Introduction

After you create a publication in Microsoft Office Publisher 2003, you can modify any design element you see. Each element in a publication is enclosed in a frame. The frame serves as a container to hold objects, such as a block of text, a picture, or a graphic element you've created yourself. If you created a publication using the task pane, you see placeholder text, which you replace with your own text in the frame. You can add more elements by adding new frames. For example, to add a new heading (or some other text) to a brochure, you create a text frame. To add a graphic, you create a picture frame and then insert a graphic. You create new frames using the corresponding frame tool located on the toolbar at the left side of the window. After you create a frame, you can move it or change its size to allow for more text (in the case of a text frame) or a larger or smaller image (as in a picture frame). You can rotate frames or change their order when you want to place different pictures or text on top of, or behind each other. And with the Design Gallery you can add ready-made elements such as banners, business cards, calendars, newsletters, and signs.

If you already know how to use Microsoft Word's text and picture frames, you'll be on familiar ground with Microsoft Publisher's frames. If using frames is new to you, you will find working with frames a snap to learn.
