Creating a Publication for the First Time

The first time you create a publication, Publisher gathers information from you for its personal information set . Four different sets are available:

  • Primary Business

  • Secondary Business

  • Other Organization

  • Home/Family

After you provide the information for these sets, Publisher automatically plugs it into your documents, so you don t have to type it in more than once.

In this exercise, you will complete the Primary Business personal information set for The Garden Company while beginning work on the company s newsletter.
