Publisher 2010 Advanced
Microsoft Office Publisher 2010 is a desktop publishing program aimed at small to medium businesses. This new version of Publisher incorporates native support for PDF files, a variety of new font and color schemes, an expanded shape gallery, new WordArt effects, and improved image editing capabilities.
This Advanced level is intended to help everyday users of Publisher become more familiar with complex and specialized features. This manual will help more experienced users who have little to no experience with Publisher 2007 and/or the ribbon interface. This manual will also help users understand how to create a large and complex publication by breaking it into individual parts and taking advantage of automated features.
This manual will cover tools for making a publication consistent, ways to enhance existing fonts, and different types of Building Blocks. This manual also covers mail, e-mail, and catalog merges; specialized tools such as the Graphics Manager and Design Checker; and terminology and tools used by commercial printers. By the end of this manual, users should be comfortable with making a consistent, correct, and attractive publication, from simple birthday invitations to multi-page product catalogs.
This manual was created using Microsoft Office Professional Plus SP1. Our test machine was a 32-bit computer using Windows 7 Ultimate. If you are an instructor, you can use any version of Windows that is accessible to your students. Any feature specific to Windows 7 in this manual will be marked as such.
Occasionally, this manual may reference where certain keys are on the keyboard (such as Insert, Home, or Page Up). The directions are given based on a standard desktop keyboard that contains a separate number pad. Laptop keyboards may be different or have combined keys.
This manual presumes that the user has a basic knowledge of Windows, including concepts such as using the mouse and keyboard. It also presumes that the user has completed the Intermediate level of this course (or has equivalent knowledge) and is familiar with concepts such as using business information sets and templates; using everyday formatting tools; working with shapes, tables, and WordArt; and using images in a publication.
