There's a new 'Page Navigation' pane, which is helpful in getting an overview of the document (and rearranging pages if you want), and Publisher's photo-editing is - at last - the same as Word's (since 2007 small documents actually could be made to look better in Word!).
The greatest reason to choose Publisher as well as Word is when you're making documents to send to a commercial printer, when you can choose the "Save for Commercial Printer" command - outputting pdfs at a higher resolution than the Office/Word 'print to pdf' command. It's also better with bleeds (commercial printers all want a 3mm or 5mm 'bleed' around your document, and you'll need to see how it looks with the bleed.
Overall, it's a good, mid-range dtp program that has been - finally - updated properly. I found it a worthwhile upgrade from Publisher 2007. In terms of market 'pitch', I now much prefer Publisher to Serif (the look and feel is more modern, I find the program quicker in use, and it has a quick learning curve). For high-end use I'd still look to Adobe, but it should suit the small-medium size business perfectly. Amazon's price is very good too (undercutting Microsoft's download price at time of writing)
I've been a PagePlus user for years but Publisher has caught up on what I consider essential features, such as generating PDFs for commercial printing. More seriously, I've had a couple of annoying glitches with PagePlus X3 and X4 (highlighting text and moving text boxes; so far Serif technical department can only say that they are aware there is an issue). My hope is that the Microsoft product is going to be totally compatible with Windows 7 64 bit version. We'll see but it looks very promising so far.
Previous reviewers are understandably disappointed about the lack of web design, which should have been flagged in publicity, but I think Microsoft are right to separate web design from DTP as they're so different. It must have been tempting to leave it there as an extra but I think it would have unbalanced the DTP concept. I take the point that Scribus is free and a professional, continually evolving product but I've briefly tried it and I found it rather intimidating, it reminded me of Quark Express. Publisher suits my un-technical, visual approach to design. I prefer the context sensitive ribbon to going through menus (a concept I've already enjoyed using in Serif products) and it keeps throwing up little extras, like the ability to translate text. I'm sure I'll find a use for that. The alignment guides and the way you can get text to expand to fill a text box speed up work too.
I might have deducted one star for the lack of a manual but you can soon navigate to the specific help you're after. Ideally I would prefer to sit down with a cup of coffee and browse through a paper manual. There's a PDF introduction to Publisher but, as far as I can discover, no full PDF manual is included.
Having purchased a new ASUS notebook as a Christmas present from my family, I decided to treat myself to the new Publisher DVD as I had had excelent results from Microsoft Publisher when using Windows XP. I was terribly disappointed with this new Publisher 20210, as now it links me permanently to the web - which I find extremely intrusive, and actually ended up having to have this product installed for me through the web. Not at all what I had wanted as I had to pay further costs with my credit card for this procedure! All in all this was a very unsatisfactory experience. The technician that helped install this was extremely pleasant and helpful which to some extent softened the blow, but the whole installation process took far longer than expected, and frankly I wished I hadn't bothered! So far, I have not used this as much as I thought I would because I find it clumsy and complicated with too many options whcih I would far rather invent or make up myself. I feel there must be a simpler Publishing package than this - but have no idea where to find it! I would not reccommend this version if you are like me faint hearted!
