Description: 


Publisher is a desktop publishing program that allows people with basic layout skills to create a wide variety of publications for desktop printing, commercial printing, email distribution, or viewing on the web. An array of new and improved tools help users efficiently create, customize, and reuse materials that are tailored to an organization's specific needs.

In the 2010 version, the Ribbon, which was introduced in Office 2007 and replaced traditional menus and toolbars with a set of task-based tabs, can be customized to suit the user's needs. The Ribbon's new File tab displays Microsoft Office Backstage view, which provides users with commonly accessed commands when opening or finishing a document and groups together related tasks.

Other changes include more efficient printing, new object alignment technology, new photo placement and manipulation tools, building blocks of content, and fine typography options.

Publisher includes a library of hundreds of customizable design templates or blank publications, including newsletters, brochures, flyers, postcards, websites, and email formats. More templates are available on the web and can be searched for from within the application.

The Design Checker identifies common design errors in commercial print, web, and email publications prior to distributing or printing. Support for commercial printing includes four-color process printing, spot color, and press-ready PDF files.

Catalog Merge facilitates the production of frequently updated materials such as datasheets, catalogs, and price lists by merging text and images from a database.

32-Bit and x64 Versions: The installation media for this product include two sets of DVDs and can be used for either 32-bit or x64 systems.

Important Volume Licensing Information: With Office 2010 suites and applications, organizations can choose between two types of volume license keys for product activation: a Key Management Service (KMS) license key or a Multiple Activation Key (MAK). Organizations will be provided with both types of keys on the Microsoft Volume Licensing website.

Microsoft recommends KMS activation only for organizations with at least 50 networked computers requiring activation for any combination of Office 2010 suites and applications, including Project 2010 and Visio 2010. Organizations with fewer than 50 computers requiring activation or organizations with non-networked computers should activate their products using a MAK. also offers instructions on how to use a MAK or KMS key to activate volume editions of Office 2010.

Acquiring the Installation Media and License Key: Installing this product requires installation media and a license key. Installation media will be shipped to you free of charge.

The license allows you to use the installation media to install the product on as many computers as you have received donations for. This quantity is specified in the donation email sent to your organization email address after your eligibility has been verified and your administrative fee has been received. A separate email will give you information about obtaining your license key.
