In Publisher 2010 Essential Training, author David Rivers demonstrates how to create professional publications, such as brochures, newsletters, and menus. Using real-world examples, the course includes an overview of the different types of publications available in Publisher, shows how to use Publisher's tools for modifying text, objects, and tables, and explains how to customize layout and design options. Tutorials on performing mail merges and preparing publications for the web and for print are also included. Exercise files accompany the course.
These days information is often viewed online, over the web, so it's good to know here, in Publisher 2010, you can create web-based versions of your publication, so they're ready to be posted on a web site, for example. We're going to use our Science Fair publication here, and to save it in a web-based format, all we do is go to Backstage view by clicking the File tab and choose Save As. Now we can choose a location. We can choose a name. What's really important is that we choose the right type. I'm going to put mine on the desktop, where it's easy to find. I'm going to keep the same name, but the Save As type dropdown is where you'll find those web-based format, such as a Single File Web Page, and that's all you're going to end up with is a single document, for example, that could be posted on a web site. Or you could go to a Filtered web Page, which is going to create a folder with all the necessary items that would be required for posting it on a web site, such as the graphics, and so on.
So let's try a Single File Web Page. You'll see the format's about to be changed here. When we click Save, it actually happens quite quickly. And now we're still in Publisher looking at the original publication in its original format, but all we need to do now is go to the location, where we stored our new web-based format. You'll see it there, ScienceFair, and when we double-click, your default browser should open up and display the web- based version of your publication. You can see it looks pretty much as it did in Microsoft Publisher.
So, all you need to know is, if you need to share something via the web, and you want it to be viewed online, use Save As and choose the appropriate web-based format.
