    For several years I have published a newsletter for the local Lions Club using Publisher. I currently have a partitioned hard drive with my Publisher and newsletter files on the Windows side of my MacBook Pro. I constantly run into frustrating problems trying to move photos, save files and print across platforms.
    Is there a Mac program that would read my Publisher files so that I could work with my same template on the Mac side? Will Mac Office 2011 recognize Publisher files produced on the Windows side?

    No, Office 2011 does not include Publisher.

    The page layout programs I am aware of for both Windows and Mac are Scribus, Quark, and Adobe Pagemaker. Last I checked, Pagemaker can also open Publisher files. Scribus is free open source software.

    orale mango. What it is? I just received a an imac as a gift. I have a trial of iworks and am using pages 09. It is not a bad program but it has to learn to stuff that it seems is impossible. Is there such a thing as pagemaker for my imac? Thanks

    While PageMaker does exist for Mac, its not exactly that useful if you have a Mac made in the last 5 years, since PageMaker 7.0 for Mac (The last version) only runs under Mac OS 9 - no Mac OS X version was ever made. And Mac OS 9 applications can only be run on PowerPC based Macs (Last one sold about 5 years ago).

    Publisher is the worst. If you need them, run a VM of Windows.
