Final Reaction Paper

Which would you recommend for Desktop Publishing?
“I loved working with Microsoft Publisher, rather than Microsoft Word. Publisher was so much more fun to work with. It had a lot more of a variety to work with. For instance, it has different page designs and layouts. Also, in my opinion, Microsoft Publisher is a lot easier to work with. I find myself getting confused and not knowing where things are in Microsoft Word. In Publisher, everything is labeled more visibly on the toolbar. I would definitely recommend working with Publisher.” Michelle Mitchell

Similarities and Differences between MS Word and MS publisher Throughout the course of this semester, I have learned a lot about Microsoft Word and Microsoft Publisher. Microsoft Word is a word processor, designed by Microsoft, which allows you to create, edit, format, and save documents. Microsoft Publisher is a word processor which focuses more on page layout and design. The two processors share several similarities, as well as several differences. Both Word and Publisher are best suitable for beginner computer users, and both are pretty flexible when it comes to creating just about anything, except for databases, spreadsheets, or a few other things. Both Word and Publisher can be used to create business cards and newsletters. They both deal with text which can be formatted such as: font, size, color, bold, italic, etc. Both can contain pictures and images as well. Also, they have features such as: Clip Art, Word Art, color schemes, and text styles. Although Microsoft Word and Publisher share various similarities, they also share several differences. Publisher has limited word processing capability. Publisher holds the power to arrange the amount of text you want on one page and allows you to continue the text on another page. You can think of how a newspaper is arranged where an article on page 1 of a section might be continued on page 9 of another section. See Continue on page 2

Which is Better: Word or Publisher?
There is no fact statement that says which one is better; however, I can state my opinion and say that Publisher was better for me. When creating graphically rich print and e-mail newsletters, Publisher would be the best program to use because it has precise control over positioning text with images and other design elements. Also, Publisher works great for creating 3 or 4 panel brochures because of its many designs to choose from with optional space for customer addresses, and order, response, or sign-up forms. Publisher makes it fun to create brochures, newsletters, and much more. Word, on the other hand, is fun when creating research papers, or memos. When working with documents that require review or editing, Microsoft Word is great for this. Word has change tracking, inline comments, side-by-side compare, compare and merge, compare...
