How it works!
MS PDF Publisher provides you with different types of publication options to start with. Simply, click on one of the publication types in the main window or in the list on the left side of the main window to view a list of templates that will take you through the process of making basic design choices for the publication. These choices include color schemes, font styles, and more.
Frames and handles:
Each publication is composed of different frames, such as text frames, picture frames, table frames, and shape/object frames. Click on different areas of the calendar to know the different frames. Handles, little circles on the corners and sides of the frame will be seen. The handles help you show which frame you have selected. They are also used in resizing the existing frames. MS PDF Publisher provides these feature for the comfort of the user to create publications easily and quickly.

When the cursor turns into a four directional arrow, click and drag the text frame to the desired location.
Resizing of frames:
To resize a picture frame, in MS PDF Publisher, click on the picture and rest your cursor on a corner handle. When your cursor turns into a diagonal line with arrows on the ends, click and drag inwards at a diagonal to make it smaller or outwards and at a diagonal to make it bigger.
