Watch this video for a walk-through of the workspace features of Publisher.
In this video, I’m going to give you a quick overview of the main features of the workspace and other videos. We will go into more details about how each of these features work. So let’s start with the left side panel. We are currently on the pages thumbnail that opens the panel that shows you all of the current pages of your project. So in this project, I currently have one page at the bottom. Here, we have the option to add new blank pages, duplicate pages or delete pages. The next option would be our text panel and the text panel. We can quickly add a heading box subheading box or body text box. You can see examples of those over here on the workspace. We can also add copy work lines in either regular line format or primary line format. Let me go ahead and zoom in on this page to show you those.
Speaker 1 (01:10):
So here you see regular lines using a print font, um, same print font with primary lines, and then regular lines with cursive and regular lines with primary, I’m sorry, primary lines with cursive font, you can also add lines without a font below the text panel. We have the image library. This library does not come preloaded with images. You will need to add your own. You can upload those directly within the workspace, or as I’ve shown in a previous video through the home page, it’s very easy. You just click and drag images to put them on your workspace. Um, and then to work with those, you can also down here select and delete images. So you can manage the library as well. From this panel below the image panel, we have clip art. This is preloaded with the publisher and you click this drop down. You will see the different categories of available clip art. So there’s some frames, different shapes. Oh, we have call-outs so just different options there. This will grow over time below the clip. Art panel are your libraries. So every account will come with a, my template library. This will hold the templates that you have created. My projects will be your projects that you’ve created. And then every account comes with the pro school publisher templates. So when you’re working inside of these libraries, there’s a search feature. Sometimes also a filter feature, which will help you narrow down the options. And within these libraries can
Speaker 2 (02:59):
Click to see the different pages and then click and drag those to your workspace, to add them to your current project. Now, if you are a pro school member, you will also have this last option below, um, publisher that are the school templates. All right. So I’m going to go back to my pages panel so I can see pages of my current project. And then Ms. Move over to the right side for a quick overview of these features at the top. You see, we have layout. So if I were to add a new blank page to this project, you see it’s default is to be in a portrait layout. I can very easily click landscapes. Change that to a landscape layout
Speaker 2 (03:48):
Below that we have project tags here, I’ve added history and Egypt. You can add whatever tags you would like. These tags will be searchable from the home page. So when you’re looking at your current libraries, it will help you to find your projects more quickly below project tags. We have text properties. So all of his texts that I’ve created on the page, we can change if I click on one, so these options will show up, okay, we can change the fonts. We have a lot, a large variety of fonts available. You can change the font size. You can click here to change the line height. So that would be the space between the lines of text. You can also select to make your text bold italicized or underline, and you can also change the color below text properties, close these up below text properties. We have object properties, so you can select objects.
Speaker 2 (04:50):
Um, you can select one object and align it to the page, line it to the top, middle, bottom, and so on. Or you can select multiple objects and align them to each other, make them left, aligned center aligned, right aligned and so on. You can also with some objects such as text, um, give it a background with the fill color, give it a border, uh, changed the border, thickness the border style as well as changed the quarters, uh, quarter the corners and give them a radius edge. So a rounded edge. And lastly, in the right side panel, we have layers. So every object that you have created on a page, so you see here, we’ve got several objects we’ve created. They will be listed here. And the object at the top would be the layer that’s at the top. So if we were to move these layers around, uh, they, you know, one would be on top of the other. This is where you can adjust which layers on top. So you’ve got the option to move them up down. You also have the object here with this, um, eye icon to hide objects. So for example, if I start clicking this, you’ll see things on the page disappearing and then reappearing.
Speaker 2 (06:11):
And then we also have the object to our, the option to lock objects in their place, as well as delete and moving to the top navigation. You’ll see, we have zoom options, zoom in zoom out, copy and paste options. You could also use control V and quote control V to copy and paste objects on the page. We have undo and redo options, undo all which does exactly what it says. It will undo all of the actions that you’ve taken on that page. And then the last two options here, a PDF. This will actually create a PDF that you can download, that you can print and save to your computer. And then we have the option here save, which means it will just be saving that project to your account and publisher. We do have an auto save feature that will be automatically saving your project in the background, but it’s always a good idea to click that save button every once in a while, just in case something happens before an auto-save. So these are the main features of the pro school publishers workspace. Please watch our other videos for more details about all of these features.
