what versions of pagemaker will work on windows 8

Good Day.... sorry about the delay in responding.

I've yet to see Pagemaker 7 not work on Windows 7/8, nor have I heard of any reports of PM 6.5 failing to function properly. The Microsoft compatability guide does not show a problem with Pagemaker.

There are some quirks to the Pagemaker program itself which you might have noticed with fonts and some spacing issues. A lot of how Pagemaker ultimately functions depends on the printer driver you 'select' when creating a new document. While the Pagemaker application may function correctly, you have to ensure that you have the most current printer driver for the Windows you are installing to.

Remember, also, that no 'legacy application' will install to the new Surface RT.
Hope this answers your question! If not, please let me know.

Thank you, and I apologize again for the delay in replying.
