Desktop Publishing Software Tools

Most desktop publishing software share certain common tools. They allow you to arrange and format text and graphics. Of course, each program has its own procedures, but there are four basic tools that almost all desktop publishing programs have available: Selection, text, graphics, and magnification. You will find these tools in your program's toolbox.

Selection

The selection tool, also known as the pointer, is the most basic tool in any desktop publishing application. It is usually represented by an arrow and is used to select one or more page elements and move them around on the page. The selection tool can also be used to resize page elements.
