Hi all - I am looking for a recommendation for Software to make simple signs, brochures, etc on the Apple Mac. (Like MS Publisher on Windows)
I have tried Pages and Word for MAc ... both are "combination" Word processors and allow you to place Graphics ... I do not want a "Word Processor" combo, as they always want to move around the objects from where you place them. (Hope that makes sense)

If your doing a bit then I would seriously look at Adobe Indesign, if you're not interested in that then check out

First word in your post is SIMPLE

I would definitely consider Pages which is part of Apple's iWork Suite.

This program has some great brochure templates. The program is very easy to learn. You could literally build something pretty decent in 20 minutes if you have the content ready.

PS. I completely agree about Word. Word blows for page layout.

But pages works like a layout program. Use Text boxes rather than typing on the page itself. That may solve your problem of text moving around.
