Chapter 16. Word Desktop Publishing > Planning Your Document

Planning Your Document

Before you start using Word's desktop publishing tools, consider quickly sketching out a preliminary layout by hand, especially if there are specific ways you want to lay out information or if you're using any kind of graphic such as logos, clip art, or photographs. Getting your ideas on paper, even roughly, can give you a better idea of what size your images should be, how large you can make your headings, and how much room you'll have for your basic text.

NOTE

When you plan a document, start by asking yourself what is the key message you're trying to communicate. Make sure that the headlines, graphics, and choice of typography work together to support that message. For example, don't use the Comic Sans typeface to promote investment services.
