What Does Publisher Do Best?

If you think that Publisher 2000 doesn't quite fit into the rest of Office very well, you have good reason: It doesn't. Beneath a veneer of interface compatibility, Publisher duplicates many of the features found in Word, yet works in a way that's completely different from the rest of Office.

Experienced Office users should approach Publisher with the understanding that it can't handle many tasks they take for granted. For example, you can open only one Publisher document at a time—a trait that makes copying and pasting between documents painful. You can save a Publisher document as a Web page, but you can't turn around and open the page with Publisher. You can use the Drawing Layer, but only after you've inserted a drawing object in the document. Publisher has no Office Clipboard, and so on.
