Working with Text

In Publisher 2010 text effects can make your publications more visually appealing. Learn how to use them in this free lesson.

Challenge!

  1. Open an existing Publication. If you want, you can use this example.
  2. Create a text box and add text.
  3. Change the text box fit settings to see the effect on your text. If you're using the example file, change the text at the top of page 1 to Best Fit.
  4. Connect an existing text box to a new one. If you're using the example, use the "West Rose High Student Wins Scholarship" article on page 2.
  5. Manually hyphenate at least one word in a text box.
  6. Apply Stylistic Sets to text. Make sure the text is displayed in a font that is compatible with Stylistic Sets, like Gabriola or Cambria. If you're using the example, use the text at the top of page 1 that you resized in step 3.
