Part: VIII Publishing Eye-Catching Docum... > Publishing with Flair Using Publishe...

Hour 23. Publishing with Flair Using Publisher 2003

This hour introduces Publisher 2003 and shows you how to create eye-catching publications within Publisher. Also, you'll learn how to turn documents you created in other Office products into polished, professional publications. Publisher 2003 is the latest in a series of Publisher versions that Microsoft has produced over the years. In keeping with Publisher's tradition, Publisher offers new and simpler ways of producing documents that look better than ever before.

Publisher was the first product to offer wizards, the technology that everyone familiar with Microsoft products has used. You've worked with wizards throughout this book and you know how wizards can help guide you through the document-creation process. Publisher actually starts its wizards for you and creates sample publications that you then can edit to suit your own needs. Publisher creates samples for almost any publication you need; you'll rarely have to create a document from scratch again. Once you create a publication, Publisher generates the initial publication and you then can begin your work to change that publication's specific elements.

The highlights of this hour include

  • Why you might use Publisher (as opposed to Word) for your publications

  • How to use the Publisher's sample technology to create initial publication designs

  • When to add details to the publication's design

  • Why use a text box to hold text you'll need to edit later

  • How to make text flow from one newsletter column to another, even if that column appears on another page
