5-0 out of 5 stars Much needed upgrade
Acrobat for Windows (and other Adobe software) is expensive. Way too much. Every Adobe program costs hundreds of dollars, and only recently they started offering product suites that greatly reduce the cost of ownership. Acrobat is included in every such collection. The problem with such collections (4 programs) is that the price tag approaches 4 digits. All of these suites contain Acrobat (4.0), the heading program of "e-paper solutions". If the changes from version 3.0 to version 4.0 were profound, then the change to version 5.0 is much more than substantial, it's overwhelming.

REMARKS FOR FIRST-TIME USERS: If you don't already know that, here is a short, but important message for newcomers to the PDF world: if you only need to read PDF files - you do not need Adobe Acrobat - just download a free Acrobat *Reader* from Adobe website. If you need to create the simplest possible version of PDF documents, there are free tools on the web that will allow you to do that. Acrobat is a powerful program that is designed to assist you in almost every aspect of publishing electronic documents online, or sharing them in a multi-platform environment. Hence, as this software is expensive - you might reconsider your purchase. If you regularly publish important stuff online and you work in a potentially multi-platform environment or the whole network AND you think seriously about your work, then Acrobat is for you (this is why I tested and bought yet another upgrade). Nevertheless, this powerful tool may be too much. If you need to distribute files among friends or post some messages online, you might consider using HTML (available even via any word-processing software like Word). PDF format is really designed to be multi-platform - and you have to pay a "nice" price for the opportunity to create such documents.

WHY IS THE UPGRADE WORTH YOUR ATTENTION: For the first time in Acrobat history you are able to RESTRUCTURE existing PDF documents. It's especially useful when you no longer have the original version of the file from which PDF was created. To this end, Acrobat uses the RTF format recognizable by every word processor. Acrobat can publish user-interactive documents online - with integrated (yet still limited) options used in productivity office suites: calculation, spell-checking, multi-user collaboration. You can specify permissions on distributed documents, like allowing/disallowing printing, changing or copying text to clipboard. Newly supported encryption is now 128 bit. Finally, FINALLY, Adobe decided to simplify the user interface a little. Now, more than ever, Acrobat toolbars are much more customizable - you can arrange them in the floating Photoshop-type way, or use all toolbars (including new formatting toolbar) at once, as in Microsoft software. This is a step in a good direction. Last, but not least, you have a PDF repair utility. It is especially useful when you use a browser plug-in (Acrobat integrates with MSIE and Netscape) to save a web page, or capture it and convert to PDF. There is a high probability that the file will include unnecessary portions of html code, including scripts. That's a very good reason to upgrade, if not anything else.

REMARKS: PDF writer (a simple PDF-producer included as a "virtual" PDF printing option) fails more often than not and in order to have correct results, it's better to use Distiller (a full-featured virtual PDF printing engine) which may be not user-friendly to new users. Still, in this version 5.0 the old truth remains the same: not every graphics object you have in your document will be converted - sometimes you will get a blacked area instead of the picture. There is no other way around than experimenting with the file type, which may be confusing in some productivity applications.

SUMMARY: Powerful tool for those who really need multi-platform secure document creation and distribution. It's still relatively-user unfriendly. If you have already used a previous version, 4.0., do not hesitate. If you are contemplating first-time purchase, read the above remarks and think twice. That's of course if you have enough money to buy Acrobat.

5-0 out of 5 stars For functionality and reliable cross-platform compatibility.
Acrobat 5.0 can convert any file type from its application's print command into a PDF, which, when viewed by someone with the free Acrobat Reader, will look the same as you created it, irrespective of their monitor's resolution setting, or computer platform. This means that a document containing text and images will look correct on screen and when printed. At present, the Adobe PDF format is the only means of achieving this.

You can create a navigation path within your PDF using the Bookmarks feature. Highlight and add annotations to sections of the document. And include hyperlinks as in an HTML page, etc.

Using Acrobat to create a bookmarked photo-gallery, for example, will result in a file much smaller than an equivalent HTML item when you use Acrobat's screen-optimised Distiller settings, and with all the images retained within the PDF itself, instead of split between a contents folder and its associated HTML page. The PDF can be secured so that your images and text are secure from simple pilfering.

The security settings in Acrobat 5.0 are a little more comprehensive than was available in 4.0. Examples being password encryption at 128 bits, and print resolution options of high and low. Even so, PDF security is a matter of hot debate at present, as is security in any computer format. So don't get overly confident. Only regard a secured PDF as being safe from access or tampering by Joe Public. In the case of my photo-gallery example I can secure the PDF from interference in the Reader and the application by using a password. But the images can still be extracted in a PC by simply hitting the print-screen key and then pasting the clipboard contents into an image application such as Photoshop. This also applies to text which can then saved as a TIFF file and processed in an OCR application such as Fine Reader 5.0 Pro, or by straight transcription.

Some features are now more easily accessed: Distiller and Security settings being two.

Whether or not Acrobat 5.0 is a major improvement over 4.0 is superfluous, since 4.0 will soon be unavailable. 5.0 does everything that 4.0 did, and more, but some of the features are not backwards compatible with earlier versions of the reader. Users of your files will have to be forewarned if you are using such features, to upgrade their reader. Adobe claim over 200 million Acrobat Reader installations, but that includes readers of 3.0, 4.0, and 4.05 vintage. An example of incompatibility would be an access password set at 128 bits. The recipient must have the 5.0 reader installed to gain entry. Sorry to rabbit on about this, but it is a current point of contention as to why PDFs are not used as often as they might be. Joe Public seems to have an aversion to updating even their internet browser, which is why web-masters have such a fun time keeping their web-sites as compatible as possible. PDFs can be used instead of HTML pages on your web-site but for maximum compatibility you will have to ensure that all important features can be read by a 3.0 reader. Bit of a pain, but there you are. Keep your PDFs simple and there shouldn't be a problem.

When you buy Acrobat 5.0, and you haven't any prior experience, I would recommend that you buy and work your way through Adobe's Acrobat 5.0 - Classroom in a Book. This, in conjunction with the Acrobat help guide ( Help > Help guide ), will tell you all that you need to know. Methodically work your way through the classroom book first though. It'll be a lot easier if you do.

A well designed PDF is the best way for you to communicate your intentions whether that be an e-book, technical supplement, or a photo-gallery

5-0 out of 5 stars This is the best deal going right now for Acrobat
By the time I was done reading the reviews for Adobe Acrobat 6.0 I was depressed. Not only do I not have Windows XP, or Windows 2000, or NT installed in my machine (The only operating systems that will work with 6) I also couldn't muster up the confidence in the product after so many people were giving it the thumbs down. I want to create an eBook, and Adobe Reader is the most popular reader out there, with some 400 million, to a half a billion users with it installed. What a dilemma. I kept coming back to read some more. Finally I found the answer. I bought a new Adobe Acrobat 5.0 here at Amazon from one of their vendors, and it works great with my Windows 98SE. I planned on buying the 6.0 upgrade after they got the bugs out, and or I got a new computer with XP. Then I found out that 5.0 was the only version before, and that was the professional version. 6.0 Standard is a geared down version of 5. Ok, so it has some additional features, but it is missing all the rest of the professional features that 5 has.
So what's the skinny on the deal? For what I paid for a new 5 that is the full program, unregistered, and upgradeable, plus what I would have to pay here at Amazon for the 6 Professional Upgrade, I saved 80 bucks, and wound up with both versions 5 and 6 pro. Which as I mentioned are both professional versions. If I bought 5 and upgraded to 6 standard, I would only spend a little more for both versions. (About 4 percent more for standard, and about 20 percent less for professional) That way if 6 standard turned out to be as bad as many were saying it is, I would have 5 also.
In the final analysis, I am using 5 and am super excited about the new capabilities that Adobe Acrobat gives you. I'm hoping that by the time I get a new machine with XP on it, Adobe will come out with 6.something, or a second edition of 6 etc. with the fixes built in.
I'm not the only one to come to this conclusion. I noticed in the sales rank at the time I bought it and wrote this review, that 5 was outselling 6. Also I noticed that in the "Those who bought 5 also bought this" section, it had a special note that said, 47% of the people who bought 5 also bought the 6 upgrade. If your running XP, 2000, or NT, get them both. That way all the bases are covered.
Check out the reviews on 5 you'll be surprised how everybody raves about it. To be perfectly honest with you, if I had an XP machine, I would have ordered the 6 upgrade at the same time. Hope this helps.

3-0 out of 5 stars Merely a Stepping Stone
Since, for some unknown reason, Adobe doesn't offer a direct upgrade path from Acrobat 3 to Acrobat 6, I bought this Acrobat 5 Upgrade merely so I could qualify for a free upgrade to Acrobat 6. Not only is this silly of Adobe, it's also expensive. Instead of buying an Acrobat 6 package, sticking my old Acrobat 3 CD into the drive, and continuing on my way without further hassle or expense, I had to buy the Acrobat 5 upgrade, go to the Adobe website to find their customer support phone number, call them via their 800 number, get them copies of the receipt, pay a token shipping cost, and then install the new software. What's even worse is that I've spent over six weeks trying to do that. Amazon got me the package immediately. But, so far, I've had to talk to Adobe (at their expense) five times. The first time was to find out that the upgrade existed and get the instructions for faxing the information to them. Supposedly, my fax never arrived. Then, I had to talk to them about that and get a snail-mail address. Supposedly, THAT package never arrived. Then, with my next call, I managed to get an email address to send the documents to. Again, supposedly, that never arrived. Finally, I talked to a person who had me re-fax just the receipt and my Acrobat 3 serial number. She called me back within a half an hour and we completed the whole process (confirmed my shipping address and got a credit card number for the shipping fee). Besides the hassle I had to go through, this upgrade must have cost Adobe a bundle in phone and support personnel costs. The free upgrade period from Acrobat 5 to 6 is over now, but Adobe really needs to come up with a better way for their old Acrobat 3 customers to upgrade.

4-0 out of 5 stars Newbie to Acrobat
Yes indeed Adobe Acrobat is too expensive, but, when considering the alternatives of buying other brands of PDF software that have less than pleasing quality, it all boils down to choosing the product that has the highest quality. To my knowledge, Acrobat is still the best PDF software available.

My personal needs are to create PDF files, encrypt them, require passwords to view, and restrict the user from printing and copying. After testing a couple other PDF products, I quickly discovered that their security was overly easy to bypass, no I take that back, they were *ridiculously* easy to bypass. Adobe's security has so far proven to be usefully solid.

Since Adobe provides limited public information about their products, I recommend that you first buy a book teaching how to use an Adobe package and read it through so that you will know what the software actually does and does not do. Yes, I agree, having to purchase a book and spend the time studying is not the prefered way to learn about any product, but the few dollars invested can easily pay for itself by your knowing which software to buy (or more specifically, what not to buy!).

What has amazed me the most with my Acrobat experience is when I had to call Adobe customer service to get a complex upgrade to version 6. Not only did the girl answering know what I was talking about, she also accomplished the entire order within that one phone call! WOW! Customer service like that is unheard of today. Apparently Adobe does care about its products enough to hire quality employees, and with that level of care, I feel more confident that I made the right decision choosing Adobe. Too, I purchased Acrobat from Amazon for the same reason of wanting quality service.

There are other PDF products available, some are even free, but for those of us who prefer quality and usefulness over initially lower costs, Acrobat is an intelligence choice. Choosing the right product today, the one that does not crash nor take time away from our work to fiddle with settings, gives us more time to whine about the costs later. If Acrobat were less expensive, I would give it five stars. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Don't forget to factor in manuals to the final price.
I grew up on Adobe products. They used to include great manuals and tutorials. Now I have paid more and received less. I am trying to learn how to use GoLive but the online manual doesn't make a whole lot of sense. How come a printed manual isn't included? Oh, I have to pay more for it? How come I seem to be paying for printing costs then? Customer support? To get real help I'll have to pay for it. I used Adobe Premiere for Mac but that product got abandoned. I will not buy another Adobe product until they either give more or charge less. If you are getting started with web design I would suggest going somewhere else. That being said... Illustrator and Photoshop are both still great products and the upgrades were easy for me to understand (probably because the last versions I had included a printed manual and tutorials). Let's face it, if it wasn't for OS X, I would have just stuck to the older versions of Photoshop, Illustrator, and PageMaker and bought Dreamweaver instead. Photoshop CS - Classroom in a Book = $45. Illustrator CS - Classroom in a Book = $31.50. GoLive CS - Classroom in a Book = $45. InDesign - Classroom in a Book = $45. Acrobat Pro - Classroom in a Book = $45. $211.50 in manuals right there. Its a good product but it keeps on costing you in time and money.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent design software
No software is perfect, but Adobe comes as close to well designed, intuitive, user-friendly software as I have ever seen. Photoshop and Illustrator have always been the industry standards, and here they are both improved - particularly the digital photographer will be happy with the new photo filters in Photoshop CS, and the much improved file browser and the new filter gallery are also excellent additions. As far as publishing programs are concerned, InDesign is a greatly more intuitive program than Quark at a fraction of its cost, and because its pallets function much the same as in Photoshop and Illustrator, it is an easily acquired program if you are familiar with Adobe software.

I use these programs on a Mac OS X platform and for me they are very stable. I have had none of the crashing problems or tech support difficulties that another reviewer of the Adobe Creative Suite has had. For anyone using many design programs at once, enough RAM is always a requirement for smooth operation. But if you have enough RAM and a Mac platform, you should have no significant problems at all. PCs crash more by their nature because their operating system is not as stable as a Mac's, but still Adobe products are not only more intuitive than Microsoft's (for example), they also will crash far less on a PC than most other types of software (like Microsoft's).

Photoshop and Illustrator have always defined the state of the art for photo editing and raster graphic software respectively, and here Adobe is carrying on the tradition. InDesign looks as though it is fast replacing Quark in the publishing industry as well, so if you are a creative professional you will be more than happy in the end to own the Adobe Creative Suite. What else would you use?

1-0 out of 5 stars i used to like adobe...
...then i needed to contact their technical support because illustrator crashes when you try to label layers. they go out of their way to make it as difficult as possible. no email support. instead you have to ring an area code 206 number and wait until some overworked undertrained person tells you to reinstall the product or the operating system... very helpful. just like their software.

i'll look elsewhere the next time i look for an illustration package or a graphics editor. and i won't even bother discussing their inept page layout program.

4-0 out of 5 stars glad I got it
I just bought it off of AMazon a week ago (which is the lowest price for the full version I have been able to find so far) and IM glad I did. For new people to the software, you may wanna stay with your older version for a bit and just get used to it before shelling out the money, but if your serious about design and making your workflow work to the max for you, this new collection is a must. Tight integration and the help of the version Cue additional file managment software will help even the messiest designer keep thier files inline. If design is what you want to do, then theres no better package to get. Ive been using Photoshop for years and Illustrator and Indesign for a while now and this is defenitly an inovation in design.
I gave it 4 stars due to small problems I had installing the whole suite at once. I have never had the problem with anything else and it was frustrating. But after that its smooth saling. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Home users who want to secure their Mac from unwanted intruders andvirus attacks will find Norton Internet Security 1.0 an invaluable package. Thecombination of a simple--yet effective--firewall, Norton's best-selling AntiVirusapplication, and iClean from Aladdin Systems which cleans up and removes unwantedWeb-related files, this software provides an integrated security solution for Mac users whospend much of their time online.

Installation is quick and easy, guiding you through checking your Mac forviruses before you install, and only requiring you to select the level of virusprotection you require. NortonAntiVirus 7.0 not only protects you from a huge list of viruses--includingMacro viruses, which are the most common form of virus on the Mac--but it evenscans e-mail attachments as you download them, allowing you to stop an infectedfile before it reaches your computer. Basic configuration of Norton AntiVirus 7.0 is simple, requiring you to simply select a protection level from "NoProtection," if you prefer to scan for viruses manually, to "Full Protection,"which not only scans all files and applications whenever you use them, but alsowatches for virus-like activity, which could indicate that you have a new virusthat is not in the database. Keeping the application and its essential virusdefinitions up to date is made simple by the LiveUpdate feature, which allowsyou to download new versions manually when you are online, or at scheduledtimes.

The most striking feature of NortonPersonal Firewall 1.0, also included, is its simplicity. Once you run thesoftware installer and restart your Mac, you are protected from all forms ofunauthorized access from the Internet, and that's practically all there is toit. Using Norton Personal Firewall 1.0 for the first time, it's surprising tosee just how many attempts are made to access your computer without yourpermission during an average session on the Net.

In its default configuration, the firewall blocks all access to your Mac by FileSharing over TCP/IP, Program Linking over TCP/IP, Web Sharing, and All Others.We found that setting all of these access types to Deny All Access caused someminor problems with services such as anonymous ftp. However, temporarilydisabling Norton Personal Firewall 1.0 only requires a single click on thefirewall control strip module. In addition, with the advanced preferences inNorton Personal Firewall 1.0, you can either list specific IP addresses, whichare allowed access to your Mac, or list the IP addresses, which may not haveaccess. Finally, Aladdin Systems iClean provides a quick and simple way to cleanout unwanted Internet-related files such as browser caches, cookies, and pagehistory files.

Mac users who spend much of their time online, and particularly those withalways-on Internet access such as ADSL and cable modems, will find this suite ofsecurity applications an effective way of maintaining peace of mind with minimumfuss. --Daniel Jardine ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars a "must-have" for Mac's connected to the internet
I bought an iBook and hooked it up to the internet on my cable modem at home via the airport card, and I must say it is a pleasure to surf the internet at home at these speeds. But when I got to work the next day and started telling people about this, everyone asked "Do you have a firewall?"

At first, owning firewall software seemed excessively cautious. Who would want to access my computer? But one person told me how there computer was 'hijacked' unbeknownst to him, and used in an internet denial-of-service attack. Another person, who has a firewall, told me that he couldn't believe how often his computer was 'probed', and how his firewall protected his computer.

So I bought this software on their advice, and it was a good investment. It is very easy to install and configure the firewall. And it comes with Norton Anti-virus, which is useful for preventing viruses. And it comes with Alladin iClean which is useful for cleaning up after an internet session -- you wouldn't believe all the cookies, caches, and history files that are created after a session.

This is good value for the money...and a must-have if your Mac is on the internet. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Whether you're looking to upgrade your current software or your existingskill set, the latest edition of Adobe FrameMaker is chock-full of usefulfunctionality that packs a punch. Those new to FrameMaker will find theinterface a bit underwhelming: unlike many other packages (from Adobe andotherwise), this software does not present dozens of buttons in the initialworkspace. Rather, a very modest few sit beneath the menu bar, and they aren'tterribly inviting. This means that users might overlook some features or growannoyed by having to hunt for a certain treatment that ensues.

Aside from the introductory shock, FrameMaker is unsurprisingly solid: version7.0 has integrated an improved FrameMaker with its FrameMaker+SGML cousin,creating a full-functioned document design and distribution tool. This versionis enterprise-ready, with tools that allow for distribution options that wehadn't even considered. FrameMaker is capable of compiling your documents into abook, mapping these out in the proper format (from table of contents to yourindex), and handling powerful graphic design and printing options, such aswhether to knock out or overprint color in graphics. The package handles bothconditional (content that changes from version to version) and variable text(text used in various places throughout the document) with sharp and easyaccuracy.

New to this version is the Quadralay WebWorks Publisher Standard Edition 7.0(WWPSE7), which provides robust features for creating HTML, Dynamic HTML, andXML output. WWPSE7 exports text, graphics, and tables to these formats, as wellas automatically generating cascading style sheets for the page. Among manyother functions, it can specify how navigation bars appear at the top and bottomof a page and map FrameMaker content to screen-reader output. Again, this toolworks with great refinement and is an impressive addition to the FrameMakerpackage.

If you work on a team, you'll appreciate Adobe's very friendly (and quitepowerful) features that make team-tagging a book project much easier. Definableoptions include choosing which documents to share, server access and setup, andfolder structures. Other revision management tools include the use of changebars (available both automatically and for selected revisions), word andcharacter count tools, and version comparison for both a summary of changes or acompletely merged document.

We also appreciated the supporting documentation: the 600-plus page user manualencompasses Windows, Macintosh, and Unix users, calling attention todifferences. The online version of the manual offers more information, althoughin a less handsome format. Also included is the XML Cookbook, a goodfirst-step manual for learning to work in structured work environments.

Overall, if you can get over any initial disappointment concerning theinterface, Adobe FrameMaker delivers a powerful authoring and publishingsolution. --Emilie Herbst ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Adobe's FrameMaker 6.0 allows any author or organization to print orpublish documents and books of virtually any size in a variety of electronicformats (including PDF, HTML, and XML). Whether you distribute reports,technical documents, or even full-length books, the latest version of FrameMakeroffers a powerful mix of features that will let you move your publishing effortsonline with a minimum of effort.

Just as Adobe once pioneered paper-based desktop publishing with its PageMaker software, FrameMaker makes the same claim for electronic publishing inthe Internet era. First and foremost, FrameMaker lets you lay out your pagecontent with a capable set of tools and wizards. You can assemble small or largedocuments of even hundreds of pages from separate files (which can be importedfrom Microsoft Word or WordPerfect files as well as PDF and other formats). Youcan also add hyperlinks and graphics to your document easily.

In testing, we assembled an "e-book" from a literary manuscript of over 200pages, broken into a dozen chapters. FrameMaker includes solid word-processingabilities--even a spell checker and thesaurus--plus text and graphics layouttools, so it was easy to add chapter headings and tweak text as we created thelarger document. A real strength here is that as you add pages, FrameMakerupdates all links (along with page numbers) between the table of contents,chapters, and index. The application includes a separate book file format andoffers templates for blank chapters and other book components, so you can createand store books easily. An absolutely indispensable feature here is the abilityto search and replace words across all sections of a document.

Another notable strength of FrameMaker 6.0 is its support for today's electronicpublishing standards. Once your FrameMaker documents are assembled, you candistribute them in HTML, PDF, and XML. A separate bundled utility, Quadralay'sWebWorks Publisher Standard Edition, takes you even further with support for XMLwith Cascading Stylesheets (CSS) and XSL. (These options let you view yourcontent with more precise formatting within today's browsers.) In all, with itsstrong mix of layout features and support for a wide variety of electronicstandards, FrameMaker will help anyone publish documents online successfully.--Rich Dragan--This text refers to the Windows version of thissoftware. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Getting a little outdated, but the best for long documents
The user interface hasn't changed much since Adobe bought FrameMaker from Frame Technology about 6 years ago. Aside from being integrated with Acrobat, Frame has not been brought into the Adobe fold with the other Adobe products.

This complaint aside, FrameMaker is still the best tool available for what it does best, long structured documents. Anyone that's tried to write a long technical manual in Microsoft Word will appreciate FrameMaker's ability to divide the document into logical chapters and tie them all together with its book function.

FrameMaker supports cross-references, integrated drawing commands and the ability to generate a number of lists and tables (tables of contents, tables of figures, alphabetical index, etc.) An integrated equation editor is also available for typesetting equations.

FrameMaker is not for the faint at heart; it requires a disciplined approach to your documents and planning before writing, but for the types of manuals that it was designed for, its still the best tool available at an affordable price. A variant product, FrameMaker+SGML provides SGML support for about half the cost of competing products.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Word Processor for Book Writers
Yes, it's more expensive than Word 98 or AppleWorks, two fine word processors that may provide all you need. Nevertheless, FrameMaker (called "Frame" by many users) is my tool of choice for working on book projects, from non-fiction to novels.

Why? Partly because Frame is fast, stable, and just a pleasure to work with. But that alone wouldn't justify the price. Frame's real power for writers comes from its Book feature, which uses a Book Window to display the chapters of a book. Chapters are worked on separately and saved as individual files, but Frame manages and presents them in the Book Window as part of a single book. You can add, delete, and edit chapters as you go without a problem, and Frame takes care of autonumbering your pages so that the page numbers in one chapter pick up where the last chapter left off. The Book Window also displays the total page count, a very helpful feature for writers who try to work by a daily quota, or just like to see constant progress being made (don't we all!).

Until you see the Book feature in action, it's hard to understand how useful it is, but if you've ever worked with a large document as a single file in Word, you'll appreciate Frame's ability to handle smaller, manageable sections of text that are all maintained as part of the same book.

As for fear that Frame is too hard to learn -- don't worry! The Book Window feature, and all basic word processing in Frame, is very easy, really no more difficult than any other word processor. The main difference is that instead of Styles, Frame uses Paragraph and Character "tags" that are stored in catalogues that you can access and modify at any time. Honestly, Frame's implentation of many formatting features, such as tags, master pages, and the ability to import all the formatting from one document into another, was much easier for me to learn than Word ever was. It all works and functions quite logically, if not intuitively, and you'll quickly get the hang of how Frame gets the job done. Once you catch on, you may find, as I did, that Frame is really much simpler, smarter, and more efficient than many other word processors.

Here's my advice. Buy a copy of FrameMaker 5.5.6 for Dummies -- it's available here on Amazon, and it's a great value. It's very well-written and organized, and includes much of what you need to know in the first 100 pages. Start there, then read the later chapter on working with Books, and you'll be ready to roll. Even better, demo versions are included on the CD-ROM (although the Mac version requires a demo serial # that you'll have to get from Adobe), so you can practice what you learn and decide if this product is right for you. Although version 6 adds some new and helpful features, it works almost exactly the same as v.5.5.6, so your time learning that earlier version is time very well spent.

Again, this is a professional writing and layout tool that anyone who has ever used any word processor can master very quickly. If you write novels or non-fiction books, give this a try! Once I started using it, I couldn't go back to a regular word processor for full-length book projects. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars New horizon
The CS series offers a great new horizon for Adobe products on OS X. As a designer at an extremely busy design agency, we have found the CS series to be a huge improvement. InDesign is proving to be the victor in the war with Quark. The massive diversity and ease of use of this program is paramount to cross media integration (print to web). These versions of Photoshop and Illustrator are simply the best. The usability of GoLive needs some tweaking, I much prefer Macromedia's Dreamweaver MX 2004. But all in all, hats off to Adobe!

5-0 out of 5 stars Just what you need for both the Web and Print!
Photoshop... Not much needed to be said about it! Not much out there with as much to compare it to.

Illustrator... I simply love this product! It is easy to use and the results port perfectly into the rest of the suite.

InDesign... It takes a little getting use to, but then, it is EXTREMELY easy to use. This one is finally very stable! It is actually fun mixing this with illustrator. The two work extremely well together and produce expectional results! Add a few Photoshop edited graphics to the mix and there is nothing to slow you down!

Version Cue... Haven't used this very much. Nice addition though.

GoLive... If you need an editor and you use Photoshop, This fits in really well.

The one thing that puts this set above all the rest is the integration of PDF across the entire platform and the interoperability between the product.

The down side is that they still need to work on a SINGLE interface. I like the way InDesign's interface works with the tool bars hugging the sides of the screens. I wish they would impliment that across all of the products. Still, in terms of pure functionality, it is really hard to beat this suite! ... Read more
