Use frame borders, shadowed boxes or tinted frames to divide the text into more readable chunks.

The shapes available are Rectangle, Rounded box, Ellipse and Star.

Greenstreet Publisher Line / Arrow Styles

Line / Arrow Styles

You can use Publisher to draw lines in your documents. Drawing lines directly in Publisher can be especially useful for basic charts and graphs or as design elements.

If you close up a line you have drawn directly into Publisher, the shape you create acts in exactly the same way as a shape you have drawn and can be used as a frame to insert objects into.

Drawing straight lines is simple. All you need to do is select the Line tool and click where you want the points on the path to be.

Use curved lines to create design effects in your documents or to create your own uniquely shaped frames. Simply select the Curve tool and click on the page where you want the curve points to be.

You can choose an arrow style for one of both ends of your line.
