Changes in Microsoft Publisher 2010 - What’s new

The ribbon

* The ribbon, part of the Microsoft Office Fluent user interface (UI), was designed to optimize key Publisher scenarios to make them easier to use. The ribbon in Publisher 2010 provides quicker access to all the commands and allows for easier future additions and customizations. You can also customize the ribbon. For example, you can create custom tabs and custom groups to contain frequently used commands. To help maximize the note-taking space on the page, the ribbon can also be hidden while writing.

Backstage view

* The Microsoft Office Backstage is part of the Fluent UI and a companion feature to the ribbon. The Backstage view, which can be accessed from the File tab, helps you find frequently used features for managing your Publisher 2010 files. (The File tab replaces the Microsoft Office Button and File menu that were used in earlier releases of Microsoft Office.) The Backstage is used to manage files and the data about the files, such as creating and saving files, inspecting for hidden metadata or personal information, and setting file options.

Simplified, cleaner workspace

* In the new workspace, users will see object boundaries only when they want them (for example, when they pause on or select an object), and alignment guides when they need them (for example, as they drag an object). Users can also move from page to page quickly by using the new page navigation pane, which displays single-page or double-page thumbnails.
* Note: The ribbon and the Backstage view are features of the Microsoft Office Fluent user interface, which is a feature of Microsoft Office 2010 applications. This it easier for users to find and use Office 2010 features. For more information about the Microsoft Office Fluent user interface, see Microsoft Office Fluent User Interface Resource Center.

Integrated print and preview experience

* Print and Print Preview are integrated so that it is easier for users to get a more accurate view of what their publications will look like when they are printed. This includes the ability to make print adjustments while viewing the effect of the changes in a large preview of their publication. Users can view multiple pages at the same time, view page boundaries, page numbers, and sheet rulers while in print preview, and even view a simulation of a two-sided document as if it were held up to a light — to see the front and back at the same time, as the publication will look when printed.

Save file as .pdf or .xps

* Users can save files in the .pdf or .xps file format. This feature can be blocked by using Group Policy. Also, .pdf files can be password-protected for an added layer of security.

64-bit edition

* Publisher 2010 64-bit edition can be installed on Windows 64-bit operating systems, and is backward-compatible with other versions of Publisher. Users can open, edit, and save any Publisher 2003, Office Publisher 2007, Publisher 2010 32-bit edition, or Publisher 2010 64-bit edition file on a computer that is running either a 32-bit or 64-bit Windows operating system. For more information, see 64-bit editions of Office 2010.
