Summary: Leave it to MS products. You pay a bundle for a newer version, but the basics are, it remains the same as the old version. I worked with 2003 publisher before retiring. I had hoped when I was asked to do our church weekly bulletin, I would have found newer programming in the 2010 version I purchased for my personal use... as I said, leave it to MS to come up with another costly product that remains the same.
Conclusion: The set up is very similar to Word 2007. Therefore, it didn't take much to acclimate. I was hoping for more editing capability with pictures. Also, the text tools are pretty basic and don't allow for the creativity I was hopping for, but in all it's not a poor product. It does what it says it will do.
Summary: I really like this product and, for the price, it can't be beat. You can order a free trial version from Microsoft and they will send you a $30 rebate coupon. Then buy the software at a local store as cheaply as possible, should not be more than $130, and send in for rebate. Effective price is less than $100. I did all of my collateral materials for my new company using this software, including brochure, web site, business cards and direct mail pieces.
