Create visually compelling publications
Publisher 2010 provides a broad range of new and improved tools that help you look like a design genius and create content that's sure to impress.

  • Use improved picture-editing tools--including the ability to pan, zoom, and crop your images and picture placeholders--that make it a snap to replace images while preserving the layout of your page. Easily fine-tune every picture to help your publication look its absolute best.
  • Design and reorganize pages like a pro with new object alignment technology. This technology provides visual guides to help you effortlessly align and position your content, but it always leaves the final layout up to you.
  • Create dynamic publications in very little time when you insert and customize prebuilt building blocks of content, both built-in and from the Publisher community, directly from Publisher 2010. Choose from an array of page parts--such as sidebars and stories--as well as calendars, borders, advertisements, and more.
  • Give your text the appearance of expert typesetting with new OpenType typography. Publisher 2010 provides support for the ligatures, stylistic sets, and other professional typography features available in many OpenType fonts. Use built-in or custom OpenType fonts to create text as impactful as images with just a couple of clicks.1

Manage your publications better with easy-to-use tools
It's much easier to create and manage your publications when you can work the way you want.

  • The extraordinary new integrated print experience in Publisher 2010 enables you to view a full-page print preview with a host of page layout tools and adjustable print settings. The new print experience is just one of many features available from the new Microsoft Office Backstage view. Backstage view replaces the traditional File menu to provide a centralized, organized space for all of your publication management tasks.
  • The improved, customizable Ribbon is now available in Publisher to make easily accessible the commands you need most. Create custom tabs or even customize built-in tabs. With Publisher 2010, you're in control.

Share your publications with confidence
When it's time to share your publication, Publisher 2010 leaves nothing to guesswork.

  • Compile, edit, and manage your customer or contacts list directly in Publisher, using the easy and efficient Mailings tab on the Publisher 2010 Ribbon.
  • Access the Design Checker from the new Backstage view to automatically review your publication for many common errors before you share it. Get options for fixing them quickly and easily. Then, return to Backstage view when the publication is ready to go and save it to whatever format you need for easy sharing--from PDF or XPS to a range of image formats, such as JPEG or PNG.

Whether you're working on your monthly newsletter, designing a new postcard, creating greeting cards, or developing a marketing campaign for your business, Publisher 2010 helps you create the content you need more quickly, with more flexibility, and with better results.

1 The new typography tools may be used only with OpenType fonts that have the ability to support them, such as Gabriola, Candara, Cambria, Calibri, and others.

I originally wrote this up on Amazon.ca a few days ago and thought that, since most readers would not go to the Canadian site, this review would be helpful posted here for a larger audience.

After spending approximately 40 hours working in the 2010 version of the program (we have been using this product since the 2003 version), here are my initial observations:

PROS
1. It is definitely more stable and it is more integrated into the Office suite
2. It has lots of little additions that make using it much easier - for example, it has no problems with a bilingual document and switches keyboard, language and speller seamlessly. Changing pictures is a snap and you can link an Excel table to Publisher - change numbers in Excel and when you open Publisher, it updates your Excel tables. Excellent.
3, It is much easier to use than a real publishing solution such as InDesign, which has a really steep learning curve and costs about $1K more per license. If you know Word, you can use this product. Everyone in your business can use Publisher, while very few will have the knowledge to use a professional desktop publishing software solution such as InDesign by Adobe. This is a really big advantage from both a cost and time perspective.
4. The learning curve is very low, especially if you are already familiar with the Ribbon.
5. Contrary to popular belief and snickering on the part of printing houses and so-called experts, Publisher does a very good job at creating documents for printing at a professional printing house - it has Pantone and CMYK built into it and an excellent commercial printing wizard - our documents are of the quality of, for example, The Missing Manual series, using full colour.

I have been using Publisher for about 10 years and have come to rely on it, primarily for business documents such as training guides and promotional items for my software business. I think that the 2010 Version of Publisher is a worthwhile upgrade from previous versions.

I happen to be one of the people who like the "Ribbon" interface that was introduced in MS Word 2007 and has now been extended to Publisher. I can easily find most common tools and features on the ribbon and customize it as required if there is a ribbon element missing from those I use frequently. There is a much improved "File" tab (or "Backstage View" as MS calls it) with easier access to various printing, saving and sending options. Unlike another review I read here, I had no problems whatsoever printing both paper and .PDF versions of my Publisher documents on both my Xerox and Epson printers with zero configuration*. In fact, printing is improved as there is now top-level control over things such as duplexing (double-siding- if your printer supports it) without having to set a default printer for a document and then go into the Printer Properties to select features. There is also a great new, accurate and large print preview right next to all of the Publisher printer controls.

Other improvements include better font previews including support for OpenType fonts. I find that the layout tools are improved too, with better accuracy and display of the alignment of various document elements. There are some great new templates and more available online. Photo/graphic editing tools are also improved, and the whole program just seems easier to work with while it works better for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Program July 19, 2010
A Kid's Review
Platform for Display:PC Disc
I've used Publisher for about 10 years and upgraded to 2010 from 2000. I definately recommend the upgrade to anyone using 2000. Although I've used the program for a long time it has been for the same purpose, writing a monthly newsletter that includes text and photographs and is emailed in pdf format. The improvements in Publisher make my job much easier and faster. For example, I can save my file as a pdf and Publisher compresses files as well as the Adobe Acrobat Professional program I was using for that purpose. The difference is Publisher is faster. In fact, the program seems much more responsive than 2000 for pretty much everything I do. I'm not a big fan of the "ribbon" interface but I like using one standard interface and since I have Office 2007 this program provides that continuity. In terms of function, the ribbon makes most things a little easier and a few things a little harder. That said, I have 10 years with the old interface and a few weeks with the new. I'll adjust quickly. Still the ribbon is a case of fixing something that wasn't broke rather than fixing something that is broken. I'm talking about the help feature which IMO isn't and has never been very helpful.

I had no problems loading the program and no problems with printing. I'm using Win 7 and have a fairly new computer. I ordered from Amazon. I always seem to have a good experience with Amazon and this was no exception. Fast delivery and produce arrived in perfect condition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Publisher 2010 is not good April 17, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Disc
I've used Publisher for 12 years to publish a magazine and I love the program. However I hate the 2010 version. MS has reworked what was a great program and fixed things that were not broken. They eliminated good tools from the 2000, 2003, 2007 versions for the sake of making change in my opinion. The new ribbon style toolbars makes it harder and far more time consuming to use than the older versions and if you want help it's practically non-existant. There was no comprehensive manual on the market for months so after waiting 6+ months I bought the first real manual from a Shelly Cashman series of textbooks. There is a basic version ($50) and a complete version ($85). I found the complete version a complete waste of money. It was apparent it was written by a team of scholars with lots of theory concepts and no experience. It's well illustrated, but redundant and very low level.

So I'm using 2010 and 2007 together which fortunetely the programs allow opening either one, so far with no hiccups. There are a few good features in 2010 that I do like, but the older versions are faster and have the features I depend on.

I've tried Pagemaker 6, Quark and In Design and find them all over rated and way over priced. In Design has a steep learning curve and it took me 3 days to assemble a 32 page magazine with it, whereas I do it all in Publisher in 4-5 hours. I saw a few reviews here saying you need to write in Word and transfer your work in. That's not true at all. I don't use Word hardly at all and do everything in Publisher including advertising design. At present I'm also writing a 400 page technical textbook and it's all being done in Publisher. The reason is the illustrations, photos and charts work in Publisher but don't work well in Word.

I'll continue to use 2010 but I'm asking MS to ask the people who use their programs more before they re-design a product that works. It's still a good program but 2007 is better.
