C2. Why Move Your Publications Over to Microsoft Word from Quark, FrameMaker or other Desktop Publishing Apps?

Audio and Video


Most publications departments are receiving all of their content as Word files. Those word files (or the content from them) must then be moved over to an expensive desktop publishing system for final publication. In many cases, the desktop publishing system makes importing the text and formatting it difficult or tedious. Microsoft Word has come a long way in the last 10 years in terms of what it is capable of when it comes to laying out a publication. Further, Word can make things like automatic paragraph numbering, tables of contents, tables of authority, indices, and cross-references automatic (so they’re always right, even after editing). In this session, you’ll hear how one publications department is using Word, and we’ll show you some examples of actual publications with very complex formatting completely handled by Word’s native functionality.
