If Publisher is opened, two panes appear: a Catalog pane and a Primary pane. By default, the catalog pane is set to the Publications by Wizard page, so this page should already be open.

Pubations by Wizard provides you with a set of customizable layouts. Newsletters, websites, announcements, invitations and more. You will find these options in the catalogue pane on the lefthand side under the heading Wizard. In each of these file types you will find many different types or themes to select from.

As we will be creating a newletter, let us select this formattoption. Select the orange point next to the newsletters name. There are two boxes in the top window: a work area ('the bigger box on the right) and the newsletters assistant ('the smaller box on the left).

Exit to complete the formating and allow you to exit the wizard and begin typing your own words and images. Once you have read the first wizard post, click Next to begin the four-step customization of your newletter. On the first monitor you can choose the colour pattern for your first newsletters.

You will then have further customization possibilities for your newletter. Notice: The right hand side email templates follow your changes at every stage of the email creation proces.

1986 Click Next to continue. The newsletter wizard will ask you if you want to add a wildcard for a postal adress. Select No, then click Next. Keep in mind that you can always go back to the Newsletter Wizard and change any part of the formatter. The Newsletter Wizard remains open by Default.

If you make these changes, what happens to the documents in the working area pane? You can read your newsletters in the working area pane. You will see speakers in different dimensions. These fields are called text frame and graph frame and are used to enter text and graphs.

Newsletters Wizard uses this example text and images (placeholders) to visualise the lay-out of your publications. If necessary, the wildcards are either completely erased or the text is erased and substituted by your own text. Now the text should be gone and you are prepared to add a word art name.

The text serves as the cover of your newsletters.

Read the menubar from lefthand to righthand: In the middle menue you can choose the typeface. On the right side of the screen, you can choose the text that is set to Best fit by defaults, which means that it will be as large as possible while it still fits into the text area.

In order to add pictures to your newsletters, click on the image place holder to choose it. Whilst we are still on the first page of the newsletters, there are a few other things to investigate.

In this area you will find a list of content for your newsletters. Just think, we only have three tales in this newletter. If this were the case, we would want to remove four lines from this spreadsheet. Mark (or highlight) the lower four paragraphs (or ?cells?) of this directory by moving your cursor over all four lines.

If you want to change the size of the index, click on the border above the words within this output. You have now chosen this border and you will see it. Hint: Another way to move a field is to choose it and then use the arrows on your keypad to move the area.
