Microsoft Publisher - focus on design and layout to create items with visual impact

Access online resources to help you use Microsoft Publisher to design items, such as posters, where visual design and page layout is important.


Why you might use Publisher

Microsoft Publisher is a tool which focusses on the design and layout of pages to create visually rich resources such as handouts and posters.

Access online guidance and resources

Download PDF manuals via Moodle, or review online guidance within Microsoft's learning centre for Publisher covering key topics such as:

  • Getting started.
  • Create your first design.
  • Work with text and images, including styles and formatting.
  • Manage the layout of your design.
  • Create master pages as templates to repeat formatting on multiple pages.

In addition, review the guidance on storing and sharing files within our University Learning Pathways site to help you determine the best place to keep your document. Your University OneDrive is deleted when you leave the University, so it's best to create or move your file elsewhere unless it's personal to you.
