More Zine Stuff (Mostly Whining)

While working out the details of the new potential 'zine layout, I once again found myself frustrated with the tools at my disposal. Appleworks is nice because you can save files as PDFs without the necessity of AdobeWriter and you can create boxes with rounded edges. However, it's not flexible enough for me to create the overall look I am going for.

Word is certainly more flexible, and I can manipulate it to do just about anything I want layout-wise -- except for rounded boxes and a built-in PDF converter. Of the two programs, Word remains my program of choice, but the fact is I am not really happy with either program. The funds to purchase Acrobat and InDesign are still well out of my meager reach, so for now I'm still forced to make do with what I have and left praying that I can get Adobe installed on my work computer.
