  4. 4. In Publisher…
  5. 5. Your Template <ul><li>I created a template for you to easily “fill in the blanks” instead of starting from scratch. </li></ul><ul><li>It already includes the text boxes you need along with instructions on what to put in these text boxes. </li></ul><ul><li>Here’s how to save it: </li></ul>

  12. 12. Now, you’re ready to make changes to this template! <ul><li>Double-click “My Documents” and find the new document you just downloaded called “ Middle Passage Template .” </li></ul>
  13. 13. Editing the Template <ul><li>You may want to change the “theme” or design layout from the one that I used— </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Do this FIRST (before you start typing in information or adding photos). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Changing the layout/colors may affect the placement of text boxes, etc. So it’s better to do that before you have actual info. in the text boxes. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Click “Brochure Options” and/or “Color Schemes” in the gray area at the left. </li></ul></ul>
  14. 15. By clicking Brochure Options, you’ll have new designs to choose from.
  15. 16. Your Brochure <ul><li>Publisher wants you to see the whole page at once, but that means that the font may be difficult to read. </li></ul><ul><li>To enlarge the document, just click either the magnifying glass with a plus sign in it or select a % greater than 66%. </li></ul>
  16. 18. Your Brochure cont’d <ul><li>A 3-panel brochure has 2 pages. </li></ul><ul><li>Small 1 and 2 in lower left corner of document. </li></ul><ul><li>Page 1 includes the cover page, but it is actually “last” or furthest to the right. </li></ul><ul><li>This looks “wrong,” but trust me—it’s right! It will be perfect once it’s printed out and folded.  </li></ul>
