    I'm a new mac convert looking for a free (or cheap) dtp / page layout program to do a newsletter / brochures etc for my church. I've read about ragtime solo but unfortunately this appears to no longer be free. On the PC I have used Scribus and found it to be good except when trying to do tables (which I just couldn't get to work properly). I've been tearing my hair out trying to install Scribus on my new mac so want to try something else...

    Thanks for reading this - your help is much appreciated...

    Yes I have tried the pages trial that came with my new Imac. I liked it but was hoping for something a little more powerful. I found it struggling a bit with a fairly simple double sided booklet I put together - but of course this may just be because I am used to different ways of doing things in Scribus and Quark on the PC.

    It may just be that I end up going the Pages route though. Thanks for your help.
