Publisher 2016 for DTP - the Microsoft standalone program as a purchase version
Publisher 2016 is a popular version of Microsoft's versatile DTP program for designing publications for every sector: it offers all the functions needed to create professionally designed and print-ready advertising materials for offices, organizations and companies, as well as other documents, e.g. for pupils and students, as well as private users and the self-employed: whether business or serial letters, flyers or leaflets, books or brochures.
Intuitive tools support beginners as well as professionals in all functional areas with versatile templates as well as intuitive tools for image editing and layout to create printable documents. The user-friendly interface with a clear arrangement of all functions enables efficient work with the layout program and the creation of sophisticated print media in any quality.
The blue-green color of the program window, which is typical for MS Publisher, can be adapted to the newly available "Dark Gray" theme, for example, which offers a more neutral look for image editing.
The most important functions and features of Publisher 2016 briefly summarized:
- Interesting image effects such as shadows, glow effects, 3D effects as well as reflections are available for texts and images.
- Images and graphics can be exchanged intuitively via drag & drop.
- A column in the design area is available especially for editing multiple images.
- For publications as a digital print with an online photo service, a Publisher document can also be saved in JPG format.
Publisher 2016 is usually only available as a fixed part of MS Office versions Standard, Professional as well as Professional Standard, but not of Home & Business, Office 2016 Home and Student. Users of these two editions, as well as users who do not use any Office version, can also buy Publisher 2016 separately from Wiresoft. And since the 2016 version of Publisher is also supported by older Microsoft operating systems from Windows 7 onwards, users who want to continue using it will benefit from the software purchase in particular. The connection to Microsoft's OneDrive cloud services also allows them to use Publisher 2016 with others for online collaboration.
In the Wiresoft online store, you can purchase Publisher 2016 as well as the very latest and older versions, and also many other Office programs at particularly low prices as a single-user version. The following overview provides a detailed introduction and a presentation of the functions and features in Publisher 2016.
Overview of the range of functions of Microsoft Publisher 2016
In addition to the optimizations of the already existing functions, the Publisher 2016 version also offers some innovations, especially in the freely available graphics and templates, whereby the range of design options has been expanded even more.
Publisher 2016 documents also compatible with third-party programs
Due to the seamless cooperation of Publisher 2016 with the other MS Office programs, files from Word, Excel, etc. can also be imported during layout, such as charts and tables or already formatted texts.
In addition, the layout program is of course compatible with a wide range of popular Standard file formats, such as .JPG and .PDF, among others, which can be opened directly with it.
The files created in Publisher are saved in Microsoft's own .PUB format, this can also be opened with an Adobe layout program, for example, which offers the advantage of better compatibility when working together. As an alternative to PDF format, there is a specific Microsoft Publisher file format .XPS - for XML Paper Specification.
Note: However, unlike the 2011 version, Publisher 2016 cannot create HTML-based web pages.
Design templates available for each document type
When you open Publisher 2016, the program displays an extensive list of typical design templates in the most common formats: from invitation cards to A4 flyers and letters to multi-page brochures and even extensive catalogs. Each template contains certain predefined elements as a master document, such as headlines, section names, page numbers, etc., which can then also be customized and then saved as a new, personalized template so that they are available again for similar publications.
Colors as well as fonts and formatting can also be customized. The original template is always retained. This means that the basic design document and the new variant are available again the next time, saving not only professionals but also inexperienced users a great deal of time, since they can fall back on it again immediately the next time; in addition, this ensures a consistent look and identical output quality for all publications created with it.
Using building blocks for publications with an identical look
The so-called building blocks available in Publisher can also be used to maintain a uniform design across mailings, brochures and flyers. Building blocks are common design elements such as headlines, but also text frames, columns, etc. Users can either use the building blocks already available in Publisher 2016 or design their own based on them.
In addition, it is possible to add various effects such as shadows and reflections to images, but also to texts, in order to make them stand out.
Publisher 2016 also provides scalable SVG vector graphics that always retain their sharpness even when enlarged, and the 3D objects that are also available can be rotated 360 degrees at will to show a specific view.
Image and graphics editing in Publisher 2016
Often photos and graphics are not transferred 1:1 into a Publisher document, but need to be cropped or adjusted in color. All these tasks can be performed directly in the layout. The corresponding "Image Tools" menu opens by double-clicking on a placed image. Professionals can also use other more sophisticated tools to modify an image even further.
Publisher 2016 also provides a dedicated column in the design area for editing multiple images.
Image documents can be imported into a Publisher document either from the PC, the Microsoft ClipArt library or from the Internet via Bing image search or from an online photo album. This is done almost intuitively via the drag & drop function, which also allows the immediate exchange of images. After inserting or cropping, these can then be placed in the document with millimeter precision using the ruler function.
Using text fields for multi-page publications
If a longer text is to be inserted in a brochure that runs over several pages and is perhaps also interrupted by boxes or graphics, it is usually difficult to estimate the exact amount of text in a single field. Publisher provides several handy tools to ensure that no text is overlooked during layout: When larger text is inserted into a text box, a small box in the bottom right of the relevant frame uses an ellipsis to indicate that more text is present. The text frame in question can then be enlarged immediately with a mouse click. However, if the hidden text is to appear in another frame, this is done automatically by linking the individual text fields beforehand. This feature is particularly practical when texts are still being shortened or supplemented in the layout.
Share Publisher documents online
Users of Microsoft's OneDrive cloud services can save documents created in Publisher online, and the recipients authorized to edit them will then receive access via a link. For this purpose, the respective e-mail addresses can even be inserted directly into a document, which automates and speeds up the sending process. Thanks to the reliable real-time updates in OneDrive and the high security standards, collaboration is also particularly efficient.
Everything ready to print with Pack & Go
To ensure the desired quality of images and fonts when printing via a professional provider, the practical Pack & Go wizard automatically collects all files associated with a Publisher document and required for printing (such as photos, graphics and fonts) and packs them into a single file; this then only needs to be sent to the relevant print service or copy store or also made available via OneDrive. The Publisher version 2016 only uses the RGB color space for image files, so no further presetting is necessary here, only the fonts still need to be embedded.
Wide range of printing options in any quality
Extensive options are available inPublisher 2016 for printing flyers, brochures, invitation cards and other advertising materials. When sending personalized mailings, for example, it is possible to automatically add the names of the recipients and other personal information such as customer numbers and addresses individually.
Depending on the target group, further options are available for creating printed materials in the desired quality. For example, a Publisher document can also be created in the usual .JPG format for the digital printing of an online printing service.
