  1. View/Studio/Text Frame does provide some basic capabilities. InDesign CS 5 (I don't know about later versions) gives similar capabilities, just approached a little differently. QuarkXpress includes some border frame designs, which can produce a variety of nice frame options. I have used Affinity Designer to create more of a custom frame and imported it into Publisher, but I don't want to spend a lot of time creating this sort of thing. Does Publisher have, or will it have, provisions for extensions?


  2. Publisher doesn't seem to allow creating a table within a text frame (Mac). It has to be created off to the side and dragged in.

    Other programs, e.g., InDesign, allow a table to be expanded by tabbing past the last cell. It's a convenient shortcut.

    Moving a table's position seems to require a trip to the Move tool. It would be convenient to hold down the Command/Control key while in Table mode.

  3. This may be redundant, but... InDesign and QuarkXpress both allow text frames to be defined on master pages, and used on document pages. To have to add frames on document pages that merely duplicate what you can see from the master page, and link them over and over again is counterproductive. Looking at how the competition provides these capabilities should carry over into the design of a competitive product. If you can improve on them, fine!
