5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for the non-designer
As an engineer I was looking for help with layouts, fonts, formatting and all those soft and woolly things that make the difference.

This book delivered exactly what I was looking for and more, and is only slightly let down by being 14 years old and hence references some fairly ancient software.

I have no idea why it hasn't been reprinted and fully...

I have no idea why it hasn't been reprinted and fully recommend it if you can get hold of one !

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Enough, 30 Sep 2009

This review is from: Desktop Publishing and Design For Dummies (Paperback)
All I wanted to do was learn how to set the margins in a booklet I am publishing. Because the pages would have been printed on both sides, that is, page one on one side of the page, and page two on the reverse side, I needed to print in duplex.
My problem was either, a)the margins continually altered of their own accord, and/or b) the inner margin, the one nearest the spine of the book had to wider than the margin at the outer edge of the page (it is in all paperback book publications). I could just not get the settings to be accepted.
Why can I not find the answer to my problem in this publication for 'Dummies'. Obviously, Dummies in the good ol' U.S.A. are more intelligent than the Dummies in the U.K.
