  • 2. Images with transparent areas don't print properly.
    I have a project to make an A4 poster with Images and text. 2 of the images have transparent backgrounds created in an imaging package (Paint Shop Pro) as .PNG files. When I insert these images into the Project they display fine but don't print properly - only a vague outline of the darker parts print. However on Print Preview the document looks perfect. The other non-transparent area images on the page print fine. I am using Publisher 2003 on Windows XP Pro printing to a networked OKI C5200N Colour laser printer on A4 size. What could be wrong here?
  • 3. Text settings in Publisher and Word
    When I type (insert text) into Publisher and Word, the typing appears on my monitor in a very light gray color which is very difficult to see. I have checked the font color settings, etc., but cannot figure out how to make my typing appear on my screen as it should black type.
  • 4. Publisher should allow the deletion of multiple pages
    I wish publisher would allow for the deletion of muliple pages much like the options available when printing pages.
  • 5. Backup on file close
    Is there any way to make Publisher create a backup copy of a file as you close it after making changes to a publication. I sometimes forget to 'save as' when I have revised a publication so when I close the orginal - which I intended to keep - it gets overwritten. I know it asks if you want to save changes, but I forget that I haven't actually 'saved as' under a new name! Word creates backups - for which I am grateful as I can then open them and re-save.

Sorry Ian. Unfortunately, no version of Publisher comes with a macro recorder.

However, you can use Shortcut Manager for Publisher, available at
 http://www.**--****.com/ , to assign keyboard shortcuts to commands in
Publisher, and you can use the Visual Basic editor to write macros.

5.Can you record a macro in Publisher like you can in Excel?

In Excel I use the feature to Record a Macro.  Excel records the keystrokes

don't know how to code VB.
