Today's post on the reduction in web publication capability in Publisher 2010 comes to us from Jeff Bell. Jeff was the Group Program Manager for Publisher and Text Services during the development and release of Publisher 2010.
For a number of versions, Publisher has filled a gap as an easy-to-use web site authoring tool sitting between the template-based web-hosted offerings and the designer-oriented desktop HTML editors. With Publisher 2010, we sharpened our focus to deliver great experiences and results for print, PDF and XPS, and email output. As part of this focus, we have removed the ability to author new web sites from the Publisher catalog. Here's why...
Oh yeah, the NFL pre-season is over, the college season started last weekend, and the NFL season starts tomorrow when the New Orleans Saints travel to Green Bay to play the champion Packers. No doubt you'll want to have a party tomorrow or maybe this weekend. Office can help.
Here we are just days away from New Year's Day, and that means we need new calendars. As many of you know, Publisher makes quick work of creating personalized calendars. In this post I show how to make a new calendar or update an old one in Publisher 2010 and 2007. (This also works in Publisher 2003.)
The quickest way to start is to find and adapt a calendar template that's close to what you want. You can choose from the 2011 calendar templates for Publisher. However, these templates are written specifically for calendar year 2011 and in a year you won't be able to easily update your 2011 calendar for 2012. If you want to be able to re-use your calendar next year, I suggest that you start with one of the calendar templates that are installed with Publisher. When you open Publisher you are shown a catalog of templates to choose from to create a new publication. The catalog is divided by category, such as Calendars, and whether the templates are installed on your computer or available to be downloaded from Office.com. For calendars, the Office.com templates tend to be designed for specific years, while the Installed Templates are not specific and can be configured for the year or specific months within the year.
Crop marks, also known as trim marks, are lines printed in the corners of your publication's sheet or sheets of paper to show the printer where to trim the paper. They are used by commercial printers for creating bleeds where an image or color on the page needs to extend all the way to the edge of the paper. Printers generally can't actually print to the very edge of the paper, so instead they print on a larger sheet of paper and then trim it down to the correct size. Crop marks are used to define where to trim. So, to print crop marks, you must print on a paper size that is larger than the page size you have set for your publication.
Much, maybe most, of what we do in Publisher is designing and laying out our publications. Aligning text boxes, pictures, borders, and clip art to make a pleasing and compelling presentation. The tools for laying out your publication are margins, guides, and align. Today I'm going to talk about margins and guides.
The job market is tough right now. There are lots of people out there looking for work, so if you're one of them, it's crucial that you get your resume noticed. One way to do this is by making use of graphics instead of just text. While Publisher is your best Office app for building graphics-heavy resumes, our Publisher resume templates tend to use graphics for decoration. What if you want to really stand out by using the graphics AS your resume? What am I talking about? Well, here are a couple of examples from Randy Krum's excellent blog Cool Infographics:
January is the biggest month for starting wedding planning. It's time to start thinking about sending out Save-the-dates or even invitations. Publisher is a great resource for the Do-It-Yourself couple, offering a variety of templates to help you get started publishing Save-the-Dates and invitations now, wedding programs for your big day, and even a photo album to preserve the memories.
Calendars are always a hot search term for Publisher users. You want to create yearly calendars, school calendars, insert calendars into newsletters, and put calendars on business cards. Here's how you can do all those things.
new additions to Publisher 2010 is the advanced OpenType typography capability. It enables you to add ligatures, stylistic and contextual alternates, swashes, and numbering styles. If you're unfamiliar with typographic terms, take a look at this Beginners Guide to OpenType before we examine some of these features.
Counting the words in your publication is a little problematic--you have to use Publisher's Edit Story in Microsoft Word function to get a count of the words in your stories...well, you can also just count them by hand..."One word, Two words, Three words...hahaha..I love it!"
In Publisher 2003 and 2007, you select the story and, on the Edit menu, select Edit Story in Microsoft Word. In Publisher 2010, you have to first customize the ribbon or your Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) to show the Edit Story in Microsoft Word button.
