Lesson 4. Using Design Sets and Templates > Selecting the Design Set

Selecting the Design Set

You select the design set for your new publication from the Publisher Catalog, which appears when you start Publisher or when you start a new publication from the File menu. To select a design set for a new publication, follow these steps:

  1. Start Publisher using the Start menu, or if you are already in the Publisher window, click the File menu and then click New.

  2. If you are asked to save changes to any current publication, click Yes to save the changes, or click No to clear the publication from the Publisher window. The Publisher Catalog appears.

  3. Click the Publications by Design tab. The Design Sets pane and the Master Sets preview window appear, as shown in Figure 4.1.

    Figure 4.1. The Publications by Design tab of the Publisher Catalog enables you to create publications with a unified design.

  4. The design sets are listed in the Design Sets pane on the left side of the Publisher window. There is a master design set for business publications, and there are specialty design sets including Special Event Sets and Holiday Sets. To expand one of the set categories, such as the Master Sets or the Special Event Sets, click the set category. The design sets under that particular category appear.

  5. To view the publications included in a particular design set, click the set in the Design Set pane. A preview of the publications in the set appears in the Master Sets window (see Figure 4.2).

    Figure 4.2. Each design set contains several different publication masters that embrace the same design elements.

  6. After you preview the various design sets that include the type of publication you want to create (such as a brochure or business cards), select the design set in the design set list.
