Publisher 2016 for DTP - the Microsoft single user program as purchase version
Publisher 2016 is a popular version of Microsoft's versatile DTP program for designing publications for every area: It offers all the functions required for creating professionally designed and printable advertising materials for offices, organizations and companies, but also for other documents, e.g. for pupils and students as well as private users and self-employed persons: whether business or serial letters, flyers or leaflets, books or brochures.
Intuitive tools support beginners as well as professionals in all functional areas with versatile templates as well as intuitively usable tools for image processing and layout for the creation of printable documents. The user-friendly interface with a clear arrangement of all functions enables efficient working with the layout program and the creation of sophisticated print media in any quality.
The blue-green color of the program window, which is typical for MS Publisher, can be adapted to the newly available theme "Dark Grey" for example, which offers a more neutral look for image editing.
A brief summary of the most important functions and features of Publisher 2016:
- For texts and images, interesting image effects such as shadows, lighting effects, 3D effects and reflections are available.
- Pictures and graphics can be exchanged intuitively via drag & drop.
- A column in the draft area is available extra for the processing of several pictures.
- For publications as digital print with an online photo service, a Publisher document can also be saved in JPG format.
Publisher 2016 is normally only available as an integral part of the MS Office Standard, Professional and Professional Standard, but not of Home & Business, Office Home and Student. Users of these two editions, as well as users who do not use an Office version, can also purchase Publisher 2016 separately from Wiresoft. And since Publisher 2016 is also supported by older Microsoft operating systems from Windows 7 onwards, users who wish to continue using this version will benefit from purchasing the software. Via the connection to the Microsoft cloud services of OneDrive, these publishers can also use 2016 with others for online collaboration.
In the Wiresoft Onlineshop you can get beside the version Publisher 2016 also the very latest as well as older versions and also many other Office especially low-priced as single user version. A detailed introduction and a presentation of the functions and features in Publisher 2016 is given in the following overview.
Overview of Microsoft Publisher 2016 features
The Publisher 2016 version offers not only the optimisation of the existing functions but also a number of new features, particularly in the area of freely available graphics and templates, which further extend the range of design options.
Publisher 2016 documents also compatible with third-party programs
Thanks to the seamless cooperation of Publisher 2016 with other MS Office programs, files from Word, Excel etc. can be imported during layout, such as charts and tables or already formatted texts.
In addition, the layout program is of course compatible with a large number of common Standard, such as .JPG and .PDF, which can be opened directly.
The files created in Publisher are saved in Microsoft's own .PUB format, which can also be opened with an Adobe layout program, for example, which offers the advantage of better compatibility for collaboration. As an alternative to the PDF format there is the specific Microsoft Publisher file format .XPS - for XML Paper Specification.
Note: Unlike the 2011 version, Publisher 2016 does not allow you to create HTML-based web pages.
Design templates available for each document type
When you open Publisher 2016, the program displays an extensive list of typical design templates in the most common formats: from invitation cards, A4 flyers and letters to multi-page brochures and even extensive catalogues. As a master document, each template contains certain predefined elements, such as headlines, category names, page numbers, etc., which can be individually adapted and then saved as a new, personalized template so that they are available again for similar publications.
Colors as well as fonts and formatting can also be customized. The original template is always retained. This means that the basic design document and the new variant are available again the next time, saving not only professionals but also untrained users a lot of time, as they can access it again immediately the next time; in addition, this ensures a consistent look and identical output quality for all publications created with it.
Use modules for publications with identical look
The so-called building blocks available in Publisher can also be used to maintain a uniform design across mailings, brochures and flyers. Building blocks are common design elements such as headlines, but also text frames, columns, etc. Users can either use the building blocks already available in Publisher 2016 or create their own building blocks based on them.
In addition, it is possible to add various effects such as shadows and reflections to images, but also to text, to make them stand out.
Publisher 2016 also offers scalable SVG vector graphics, which always keep their sharpness even when enlarged, and the 3D objects, which are also available, can be rotated 360 degrees to show a specific view.
Image and graphics editing in Publisher 2016
Often photos and graphics are not transferred 1:1 into a Publisher document, but have to be cropped or adjusted in colour. All these tasks can be performed directly in the layout. The corresponding menu "Image tools" opens by double-clicking on a placed image. Professionals can also use other more sophisticated tools to modify an image even further.
For editing multiple images, Publisher 2016 also provides a dedicated column in the design area.
Image documents can be imported into a Publisher document either from a PC, the Microsoft ClipArt library or from the Internet via Bing image search or also from an online photo album. This is done quasi intuitively via the drag & drop function, which also allows the immediate exchange of images. Using the ruler function, these can then be placed in the document with millimetre precision after insertion or cropping.
Use text fields for multi-page publications
If a longer text is to be inserted in a brochure, running over several pages and perhaps interrupted by boxes or graphics, it is usually difficult to estimate the exact amount of text in a single field. Publisher provides several practical tools to ensure that no text is overlooked during layout: When a larger text is inserted into a text box, a small box in the lower right corner of the box indicates with an ellipsis that more text is present. The relevant text frame can then be enlarged immediately by clicking on it. However, if the hidden text is to appear in another frame, this is done automatically by first linking the individual text fields with each other. This feature is particularly practical when texts are shortened or added to the layout.
Share Publisher documents online
Users of the Microsoft cloud services OneDrive can store documents created in Publisher online, and the recipients authorized to edit them are then given access via a link. For this purpose, the respective e-mail addresses can even be inserted directly into a document, which automates and accelerates the sending process. The reliable real-time updating in OneDrive and the high security standards also make collaboration particularly efficient.
Everything ready to print with Pack & Go
To ensure that the desired quality of images and fonts is guaranteed when printing via a professional provider, the practical Pack & Go assistant automatically collects all files (such as photos, graphics and fonts) linked to a publisher document and required for printing and packs them into a single file; this file then only needs to be sent to the relevant print service or copy shop or also made available via OneDrive. The Publisher Version 2016 uses only the RGB colour space for image files, so no further presetting is necessary here, only the fonts have to be embedded.
Various print options in any quality
Publisher 2016 offers extensive options for printing flyers, brochures, invitation cards and other advertising materials. For example, when sending personalized mailings, it is possible to automatically add the names of the recipients and other personal information such as customer numbers and addresses individually.
Depending on the target group, further options are available to create print media in the desired quality. For example, for digital printing of an online printing service, a Publisher document can also be created in the usual .JPG format.

The Office Program Publisher 2016 is available in two standard versions: 32-bit and 64-bit.
