In this article, you learned how to create and format text boxes to reproduce a somewhat complex DTP layout originally created in Publisher. As you saw, the basic capability is there for small projects like our example. Word lacks some of the features that make larger DTP projects easier, so if you try to use Word for all your DTP needs, you may end up taking the long way around to a result that a real DTP program could do in a few clicks. You may also find that you want capabilities that Word lacks entirely, such features that help standardize multi-page document layouts between pages. If that’s the case, check out Microsoft Publisher (for non-professional or occasional DTP projects) or Adobe InDesign or Quark XPress (for professional use).
