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...
Great product, but beware of Microsoft rules. I've used MS Publisher for many years and particularly like the 2010 version. (I've tried 2013, and it is the first version I haven't cared for.) It is very user friendly, installs quickly, and includes a variety of templates - pamphlets, posters, stationery, greeting cards, brochures, resumes, and much, much more. It also includes access to Microsoft clipart, which is apparently only available now to those who own a Microsoft product.
I had used Publisher at work for many years. Now that I'm retired, I wanted to get it for my home use. I tried to purchase directly from Microsoft, but they no longer sell the 2010 version. So I purchased it from a reseller on Amazon. The product loaded and ran beautifully under Windows 8.1.
Two weeks after installing Publisher 2010, my new laptop failed and had to go into the shop for repairs. The manufacturer had to replace the hard drive, which of course means...
I have used multiple versions of Publisher for well over two decades. And this is essentially is the same product, updated for Windows 7.
It is made for small documents, probably no more than 10 pages, and really, it is best for documents of no more than 4-6 pages. Company newsletters, menus, forms, labels, signs, and the like are the mission of Publisher. Not great, but very workable, 4-star program, consistent, and easy to use. And stable, which is important.
It is totally lacking in any automation, like table of contents, index's, list of figures, etc. Yes, you can have one, but you create it just like any other text box, and if you move a story from one page to another, you have to go back to the index or TOC and modify them by hand. Importing anything by using something other than a copy-and-paste method is largely impossible. Heck, even page numbers, which ARE automated, have limited places where you can place them. Typical of Microsoft-you can have...
