    I am a regular follower of you for the past few years.
    “I know there are not a lot of folks not using Microsoft Publisher and I do not know why other than the fact that they do not know how to use it. ”
    Yes! True
    I do not know about people living elsewhere in the world but what I am to write is almost the views of Indians.
    Many are used to Pagemaker about which you know better.
    Having used it for many years, when we try in MS Publisher we find it extremely difficult to align text justified, especially Indic languages.
    Even though the graphics and templates in Publisher are useful even to a layman, in Text area Publisher is just another MS Word. Publisher is supposed to be a DTP software but they follow the code of MS Word only and not the algoritham of a DTP software. When the text is aligned in Justified format and when Indic language is the input one can not adjust the lengthy uneven white spaces in between words and the most ugly look can not be avoided. Unless otherwise they do not improve it will not attract anybody.
