Transcript:Publisher Publication SetHi, I'm Don Schechter for About.com Computing.
Today I'll show you how to create sets of publications with the same design using Microsoft Publisher.
This is a great if you would like to publish a few different documents such as business cards, calendars, newsletters, and letterhead, all with the same look for your business or home.
Find Design SetFirst open Microsoft Publisher. Now click Design Sets in the task pane on the left. A list of subcategories appears and you can choose which will suit your needs. Most business type documents will be found under the category Master Sets.
There are many different designs to choose from.
Today I'll make an informational postcard for a business. Just double click the document with the design you want.
Publication Set TextNow you can enter your information into the text boxes provided. Format text like you would in MS Word using the toolbar at the top to change the font, size and style. I'll change the title font.
Publication Set SizingIn the task pane to the left you can choose the size of the postcard and what kind of information you want on the second side. I'll choose address only. You can also choose to have multiple copies per sheet if your document is less than a full sheet.
To switch between the sides click the page icon at the bottom of the screen.
Publication Set ColorsIf you'd like to change the color scheme click Color Schemes on the task pane. Many options appear. Just click one to apply it.
Changing FontIf you'd like to change all of the fonts, click Font Schemes at the top of the task pane. Just click one of these options to see it applied to your document.
Delete in PublisherTo delete a text box or a picture select it, and press delete.
Adding Pictures & GraphicsTo insert a picture or logo that you already have on your computer, click the Picture icon on the toolbar on the left. Find your picture or logo, and click ok. You can place it anywhere on your page and resize it. I'll put mine where the generic logo was.
Now that you know how to use the design sets feature in Publisher, you can create many different documents for your business or for home.
