Poll Results: What was the first layout program you used?
Hey folks, it’s time once again to review the results of a poll and launch a new one.
This past month, we asked what was the first page layout program you used.
The results show that InDesignSecrets community has plenty of seasoned veterans who have been doing this kind of stuff for many years. The number one response was PageMaker, with just over 34% of the vote, followed by QuarkXPress at 22.5%. Less than one quarter of respondents started their page layout careers using InDesign. And less than 9% of respondents started with a Creative Cloud version of InDesign—about the same number who came from Microsoft Publisher.
Here’s a chart showing the results.
New poll: Do you grid?
Now it’s time to vote in our new poll (on the right side of the window), which asks how often you use a grid-based approach to designing page layouts. Let us know if you’re a grid guru, gridophobic, or somewhere in between.
