Publishing program

(1/3) > >>

I need to buy a publishing program. My research seems to lean toward CorelDRAW (a bit expensive) I expected it to be Microsoft publisher. Before I buy I would like some input. Anyone have a favorite for any reason.

 ??? [coffee]

What is the product you are wanting to create?

CorelDRAW is for drawing things.  Publisher is for making products. (Newsletters, etc)

Most of the things Publisher can do, MS Word, excel, or Powerpoint can do.

None of them are GREAT drawing programs, if drawing is what you want to do.

Newsletter, flyers, and posters. When I did the search for publishing programs CorelDraw was included.

Is anyone using Microsoft 360 for home? Do you like it?
