Word Chapter 6
Creating a Professional Newsletter
You will have mastered the material in this project when you can:
Professional looking documents such as newsletters and brochures, often are created using desktop publishing software. With desktop publishing software, you can divide a document in multiple columns, wrap text around diagrams, and other graphical images, change font and font sizes, add color and lines, on so on, to create an attention-grabbing document. Desktop publishing software such as Adobe PageMaker or QuarkXpress, enables you to open an existing word processing document and enhance it through formatting not provided in your word processing software. Word, however, provides many of the formatting features that you would find in a desktop publishing program. Thus - stop complaining, and be creative; do what desktop publishing can do in MS Word! :)
