I’ve mentioned that I make a lot of my posters in Microsoft Publisher. But this may be about to change.
Publisher 2010 is driving me around the twist.
I am not alone in making this observation.
For my latest poster, I just gave up.
I went back Publisher 2003 for the initial layout. I did almost everything there, until I was ready to make some PDFs of the poster. Publisher 2010’s PDF export is fast and excellent, and I still like using that. There are one or two other last minutes that I might tweak in Publisher 2010; fixing typos and the like.
But going so far backwards is pretty sad.
