Dear colleagues:



I was asked to give a quote on a job sent to me by e-mail. I got a zipped file that when unzipped is called xxx.pmd. xxx.pmd didn\'t open automatically, and when I try to open it, the system asks me what application I want to use in order to open it (out of a list).

I would like to know what is a pmd file (I read about it on the web, but still don\'t know how to open it), and how can you open it, or what am I missing?

Thanks a lot,

Diana

PMD files Aug 11, 2002

Dear Diana,



PMD files are Pagemaker files. You should be able to open them with Pagemaker 6.5. However, I recommend to rename them to .p65.



Kindest regards

Most likely, it\'s a PageMaker 7 file.

(PageMaker document)



Obviously, you\'d need Pagemaker 7 installed on your system.

Thank you all! Aug 11, 2002

Hans-Gerhard, Bin, ramono and Carla, thanks for your answers to my question. I am already downloading a trial version of Pagemaker 7.

I must tell you I may be asking quite frequently for your advice in the near future, as I am doing my first steps in translating for overseas clients, and I have noticed I don\'t have all the required software and the knowledge I need. (Until now I have translated only for the local market).

I find this a very interesting stage in my career.

I hope in some way I can help you too, but it probably would be in another proz forum.

Regards,

Diana

Still having problems with the pmd file Aug 12, 2002

Dear colleagues:



Following the tips you gave me, I installed a one month trial version of Pagemaker 7 from Adobe.com.

I thought it was the end of my problems, but no. Now, when I try to open the file, I get a notice saying: \"Cannot open file.

This format file cannot be opened by this application\". Could it be that because the trial version doesn\'t include all the templates of the full version, I am having these problems?

I feel exhausted, and I probably won\'t get the job, but I want to get to the root of it, so it doesn\'t happen to me again.

Thank you in advance.

Diana
