Enhancing Your Publisher Documents

  • The use of business information sets, templates, and design gallery objects helps you get a jump start on creating publications.

  • Enhancing Publisher projects with your own pictures and text is fun, easy, and provides a way for you to create attractive and professional-looking publications.

Understanding guides l.jpg

Understanding Guides

  • Publisher has many types of layout guides to help you position objects in a publication. Each template has guides already in place, depending on the type of template you are using, including margin guides, grid guides, column guides, row guides, and baseline guides.

  • You can create your own guides by simply placing the pointer over the horizontal or vertical ruler.

  • The master page is a background page that includes placeholders for text and graphics as well as layout guides.

  • Simply press the Ctrl+M keys to switch to the master page.

Entering Text

  • Using Publisher templates, you can add text directly into text boxes or panel headings. A panel heading is the area provided for the title or heading of a project or section of a project.

  • The page navigator, located in the lower-left side of the window, allows you to move quickly from one page to another when you are adding text to your publication.

Working with Objects

  • Text boxes, shapes, clip art, and pictures are all objects. When you right-click an object, a menu appears that includes the “Format” command.

  • The Arrange menu has many important features for manipulating objects. For example, using the Align and Distribute commands, you can align objects by their tops, bottoms, centers, and left or right sides.

  • You’ll find the Group, Ungroup, and Regroup commands on the Arrange menu.

  • In Publisher, you also have the ability to stack or layer items using the Order commands.

  • Create a text box as a placeholder to put your text into. Click Insert on the menu bar, and then click Text File. Once you find the text file you want, click OK, and the text falls right into place.

Using Find and Replace

  • Publisher templates come with text box placeholders. You can add text directly into text boxes or panel headings. When you have entered text, it’s best to zoom in on the text so that you can easily modify it.
