"Building Booklet" option in Pagemaker...where is it in Indesign? - Adobe Indesign Windows

I own Pagemaker, Illustrator, Photoshop and Indesign, also streamline. I just didn't buy them in a "Suite" Lord knows Adobe has enough of my money, they should supply the plug-in, instead $50 a pop for plug ins!...

    I'm sorry, it sounds to me like you are saying their hard work isn't worth anything. I can think of a few reasons why they would charge a mere $50.

    1. The company is paying people to make these insignifigant plug-ins.
    2. They're in this business for the money and continue making it.
    3. If you think it took minutes or that it's so easy to make such a plug-in you should make your own.
    4. You own all that and you didn't get the Creative Suite? Only "Lord knows" why.
    5. Adobe loses millions of dollars per year on people who pirate their software.
    6. $50 is less than most people here in California, USA pay for one trip to the gas station to fill their SUV up with gasoline. At nearly 3 US dollars per gallon for premium, go figure.

    Shall I continue?

    Same could be said for any other feature. Why don't they charge extra for, say, paragraph styles? Or corner effects?

    2. They're in this business for the money and continue making it.




    Hoo-eee, ain't that the truth! That's why they still sell PageMaker to unsuspecting neophytes.

    3. If you think it took minutes or that it's so easy to make such a plug-in
    you should make your own.




    Relevance?

    4. You own all that and you didn't get the Creative Suite? Only "Lord
    knows" why.




    Gee, maybe he couldn't afford them all at once. Or maybe he didn't develop a need for them all at the same time. Or maybe he needed the CS features on some and not on others.

    5. Adobe loses millions of dollars per year on people who pirate their
    software.




    So what? They make millions of dollars a year selling software that on the one hand they admit is obsolete and on the other market as an "ideal solution."

    6. $50 is less than most people here in California, USA pay for one trip
    to the gas station to fill their SUV up with gasoline.




    And it's more than some families in the Third World have to subsist on for a month or more. What has either got to do with software?

    Bottom line: Adobe is in essence forcing people to upgrade from PageMaker to InDesign (if not today, surely once the next major Windows OS appears). Then you have your choice: buy the full suite, which you may not need, or cough up an extra $50 to restore basic functionality that you lost in the PageMaker->InDesign transition. If Microsoft did that, imagine the howls!

    There are free scripts for building booklets that work very well. Take a
    look on Adobe Exchange.
