Overview

Microsoft developed Publisher based on the strategy of giving people who have no design experience the assistance they need to create professional-quality publications, ranging from newsletters and flyers to letterhead and invitations. Since its first release, Publisher has made a clear mark not only in the desktop publishing category, but also on the entire software industry, with its introduction of wizard technology, which has continued to evolve and is now incorporated into virtually all software available today.

Publisher 2000 continues to lead the business desktop publishing category in technology. It includes over 2000 professionally designed publication templates, automated design expertise, and a flexible Wizard model that enables users to utilize the power of the wizard at any time for more professional results. Publisher includes over 200 fonts, thousands of pieces of high-quality clip art, photographs, and Design Gallery elements plus, Web sounds and backgrounds, all of which enable users to create professional-looking publications unique to their business needs. In addition, Publisher 2000 now provides users with a complete publishing solution-from printing to a desktop printer or local copy shop, to printing to a commercial printer with 4-color separations (CMYK) or spot colors for more economical, longer print runs and higher quality results. And, as a member of the Office family of applications that look and work alike, Publisher combines its professional design expertise with the ease of use of Office to offer users the easiest-to-use desktop publishing software to date.

The key focus areas for Publisher 2000 are:

  • Ease of use: Publisher's familiar menus and toolbars offer users the ease of use of working in Word, with an easy-to-use 2D-layout paradigm for creating great looking print or Web publications, and the professional design guidance to create professional-looking publications.
  • Professional results: Publisher 2000 includes over 2000 professionally designed publication templates from newsletters and flyers to brochures, catalogs, and Web sites that enable users to carry a consistent look across all their publications.
  • Complete publishing solution-from print to Web: Publisher 2000 provides the complete publishing solution for all users' communication needs from print to the Web.
