Nice piece of software, most functions work fine

I've only used this for one project, creating a set of christmas cards and their packaging for a local charity. It has done the job well, the software has been reliable and consistent. It seems the Lite version has the essentials needed for most basic publishing. I found only one or two minor issues which I was able to work around. The shape menu icons select the wrong shapes, but the text menu works fine as a work-around. I had trouble adjusting lines horizontally or vertically with the Arrange pane, however the snap to vertical/horizontal mechanism when moving line endings acted as a workaround.I've not used all the feature yet so there may be a few more quirks.

For a piece of free software this is fine, the bugs in these basic features, although not insurmountable, prevent me from considering upgrading to Publisher Plus though.

Nice and easy to use

Found this software when MS Publisher no longer available, its very simple to use and does what i need it to do.

Basic but OK

I downloaded this to create christmas cards, but it suffers from one small but significant flaw. It doesn’t seem to allow printing to the edges of the paper. My HP Photosmart 6510 does, but the settings in this app don’t.

Choosing the buisnaess card template produces a single card, not an array. To do this you need to export the card to pdf and use it in MS Word for Mac. This then causes problems of registration if you have printing on the back of the card!
