Fully Customizable Courseware For Trainers

Upgrading to Publisher 2010 Complete


Easily edit and rebrand as your own


Our one-level Upgrading to Publisher 2010 Complete training courseware will help students who are familiar with earlier versions of Publisher upgrade to the 2010 edition. It will also allow students who are familiar with Office 2010, but who have not used Publisher, to gain a basic understanding of the program.

Section One is all about getting started. To begin, the new features of the application and the interface are covered. Then, students will learn how to customize the ribbon interface and the Quick Access toolbar.

Sections Two and Three provide in-depth information on each of Publisher’s standard tabs, as well as a brief look at each contextual tab.

Section Four covers new publication features. The first half of the section focuses on creating and modifying templates. Then, picture-formatting tools and typography tools are covered. To wrap up the section, participants will learn about the re-designed print features as well as native PDF and XPS support.

Section Five wraps up the course with a look at Building Blocks, which includes page parts, calendars, borders, accents, and advertisements.

By the end of this Upgrading to Publisher 2010 Complete training course, students will be able to hit the ground running with this popular desktop publishing program. As always, all Velsoft training materials are fully customizable.
