If you create a publication in Microsoft Publisher on one computer and try and take that publication to another computer, you can potentially run into issues, such as font substitutions and missing graphics. In those cases you want to prepare your publication to take it to another computer to work on it. And we are going to use the Pack and Go Wizard again, but this time not for a commercial print house. With our resume open, we will just go to Backstage view by clicking the File tab and click Save and Send. Now in the Pack and Go group, you will notice there is another option here to save for another computer and when we select that, you will see it is just the Pack and Go Wizard.
There are no commercial print options to select here. So I will just click, and you will notice that the Pack and Go Wizard is about to pack your files to another computer. There are embedded fonts and linked graphics. They will all be packed together so that you can take that file to the other computer and not be missing anything when you go to work on it. So click Next. You get to choose your location. Again, I am going to go to the desktop, and I am going to click Next, and here I do have a few check boxes to choose from. We can include linked graphics and fonts in the publication.
Notice for me, Include Linked Graphics is already selected. We can embed the TrueType fonts and create links for the embedded graphics. I like to have them all selected before I click Next. And when you finish, the wizard is going to do a number of things. It is going to create that zip file. You can see the location we chose, and all of your check boxes will show up here as well. When you click Finish, if just takes a moment, the publication is successfully packed, and we will click OK and if you want to go see it, just go to the location.
In my case, I went to the desktop, Resume4, double-click it to open up, and there is the zip file that I can now take to another computer. Possibly copy it to a USB drive and just pop into the next computer, and I am ready to go. So if you do plan on working on your publications on more than one computer, consider using the Pack and Go to avoid those issues of missing fonts and graphics.
