  1. Thanks folks. Just gotta know where to look. So far Publisher is doing everything I need. Car123. I'd say most counties have their version of Boris.

Then I heard that the new version of Publisher can just open Indesign flies. Great news. Tried to open them but Publisher does not recognise them. Am I missing something? Was my information wrong? Please help.
