Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the scratch area for inserting images, part of Office 2013 New Features.
I really like this next feature in Publisher 2013. It's called the Scratch Area.…That is the area outside your page in a publication. We can use this area.…Think of placing multiple objects in the scratch area …and then dragging them onto the appropriate pages in your publication.…It works great with images for example.…Now, anything we place on the scratch area will be invisible unless it's turned on.…So, let's go first to the View tab as we continue to work with our …No Obstacles Publication.…From here, you'll see in the Show section a checkmark in the check box by default next to Scratch Area.…
That way, we'll be able to see the objects that we place in this area.…Otherwise, with it deselected, they'll be invisible.…They'll still be there. It's just we won't be able to see them.…It must be checked off.…Next, we're going to go to the Insert tab. Let's go there and insert some pictures.…Click Pictures and if you have the exercise files, go to the Publisher folder…where we do have a couple of logos.…
