SUCKS. Designers, I don't care what they told you in college, It's not meant for page layout, buy Quark or indesign. Stop calling me with problems, get real software.

How dare you mention that awful crap in this forum. The same people who think Publisher is a real... anything are the same people who think FileMaker is a real database.

I've had no issue with Publisher for creating posters, programs, newsletters and the like. 2007 is currently favorite edition, very simple to get around. What's so bad about it Chris?

Try making a useable PDF that a commercial printer can use. When you contact a shop for a quote and tell them your files are Publisher, I promise they are laughing at you, not with you. That is, if they haven't hung up on you yet...

Google Docs and Photoshop are 100% of my workflow...

Publisher is about as useful as dental floss to a hillbilly.

Even a hillbilly can use deltal floss to repair things, if not for its intended purpose.

People used to hand me publisher files for tshirt printing. OK $100 to recreate that in a real program.
