What can you do with Publisher?
Microsoft Publisher is an application included in some Office suites. It is somewhat similar to Microsoft Office in terms of functionalities. However, Publisher is more focused on the layout of pages and their design, so that you can make them ‘fancy’ publication.
For example, Publisher is used to make business cards, but also to make professional publications such as magazines. It works very intuitively, making it an easy entry-level program, where advanced programs like InDesign require a slightly higher entry level.
