What's New and Improved in Publisher 2010

So, the photo editing improvements for Office didn't make it into Publisher 2010. Well, what has changed? In addition to getting the Ribbon and Office button and sharing a common look and feel with the rest of the Office 2010 suite, there are also a few Publisher-specific improvements.

Workspace

  • New visual page navigation with nice sized page / spread thumbnail previews
  • Template layouts preserved when substituting, cropping, or otherwise manipulating images in a template
  • Object outlines only appear on hover or when an object is selected
  • Page margin guides can appear as you drag the edge of an object near them and then disappear when not needed
  • Automatic alignment guides that only appear when relevant

Images/Type

  • Picture manipulation improvements including picture insertion, alignment, panning, cropping
  • Text formatting improvements including ligatures (with OpenType fonts - also in Word 2010) and Stylistic text -- with previews (for adding flourishes)

Printing/Sharing

  • Print preview lets you 'flip' 2-sided documents to see more easily how it will print on each side
  • Backstage View is where you'll also find the commands for saving Publisher files as PDF or XPS and commercial printing options

And in this quick first look you can see screenshots I made during the process of creating a simple template-based greeting card using Publisher 2010.

Information on improvements and new features of Microsoft Office 2010 and its individual applications is based on statements from Microsoft, its employees, and users of the Beta and Technical Preview versions of the Office 2010 Suite and may be subject to change or modification in the actual release.
