Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Publisher

I use Microsoft Publisher for all of my newsletters and reports as well as invitations and ads.
  • Extremely user-friendly.
  • Easily converts to image files and PDF.
  • Simple maneuverability.
  • Less expensive alternative to high-end graphics programs.
  • Would like more built-in graphics.
  • Would like smaller file size.
  • Would like the ability to curve text.
  • Fantastic looking publisher pieces without high cost software.
  • Efficient for productivity.
  • No real learning curve.
I have also used Adobe PageMaker for desktop publishing and simple design work but have found Publisher to be so much simpler to use. The navigation is easy, the interface is clean and the program is intuitive for even the most novice of users. The templates that come along with Publisher are also far better than PageMaker's.
While I have not directly used support for Microsoft Publisher, I have used their help files and found them to be useful. I have also found that most answers that I need can be found through simple web searches and chat platforms. In all though, there are very few times when the preloaded help files have not given me the answers that I need.

Microsoft Publisher is perfect for desktop publishing, simple designs and graphics. The program is not well suited for graphic design work.
