2.0 out of 5 stars why so slow.. May 10, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I probably have something wrong ( I MUST be). but I have been using Pub. for years and years, several versions over the years. I have a monthly task of creating a 1 page ad with high-res images, and my first attempts with the 2013 are simply WAY too slow. Even if I compress the images, it takes upwards of 5 + minutes just to re-position an image with stuttering delays, and very slow loading/formatting. - I have been repeating this same monthly task for 3+ years using two different versions of Pub. Never having this issue..

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst version ever April 24, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I have Publisher 2010 and enjoyed it.
This upgraded without problem, however you would like I have a 20 year old computer the way the program runs. Everything you do, from moving your mouse to clicking a button, has a delay of 1 to several seconds. It's virtually unusable. I thought maybe there was a problem with my machine, as I was having a few other issues in other programs, so I re-formatted and did a clean install of everything from the operating system up. Did it help? Nope. I am running a Core i7 processor with 6 GB of RAM in a 64 bit environment. No other program, including Publisher 2010 (which I re-installed and now use) has this problem. I'd love my money back.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worse than Publisher 2007 May 27, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I teach yearbook and I purchased Publisher 2013 to work on my school's yearbook while at home. Little did I know that it is so slow and laggy with pictures that it is completely unusable. At my school we have publisher 2007 which works perfectly fine with the exact same files and my computer is significantly better than the bargain basement machines that we use at school. Now I still have to work on the yearbook at school and I'm out nearly $100. Thanks for nothing Microsoft.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Publisher 2003 April 9, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download
Over the years I've used many versions of MS Publisher and always loved it. The 2013 version however is disappointing. There are many, many gripes I have with this version. I particularly don't like trying to change any picture; with Publisher 2003 you just double clicked it and it took you straight to a last directory you used, click the new picture and you we're done. With Publisher 2013 you have to right click the picture, select change picture, select change picture once more, select browse and force it to go your local directory, select the new picture and then without asking it puts a copy of the old picture off page and zooms back out to whole page view with both the old and new pictures selected. Terrible! What used to be quick is now slow and laborious. You'll end up continuously zooming back in to adjust the picture you were working on. There are no options to turn off this awful feature off. I honestly regret purchasing this version of Publisher.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy this July 18, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download
I have worked with Publisher 2007 and Microsoft Office products for years and have always been satisfied with the product. I downloaded this when we bought a new computer. There has never been (I mean NEVER) a time that while I was working on my weekly project that the software hasn't crashed. It stops working and if I don't remember to save every time I've made a change, the information is lost. I have searched their help information and even posted the problems on their blog, to no avail.

I cannot believe that Microsoft put their name on this product. I am very disappointed and will hesitate in the future to invest in Microsoft Office products.

1.0 out of 5 stars Have not been able to download it to my computer April 11, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
Other downloads for software have gone smoothly but this installation is horrible. I have to contact Microsoft and getting someone who can do something in a reasonable time frame if disgusting. I have spent hours and hours during a busy time trying to get the software I needed for a publication for a retreat. I had to do otherwise because I could not load the software. This week, I had a family reunion postcard that was stored in my previous version of publisher on a different computer, so I could not access it and had to do the entire thing over again. I had the retreat and then easter break and have not had time to spend hours with Microsoft. I contacted them again yesterday by email and told them I needed help resolving this problem. I was available after 6 p.m. eastern time. I have heard nothing from them. I am totally, totally stressed and disgusted with this whole thing. I cannot get my money back from Amazon and I cannot get help in a timely fashion with Microsoft. I am not satisfied at this time. Mary Evans mwevans1953@gmail.com

2.0 out of 5 stars Lost Feature February 18, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
We have used Publisher for years in our office. I purchased this version as an update on Windows 8. The main reason I use Publisher is to convert our newsletters and bulletins into .html format for use on web. That feature is no longer available since Publisher 2010 as I found out. If you want to convert find something else.
