PageMaker was the first major desktop publishing application for personal computers, first released in 1985 by Aldus. With the advent of PostScript, users were able to create their own multi-page documents that combined text and graphics. Though PageMaker was overtaken by QuarkXPress in the early 1990s as the industry standard, Adobe took over PageMaker when it bought Aldus in 1995. Though Adobe's primary page-layout application is now InDesign, PageMaker is still part of Adobe's product line.
