loni. Which profile are you using in the Publish as PDF dialog? There are presets there for different levels? of Acrobat compatibility and for different output purposes. However I’ve not heard of these settings causing a PDF to be unreadable, though, might be worth sharing a PagePlus file with tech support, or on our forum, for someone else to try and make a PDF from it to help troubleshoot if changing profile does not help. HTH, Dale.
