Typically used as a desktop publishing tool to create documents such as newsletters and brochures, Microsoft's Publisher boasts a wide variety of features. Using the tools available in Publisher, you may add and edit text, images and other objects. Because of the flexibility in using Publisher tools, you may also select from a collection of pre-formatted templates from which to create documents. These templates, such as day planners, may be used in lieu of trying to create a document from scratch.
