Exclamation Serif launches PagePlus X7!

Serif is delighted to launch PagePlus X7 – the latest version of the number one* desktop publisher. It's the perfect companion for promoting your business, club, or charity, documenting your hobby, producing information to share, and keeping your personal correspondence in perfect order! Use our versatile and easy-to-use software to create posters, flyers, business cards and other promotional materials, save and edit PDF files, produce handouts, publish eBooks and so much more.

Here's a breakdown of the new features and some helpful links...
  • Charts - Use data from spreadsheets or PagePlus tables to create attractive charts, in 2D and 3D styles with plenty of formatting options.

  • Startup Assistant - A new, dynamic entry point to PagePlus, bringing the latest news, tutorials and more plus a lightning-fast template and document browser, with new search and filter functions throughout.

  • 64-bit version - This is a welcome addition for PagePlus, enabling the full use of more powerful computer systems with greater amounts of RAM to better support large, long, or complex documents.

  • AGT (Accelerated Graphics Technology) - Behind the catchy name is a brand new rendering engine for PagePlus that gives you better performance and greater accuracy - for text, on-screen colours, and colour-managed workflows.

  • Flowing tables - Flow data between tables on multiple pages with repeating row or column headers, flowing downwards, rightwards, between tables on the same page, and sharing AutoFormat styles. And enjoy easier cell formatting, too.

  • Blend Modes - Combine images, textures, colours, text in new and interesting ways to create professional designer effects.

  • New workspace controls - A refreshed workspace with new tab docking controls means you can further tweak PagePlus to suit your preference and be even more efficient. There is also a new tab for Effects so you don't have to use a dialog, and new tabs for Charts and Chart Data.

  • Smart hints - Handy hints and tips that are aware of what tools and objects you're using, which pop up in the corner of the screen and subtly fade away moments later. If you wish they can be reduced in frequency, dismissed individually or turned off en masse.

  • New drawing controls - Apply fills and transparencies to lines and whole groups with more flexibility, and benefit from a new Convert to... option that allows node editing of vector art while maintaining text as editable text.

  • New export power - A new Export Optimizer gives a dynamic preview of your selected object, objects, region, or page with your chosen file export settings, showing an estimated file size and side-by-side comparison of up to 4 different image exports. Also includes SVG as a new export format, Super Sampling for the highest quality raster images, and the ability to export a multi-page publication as a collection of images in one operation.

  • Improved digital publishing - Last but not least, the much-requested PDF/X-3 makes a proud appearance in PagePlus X7, so you can export to a wider range of modern printers and publishers. Plus, PagePlus X7's eBooks pass validation in the popular EPUBCheck utility, used during eBook submission by some online book stores, so authors can publish to even more outlets.
