xCurt Will this deal be including 'Pdf to Powerpoint', like a normal deal would?

Serif Hi there,

Thanks for your question. The answer is no, we cannot include the PDF to PowerPoint Converter in this deal as it is an exclusive bonus product for purchases. However as you can see this exclusive deal with Bits Du Jour offers a massive discount on PagePlusX6 - you'd be saving $50.00 compared to the website price.

Hitman Hello Serif, could you please kindly do a comparison between PagePlus and the open source Scribus, which is also of Pro grade?

Javier Gil I think it's a bit rude to request a product comparison between the product Serif is promoting here and a competing product, no matter what it is. I mean, you're talking about asking someone to give you his time for something you want.
We all know that there are many free products out there. Give them a try and decide for yourself, maybe you can do a review one day.
I just think it's very generous of Serif to offer big discounts for their products and having to do a product comparison of someone else's product.

Serif Hi Huidong,

Scribus is great value because it’s free, but in a real life comparison it falls short for professional work - it’s not as feature-rich or polished as PagePlus.

We haven't got a full comparison with this product, but here’s a mention of Scribus from the most recent PagePlus X6 review we know of, written by a computer club in the US last week. Hope it helps.

"I had been looking for a new page layout application to
replace my aging Microsoft Publisher 2007. I had found an
open-source offering called Scribus, but soon found it highly
buggy and incomplete for serious production work. A search
soon turned up PagePlus X6 and Serif; one look at it
convinced me that this was what I was searching for.

This is the third issue of the newsletter produced using
PagePlus. It is everything it says it is, and more. Simple to use,
but VERY powerful in what it can do for you. If you’re looking
for a publishing program to create professional grade printed
or electronic documents, this is the one to get."

Leo Valchi Is there a chance that this 50% off promo will be valid also for the upgrade price?
Apr 30 2012 at 3:20am Copy Link
Serif Hi Leo,

The 50% discount being offered here is currently higher than the upgrade discount offered to existing users.

As such, if you are an existing user, you will receive a larger discount purchasing this offer.

Leo Valchi Oh, i know... but i intended to ask if the today promo will be appliable to the yet discounted upgrade price... two discounts in line... i know it's probably asking too much... but i asked anyway.

Serif Hi Leo,

No unfortunately the 50% is not applied on top of the upgrade price.

Always worth checking though! :)

Hitman Thanks for mentioning the review. On Wikipedia there's a comparison chart:
So is it true that X6 does not support SVG, HTML importing?
And how about SVG output?
Apr 30 2012 at 11:22am Copy Link
Serif Hi Huidong,

The PagePlus X6 supports the import of SVG files but does not support the export.
The opposite applies for HTML. PagePlus X6 doesn't support HTML importing, but it does support HTML exporting.

Hitman Thank you. I wonder if these will be on your roadmap, or otherwise you have reasons not to fully support these filetypes?

xCurt @Huidong - why on earth should desktop publishing software import HTML, or export SVG??
Apr 30 2012 at 3:16pm Copy Link
Hitman @Curt If you know the web, many are designed like "pages", and they are of value as templates for page layout, just like the enormous number of templates built in PagePlus, that's the rationality for HTML importing. Regarding SVG, if you know this format, it is of great potential: open-source, XML-based, so it is ideal for those who don't want to deal with proprietary vector graphics formats, and want to have absolute control of the file, since it's XML. It's surprising that you don't see the value of SVG in desktop publishing. Regards.

Nico Westerdale Due to the overwhelming response Serif Ltd. has agreed to extend this deal for another day - Enjoy!

Yudha Yan Kusuma Is this $49.99 or EUR 49.99?

The order page charge me 49.99 in Euro, not in USD. Conversion rate doesn't count?
May 1 2012 at 2:11am Copy Link
Serif Hi Yudha,

We don't base our pricing across currency conversions on the exchange rate but pick set price points. Our pricing in Euros and USD is the same.
Serif Ltd. - May 1 2012 at 2:30am Copy Link
Michael Blankley In Australia that takes the price to $63.00AU even thoughthe USD and Australian dollar are almost parity. Sorry but I wont be purchasing if I'm being ripped off! All I want is the current exchange rate.
May 1 2012 at 5:33am Copy Link
Nico Westerdale Michael, I think you're mistaken, I just checked and it reads: Total price: 47.92 AUD.
BitsDuJour Admin - May 1 2012 at 5:34am Copy Link
Anon eMous You ... STILL ... never mention importing Wordperfect files ... and ... IF the formatting is maintained. grrrrrrrrr
May 1 2012 at 5:34am Copy Link
Michael Blankley Beg your pardon Nico, the price I have just been given is:
Subtotal: 63.39 AUD / 49.99 EUR
Total VAT: 0.00 AUD / 0.00 EUR
Total price: 63.39 AUD / 49.99 EUR

This was pasted from the purchase page. So what is going on. If you have one price and I have another?
May 1 2012 at 6:20am Copy Link
Nico Westerdale That's odd Michael, it might be because I'm in the US. BitsDuJour doesn't control the checkout, we just hand you off to the developer's shopping cart. Sorry about the problems here but there isn't much we can do. I'm sure Serif will respond with some clarification.
BitsDuJour Admin - May 1 2012 at 6:20am Copy Link
Serif Hi Michael

Apologies for the confusion. To apply our 50% discount we must select a fixed currency price to apply the discount to. On this occasion we have chosen our SRP in Euros and the conversion to Australian Dollars would be different to the price in USD.
If you can provide you can contact me directly on I will provide you with an alternative cart link with an amended price.

Hi Anon- PagePlusX6 is compatible with WordPerfect files, however will use Microsoft Word in the background to open and import the files. The limitations of this will depend on what version of Word you have installed. It would be difficult for us to say how much formatting would be maintained without seeing the files you want to import/open.

Hope this helps.

D T Can you provide URLs to some professional websites that were built with PagePlus?
May 1 2012 at 8:24am Copy Link
Serif Hi DT,

PagePlusX6 is primarily a desktop publishing software - so we cannot provide you with links to websites created with PagePlusX6. However within the software you can create websites and export as HTML files, with the capabilities of adding interactive media and hyperlinks. But if you wanted more advanced adaptations you would need a Web Design software- our award winning product in this line is WebPlusX5.

Hope this helps.

Tim Krafcik Where can I read the software license. My Photoshop license allows me to install on a home and a laptop as long as they are not used concurrently. This is handy because I do a lot of real estate fliers on the road. Thanks.

Nico Westerdale We always show the license details on the right under the "Policy" tab Tim.
