Microsoft Office Publisher 2010 is the newest version of Microsoft’s desktop publishing application for small and medium businesses. This course is designed to help experienced Publisher users become more efficient and create complete, elegant publications. It also teaches users how to complete mail merges, ways to check their designs for errors, and the right questions to ask when dealing with a commercial printer.

Highlights of the course include learning how to use master pages and styles to ensure consistency, learning how to use Building Blocks to quickly and easily create new publications, and learning how to create mail and e-mail merges. This course also features information on managing graphics and design elements, where to find and set information regarding commercial printing, and how to customize Publisher.

Making a Publication Consistent
This section walks participants through the concepts of master pages and two page masters. They will learn how to customize master pages, use headers and footers, and use layout guides. Next, participants will learn how to add, modify, and use styles to create consistent text formatting. Finally, the course will introduce typographical tools which allow extra flourishes to be added to the font.

Working with Building Blocks
Building Blocks are pre-made elements that allow quick and easy construction of a publication. This section will walk participants through the creation of page parts, calendars, borders, accents, and advertisements. They will also learn how to format, customize, and save their own Building Block creations for future use.

Working with Mail Merges
Mail merges are often misunderstood as a difficult concept – this section will prove that this is not the case! Participants will learn the basics of a merge and learn how to use the Mail Merge Wizard. Next, they will learn how to perform a manual mail merge and perform a number of follow-up merge activities including printing and exporting the merge recipient list. Finally, this section will outline how to use the same mail merge fundamentals to create a catalog of products or services via a catalog merge.

Advanced Topics
This final section discusses a few final tools that advanced users should know about, including the Graphics Manager and Design Checker. Participants will then get an introduction to the world of commercial printing. Finally, participants will learn how to customize Publisher, including changing the interface color scheme and using additional languages.
