Hi and welcome to Publisher 2010 Essential Training! I'm David Rivers. Microsoft Publisher has evolved over the years, and Publisher 2010 is more robust, more powerful, and easier to use than ever. If you need to lay out graphics- intensive documents that are specifically designed for publication, Publisher 2010 is the right program for you. We'll begin with a tour of the new and improved fluent user interface, focusing mainly on the Ribbon, the Quick Access toolbar, and Backstage view.
Then it's on to the basics of creating publications from scratch, whether they be blank or preformatted publications using one of the many templates available to you here in Publisher 2010. You can create your own graphical objects or insert existing objects, so we'll spend a great deal of time working with all types of objects, from how to insert them properly to manipulating and formatting them to make them look their best. We'll get into more complex functionality when we start customizing the layout and design of our publication.
This will involve the use of master pages, backgrounds, templates, and building blocks. Of course, publications are usually made to be shared, so we'll discuss ways to send out publications using mail merge functionality for mass mailings, using traditional mail and even e-mail. So with so many topics to cover, let's get started.
