Would that be Ventura Publisher by any chance?
Gosh, I have that (version 8) so I can do
conversions if you're stuck.
In response to a message last week (sorry, busy
week, friend and photojournalist colleague had
bit if leg blown off in Geneva of all places):
I think the appropriate-technology solution to
the PDF problem is this:
1) Install a PostScript printer on your computer.
I find "Xerox PostScript 45nn Level 2" works
2) Print the paper to that. Say it's "Issue2.ps"
Since you don't actually have one of those,
it'll offer to print it to a file. (In some
programs or when installing some printer
drivers you may have to to explicitly ask
to print to file. I forget how I did it.
3) Get GhostScript and GhostView from
3.1) Open "Issue2.ps" in GhostView
3.2) Under File select Convert
3.3) Under Device select PDF write
3.4) Under Resolution... pick one. 600, say.
3.5) OK and give it a file-name ("Issue2.pdf") and
a minute or three later, you're done. Without
paying lots of money to Adobe.
It would be more robust to do the above a page
at a time to separate files.
4.1) Put the resulting "Issue2.ps" file somewhere
where someone like me who already has
GhostScript can get at it.
4.2) Also, the fonts you used. BOTH TrueType and
"Type 1" would be good.
