Desktop Publishing Software

There are five general types of software used for desktop publishing. These programs make up your desktop publishing toolbox.

Word Processing

Word processing programs such as Microsoft Word and Corel WordPerfect are used to type and edit text, check spelling and grammar, and format text. These programs are best suited for working with words, not for page layout. Word processing programs can be used in conjunction with page layout software to create text and then export it to the page layout program. Figure 20-1 shows a simple desktop publishing layout created in Microsoft Word.
