Archived from groups: microsoft>public>publisher>prepress (more info?)

Considering the sophistication of latest version of Microsoft Publisher and
its ambition to compete with other publishing software on the market, I would
really appreciate if it could include the capacity to insert footnotes. This
would allow us to use Microsoft Publisher to work on publications that
require the use of references to other published work. The other option is of
course to use Microsoft Word - but the latter becomes indeed very tricky (if
not impossible to manage) when it includes a large quantity of pictures and
captions.
Thank you in advance,
Anna

Publisher is a Desktop Publishing application. To create a long document with
footnotes wouldn't work with text boxes that have to be linked as required in
Publisher. You can create footnotes manually. You are far better served using
Word for long documents.

What rubbish. We use Publisher for long documents and using Word for them
would be difficult and unwieldy. If Publisher had a Footnotes option (like
all other reputable Desktop Publishing applications) it would be a great
addition.
The fact that it doesn't support footnotes makes the MS Team look foolish,
and it seems like they are not listening to the users of Publisher.

Just saying use Word is pointless. We want to be able to use Publisher WITH
footnotes.

I agree. Everything from Microsoft says, use Publisher where complicated
graphical layout is required, word where long organized text is involved.
But I need both! I have a bulletin with long orqganized text, as well as a
graphical layout!
