HP Designjet 755CM Printer - Using PANTONE(R)* with Adobe (R) PageMaker v 5.x and 6.x Software in Microsoft (R) Windows

Palettes have been provided for Adobe PageMaker 5.x. They were copied by the installation program and placed on the hard disk (default location C:\HPANTONE\PAGEMAKR). The files should be moved to the directory that PageMaker uses to store color palettes:
  • PageMaker 5.x default directory for color palettes is C:\PAGEMAKR\CUSTOM
  • PageMaker 6.x default directory for color palettes is C:\PAGEMAKR\RSRC\COLOR
You can move these files using the Windows File Manager program.
The following procedures assume that the files have been moved and the drawing is open in PageMaker.
